Indigenous Peoples Day instead of Columbus Day
Posted:Oct 14, 2019 8:10 pm
Last Updated:Oct 14, 2019 8:13 pm

First it was the city of South Lake Tahoe, California and then it was Reno Nevada that instead of celebrating Columbus Day they voted to skip Columbus Day and instead voted Indigenous Peoples Day to celebrate our Native Americans. Me having Native heritage I approve of this.

Although I am mainly of Irish and English I do have heritage from 3 native tribes. Mostly Cherokee form my dad and his dad, Mohawk from my dads' mother and Blackfoot from my mother's side. Now one of the DNA research companies is telling me that I have heritage from a tribe from Mexico that migrated to Texas.

It is only the city of Reno that this is affected and the rest of Nevada is still the same and only the city of South Lake Tahoe that has made this change. The rest of California is still the same.

Lake Tahoe was once inhabited mainly by the Washoe Tribe and Reno has a Paiute res and there are also some Shoshone.

The casinos in downtown Reno who own the casinos still had their Italian Festival over the weekend.
WTF IOWA!!!!! I had to cook!

Saturday mornings I look at the college football schedule for the day and pick my choices for the day. On the Iowa vs Michigan game I picked Iowa and Husband took Michigan.

Our bet was the loser would cook dinner Saturday night and the winner would pick what the loser had to cook. I normally cook dinner anyway being the great housewife I am but it would have been nice to have Husband cook for a change.

Well I was told by some people that Iowa had a good football team this year, damn liars! Michigan won the game 10 to 3. But as I said I normally cook dinner anyway so I did not really lose anything. At least I got a couple of pats and squeezes on the butt while cooking but I usually get those also.

I might not be Martha Stewart but I keep Husband happy.

The Kokanee salmon are gathering to spawn in Lake Tahoe
Posted:Sep 25, 2019 2:19 am

Husband and I will be going up to Lake Tahoe on Friday to see the salmon in Taylor Creek which is where most of the kokanee from Tahoe spawn. Kokanee are land locked salmon that are close to the sockeye salmon. They spawn and the eggs hatch and the fry swim off into the lake. It is the same process as the sea going salmon but they go into Tahoe instead of the ocean.

Also in the lake are Rainbow, Brown and Mackinaw trout.

There is a trail that runs beside Taylor Creek that goes from highway 89 down to the lake. There is also a trail that goes on the other side west side of the highway that goes away from the lake but it is not as well maintained

Caution must be taken cuz there are black bear in the area but just keep a safe distance from them and do not do anything to agitate them. The Forest Service strongly advises that people do not try to take selfies with the bears. The adult male bears can get up to around 400 pounds. Best not to take yappy little dogs cuz they irritate the bears and it is also advised that you do not carry food cuz the bears do have excellent noses. One could lose their lunch.

There are other animals and birds that one might see on the trail: such as beaver, skunks, porcupines, squirrels, Mallard ducks, another water fowl that is like a duck but with a long skinny pointed bill/beak, golden or a bald eagle, owls, hawks and other birds. There are also cougars/mountain lions that occasionally wander into populated areas and the pesky coyotes that will also come after a small yappy dog. On the main trail down to the lake there is a walk way down to an underground aquarium that sometimes has fish in it.

Keep a close eye on if you have some with you.

Street Vibrations in Reno this week

Street Vibrations is an annual event here in Reno. This year it is going from September 25th to the 29th. It is not quite as big as the Sturgis Rally but is a good one for the West Coast,

I remember this event started in Carson City, the capital of Nevada but it got to be to big for the small town of Carson City and moved onto Reno, which is only 30 miles away but much bigger.

It started as a of guys that owned Harley Davidson dealerships, stores and shops across the nation but then many other just average citizens that owned Harleys started participating. Outlaw motorcycle clubs and gangs also got in on the act and there has been a few problems as a result of the rivalry of those people. Most of the large resort casinos do not allow members of the outlaw groups to wear their colors or fly their patches inside the casinos. I will not mention the names of any of the outlaw groups but they are the most notorious and well known.

I have noticed over the years that many of the bikers are getting away from the choppers and riding stock Harleys without the modifications.

Husband and I are looking at Harleys and even though we are Reno residents we do plan on participating in this event each year. Our goal is to join a club that does accept couples like us that have a masculine man and a trans woman as his wife and partner. We do have our compound together now with the 3 other couples like us and they have shown and interest in this too. So if we can't find an existing group maybe we can start one with 4 couples and have others like us join. There are gay motorcycle clubs. All 4 of us wives in our compound are looking forward to being part time biker bitches.

I have noticed that there are more women starting to ride Harleys at this event and not surprisingly many of them are bisexual or lesbian..

First of all happy birthday! I wish you many more!

I do have something for your TBT but unless you post something on Thursday I can't deliver it. I did friend you as you can see but when I try to message you I get the OP upgrade page and they want money.

I was a gold member on OP years ago and just did not think it was worth it. But if you post a page on Thursday I will post a story about my first time out in public as a girl.

Anyway Happy Birthday!

Hot air balloons gone ...Air races happening now
Posted:Sep 15, 2019 12:31 am

In Reno and the area does have lots of events going on during weekends. This last weekend we had the Air Balloon Races. Now to me watching air balloons race is about as entertaining as watching paint dry or grass grow. The people that attend this event do not spend too much in the resort/hotel/ casinos cuz they do not gamble drink or party in the bars and lounges. They are very early morning people. They do rent rooms and eat some meals in the restaurants but just are not quite like a typical person that comes to Reno to gamble, party and visit the near by legal brothels.
One night my relief floor manager called in sick so I had to work a double shift and on into graveyard which meant that I would be going home right after the sun came up. As I got to my car in the parking lot I looked up and saw all the balloons in the air at the start of the race and they were coming my direction. There must have been at least 20 or more and with the sun shinning on them and with the beautiful colors on them it was spectacular site. I stood outside my car and watched them until some of were passing over my head. They are over with and gone now.

This weekend in Reno we have The National Air Races. These airplane races do have classifications but the top and what seems to be the American P-51 Mustangs which is probably the most notable WW2 airplane cuz of the way it changed the war's air superiority. Spectators have been killed and injured at these races when mishaps and crashes occurred. This year the Air Force Thunderbird's are putting on a demonstration in their F Fighting Falcons In past years there also have been the Navy Blue Angels.

Having trouble finding final numbers on Burning Man
Posted:Sep 7, 2019 11:07 am
Last Updated:Sep 13, 2019 12:14 pm
I did find an article saying the Burning Man promoters have reached an agreement with the BLM who is in of the Black Rock Playa, to cap the attendance of the event at 80,000. Last year Burning Man had 100,000 on the playa.

They do provide security and Burning Man does hire their own staff of security which is made up of officers from different agencies; Nevada Highway Patrol (State Troopers), sheriff deputies from different counties, police officers from different cities, Tribal Police and I have even heard of a few federal cops volunteering their time. Not only do the cops come from Nevada but also from California, Utah, Arizona and other neighboring states. They do set up a command post and have a basic set of laws they enforce plus they do patrol the event area. Black Rock Desert is US government land so federal laws have to be enforced. Crimes of violence, sexual assault, theft and drug dealers are handled. Marijuana use is more or less tolerated now.

Medical staff is donated and volunteered from doctors; M.D.s and specialist. Also PAs (physician assistants), nurse practitioners, paramedics, nurses and other medical staff and have medical tents set up. There are paramedics with ambulances and also a med-i-vac care flight helicopter available.

There are many weird situations with outlandish costumes and even total nudity and sex acts in public. It was once frequented artistic people who brought their sculptures and creations to display and they still go to Burning Man.

There was one reported death this year and some dust storms.

They even had a 747 jet airliner there on display this year. There were news reports of the plane being escorted out the NHP (Nevada Highway Patrol) at 25 MPH and did restrict traffic and cause a back up. Glad I wasn't there!

I tried to find pics just from 20 but pics from previous years got mixed on the same page.

It looks like Burning Man will be going on for years to come.
