New theme song

We went to see WALL-E yesterday, so all day we've been singing along with Michael Crawford.
Put on your Sunday clothes, there's lots of world out there
Or the words have been rolling around my head. Which makes a pleasant change from reading the weather forecast that shows extreme high temperatures for Sunday and the start of next week. The wind from the northwest should continue to move the fire slowly down Tassajara creek towards the monastery.
Get out your brilliantine and dime cigars
That's in the future which is maybe where it should stay for now. Today the fire has again been creeping down the creek. The maps we receive show little movement for now on the eastern flank of the fire.
We're gonna find adventure in the evening air
The NBC crew filmed a fire-drill, talked to the Abbot and the Director and then left. There still seems to be lots of media interest in Tassajara with an early morning interview on NPR being bumped by the death of a Senator.
Girls in white in a perfumed night
There is now a helibase at the junction of Carmel Valley Road and Tassajara Road and we believe that the helicopters are scooping up water from the Narrows. They have instructions not to drop fire retardant on the rock formations visible from the road as the Forest Service doesn't appreciate their rocks being painted pink or orange.
Where the lights are bright as the stars
