Made the trip down on Saturday to assist on the haul out before the storm ( snuck in two rods just in case and fished a bit).  Peeked over at the Breezee Lee Ramp and there was only a few boats. We hauled.

My thoughts and prayers to everyone who was in the path of Sandy… Caribbean, Haiti, Cuba, and America. Time to lend a hand or give some towards helping.

Knowledge bestowed upon me this week:

Jain devotees pour milk, haldi (a mixture of turmeric and water), rose petals, marigolds and other flowers and colored liquids over the monolithic statue of the Jain sage Gomateswara (also known as Bahubali) during the first day of the Mahamastak Abhisheka ceremony which occurs every 12 years. This statue is regarded as one of the largest monolithic statues in the world and is located in Shravanabelagola, a city near Bangalore, India.
