Those of us who have more than a few years under our belt occasionally take the time to stop and look back at the trails we have traveled. With that look back toward our younger years we often bring back memories - pleasant memories mostly. Memories of being kids . . . of going to the movies on a Saturday afternoon and paying a whole nine cents for admission. And seeing the good guys like Hopalong Cassidy, Lash LaRue, Wild Bill Elliot . . . Bob Steele, and other cowboy stars from a bygone era.
We would sit on the edge of our seats and see if the good guys would win again, or if the bad guys would finally prevail. Often we’d have to wait a week because the adventures were in serial fashion. You’d have our hero right in the middle of an impossible situation . . . surely he could not escape this time. We’d just have to come back next Saturday to see how, or whether, he escaped.
About this same time there were ‘The Big Three’ cowboys. Not only were they on the silver screen but there was this newfangled invention called the television set that had regular programs starring our favorite good guys. Soon, ‘The Big Three’ emerged as the most The Paper - 760.747.7119

popular of the B Western movies. They were Gene Autry, Roy Rogers and Hopalong Cassidy. Oh, there were a lot of other movie and tv cowboys . . . and we’ll get to them in a bit. But first, let’s look at “The Big Three.” I’ll start with Gene Autry first because that’s the cowboy with whom I have the closest, somewhat tenuous, contact.
Back in 1968 and 1969 I managed KGUD radio station in Santa Barbara, for Dick Clark (yes, that Dick Clark). My secretary was a gal named Peggy Rogers. She had been Gene Autry’s private secretary for years at Republic Studios and had his home number as well as his private office number. They spoke frequently by phone. While I never met Mr. Autry I heard plenty of tales about him.
His real name was Orvon Grover Autry. Autry was born in 1907 and died in 1998. We remember him as a singin’ cowboy . . . but he was also quite an astute businessman, probably the most successful of ‘The Big Three.’ Autry’s career blossomed from the mid ‘30’s hrough the 1950’s.
All of The Big Three were continually top votegetters in the annual Motion Picture Herald and Boxoffice polls and popularity rankings. As the B western faded all three migrated from movies to the tv screen, successfully. All had successful radio programs. All three made regular personal appearances at huge venues, such as Madison Square Garden. Autry’s Melody Ranch was a tv show that debuted in 1940 and ran for 16 years on CBS, later moving into syndication out of the tv studios in LA. We have visited the set of Melody Ranch many times.
Autry and Rogers, being singin’ cowboys, made records but Gene was clearly the most successful. Autry amassed the largest "empire" of the three: he owned TV and radio stations as well as the California Angels baseball team. And in addition to his own weekly TV program, Gene's Flying A Production company made other 1950s shows such as The Range Rider, Buffalo Bill Jr., The Adventures of Annie Oakley, and more. We are still listening to his songs today, particularly at Christmas time when we hear about “Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer,” “Frosty, the Snowman,” and “Here Comes Santa Claus," and another favorite, later in the season, "Here Comes Peter Cottontail."
Gene had over two dozen "charted" tunes, and one of his earliest was "That Silver Haired Daddy of Mine," which became a success after his performances in “The Phantom Empire” (Mascot, 1935) and his first starring role for Republic Pictures, “Tumbling Tumbleweeds,” 1935. Sgt. Autry was in the U.S. Army Air Force, flying supplies in the China-India-Burma theater of war, and served for 4+ years. After the war, Gene returned to Republic to finish out his contract obligations in five new films, the first of which was “Sioux City Sue,” (Republic, 1946). He then created his own production company and moved to Columbia Pictures for a new round of oaters. While Autry was in the service, his role of “King of the Cowboys,’ was overtaken by Roy Rogers.
Roy Rogers had nine "charted" songs between 1938 and 1975, the last being "Hoppy, Gene and Me" and his first was "Hi Yo Silver" which was popularized due to the radio program and the The Lone Ranger (1938) Republic serial. There is a priceless story about Roy Rogers:
Roy Rogers was born Leonard Sly in 1911, on a pig farm near

Duck Run, Ohio. When he had reached the height of his fame as Hollywood's most glamorous cowboy star, he happened to be making a personal appearance in Chicago, and he got the idea for a little experiment. It was a studio requirement that Roy always wear his cowboy duds in public and one day he had been out walking in the Loop, attired in his sky-blue outfit and big white hat. Crowds of people pushed him around, wanting his autograph, wanting to talk to him, to touch him. It was that way every time he went out. Back in his hotel, he thought about how nice it would be for a change to walk the city streets without being recognized. It had been a dozen years since he had worn a business suit, but now he called in a tailor and ordered one, a plain blue serge, a pair of black oxfords, and a white shirt and plain necktie and an ordinary hat. He put all these things on and went for another walk. Nobody gave him a second look. He enjoyed the sensation so much that the next day when he boarded "The Chief" for Los Angeles, he was

These great questions and answers are from the days when ' Hollywood Squares' game show responses were spontaneous, not scripted, as they are now. Peter Marshall was the host asking the questions, of course:
Q. Do female frogs croak? A. Paul Lynde: If you hold their little heads underwater long enough. Q. If you're going to make a parachute jump, at least how high should you be? A. Charley Weaver: Three days of steady drinking should do it.
still wearing the civvies. He lounged in the club car and no one recognized him and then, walking through the moving train he arrived in a vestibule between cars and came face to face with a man walking in the opposite direction. The two stared at each other and Roy recognized a former resident of Duck Run, Ohio. But before he could say a word the other man cried out: "Great God A'Mighty! Leonard Sly! WHIRR YOU BEEN?"
While Autry was in the service, Roy's “King of the Cowboys,” was released in April 1943, and that became the official Rogers billing. 1942 was Gene Autry’s last #1 popularity rating --Rogers took over the crown in 1943, and would hold that #1 rating through the end of the B western genre in the early 1950s (with Autry coming in a consistent #2). Roy Rogers rode a number of horses during his film and television careers --- they were all billed as "Trigger." In over a quarter century performing in public, he used three main Palominos:
Q. True or False, a pea can last as long as 5,000 years. A. George Gobel: Boy, it sure seems that way sometimes. Q. You've been having trouble going to sleep. Are you probably a man or a woman? A. Don Knotts: That's what's been keeping me awake.
Q. According to Cosmopolitan, if you meet a stranger at a party and you think that he is attractive, is it okay to come out and ask him if he's married? A.. Rose Marie: No wait until morning.
Q. Which of your five senses tends to diminish as you get older? A. Charley Weaver: My sense of decency.
Q. In Hawaiian, does it take more than three words to say 'I Love You'? A. Vincent Price: No, you can say it with a pineapple and a twenty. Q. What are 'Do It,' 'I Can Help,' and 'I Can't Get Enough'? A. George Gobel: I don't know, but it's coming from the next apartment.
1. the original (known on movie sets as "the Old Man") 2. Little Trigger (featured on the cover of Life magazine in 1943 and in SON OF PALEFACE (1952)) 3. Trigger, Jr.
The original Trigger was born in 1934 on a ranch in San Diego. Looking at today’s horribly inflated salaries for movie “stars,” it’s interesting to see what the cowboy stars of yesteryear earned:
Roy Rogers’ initial salary was $75.00/weekly and at the end of the contract(s), his pay had escalated to $1000.00/weekly.
Rogers then signed a term picture arrangement which included a $10,000.00 bonus and pay of $21,000.00 plus a $500.00 clothing allowance for each of 11 films over a 2 year period. In February 1950, Republic exercised their option to extend that contract for six more films at $21,667.00 each. Q. As you grow older, do you tend to gesture more or less with your hands while talking? A. Rose Marie: You ask me one more growing old question Peter, and I'll give you a gesture you'll never forget. Q. Paul, why do Hell's Angels wear leather? A. Paul Lynde: Because chiffon wrinkles too easily.
Q. Charley, you've just decided to grow strawberries. Are you going to get any during the first year? A. Charley Weaver: Of course not, I'm too busy growing strawberries. Q. In bowling, what's a perfect score? A. Rose Marie: Ralph, the pin boy.
Q. It is considered in bad taste to discuss two subjects at nudist camps. One is politics, what is the other? A. Paul Lynde: Tape measures. Q. During a tornado, are you safer in the bedroom or in the closet? A. Rose Marie: Unfortunately Peter, I'm always safe in the bedroom.
Republic and Roy agreed to another extension for his final two westerns at $25,000.00 each. Quite a difference from today’s pay scales. Roy Rogers died in 1998.

Because of their popularity, “The Big Three” were the ones that brought in the $$$ for their film production companies ... and theater owners flocked to show their films ... and that caused them to be more popular ... and on, and on.
William Boyd was the other member of “The Big Three.” His real name was William Lawrence Boyd. He was born in 1895 and died in 1972 of heart problems. Bill Boyd was best known as “Hopalong Cassidy.” He was the third part of the Big Three but it was Gene Autry and Roy Rogers who battled for the

number one position in popularity polls.
Boyd was the ‘senior, mature, cowboy’ who was still quick thinking, quick acting, and was always the good guy. Shortly after his family moved to Oklahoma, both parents died and William was forced to quit school and toiled in the state's oil fields. He later worked his way westward at an assortment of odd jobs, orange packer, laborer, and night watchman in California, while trying to break into movies.
Boyd's prematuring gray hair added dignity to the character, who didn't smoke, drink, or swear. He played 54 Cassidy episodes before producer Harry "Pop" Sherman dropped the series in 1943. Boyd then took over as producer and turned out 12 more episodes. He later acquired all rights to the Cassidy character, and when television came along, he made a fortune from exhibiting his old films, from the production of new ones, and from a variety of by-products tied in with "Hopalong Cassidy." I can remember being the proud owner of a Hopalong Cassiday Lunch Bucket and a black twin holster set with two “pearl handled” cap guns. Three of Boyd's four marriages ended in divorce.
Boyd starred in 66 full-featured Hopalong Cassidy films, 52 half-hour television programs, and 104 radio shows. His horse was ‘Topper,’ a white horse that contrasted with his dark blue clothing.
Other Notable Cowboy Stars and Sidekicks
In his first eight films, the first appropriately titled CALLING WILD BILL ELLIOTT, Elliott played a character with his own screen name for the first time. He was teamed with George Gabby Hayes, probably filmdom's top comic sidekick, and leading lady Anne Jeffreys who demonstrated her versatility as a schoolmarm, Indian maiden, saloon singer and other roles. Elliott continued with the trademark firearms and paint horse, called Sonny, and a new shirt (back to the square frontal button arrangement).

oldtimer on film, in real life Hayes was the exact opposite serious, well read, well dressed. He was also well liked by all that knew him and worked with him ... and to this day, he remains as one of the most recognized and remembered players of the B western. Pretty good legacy.

"Wild Bill" Elliott Real name: Gordon Nance 1903 or 1904 - 1965 Elliott in mid-1944 became, on tv at least, Fred Harman's comic-strip cowboy, Red Ryder. Republic had done a popular 1940 ADVENTURES OF RED RYDER earlier. Now the role was Elliott’s. In addition to working with Gabby Hayes, he also worked with another famous, now infamous, actor. Bobby Blake, who grew up to become actor Robert Blake, played Little Beaver, Red's young Indian sidekick, in all sixteen films. The only wardrobe change was chaps for Elliott and a shirt with arrow pockets. The twin stag-handled butt-forward guns remained, even though Harman had drawn his character in the comics as carrying only one pistol worn in traditional fashion. And Elliott began riding a black horse, Thunder, to fit Red's comic book horse. After his career all but ended, he moved to Las Vegas where he hosted a weekly TV show interviewing guests and show-
George Francis “Gabby” Hayes 1885 - 1969
George “Gabby” Hayes is well known to many ‘mature adults.’ He was associated with each of the ‘Big Three” at one time or another. Once known as simply George Hayes, later as “Windy” Hayes, and finally as his best known character part, “Gabby.” Hayes is probably best remembered as the sidekick to Roy Rogers, and they appeared together in 41 films - their first was SOUTHWARD HO (Republic, 1939) and last, HELDORADO (Republic, 1946). George Hayes was born in Wellsville, New York, on May 7, 1885, and during his teen years he joined some traveling shows. Burlesque and vaudeville work followed. He married Olive Ireland in 1914, and the two would be together for over forty years, until her death in 1957. Gabby and Olive had no children. His first major role was portraying 'Windy Haliday', the sidekick to Hopalong Cassidy at Paramount. The total Hoppy films in which Hayes played 'Windy Halliday' is eighteen. In 1939 Hayes switched to Republic Pictures and his first sidekick role with Roy Rogers was in SOUTHWARD HO (Republic, 1939). He did 41 films with Roy Rogers, but these were separated into two bunches - in between, Hayes was the saddle pal to Wild Bill Elliott in his 1943-1944 series of eight, as well as the first two Red Ryder oaters (which also starred Elliott). Gabby had some great sayings that were always good for a chuckle - there was "yer durn tootin," "durn persnickety female," "young whipper snapper," and "Yessiree Bob."

Duncan Renaldo: Renault Renaldo Duncan Born - April 23, 1904, Romania Death - September 3, 1980, Goleta, California
The life of Duncan Renaldo would have made a pretty good movie without any fictionalizing. Despite the official birthdate and birthplace listed above, Renaldo told some interviewers that he actually did not know when or in what country he was born. The confusion led to his arrest at one time for being in the United States illegally, and an eventual pardon by no less than President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Although he had an extensive film career, Renaldo would wind up being best remembered --- like Clayton Moore, Kirby Grant and others who moved from the big screen to the small one --- for his television series, THE CISCO KID.
He was arrested in 1934 for being in the country illegally and spent about a year in prison. His rescuer, according to the definitive book on the Cisco Kid (The Films Of The Cisco Kid by Francis M. Nevins, World of Yesterday Publications, 1998), was Republic Studios head Herbert J. Yates who signed Renaldo to a seven-year contract in 1937. He got a presidential pardon for any charges of illegal entry. With one exception Duncan Renaldo would play Cisco for the rest of his career.

San Marcos will set a trend towards looking like a metropolis instead of your typical suburbia by embracing a transit modeled development predicted by local experts and leaders.
Workers broke ground recently on the upscale 370-unit Palomar Station. It will be an apartment and retail project built near the North County's 5 year old Sprinter rail line. As this project goes forward, it is expected that similar projects will begin to develop as the area continues improving its economic growth pattern.
The term "smart growth" is based on these types of developments taking advantage of existing transportation corridors. This is a departure from the normal building of subdivisions that tend to grow outward taking up valuable resources. The project will include a plazastyle street located in the center of Palomar Station. There will be pedestrian and bicycle pathways to the Sprinter and local shops. Along with some beautiful landscaping this wil be a
beautiful way to bring life to the area, and SANDAG agrees. They recently gave $2 million to San Marcos to make this happen. While all this sounds great, there are some local people and some officials that are worried that along with the metropolitan growth will come metropolitan problems like gangs, ghetto areas, and crime. Most people are optimistic and look forward to this project and area development coming to fruition. •••••
Food for Fines
Here is an idea that the Excondido Library hopes will make a difference in some locals lives while helping you get rid of those pesky library fines. It is called the Summer Food for Fines program.
Running from now until the 31st, all library card holders should bring in healthy, non parishable food items, (basically canned foods) to the Escondido library for up to $20 Vancouver, BC
Vancouver, British Columbia is a must-see. Much like London, Paris, Oslo, Copenhagen, Vancouver is one of those ‘special’ places. How special? I can tell you about 20 years ago when we first visited Vancouver I fell so in love with the city, with its people, with its culture . . . I was ready to emigrate.

We are here for an international Kiwanis convention. Evelyn is doing all the convention stuff; that bores me so I’m just revisiting and enjoying the fruits of Vancouver.
On the taxi trip from the airport to downtown ($40.00, including tip) we notice absolutely beautiful, often mansion-like homes, on both sides of the roadway. In the business section, every store front had an active business open and doing business. Same with downtown. It is thriving! Heavy traffic, lots of pedestrians, merchants doing a brisk business.

Most items brought in will receive $1 for each one. Larger more expensive items such as infant formula or canned hams for example, will receive $5 each. The one stipulation is that you can not use the funds for fines in collections or for charges on damaged items.
The food donations will go to the Interfaith Community Services in Escondido. They distribute the food to needy families in the North County Area. The goal of the drive is to collect over 10,000 lbs. of food. The Escondido Library is located at 239 S. Kalmia St. Go to: library.escondido.org/SRCfood-drive.aspx or call (760) 839-4684

Vancouver has a rich history . . . . many churches downtown have been here for ages. The patina of age is clearly evident . . . while modern architecture is right next door in the form of gigantic skyscraper type hotels . . . lots of restaurants, mostly pricey, but you can find cozy, out of the way, places that are priced quite reasonably. The Farmer’s Market is about two blocks away from our hotel, the Sheraton Wall.
Walking the streets you see all kinds of people that look remarkably like Americans, talk like Americans, but they are, mostly, Canadians. You see the occasional homeless person, one poor soul I saw was sleeping in a concrete and steel enclave at the base of our hotel. One irritating incident: Having walked a number of blocks I sat down at a bus stop to rest up. A man waiting there asked me the time. I told him I thought it was about 4pm, but, “wait a minute. I can tell you for certain.” I pulled out my cell phone and told him it showed 4:45 pm. “Ah,” he said, “it’s time to know Jesus. Jesus saves.”
“Oh, crap. Goodbye!” I said and began to walk away.
“You’re leaving?” he asked. I did-
ing the move to remove red light cameras, Encinitas will be keeping theirs.
The city of San Diego removed their cameras in late February of this year. The reason for this move was due to the increased number of court cases, the ballot measures, and the overall public complaints. Encinitas however, came to the conclusion during a recent council meeting, that now is not the time to remove the cameras.
There are two sets of cameras in Encinitas, one at the intersection of El Camino Real and Encinitas Boulevard, and the other is at El Camino Real and Leucadia Boulevard. These cameras provide a "great public safety service" according to local sheriff's deputies. The cameras discourage drivers from running red lights and also keep the patrol vehicles from having to chase after the traffic offenders. The fees that Enciitas receives is about $92 per ticket which amounts to $85,000 per year.

I don’t care where you go, you’ve got these ‘Holy Willies’ who are bound and determined to interrupt your life to convey to you their message of salvation. They are an absolute nuisance and I very much resent them intruding on my life,.
In fact, I just figured out a plan. On my flight home I think I’ll hold a big sign in my lap saying “Let’s Talk about Jesus.” That should ensure that I don’t have a lot of passengers seated close to me.
Though it has been overcast and misting for a good part of our stay thus far, it is of no consequence. We are still enjoying ourselves. Evelyn, solving the world’s problems while voting on by-laws and amendments, and me, just watching the world go by and savoring every moment of it.
‘Hoppy Roy and Gene...’ Cont. from Page 3 Cisco had ridden a palomino named Diablo in his earlier threesome, and kept the name for his paint horse in the later movies and TV series. Pancho got a palomino named Loco. As with the Pancho character himself, the horses' names came out of the radio series. The final Cisco movie sequed nicely into the TV series, which was shot in color (which would come in handy once color television came along). The series featured many actors and actresses previously seen in Bwesterns, and produced 156 half-hour shows. The show continued even when Renaldo was injured during the fourth season in 1953-54 in a rock fall and hospitalized through nine episodes (the producers had Cisco wearing masks, disguised as a ghost and other gimmicks where they could use doubles. They had Renaldo record his lines from the hospital, and inserted previously-shot footage of him). The sixth season proved the final outing for the show, although it has been popular in re-runs.

John Mack Brown was a real southerner, born in Dothan, Alabama, on September 1, 1904. He was an All-American running back on the University of
Alabama football team, and scored two of their three touchdowns in a winning effort against the favored Washington Huskies in the 1926 Rose Bowl. For his All-American exploits on the football field, Brown was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1957, and the Rose Bowl Hall Of Fame in 2001. After graduation, he tried his hand at coaching for a short time. He went to Hollywood and began doing bit parts around 1927 in silents. A good looking gent, Brown became a fairly successful leading man at MGM for nearly five years, appearing opposite such famous actresses as Mary Pickford, Greta Garbo and Joan Crawford. Brown's first major cowboy role was portraying the titled gunslinger in MGM's BILLY THE KID (1930). Johnny Mack Brown made about 165 films during a Hollywood career that spanned about 25 years

He appears to be a little young to have experienced hard prejudice.

San Onofre Lay Offs
The recent announcement that 600 non-union workers will be laid off shortly from the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station should serve to highlight the plight of all non-union workers, regardless of the professions in which they are employed. Unfortunately, only a lucky few have the financial resources on which they can fall back at such times. Non-union workers are treated

in our society very much like cheap disposable plastic bags provided by our grocery stores. They serve an important function for taking your produce to your car, are often used in the home as waste basket liners, and eventually end up in the garbage dump. This is the brutal fact of our throw-away society. I am amazed that we Americans have been brainwashed into acdepting it as our normal way of leading our lives. We are an exceptional country in this regard.
I was fortunate in that I spent my working years as a tenured faculty member at a technological university, with the same privelidges as a union worker; I had permanent employment, without the nagging uncertainty of being laid off, or outsourced. This freed me up to contribute to my profession in full measure, as can been seen by my Wikipedia biography. Cheers, Sorab K.

Dental schools require time to make major curriculum changes to incorporate all the newest developments that are constantly being discovered.
“We learn something new every day.” This adage certainly holds true especially in the fields of medicine and dentistry today. With technology changing so much and so rapidly, it is now more important than ever for your dentist to be a lifelong student.

What Should Your Dentist Know?

The “drill them and fill them” of old times has passed, with the new paradigm being that of comprehensive treatment to preserve optimal oral and whole body health. This new model necessarily requires your dentist to incorporate a broader examination of ALL the factors affecting your health and necessitates the inclusion of more treatment modalities to meet their patients’ needs and working with other dental and medical specialist to cure their patients. Although your medical doctor does a cursory check with his tongue blade, your dentist and hygienist have a more intimate relationship and are better able

to detect problems their patients may be encountering. With the new technologies dentists can more easily discover diseases, cancers, and infections, refer patients, and save lives. Some of the newer treatments learned through continuing education include: Sleep Apnea and snoring which are becoming epidemic, can now be detected, tested and treated, allowing you to stay healthier and more rested, while avoiding surgery.
New treatments of migraines and jaw joint issues provide patients new remedies, often without the need for strong pain medications, many of which are addictive. New Oral CT scans allow precise planning for placement of bone and implants. Implant designs continually get better and enhance our ability to eat and speak efficiently even at an older age.
Cosmetic dentistry has progressed to where we not only look at the factors affecting your smile, but face as well. We can incorporate the use of implants and oral appliances to help our

Q. Who stays pregnant for a longer period of time, your wife or your elephant? A. Paul Lynde: Who told you about my elephant?
Sadie is literally the perfect dog. She is wonderful with other pets, absolutely loves children and is fantastic with very young children. She is sweet and playful and funloving. Her favorite toy is a tennis ball, she will chase it all day. She is trained and well behaved. She is energetic and spunky, but also loves to just lay down and cuddle to watch a movie with you. Sadie is only 3 yrs old and has had such bad luck and we are hoping to change that for her. She ended up in the shelter for the first time when her owner passed away. You would think one of the owners loved ones would come for her but this never happened. Fortunately she was adopted by a young family with children who loved her dearly but when they lost their home this past year and had to move in with a relative Sadie was not welcome to join them and found herself in the shelter a second time. This time Sadie's time ran out at the shelter and in a desperate attempt to save her life one of the shelter workers put her on our transport unexpectedly. You could imagine our surprise, when little Sadie jumped out of the truck. We would love to find Sadie's final and forever home. If you think, you may be the home for her then please email us at email@example.com.

Last week we focused on the irrelevancy of Gigahertz or “clock speed” as a measure of computer performance. This week we’ll begin a discussion on the true measures of PC component performance “benchmarks.” In addition we’ll cover some other hidden specifications that are import to the value, performance reliability and quality of your next PC.
Of the major “appliances” in the average household or small business, the PC is the one least understood. Most of us understand the features we want in a refrigerator, air conditioner, range, washer/dryer,
Celebration by Future Generations
Upon offering his signature, John Adams famously proclaimed that the signing of the Declaration of Independence would be “celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival.” As we commemorate our nation’s 237th Independence Day, not only do Adams’ words ring true, they guide me in my work as a California State Senator to ensure that each new generation learns to celebrate our cherished democracy with a strong foundation of civic knowledge and participation. Sadly, only 48 percent of college students recognize that “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,” is from the Declaration of Independence.
microwave, printer/copier or TV set. Few keep up with evolving computer technology and almost no one understands the importance of the component specifications to performance and reliability. The public doesn’t know what’s important in computer hardware because manufacturers, marketers and retailers don’t want us to. They don’t advertise the hardware factors that really make a difference in the quality, performance and reliability of their products. Their ads sell the sizzle, not the steak. Media advertising focuses on life style and social acceptance not components and quality.
The cool thing about “benchmarking” is that it’s fairly easy to understand and once you can talk “benchmarks” you’ll never fall victim to the hype, hooey, blather and outright balderdash that define the language of retail store clerks and Internet sales pitchmen. Not only will you be snow-proof, you can also use your newfound knowledge to strip away the superficial veneer of technobabble, and expose the appalling lack of technical knowledge among the folks who sell retail computers. If you’ve got a mean streak you might even enjoy making them squirm a bit.
RAM (random access memory), video (integrated or stand alone), power supply, motherboard, case and optical drive. The case is has no critical parts and the optical drive (DVD-R/W) is generic. We don’t need to consider them. To retail salespeople, time is money. They work on commission. The last thing they want is get tied up talking technology with customers. They want you to “buy it and beat it.” They’ll tell you there are three kinds of PC, the i3 (lowest performance and cheapest), i5 (the middle) and the i7 (the most expensive and best). Truth is that the i3, 5 &7 CPUs overlap. There are some i3s higher in performance than some i5s and i7s. They probably don’t know that.
In addition, other components affect performance and reliability too. If you start asking question, their eyes will glaze over and their attention span will go south. That’s OK because there are important things that you need to know before you buy. Some 1.0Terabyte hard drives are 5 times faster than others, some have one-year warranties, some five. Some 1.0GB video cards are 50 times faster than others. Is the Watt rating on the power supply enough? What CPU gives more “bang for the buck” Intel or AMD? They won’t be able to answer your questions but, with a little effort, you can. Next week we’ll get into details but if you’d like a jump-start, go to www.passmark.com.

An Improved but still Inadequate Budget
The Legislature has now passed a budget for the coming Fiscal Year. For the first time in years, the budget relies on more realistic revenue projections that, as a small business owner, I can support. As such, the $96.3 billion budget is an improvement over past budgets that were often based on fantasy revenue projections. On the other hand, the budget fails to hold the line on new spending and locks in future welfare increases. Despite passage of Proposition 30 last year to fund public education, the budget delays repayment of much of the debt owed California’s schools. In addition, legislation that my Republican colleagues and I supported to freeze college tuition and restore Cal Grant funding was blocked by the majority party. The budget also perpetuates the Governor’s prison realignment
scheme which has transferred thousands of dangerous inmates from state to county supervision. Billions in unfunded liabilities are simply ignored in our new “balanced budget,” including $10 billion borrowed from the federal government to fund California’s otherwise insolvent unemployment program, and $50 billion in unfunded liabilities for retiree health care. While this budget is an improvement over the fantasy budgets of the recent past, it does nothing to address the real “fiscal cliff” lurking just down the road. Consequently, I joined my Republican colleagues and voted “no” when the budget bill was presented for final approval on June 14th.

Random Thoughts for the Day
1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die. 2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong. 3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. 4. There is great need for a sarcasm font. 5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet? 6. Was learning cursive really necessary? 7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood. 8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died. 9. Bad decisions make good stories.
