S2 E15 — Behaving Badly, Why Big Sur made “Fodor’s Travel NO List”

What’s life like living and working on KnowWhere Atoll? I don’t recommend it for everyone.  Think of it as being forced to self-quarantine and stay at home all the time.

What’s life like living and working on KnowWhere Atoll? I don’t recommend it for everyone.  Think of it as being forced to self-quarantine and stay at home all the time.  

And while it has its many advantages we aren’t desperately seeking tourists, especially those blotto Gen-Zs you encourage to party on your Florida beaches. I wouldn’t say we’re anti-tourist, oh wait I guess we are. 

Especially those selfish-ie driven who endlessly scout locations in the real world to only serve as backgrounds for their faces.  

And then flit off to somewhere else leaving their food wrappers, plastic cups and straws littered everywhere in their wake. Like leaving four tons of trash on Maui’s coast in a single July day last summer. 

And why Big Sur made the “Fodor’s Travel NO List” under the category of “places that don’t want you — or want you in smaller and better doses.” 

Or worse, role-playing a modern day version of those European explorers seeking all that glitters in the New World while cluelessly introducing pandemics for decimating the locals. 

Or, as Silk Road merchants introducing the Black Plague during the middle ages 150 years earlier that relentlessly spread throughout Europe and especially in Italy in Venice and Sienna.  

But, hey other than that we’re good. 

If history doesn’t repeat itself, surely it rhymes Mark Twain might have said.  Or was it Samuel Clemons? The lyrics may change but the rhythm remains. 

Sad.

Now here’s a great TauBit of Wisdom, I’d like to share.  Will I take it?  Maybe, I don’t have to steal or swipe it.  Haha.

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: “When you get good advice, you’ll pass it on, but maybe you won’t take it.  You’re holding out for something that resonates on many levels.”Scorpio

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Now this is an example of the Patron Saint preaching to the choir!  Here’s my mantra — anticipate, innovate, iterate and improve.

“5”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): Your ability to project into the future is even better than usual, so use it to avoid getting into a position where the tide will come in over your head.” Aries

Unless it’s a Friday and their names are Jazzy and Shaggy, even though their parent made a great living selling high valued advice.

“4”  Steve Smith, 30: Loved ones will accept your help and act on your advice.” Gemini

Wait, is this all about looking for the missing jigsaw puzzle piece?  Emma the Baroness and I engage in drive by placing what looks like a piece fits in a physical space, but alas, it doesn’t.

“3”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61:Reality is ruled by timing and the availability of resources.  Things that fit together in physical space will fit together in other ways too.” Virgo

Easy for you to say, since you anticipated the direction of innovation and beat everyone else there.

“4”  Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): Social influence has your eye adjusting to new trends.  Fashions change, and you change right along with them.” Pisces
