Sunrise Sunset 2010 News

Sunrise Sunset 2010 News

David Tuttlebee (who has a beach hut, and regularly windsurfs, at Hayling Island) had a tumour removed from his Bowel in May 2006, whilst undergoing an emergency operation for Appendicitis.

He needed a second operation a week later to seal his bowel and then had 10 days in intensive care units.

Colon cancer was confirmed and chemotherapy was undertaken for the following 9 months. He was not allowed to get the "groshong line" (surgically fitted to his artery vein in his chest) wet and also could not undergo physical movements in case it was dislodged.

David was a keen windsurfer but also played a lot of tennis and skis. He had 12 months "out of sporting action" due to the treatments/recovery of health/muscle strength.

He travelled every weekend to Hayling to watch his colleagues windsurfing (despite not always feeling/looking that well) and often rigged sails on the shingle.

Part of his "therapy" was to buy/sell kit at the Hayling windsurfing monthly jumble as he wanted to set himself up with updated boards and sails in wave, speed/slalom, freeride and formula categories ready for his return to the water.

He had been a participant at the annual "Weymouth Speed Week" and, even though between his fortnightly (administered over 3 days) chemotherapy treatment, he helped in the registration/administration office in the October of 2006.

He remained positive throughout and received a lot of support/encouragement from his friends and family but they all new that deep down he was often not feeling as well as "portrayed".

To ski before the end of the 2006/7 season was his first priority once the treatment finished with back on the water and tennis court the first week of May 2007 being the second/third aim.

All three were achieved and his strength and abilities improved during the summer months. He helped again in the registration office at Weymouth speed week 2007 and was once again a participant.

He went skiing three times in the 2007/8 winter season and also windsurfed and played tennis throughout the winter, giving him a great boost into spring and summer of 2008. Effectively he looked and felt strong and had enjoyed being back to his sporting interests over the 18 months (after the "year out") leading up to speed week on the 3rd October 2008.

He had attended regular meetings with his surgeon when his blood tests were fine. He had clear scans in March and July 2007 and an ultra sound on his kidneys and bowel in February 2008 was clear.

A further scan was scheduled for mid September 2008 but feeling and looking strong David just thought it to be routine.

David was a reader of the Cancer Research UK quarterly bulletin and read of other sufferers doing sponsored "runs, walks, climbs or rides" but he did not wish to train for something out of his normal body strength.

In early September 2008 he thought that with his "three year anniversary" (of being told he had colon cancer) coming up next May that he should attempt something personally to raise money for Cancer Research.

He decided to windsurf at Hayling from "sunrise to sunset" and get colleagues to join him for part of the day. He would get himself sponsored by colleague windsurfers, friends and family as his personal thank you for cancer research.

By linking a day to next years "National Windsurfing Week" he would also have a local focus for donations etc.

He outlined his initial thoughts to fellow windsurfers at Hayling without knowing that the scan undertaken a few days early had shocking results.

A week after the scan, and "out of the blue", he had a phone call from the Hospital Colon Team to visit them the following day. At the visit, and to his surprise, he was told that the scan showed significant changes from July 2007 and that his file is now going to a "Lung team". He then attended two hospital clinics for biopsies to be taken from a mass in his lung and the neck thyroid.

The tests were to be analysed microscopically over 5 days and an Oncology meeting was set for Monday 6th October (part of Weymouth Speed Week 2008).

Even with a sore throat/neck from the biopsies David still travelled to Weymouth to both windsurf the speed course and help again in the office from the Saturday start day.

He travelled back to his hospital for the Monday meeting and was told the distressing news that Colon Cancer had returned to his neck and two parts of his lung.

He was to have a new PET scan, undertake six fortnightly sessions of Chemotherapy, a further scan and a review as to further chemo, an operation or radiotherapy if the nodes could be surgically cut out.

David returned to Weymouth that evening to share with the organising team and fellow windsurfers that the fears were confirmed. The shock news was received with empathy.

He also talked about the prognosis to Dave White (not only a top windsurfer but has also be

TS Royalist

TS Royalist

TS Royalist is a brig owned and operated as a sail training ship by the Marine Society & Sea Cadets (MSSC) of the United Kingdom.


Royalist is 83 GRT and her hull is 23.32 metres (76 ft 6 in) long, with an overall length of 29.52 metres (96 ft 10 in). As well as her sails, she is equipped with two Perkins diesel engines of 110 kilowatts (150 hp) each.[1] The engines drive twin screw propellers.[2]

Royalist was built by Groves and Guttridge, Cowes, Isle of Wight. She was designed by Colin Mudie RDI and launched on 3 August 1971 by Princess Anne.[3] In 1992, Royalist was taken out of the water for a refit, termed as a "Mid-Life Upgrade". Various facilities were improved, and she got a new coat of paint. Royalist was re-launched by Princess Anne, (now the Princess Royal). She is built of steel, with an overall length of 29 metres (97 feet) (not including the bowsprit, which adds about 8 metres onto her overall length), and has a traditional square-rigged brig layout.

Almost every week of the year, 24 Sea Cadets, Combined Cadet Force (Navy) and a single week of Air cadets from all over the UK join the ship and spend the whole week on board working as part of the team. Many different parts of the UK are visited, sailing from her home berth in Gosport to Southampton, Poole and the Isle of Wight.

Every week, there are two berths made available to Adults (18+) as Watch Officers.

There are 6 permanent members of crew who instruct the embarked cadets on a weekly basis, and also carry out the maintenance/winter refit. These are the Captain, the Sailing Master, the Engineer, the Boatswain (Bosun), the Coxswain and the Cook.

On 20 May 1996, Royalist ran aground in the River Severn some 3 nautical miles (5.6 km) north of the Severn Bridge near Oldbury Power Station. Twenty cadets were taken off by helicopter and lifeboat.[4]

On 5 April 2009. Royalist ran aground in Chapman's Pool, Dorset (50°35?17?N 2°04?46?W). The Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) investigated the incident and found that the Master of Royalist had taken on too many tasks at once.[1]

On the evening of 2 May 2010 a 14 year old male Sea Cadet was killed, following a fall from the rigging whilst furling sails when the ship was anchored in Stokes bay, in the Solent. He was named the next day as Jonathan Martin.[5][6] The MAIB opened an investigation into the accident. The report into the accident was published on 3 March 2011. It concluded that the cadet fell because he had unclipped his safety harness when trying to manoeuvre past a crewmember in order to go to the assistance of another crewmember. This was contrary to standing instructions and his training. The supervision of cadets aloft was criticized. Two recommendations were made.[2]
The TS Royalist during the Trafalgar 200 international fleet review

Trips abroad are also taken regularly, such as to the Channel Islands and to France, Belgium and in some cases, the Netherlands and Germany. Also, during the Tall Ships race period, Royalist can visit other countries of Europe.

For around four or five weeks of the year, for The Tall Ships' Races, Royalist becomes a racing ship. During this period, only cadets who are over 16 years of age are allowed to crew her. This period usually involves a crew taking her to the start of the race (1 week duration). Then, the race crew come onboard, and race Royalist against other Class A ships in the race, which are from all over the world (2 week duration). When the race finishes, yet another crew come aboard, and bring her back home (2 week duration).

Cadets can gain various qualifications when they complete a week on board TS Royalist, which are Offshore Hand 1, Offshore Hand 2, Offshore Seaman, and Offshore Watchleader. The only way to gain any further qualifications, is by getting day skippers, onboard TS Vigilant or the sister TS City Liveryman.

Tag Heuer 2000 Automatic Chronograph

Tag Heuer 2000 Automatic Chronograph

The movement, is a particularly interesting and unique one. It is officially called a LWO 283 movement which consists of a Lemania made Chronograph module piggybacked on top of a ETA 2892-2 movement. This one is the 40 jewel movements. The date window is also kinda unique in that it has a "Cyclops" magnifier, but rather than stick it on the crystal like Rolex does, Heuer put in in the dial between the date wheel and the space between the dial and hands... Pretty cool, although it actually hinders viewing in low light conditions. These early models are rather rare today. You can't find much about them on the web. Heuer used these for a few years before Tag took over.

through the wires, waiting at the out house

burning man decompression party 2011 dogpatch, san francisco

in our society, we've been presented with a lot of information. some of it is relevant and dictates our behavior and plans, even creating us through our submission to the intellectual workings of knowledge and convenience.

but sometimes, through no fault of anything or anyone, things go awry. for instance, if i were to ask you what the aphoristic pin point in the play 'oedipus rex' was you might be societally inclined to say that the whole "killing your dad and having sex-matrimony with your mother" is probably the moral crux of the play.

and we can thank herr freud for that ponderous interpretation of one man's narrative tragedy.

but wouldn't we be missing the real point? wouldn't all that skanky, dirty-ass, nasty mind-porn imagery hurt people who thought about the play as being based on this "syndrome"?

we know that jim morrison based some lyrics in one of his songs on this play. i couldn't help noticing during my college and grad school work years how many people seemed very enmeshed with this interpretation. kind of like how so many people believe in the theory of evolution even though it is the most ridiculous piece of intelligent reasoning since creationism. now we can add the dribble that the "big bang = chaos" theory has brought with its arrival...

but i think the aphoristic meaning in this story is different than that. i find it hard, especially when considering greek theater, to imagine that the central aphoristic meaning would be invested only in the latter part of the play. it shows up earlier and then plays out its refrains. it is found in the foundation of the play.

and shakespeare does a big nod up to it in "his" play "a winter's tale", which follows a different outcome to mr. rex's blind end.

anyway, the point, then, is something that takes place in the beginning. from this perspective, the crux comes with the prophecy that the son will kill the father. the son will take away the father-king's power and place and all his belongings, which include his wife.

when the king hears this, he decides that he will kill the child. but he leaves this step to his faithful and trusted advisor, who of course botches the act because he doesn't want to dirty his own hands -- let the wild earth kill the child!!!

so here is the lesson. this is the aphorisitc crux of the story:

if you're going to try to outwit the prophets and destiny, DO YOUR OWN DIRTY WORK. don't leave it to someone else. be braver. be bolder. don't be the person who wields the knife and then finds out the meaning of blood shy. and don't be like the biblical archetype abraham who also attempts to slay his own son and then backs out at the last second, makes up a fantastical god-intervention story (can we say deus ex machina ?), and races off to found an intelligence dynasty based on his cowardice and need to band together. instead, be a trigger-puller in your life not a finger-pointer.

it's more fun to take pride in your actions than to have regrets about your past. please note that i'm not sure child "sacrifice" is an appropriate past time and it's odd that both of these stories include it, so it must've been something a bit trendier than it is here in our culture...

but let's get central again. this is about "stepping up to the plate." it's about "puttin' some man into your step." it's about the ancient and separatist ideas regarding gender, function and place.
this is about allowing a lifetime of a young man's life take place in another country before he returns to cut you down at the cross roads. this is about turning the knife on the prophet. but it you can't do that, than you better get ready to kill your child, the fountain of your mortality.

seriously, we all KNOW that if that king/father had killed his son outright at a public execution/sacrifice, the prophets would have become much more powerful. fearing the power of the prophets so much that he wants to evade their prophecy in private, the king shies out. he commissions another man to kill his son. bad choice!! but the prophets get the last laugh even then. who cares, that was a long time ago.

now, i think the aphorism begs the question of each of us in the post "inner-child" era, being both king and child, we all know this, how are we killing ourselves by making choices to avoid being killed by our inner child?

everyone i see on the streets and everyone i know personally, well, they have EVERYTHING. many of them are struggling with the idea of downgrading or upgrading the "value on their" EVERYTHING, but they still will have EVERYTHING and more.

why are we so obsessed with having EVERYTHING better? it's sheer tyranny to want more when you already have enough. it's physical punishment to eat food when you are not hungry. it's mentally hazardous to look at mon

Muscle Men of Mysore - KUSTI

Muscle Men of Mysore - KUSTI

Pahelwan Satish and Chandrashekar wait for their turn as they watch their friends wrestle.

It’s a holy practice to worship Lord Hanuman before wrestling. Two wrestlers now meet at the centre of the pit. They shake hands and begin to prepare their stance against each other. Arms tackle each other, bodies rub against each other. Each person attempts to make the opponent lose his balance and hurl him down on the pit. The sweat and oil on the bodies makes it difficult. The wrestlers throw a handful of mud on the opponents back to aid him to have a tighter grip. Heavy breathing and grunts like that of an angry lion echoes in the room. The wrestlers take a break and the next pair of wrestlers step into the pit. The regime ends with some aerobic exercises and the lifting of stone weights. They practice like this twice a day, early mornings and evenings. The passive part of the regime is sleep. Sleep is an integral part of their regime and it’s never compromised. The sport is so rigorous and strenious that they need to rest for over ten hours every day.

Muscle Men of Mysore - now wrestling to survive

Mystical Gods employed dhanurveda (archery) to vanquish the evil. Several years later we see bows and arrows as an exotic art. A sport with machismo. Kalarippayattu , Malla yuddha or Kushti (wrestling combat), vajra mushti (lightning fist) and many more were passed down several generations. Very few still view it as an honorable sport from the ancient times, from Ramayana and Mahabharata.

Long ago in Mysore, when the trendy gyms never existed, the royal kings were the key patrons of this form of sport. Wrestling or kusthi was thoroughly enjoyed by the people and the pahelwans were even recruited in the army.

Most of these garadis have common aesthetic charm in the way it was built. A shady pipal tree, a small portico for practice and a well are the signature features of any akhada or garadi. Earth, Air, water and trees form the soul of the garadi. The walls of the garadi are decorated with the bold, colorful paintings of Lord Hanuman, Garuda and other dramatic scenes from Hindu mythology. The garadi is essentially a shrine dedicated to Lord Hanuman or Anjaneya. He is looked upon the as the God of Courage and Physical Strength.

Mysore was once a city that housed over 100 garadis, but there are only about 40 remaining now in which a handful are actively involved in wrestling, Most of these crumble down to give way to modern gyms.

I was overwhelmed by their sheer dedication and meticulous practice they put in to save the dying sport. Each one of them had a different profession ranging from being a timber merchant, banana vendor, book binder etc. Wrestling matches have become rare events these days. There are no calendars marked with match dates but even then these muscle men devote time and patience towards the sport. However, due to the lack of patrons, their dedication is not being recognized.

All that these wrestlers ask for are regular bouts every month in order to sow the seeds of interest in the people towards the sport. They have invested their time and energy to save the sport from being driven into oblivion. It is about time that people like us give them their due credit before yet another tradition vanishes in thin air.

This is my attempt in reviving the original sport of India, Kushti.

The Nineteenth Spirit is Sallosi (or Saleosi). She is a Great and Mighty Duchess, and appears in the form of a gallant and most beautiful Athenian Woman of an Amazon, whose body is lithe and gymnastic, whom will be dressed as an ancient Greek Hoplite of a soldier. She will sometimes be seen within ones Visions to be riding upon a Crocodile, which will be the arousal of her Evoked sexual energy caressing ones Reptilian-Brain-Stem. Upon her head she will be wearing a Ducal crown of a crested Hoplite helmet. She is very peacable and most wise in the Chess-Game of Love whose battles she always wins for her Master for she causes the Love of Women to be attracted to Men, and of Men to Women, wherefore she attracts those Women, which her Master desires to become as his alone of Lovers while she to eradicate his competitors from off the Chessboard. She will only do as her Master bids when she is sexually taken within those Erotic Lucid Dreams of Ancient Greece she will instigate via which she will inform her Master in depth about the Arts of Love, Chess and Poetry. She governs over Thirty Legions of Female Hoplites like unto her self.


The Succubus Sallosi is somewhat akin to 'Caissa' who is a mythical Goddess featured in a poem called Caissa written in 1763 by English poet and philologist Sir William Jones. She is portrayed as an ancient Greek Thracian Dryad.
Jones' work was inspired by the poem Scacchia ludus ("The game of Chess"), written by Italian poet Marco Girolamo Vida in 1510.

Because of her historical connection to the game of Chess, Caissa is traditionally considered the patron Goddess of Chess players. For Chess players, Caissa is often invoked as a source of inspiration or luck, e.g. "Caissa was with me in that game." She is sometimes referred to as a "Chess Muse" for her imagined ability to inspire Chess players to play well.

Caissa is also spelled Caissa. Caissa is pronounced "ky-EE-suh" or "ky-suh."

Caissa the Goddess of Chess Chess is tantalizing. The game itself; the people drawn to it; the symbolism it evokes; the metaphors, which it inspires.

On one level the Chessboard is the battlefield of life upon which two opposing combatants compete: White against Black; Good against Evil; Positive against Negative, Day against Night, Sun against Moon; Man against Woman. It is also a dynamic interaction between two minds, which converge and fuse into creating dynamic moves, like that of dancers or likened more so to lovers, a thing of beauty, sensual in its nuances and graphic in its uncompromising starkness.

Chess is usually seen to be analogous to War. Yet, the elements of Chess, the interaction between two individuals or two minds: the give and take, the parry and thrust, the intensity and passion, of affinity to boxing and sword fighting has more associative links to that of Sexual Lovemaking. However, Chess and that of its relationship to Love, Romance or Sex, involves the inter-relationship between the two genders (depending of course on ones Sexual orientatation); yet Chess is often thought of as a primarily male-oriented game, while it's inclusion of female players to have once sparked off a rapid reaction from tunnel vision males.

Until the end of the 19th century Women, for the most part, were expected to limit themselves to the artistic or domestic sides of Chess playing, leaving the competitive side to the men. This attitude gave rise to the literary fantasy of powerful Women players, a fantasy, which evolved into the preoccupation with the Sexual and physical attributes of a female Chess player.

This Sexual fantasy first occurred in the early days of Chess (Shatranj) and was expressed in the famous compilation of stories, 1001 Arabian Nights. The story tells of Tawaddud, the Slave-Girl whom excels in many areas including Chess:

when the damsel was playing chess with the expert in presence of the Commander of the Faithful, Harun al-Rashid, whatever move he made was speedily countered by her, till she beat him and he found himself checkmated.

“O professor, I will make a wager with thee on this third game.

I will give thee the queen and the right-hand castle and the left-hand knight; if thou beat me, take my clothes, and if I beat thee, I will take thy clothes.” Replied he, “I agree to this;” and they replaced the pieces, she removing queen, castle and knight. Then said she, “Move, O master.” So he moved, saying to himself, “I cannot but beat her, with such odds,” and planned a combination; but, behold, she moved on, little by little, till she made one of her pawns a queen and pushing up to him pawns and other pieces, to take off his attention, set one in his way and tempted him to take it. Accordingly, he took it and she said to him, “The measure is meted and the loads equally balanced. Eat till thou are over-full; naught shall be thy ruin, O son of Adam, save thy greed.
