Lost Hills Golf Car Rental
From Bill Booth

Hi Roger,
I just called All Carts the golf cart folks, to make my reservation for the cart we need for Max Men. The proprietor mentioned that a lot of people have called, but I am the first to actually make reservations. This is a “heads up” that the delivery and pick up fees vary depending on how many carts he is delivering. If one delivery truck fills up and there is one cart left to deliver, that last guy in line will pay a full share to have his cart delivered. So it would be a good idea to get your reservations in soon.

Bloodbath at Lost Hills ?!

From: chris edge

Dame SCAT,

I read in one of our national organs that there is an world-wide almond glut and prices have dropped from $4.70 last summer to $2.60 now. Seems that over-production is that problem and that quote ‘One American nut trader has described the conditions affecting the almond market as a “bloodbath”‘.

On a positive note, in another organ I can report that haggis numbers in the Selkirk hills are good this year and the annual hunt will be well attended.

Of course as a well-read individual I’m sure you’ll be aware of both these nationally important stories.



While I do not want to dispute the findings of one of your national organs I can report that recent examination of the flying site by a well known power flyer who is a retired medical doctor , so should know what blood looks like did not report seeing any baths let alone those filled with blood.

I can report however that the principal of the Ike Contest organization reports a $2 increase in price of the famous Lost Hills Pistachios that are part of the prizes at our event.

With respect to the Haggis, I fear that they are in trouble because Dr Grordborts reports that the intrepid hunters are returning to Earth from Venus where they went after the creatures described in this link .If one can do battle with such creatures surely the Haggis is toast. So make sure your chickens are well and truely in the hen house.
