Power Outage causes delays

Due to high winds SDGE shut off out power for several days putting us a week behind in shipping.

Julian is currently warm and sunny with light breezes making it an ideal time to visit our retail store, Eccentric Ape, 2000 Main Street, in Julian.

We have many great deals and unique items including original paintings and art in store that you won’t find online.

We live in an absurd reality on this timeline. I offer you an old comedy bit which is an apt primer for our modern comedy of life.

Updates, News, Bonuses

It has been a long while since I have posted here. I was injured in February and it took about 2 months to heal. During that time I learned as much as possible each day. Unfortunately, the more one learns the deceptions become apparent. More on that later, maybe.

Since, the purpose of this news blog is incense information I am not sure if I should expose the vast censorship we are facing everywhere. I would like to offer you some alternatives to the popular yet heavily controlled sites.

These are video sites where you may find content or create your own streams:

https://vid.me

These are some alternative search engines:

http://dogpile.com/

http://www.yippy.com/

http://www.webcrawler.com/

and, these following two search engines provide Google’s censored results without tracking and profiling if you must have Google’s version of the web.

Now, on to incense news-

First, our Eccentric Ape line is currently experiencing shortages and some changes due to the untimely death of the young man who used to make them. Since, this line was a labor of love and dedication to the art of incense making it is all consuming to recreate this line even knowing the methods.  This project, among others has kept us chronically slower than desirable in shipping. We really appreciate the understanding of our loyal customers. We have some of the best people on Earth shopping here and we know it.

Next, Nippon Kodo has a couple of new lines of incense and has changed manufacturing of their popular Morning Star line to Vietnam. Also, they have discontinued the New MorningStar line and discontinued Morning Star Fig, Iris, and Cinnamon, although, Cinnamon will be returning very soon. We do still have Cinnamon in stock at this time, but that can change quickly.

Unfortunately, the newest products are made in Tokyo, and we will not be stocking them due to safety concerns.

Currently, all of the Japanese incense items we carry are made on the south west coast, far from the source, but it is possible that we will eventually cut all Japanese items if we find any evidence  of risk.

This post is getting long so I will get to the specials now.

Rain, possible snow, and cold weather are coming this weekend. If it snows expect long transit times coming up here. Last snowstorm shut down the whole area and traffic was moving at about 2 MPH due to all the people trying to see the snow. All the restaurants ran out of food and all the shelves were emptied. Parking was impossible. If you’re planning to see the snow I would advise starting as early as possible.

We have great stocking stuffers, and unique and unusual gifts for all ages.

Many new stone pendants, pocket watches and more are in store now.

Stop in for the best prices in town.

Julian’s Tree Lighting is Saturday. Rain and snow are in the forecast so dress for cold if you are coming to the area and drive safely.

The back country has become a destination for wine, beer and other alcoholic beverage tasting. Please be aware that alcohol affects one more at altitude and use extra caution. It is easy to underestimate the effects of altitude and the fire and rescue seem to be busier as more tasting rooms open.
Also, cannabis and and caffeine both increase the effects of alcohol.

Please help make our roads safer. Unfamiliar, winding and climbing, narrow roads require an alert driver.
