Welcome to The Cuckoos Egg, the personal (but seldom visited) region of Game Administrator SalusaSecondus.

The region is under the anti-marsupial stewardship of TAO and the New TAO Order and its pursuit of the Art of Nothingness.

We occasionally engage in efficacious conversation but this is not one of those scheduled weeks.

Requests for embassy exchanges from embassy collectors will typically be denied ... unless your region is unique or you have sent a particularly compelling representative to woo us.

WA Delegates may be given additional authority upon request. If you become elected as our WA Delegate and would like access to the regional admin page, please telegram SalusaSecondus and request it.

Embassies: Space Sector RPRA, the Rejected Realms, Wysteria, The Skeleton Army, the West Pacific, The Moon, Testregionia, Titan, Global Federation, The Peaceful Coffee Shop In Chicago, International Debating Area, and Schleift Bjorn.

Day 16 ... to trébuchet or not to trébuchet ... that is the question.

*Opens the rum cellar*
*Opens new establishment named 'The Rum Cellar'*
*Opens the dance floor to karaoke*

Blue Bayou -- Roy Orbison

I feel so bad I've got a worried mind
I'm so lonesome all the time
Since I left my baby behind on Blue Bayou

Saving nickels, saving dimes
Working 'till the sun don't shine
Looking forward to happier times
On Blue Bayou
I'm going back some day
Come what may to Blue Bayou
Where you sleep all day
And the catfish play on Blue Bayou

All those fishing boats
With their sails afloat
If I could only see
That familiar sunrise
Through sleepy eyes
How happy I'd be

Go to see my baby again
And to be with some of my friends
Maybe I'd be happy then on Blue Bayou

I'm going back some day
Gonna stay on Blue Bayou
Where the folks are fine
And the world is mine
On Blue Bayou
Oh, that girl of mine by my side
The silver moon and the evening tide
Oh, some sweet day gonna take away
This hurtin' inside
I'll never be blue
My dreams come true on Blue Bayou

Crossroads -- Don McLean

I've got nothing on my mind,
Nothing to remember,
Nothing to forget.
And I've got nothing to regret.
But I'm all tied up on the inside,
No one knows quite what I've got,
And I know that on the outside
What I used to be
I'm not

You know I've heard about people like me
But I never made the connection.
They walk one road to set them free
And find they've gone the wrong direction.
But there's no need for turning back
Cause all roads lead to where I stand;
And I believe I'll walk them all
No matter what I may have planned.

Can you remember who I was?
Can you still feel it?
Can you find my pain?
Can you heal it?

Then lay your hands upon me now
And cast this darkness from my soul.
You alone can light my way.
You alone can make me whole
Once again.

We've walked both sides of every street
Through all kinds of windy weather;
But that was never our defeat
As long as we could walk together.
So there's no need for turning back
Cause all roads lead to where we stand;
And I believe we'll walk them all
No matter what we may have planned.

Results of the recent poll -- “Should our radio station KARL be rechartered, reequipped, and renamed with the call letters KEGG?” -- have been tallied and decisions made.
Our current radio operation, KARL, is equipped to transmit only in the Salusa Towers area. Unfortunately, the transmission tower for KARL is atop the invisible 2nd Salusa Tower and we still can't find the invisible key. A new transmission tower and new equipment will allow the signal to reach the entire region.

[1] -- YES ... recharter, reequip, rename. But please keep Karl as program director (since he still owes me money).
[1] -- MAYBE ... just rename the statio but keep everything else the same; I rather enjoy the scratchy, popping sounds of a 78 record.
[0] -- NO ... I never listen to the radio anyway since I am not from this region and besides ... my opinion doesn't actually matter.
[2] -- UNDECIDED ... I like the idea of a better station with a new name ... but WHERE'S THE RUM?!?!

In accordance with the votes ... Radio Station KEGG will begin transmitting after the new tower is built on Rum Hidden Here Hill. The new tower will allow Karl to continue playing his 78s in addition to any other musical medium for the entire region and not just those living on the streets around the Salusa Towers.

Feel free to Karaoke and empty the rum kegs while we build the new tower until You-Know-Who returns and expects us all to actually work or something.

Hahahaha ... The Nicest Citizens in The Cuckoos Egg: 20 (out of 20). The Game Administrator's Realm of SalusaSecondus

And that on Day 20. *rolls out more rum kegs for the region* *rolls out several pickle barrels for the region*

The Party continues.

*38 minutes ago: The Crowned Republic of Waldora of the region Ebenezer proposed constructing embassies.*

The region is barely 4 months old and has collected over 100 embassies. There has been no representative from the region come here to woo us. With a region name like 'Ebenezer', someone from there should have brought us a goose or something as a bribe. But noooooo.

AGAINST embassy exchange.

25 and counting.

*13 hours ago: Boonana ceased to exist. *

Boonana Banana Bonanza Dill Spears go on sale later next week. A little out of the ordinary, perhaps, but there is a good chance that embassy regions won't notice.

*15 hours ago: Regional Founder Salusasecondus ceased to exist. *

Well ... if that doesn't place all of us in pickle!

Founders Keepers Salusa Salsa Relish goes on sale next week. Order ASAP so the whole production doesn't go to a private buyer.

Again?! I'll take some of the salsa.
