The Tioga Daily News

All the news that fits in the lazarette!

For all you fans of contrast, here is our Our Dichotomy of the day: An Ulf is a very special creature that can can change its size. Just look at how big one is and how small a bunk it fits in!

Not only is an Ulf able to change its shape, it can change the world economy and address global warming. Ulf has big plans for his Icebergy business. in case you were wondering, an hour icebergy is a real iceberg imported from Newfoundland and available for cocktails in the comfort of your own home. An icebergy is thousands of years old and makes a crackling sounds as it cools your favorite beverage. During import, the icebergy is towed through the seas for over 1000 miles, thus reducing sea temperatures. The only issue is the logistic of melting. With current technology , it requires a two ton icebergy to deliver one cocktail size product. We know Ulf will crack this minor setback.

Here on Tioga, we spell Sea life : See life. Last night while we sped down the waves porpoises darted alongside lit by phosphorescence. Today a pod of pilot whales trailed the boat, dancing at the bow. If it lives out here, we see it.
