    [size=12pt]Williams' clear vision: An NFL comeback[/size]

    (03-01) 04:00 PST Grass Valley, Nevada County -- Dreamers and desperados came to these lovely foothills a century and a half ago seeking gold. Ricky Williams comes here seeking the antidote. If you're seeking Ricky Williams, you turn off Route 49, the old gold-mining trail that is now a speedway, wind along a beautiful country road for 6 miles, travel down a bumpy dirt road for a mile and arrive at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Farm, 80 green acres of ommm.

    There is a cluster of cheery, brightly painted, main buildings, and several tiny cabins overlooking a pond, near which is the "Fire alarm gong." The farm sits in a valley and it's all very clean and quiet and peaceful. Hey, it's a yoga farm.

    A sign on a door inside the main building: "Blessed self: No entry, please. Office staff only."

    This is where Ricky Williams spends his non-football days, teaching (without pay) and studying yoga and its many elements, such as meditation, spiritualism and positivism.

    If you need RW to teach you meditation, spiritualism and positivism your problems are beyond repair.

    (03-01) 04:00 PST Grass Valley, Nevada County -- Dreamers , desperados and hop heads came to these lovely foothills a century and a half ago seeking Columbian gold. Ricky Williams comes here seeking the antidote to a life replete with wealth , fame, and broads. If you're seeking Ricky Williams, you turn off Route 49, the old gold planted trail that is now a speedway, wind along a beautiful country road for 6 miles, travel down a bumpy dirt road for a mile and arrive at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Farm, 80 green acres of gold.

    There is a cluster of cheery, psychadelically painted, main buildings, and several tiny shacks overlooking a pond, near which is the "Fire alarm bong." The farm sits in a valley and it's all very clean and quiet and peaceful. Hey Man...... it's a yoga farm. Right on!

    Had to post the edited version.
    How do you raise yogas? Yoga farm?

    Grass Valley? I don't think a yoga farm was what he expected to find.

    Wow Ricky is back in town.
    I will have to keep an eye out for him.
    I used to see him around when he was here before.
