Interpreting ping response? (the POD lives??)

Can anyone help me interpret the following output?
I read the ping manpage, but came to the end before
I learned much that helps me here....

Other than "source" and "destination", where can I
find an explanation for the rest of this?  And, if possible,
can you tell me what might be happening?

I've seen responses like it before, but usually only because
I was pinging a blocked port; unfortunately for me, now I
kinda need to know, and I really am not deep enough
into TCP/IP to know where to look for an answer ... :-(
