    Fortunately, mining it will likely be against the law.

    Watching A Bridge Too Far

    The camouflage paint on the upper surfaces was more for when they were flying than when parked on the ground. They wanted something that would be pattern disruptive over a range of terrain. Aircraft on the ground are subject to bombs, so the camouflage doesn't make much difference. Or, if attacked by strafing, the attackers will be close enough to see them no matter what.

    Weather change.

    Been in the mid-40s at night here. Still in the 70s or 80s during the day. Last week saw 3 deer two evenings here in the trailer park. Monday Lisa sent me a text just after 1p.m. that a buck had trotted down the sidewalk.

    If you have to ask ... Whatever it is, it's cheaper than a new engine.

    MAN-BUNS! Time to shame them out of existence...

    I have what was billed as a "FAG Bag" for Fast Access Gun Bag. Sorta like this one: I hate having stuff in my pockets, other than a pocket knife or two, so I used it as my purse. Wallet, keys, phone, etc. Guys at the gun shop where my wife worked got irked when I called it a purse. But men carrying a purse has a long and honorable history. "Bursar" comes from the Latin word for "purse" as that official had the "purse" of the organization. Same for "purser" on ships. We have the word "cutpurse" from thieves who would slice the bottom of a man's purse in order to get the contents out.

    Well done, young lady, very well done.
  13. Every politician, every celeb, who advocates for "gun control" needs to lead by example and not have any security, armed or not. After all, they have cell phones and can call 911, right?

"THE Conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution" (Preamble to the Bill of Rights) "The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections." : Robert H. Jackson, US Supreme Court Justice West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette, 319 U.S. 624 (1943)

    Flying has changed in the last few years

    I think the last time I was on any aircraft was in ... '92? '93? A while ago. SAN to SFO. Late departing Lindberg - indicator light on the port fuel port said it was open. It wasn't. Sat there for about an hour and a half while things got checked and fixed. They passed out snacks, beverages, playing cards, coloring books for the kids. Coming into SFO was listening to the ATC and our pilot. ATC said something like "United 123, cleared for runway 23 Left," pilot responded "Cleared for runway 23 Right, United 123."
