    "Semper Fi"

    That's a Devil Dog of a paint job.
  2. Thanks for the look Alan, great shots. I do like that Stinson Voyager and Aeronca Champ and of course that nice looking Harvard.
  3. Sorry, I put into Bold the wrong word. Next word; Royal Dictatorship (Not the UK of course)
  4. The TSA refers to them as cattle fences
  5. No joke, one time I got admonished for bypassing five empty lanes by the person at the counter. She would not help me unless I did so I walked out of the place. Government workers are weird.
  6. I have seen all your movies and you are charged with assault on the senses.
  7. This happened at an assisted living center. The people who lived there had small apartments, but they all ate at a central cafeteria. One morning one of the residents didn't show up for breakfast so my wife went upstairs and knocked on his door to see if everything was OK. She could hear him through the door and he said that he was running late and would be down shortly, so she went back to the dining area. An hour later he still hadn't arrived, so she went back up towards his room, but found him on the stairs. He was coming down the stairs but was having a hard time. He had a death grip on the hand rail and seemed to have trouble getting his legs to work right. She told him she was going to call an ambulance, but he told her no, he wasn't in any pain and just wanted to have his breakfast. So, she helped him the rest of the way down the stairs and he had his breakfast. When he tried to return to his room, he was completely unable to get up even the first stair step, so they called an ambulance for him. A couple of hours later she called the hospital to see how he was doing. The receptionist there said he was fine, he just had both of his legs in one side of his boxer shorts. I'm sending this to my children so that they don't sell the house before they know all the facts.
  8. It's probably the longer way to go but I have always used my Snipping Tool. I fly in windows mode so by using this I can clip the image to size and save as a jpeg which I save to my desktop. From there it is easy to copy them to an image site. I think I started doing this way so I didn't have to change the V key capture which is a .bmp to a jpg before saving to an image site I think that has changed over time though. In Win 7 it is found in your Accessories folder and I then put in in my taskbar tray for easy access. In the options section of the snipping tool you can also make it save to your clipboard too .
  9. I agree, too much gobbledygook to see the important stuff.
  10. "The bad news is those dang peaceniks stuck again", said Colonel Buzztop, "but the good news is they brought us beer"
  11. Enjoyable PIREP Andrew, also a great example of timing between waypoints.
  12. Nicely flown Joe, sure is nice to see green instead of white. I still remember my first test flight. I was so nervous and piloted an older bird I wasn't familiar with, turned in to early so I couldn't get steady on the radial and had to take a deep breath circle around and start all over again. Second time was the charm of course and I promised myself I would only fly something I was used to. Have fun everyone.
  13. Brains of older people are slow because they know so much. People do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts because they have more information in their brains, scientists believe. Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive gets full, so too, do humans take longer to access information when their brains are full. Researchers say this slowing down process is not the same as cognitive decline. The human brain works slower in old age, said Dr. Michael Ramscar, but only because we have stored more information over time. The brains of older people do not get weak. On the contrary, they simply know more. Also, older people often go to another room to get something and when they get there, they stand there wondering what they came for. It is NOT a memory problem, it is nature’s way of making older people do more exercise. SO THERE. Now when I reach for a word or a name, I won’t excuse myself by saying, “I’m having a senior moment”. Now, I’ll say, “My disk is full”! I have more friends I should send this to, but right now I can’t remember their names so I will post it here on the forum.
