    B-29 "Doc" Awarded New Airworthiness Certificate

    That was just bad luck, no one was hurt thankfully, but it's a real "bummer" for sure. She would have been nice to have around.

    B-29 "Doc" Awarded New Airworthiness Certificate

    Oh, yeah, aluminum is like magnesium ("willy pete"), if I remember it correctly: - Add oxygen and heat and in a flash they both burn, baby, burn! They're both elements with similar chemistry (+/-).

    B-29 "Doc" Awarded New Airworthiness Certificate

    What?!! That's too bad, really too bad. MAN! But I guess it is important to learn to let go. Ashes-to-ashes, dust-to-dust. All things must pass. Only love endures.

    Railroad Forum

    Spotted yesterday in Rockville MD, at a grade-crossing over there: - a CSX engine Didn't realize the RR Forum went to a vote. Like, what's not-to-like? it's about trains! (Full Disclosure: I was an idiot kid, and used to jump local freights for fun. God works miracles: I'm still living, with...

    B-29 "Doc" Awarded New Airworthiness Certificate

    Just think it over: - If the boys would quit playing power games, and picking fights with one another - Think about all the sick children and starving families that could be made whole with those funds instead But that's never as much "fun" (for the boys, anyway). Maybe that's the problem...

    It's just a joke. But not far off the mark! Yeah, I took French. Had a teacher made us memorize Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, in French. That was a hoot! My mother was a war bride, and grew up in Paris. She tutored two of us in Spanish and two of us in French, for our schooling. She spoke...

    I have joined the club ! And yes I have lost my mine !

    It looks great! I got to tell you that picture of Mama on the porch scares me: - It comes from a lifetime career in construction, and the building codes - You will want to come up with a simple perimeter rope-rail or something Someone could accidentally get REAL hurt, and nobody wants that...

    There's the joke that goes: - If you speak 2 languages you are Bi-Lingual, and - If you speak 3 languages you are Tri-Lingual, and - If you only speak 1 language, you are American! (My ice hockey buddies from Canada always gave me grief for calling myself "American" being as they were North...

    What have you done to your MKT this week???

    You'll be the talk of that crowd forever! "Country Potatoes" sounds mighty good, so please share how you make them, chop some onion in there with them and fry?

    Stops look great. Did you machine those, or get them "off the shelf"?

    We should get some Finns involved here, they can be pretty good with languages! My kids went to school locally with the kids from an ex-pat family here from Finland. The Dad told me everybody in Finalnd learns at least (4) languages for their primary education: - Ancient Finnish -...

    Hmmm..do you like low flying aircraft?....then here ya go!

    I get it. I used to like war films, too, as a kid. But now, films about killing? I don't care for them anymore. I like the MV hardware, though. Go figure.

    Hmmm..do you like low flying aircraft?....then here ya go!

    That looks like authentic WWII-era footage. But the flying is awfully close to reckless (so maybe NOT authorized "official" footage). Wonder what the story is behind the film clip?
