Re: Do NOT play in the flood waters - Harvey

So far in this thread we have "red" firearms, and "read" ones. I have neither :biggrinjester: Mods: remove the useless "Preview" button on the Post a Reply page, as it appears that no one uses it. :mrgreen:

Re: Prayers for those in the path of Harvey

Anyone in Houston know if the Wallisville Rd area of NE Houston has a history or is prone to flooding? I have some concerns. Answer here, or PM me if you have any info. Thanks.

Re: Antifa training manuals

Doubt that was the situation. If the reports are correct, I suspect likely mechanical failure which didn't leave time for a distress call. WP reports the Bell 407 helicopter was at 2300 feet traveling at 34mph and had a "vertical flight path" of 45 degrees as it descended "into the t...

Re: Glen Campbell Passes Away

Had the pleasure of seeing Glen in concert at Bass Hall and later at Billy Bob's in Ft. Worth not too many years ago. Not only an amazing guitar player, but a heck of a bagpiper too. The one thing I liked about the live concerts was that Glen stayed true to the original tunes and did not "modif...

Re: NS Canada: Homeowner charged after armed robbers enter his home

Maybe they should change the name of the country to "Comedia." Then they could be called "Comedians." Closer to reality. First 8-10 million paid to a terrorist, now this :confused5

Re: Ground Speed please

From the world of the really sloooooow... Having spent most of my adult life as a helicopter pilot, there are hundreds of funny radio calls heard over that time. One that sticks out in my memory is when we were flying for Exxon on the Exxon Valdez oil spill and cleanup. Valdez airport was a major pi...

There's actually two kinds of Deagles. The Desert Eagle, and the round ones like a ball, sometimes called a "Ball Deagle." :biggrinjester:

Re: DFW West/Southwest Quadrant Breakfast

I would attend if closer but 2 hrs 1 way for me is a tad far, sure like to see one on the east side somewhere garland, Rockwall or?? Once this first one is established and we're sure it's not going to just die out if we spawn off a second one, I think we'll look at doing one in the northeast. It's ...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

On several occasions recently I've put RUSSIAN dressing on my salad, and had a deli sandwich with the same and I never reported it to anyone! All of my grandparents are from RUSSIA, and I spoke to them on many occasions! Also not reported. One time, while flying in Alaska, I flew to Little Diomede I...

Re: Wife Sick with Cancer.

Prayers for your wife and you. You are the most important component in your wife's recovery as a caregiver. She needs all of the support and encouragement she can get, and from what I read here, you are certainly giving it. Without you, the road is much tougher. I have been battling cancer for 4 yea...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

I suspect the attack against Mica is really intended to provide a maximum impression on Joe Scarborough. I believe Mica and Joe were recently married. Apparently the attack was triggered by Mica's mention of a phony Time Magazine cover that is displayed at several of the president's golf clubs: htt...

I suppose there are a lot of things about the military that wouldn't necessarily make sense to a civilian, but that do make sense in a military context. :mrgreen: Remember TAM the military is the birthplace of: "Close enough for government work." "We've met the enemy, and they are us...

Re: Online Veteran Exchange looking for beta testers

I'm just curious...... how does one end up with four DD214s? :lol: One when I was discharged after being drafted (2 year commitment. 2 months later I re-enlisted- only had 90 days to do so to keep my stripes and so-called "bonus.") One when I graduated Officer Candidate school and was dis...
