Well, I'm still alive. My computer has been inop for a couple of months and I'm using my laptop with a really craptacular connection.

I wasn't paying enough attention one night and allowed some super nasty malware to take over my computer. I've been gradually getting bits of information saved off the hard drive, a little at a time. Since the malware incident, I haven't been on-line very much, and I've been using my laptop with the little screen that I can barely read and a flaky  wireless card.

Actually, the break from all-night internet use has been pretty restful and I'm even getting a few things done around the house for a change.

Hopefully, the repairs with the computer will be done in the next week or so, and I'll have a usable connection again.

I would love to get a copy of all your pictures on restoring your A.  Beautiful work!  I am getting ready to do one out here in Oregon and need all the help I can get.

Thanks for the interest. I only have a few of the pictures left from that plane, the rest were lost a couple of years ago when my hard drive died. There are only about ten pictures of the nose gear well left. I'll email them to you when I find the CD they're on. Right now I don't have a functioning disc burner until I get a chance to rebuild my desktop computer.

That's a rough way to go, and too young. I'm getting to that point in life when hearing about people in my age group dying hits home hard. RIP

I'd have to agree with everyone so far. it was a very good looking movie with great imagery, but the story was so-so. It was also fairly short. If it had been longer, maybe they could have expanded the story more. Overall, I still liked it and would see it again.

Somehow, I don't see a return to Afghanistan by the Russians to be a very welcomed thing. The west needs to pull out completely and seal the entire Middle East region like an abandoned cesspool so nothing disgusting can leak out ever again.

The flag was at half staff at the Kennedy compound hours before the official announcement. That's probably how the Wiki story came about.

Really? Quite aside from his politics every report I heard about the personality of the man suggested that like all Kennedy menfolk he was a repellent individual.

I think that "repellent" is being way too nice. I could go on and on, but as little as I think of all the Kennedys, ol' drunken Ted disgusted me beyond words. At least Mary Jo Kopechne can rest now.
