TSgtRet's Achievements


Newbie (1/14)



  1. Also note the FE has throttle and prop controls too!
  2. Sheesh, I'm a fighter too. (Of course I was on Phantoms more than half my career) but I at least figured I get "bomber".
  3. Dan lives closer to Great Lakes; I'm a toss up between the 2 but it wouldn't pay unless you were buying 6 months worth of groceries. Dan, From looking at your pictures, I would put straw bales around the bottom of the trailer to help your heat tape...particularly on the NW corner. Before we put our double wide on a basement we had frozen pipes in the winter regularly and learned all of the insulating tricks.
  4. I guy named Bob retired from his first job in his early 50s; after a short time he realized he needed something else to do or he would go nuts. He took a job at a small production company and excelled at everything he was assigned and took the initiative to to improve/streamline things. He only had one fault....he was 5-15 minutes late every morning. Finally his boss called him in....."Bob, we're very pleased with your performance, in fact you've exceeded all expectations except one. You're late every morning. Now I see here that you retired from the Air Force; I can't believe an outfit like that would tolerate something like this. Did this happen there too?" "Yes" "Well what did they say to you when you came in late?" "'Good Morning General'"
  5. Tiny, I've wondered about that name too but the game is huge up in this area of Indiana. They sell the sets at flea markets, etc and you see ads for "Cornhole Scoreboards" (the picture that brings to mind). Apparently the name has a different meaning to us!
  6. Shades of "What The Captain Means"! I love it
  7. No guessing about it; as an old QA weenie I'll confirm that! Being thought of as "the Bad Guys" all the time will do that (guess the black hats didn't help).
  8. TSgtRet


    In the same general vein; society , in general. has become so dependent on GPS, Garmin, Map Quest, OnStar, etc that when you give them directions like "go North on I 69, then go East on I 80" you will almost always get: "which way is North?"....... So you bite your tongue and say, very slowly and distinctly: "Follow the sign that says 'Lansing' then follow the one that says 'Toledo'" GRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!
  9. As a Nav-Aids weenie I got to see a variety of airframes during my career. Besides the Herks at Pope (and TDY HCs at Kef) here is what and where: KC and EC-135s Grissom KCs Fairford and Castle B-52G and H Castle C-131/T-29, O-2 Pope F-4C, F-4E & T-33 Keflavik HH-3s (TDY) Keflavik RF-4C Bergstrom and Zweibrucken T-39 Bergstrom
  10. When I was stationed at Keflavik in 1977 we had brand new Greek F-4s and Israeli A-4s ferry through, all wearing U.S. markings. At least the F-4s looked more or less like the SEA camo but the A-4s with the desert camo and non-subdued U.S. markings were a bit obvious.
  11. Welcome back, Dan and Welcome to Indiana! We're on wireless DSL where we live; the local (small) phone company puts an antenna on your house that is aimed at a reciever that is tied into the DSL (ours is aimed at an antenna on a feed mill); no problems or complaints so far, have had it almost a year. BTW if you brought your lawn tractor with you, you'll need to check out a new attachment......s-n-o-w-p-l-o-w.
  12. I think that must have been it; the picture (though framed) looked like a newspaper clipping with the "Speed Record" caption added.
  13. I have some Muslim friends (U.S. citizens) and they don't want to claim him either! I will admit that I agree with some of the things he says but wish they were voiced by someone with credibility; anything he says sounds like it needs to accompanied by a 60s sitcom laugh track.:confused:
  14. I have forwarded ths to all of my conservative friends and one liberal friend (with a sense of humor). Thanks Tiny!
  15. She sounds like a "promote ahead of peers" to me, resourceful, thinking on her feet.
