Happy Birthday, CH! Not very original, but heartfelt.

jim_nj, You seem to post a lot over night, especically on military stuff. I like military stuff. I scroll thru your posts every morning, picking the things I find interesting for further reading while a down the first few cups of java. Because of that, I'm gonna give you an update on the F-35b. I have a BIL who is on the Rolls Royce F-35b lift program. I got a chance to pick his brain on the aircraft this past weekend while he was in town for a funeral. He did a ten week stint as a civilian contractor on USS Wasp earlier this year during testing, in case issues arose In those ten weeks he got called in one time. For an oil change. He says he's worked other programs but he says the F-35b is hands down the greatest aircraft he's ever worked around from a mechanical standpoint. Wasn't that way 5 years ago but it's now the perfect mechanical platform. He was there when DJT was and said it was electric. It was also the first time he'd been quartered on a naval vessel in 15 years(?) and that he forgot how shitty it was being on a naval vessel.

"Speaking of cancer, just got back from a funeral." About 7 weeks ago my MIL was diagnosed with 'multiple myloma'. About 4 weeks ago, they discovered she had stage 4 pancreatic cancer. She was buried on Saturday... She was a great woman. The idealized version of a 'farm mom' who raised a family, kept a spotless home and helped run the farm. My FIL passed away just after Thanksgiving last year. My Significant Other has had a rough year. I just wish I could do something more to comfort her.

DrJ, I'm Catholic, from Indiana and have a very Irish surname. As a kid, we watched every ND game due to my Dan's allegiance. We were allowed to root against ND only when they played Army as my Dad was a lifer. I didn't know I.U. even played football till about the age of 11 when a neighbor kid wasn't available for a wiffle ball game because his dad was taking him to an I.U. game. Hoosiers are my team these days but, The Irish remain close to my heart.

MissM, that win was epic. Two weeks in a row were the Hoosiers won on the road where they could have folded. Well, by Hoosier football standards it's epic anyway. Watched it with a bunch of fellow Hoosier fans and it was pretty enjoyable. The ND game has taken a bit of my joy away though.

I.U. wins a squeaker at Maryland. 5-2 now with Nebraska and Northwestern on the plate next. They could win both of them. 5-2 is rare territory for my guys, though a bad year for TomR!

I voted for John Anderson in my first eligible election vote. I voted for a local dem prosecutor in about '84 'cause of a local issue. My only split ticket. Was really proud when I voted for Buchanan. Was prouder when I voted for DJT. Took one of my kids so she could watch the majesty of our governmental system.

I'll tell you Matt, I rolled up on a Roush up in Ft Wayne last weekend at a stop light. On the right side of my car, I put the windows down on that side of the car. The Better Half and one of the kids said 'Why you putting the windows down?' I said 'Just be quiet till the light turns green.' The growl was awesome.

I grew up in a small town in Southern Indiana. There was literally a 'car culture' that kids engaged in. It was all about cruising town and the cooler your car, the more cred you had. I had a 1977 Olds 442. Candy Apple Red with white stripes. Keystone Raider wheels with BF Goodrich T/A Radials. The back tires were LR50's, at the time the widest production radial tires in the world. I had a Craig Road Rated Receiver stereo with matched speakers. Oh yeah... I had a CB radio too. I worked my azz off at grocery store bagging grocery's and taking them to the customers car to afford it. I remember running home at lunch during high school and spraying down the wheels with Windex and wiping them down so they would shine more as I cruised around the school at the end of lunch break. My kids, they're into xbox controllers and netflix. 'car culture', I don't see it these days. I just dont get it...

TK, due to a series of unfortunate events, the French Drain occurs next spring. Management agrees it's an issue and she gave me the green light to proceed when I get MY bonus next February/March. I came up with the idea this week that when I win the lottery tomorrow I'll buy the Revology Mustang, move to Figure Eight Island and leave the drainage issues to the next guy.

Hey GUS, when I was about 14 the kid down the road got a '66 fastback. His parents were a 'no tv' house so he hung out with us all the time and we were fast friends. I think his Dad felt a little bad about the 'no tv' rule and compensated by providing he and his little bro with anything with a motor. Especially dirtbikes. When he bought Frank the '66, his Dad sent the car to Indy where it got a brilliant blue metallic finish. It then went to a shop where the 289 engine was 'balanced and blue printed'. As soon as it got home, it got jacked up and aftermarket wheels and tires. It was a shiny beast that was the envy of Washington High School. Coming home from the county fair one night Frank opened it up. Even the slightest rise in the caused a sensation of flying as he pegged the speedometer at 140 mph. I was in the front passenger seat (no seat belts) holding on to seat and thinking 'Shitttt!!!'. Suddenly, already bent back to about 30 degrees, it snapped off and flew into oblivion. Scared shitless, I was barely able to stammer out 'Frank! Shut her down!!' I don't know if we hit 140 or not but I'm sure it's the fastest speed I've ever hit in a land vehicle. I've been a Mustang fan ever since. I was thinking a Roush tell I ran into the Revology site. I'm picking up what you're putting down on the RESERVE thing for college costs. It'd be sweet to take a cruise around town in that before that happens!

I was listening to the news on the way home today and they had a report that those poor souls in Cali may be without power for a week. The utility says they gotta go out and check their lines for damage after the high winds cease before they turn the power back on. That's gonna suck big time...

So the Euros won't take back their Jihadi's. As long as they don't we are stuck helping the Kurds who are the Euro Jihadi's jailers. The Turks hate the Kurds. They think their terrorists and want them off their border so as not to help the PKK in Turkey. Additionally, the Turks have about 3.5 million Syrian refugees in their country. Turks see a twofer in the making. Kick out the Kurds along a 30 mile buffer zone in Syria to prevent any arms smuggling and other support to PKK and an area where they can move the refugees outta their country. It's probably a threefer for the Turks since it gives them the opportunity to also kill some Kurds while accomplishing the two tasks. The Euros aren't being helpful and the Turks are busting Trumps nuts over the Kurds. Trump says 'Femall and I hope they all diaf.' Can't sez I blame him. Endless wars and all that. I feel sorry for the Kurds. It's a shame Sykes-Picot couldn't have created a Kurdistan when it could've been done.
