REQUEST PERMISSION TO COME ABOARD



CHARLESTOWN, Mass. (Jan. 14, 2008) The first major snowfall of the New Year blankets the USS Constitution. Despite the weather "Old Ironsides," remained open for free public tours. At 210 years-old, USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world, manned by 67 active-duty United States Sailors and visited by nearly half a million visitors annually.

The thrills that other people seek don't really hold much appeal for you. Bungee jumping? Skydiving? No thanks!
You prefer to stay with what's tried and true. There's a reason why you love your old favorites so much.

And while you aren't typically adventurous, you're probably adventurous in ways that go unnoticed.
Maybe you read voraciously - or watch a lot of independent films. You get your thrills in a more peaceful, sustainable way.

Not anymore. I had 20 years of adventure.

Today has been the pits, and doesn’t look to get any better.

The compute function of our payroll has not worked since I tried late afternoon yesterday....and still not all day today. This is big trouble. We cannot check the input and we print checks tomorrow. They just said they are still working on the problem, but it looks like smaller batches (a max of 8 can be entered) seem to be working. Terrific...we have over a 1000 to compute. Tonight will not have any homework, but we can’t check all in the morning. Wednesday will be chaos!

IN MEMORIAM
OFFICERS AND CREW OF USS THRESHER SSN-593




Lost At Sea 10Apr1963 With 129 Men Aboard

I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7 (KJV)


"Arm yourselves, and be ye men of valour, and be in readiness for the conflict; for it is better for us to perish in battle than to look upon the outrage of our nation and our altar. As the Will of God is in Heaven, even so let it be."
(1 Maccabees 3:58–60)

Eternal Father, Strong to Save
(Click)




Rest in Peace, fallen brothers, rest in peace!
We who remain hold you in high honor.
Rest, fallen brothers, in this sacred precinct;
We who remain keep this place sacred.
Rest, fallen brothers, among these, your comrades;
We who remain keep the watch.
Rest, fallen brothers, amid these who heeded the Nation’s call;
We who remain press the fight forward in your name.
Rest, fallen brothers, lay down thy burden;
We who remain have taken up the torch.
Rest in Peace, fallen brothers, rest in eternal peace!

~ You Are Extremely Adventurous ~

You are adventurous to the point of being reckless. You need to keep your adrenaline pumping. You have a playful approach to life, and you get a lot of joy from taking risks. You like to life in the moment.

Like most adventurous people, you get bored easily whenever you are between thrills. Try to find adventure in everyday life. Eat a new meal or make a new friend. That will hold you over until your next big fun experience

~ Hmmm, Well Now ~

Wrist still giving problems but doc sez the cast will be off in a few days.

Some of my adventures:

Rode my Bike through a (small) tornado.
Flew a WW1-era biplane over the Florida Keys.
Flew in a helicopter over an erupting volcano to get a photo shoot.
Climbed down a waterfall(Hawaii)
Climbed UP a waterfall(Jamaica)
Rode a mule up the Sierra Madre (Mexico)
White water rafted Cat4 in Colorado
Piloted a MASH helicopter
Flew an antique Navy Texas T6 Aircraft
Rode the Hana Rd on a Sporster(Maui) (Look it up...)
Took pictures as I slid down the emergency ramp of a “disabled’ 757

And that’s just the stuff I remember! LOL!

Wonderful Ride!

Except...the turnpike took away the sign to Key West, and closed a couple of ramps, so I ended up in a not-so-nice section of Miami!

I finally got directions back to I95 from the only one who looked as though he could speak English...a Louis Farrakhan look-alike(complete with weird BOW TIE) who was giving out newspapers on the corner. He directed me back to 95 which just ENDED and became Route 1 in Biscayne Bay. Then there was a huge traffic snarl due to an accident. I scooted off Rt 1 and headed west to homestead, finding the Turnpike and proceeded to the Keys. It was on the 20 mile straight that goes through the Mangroves that i saw the sign “CROCODILES CROSSING”. That just made me laugh.

When i got to my destination, we all went for a swim, had a few beers and some shrimp, and then I went home.

The return trip was uneventful.

The Irish part of me burns, and the Indian part of me tans, so I now have a lovely, painful tan.

What a GREAT Day!

I guess I’m not happy unless I am “overcoming” something!

You Are Adventurous
You are quite adventurous and brave, but you are also reasonable about it. You don't have to be on an adventure 24/7.
You have good judgment and balance. You like to try new and exciting things, but you also pay attention to risk.

You're not the type of person who would throw your life away just to go on a new trip or have a new romantic partner.
You like your thrills in small, safe doses. You are gutsy in all aspects of your life from career to relationships.

Good evening, ML!

*HUGS*

I can't remember where the extension to the Fla Tpke kicks in - haven't been down that way for many a long year. The extension would have taken you out to the edge of the Glades and away from the congestion and mayhem of Miami. I used to drive the stretch of Dixie Highway - US-1 - between Dadeland Mall, at S.W. 82nd St. every day to downtown Miami and back home in the evening. It was a bear in the late 70's and early 80's - I can't imagine what a mess it must be now!

It kicks in just north of the intersection with I-95. I was down there a month ago for the coldest weekend of the year to hear a chamber music concert in Palmetto Bay.

So sorry to hear this, Kathy. I hope your IT people can find a solution soon.

We had a patch yesterday afternoon where our software crashed. We'd reboot, get back in and code a few documents and then it would crash again. Extremely frustrating - we have a production deadline coming up this week. Today was better, thankfully.

The Extension to the Turnpike terminates at Florida City.

It is the route I was SUPPOSED to take, but they had taken away the sign and the ramp was under construction.

The ride home was LOVELY!

Hee Hee - good one! It’s more like “would you gents like to change your underwear now?” I remember one time when landing in a storm and one engine went out. I developed the hiccups and I asked my FO to scare me so’s to get rid of them.

I remember it well. I was very interested in submarines in my youth. Read a lot of books on them - Run Silent Run Deep - Raising of the S-51, etc.

I worked on a lot of plastic models back then. USS George Washington - the first Polaris submarine.

I've always been in awe of the men who served in our subs - they are a special breed. My cousin (by marriage) served in subs for twenty-five years. An outstanding officer, he died of a heart attack before his fiftieth birthday in 1998. He was advanced posthumously to Rear Admiral.

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Keep It Simple

April 10, 2013

James Madison, fourth president of the United States, was instrumental in the drafting of the US constitution. He warned against creating laws “so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.” Based on some of the complicated government forms I’ve read, that’s advice that still needs to be heeded a little more often!

Sometimes when sharing the gospel, we make it more complicated than it needs to be. We can be glad that the Bible presents the good news of salvation in clear, easily understood language. Jesus said to Nicodemus, an educated Pharisee, that “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). He later said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (14:6). The apostle Paul said it in straightforward language to the jailor in Philippi who asked how to be saved: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31).

God’s precious love story is simple. He sent His Son to rescue us from sin and death. Wonderful news that even children can understand.

Tell me the story of Jesus,
Write on my heart every word;
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard. —Crosby
Through faith in Christ, we receive God’s pardon and escape sin’s penalty.

Read: 2 Corinthians 1:12-14

We are not writing any other things to you than what you [can] read or understand. —2 Corinthians 1:13
Bible in a Year:
1 Samuel 15-16; Luke 10:25-42
