Go Bob!!!

One of my heroes is named Bob Hoover. I would love him if only for his way of making the FAA look like the fools they usually are, but also genuinely admire his undisputed record of superb flying ability.

This is Bob. He is now 90 years old.

The reason he is on my mind today is the article in this link from a local newspaper. For those who choose not to click it, it states that during an inflight emergency, someone had the presence of mind to call him and ask him for help.

Which he gave.

Which worked.

Attaboy Bob.

Copper shares the opinion of one of my favorite fellow bloggers on the choice of the winner at Westminster.

THIS is what a DOG looks like...

not something you would step on and flush down the toilet if you saw it in the dark on your way to the WC at three am.

Judges---get help.

Well, Hello There Boys & Girls

Fin has always been a lover of irony, and today's sample is somewhat personal.

My 'good' laptop threw a wobbly and as a result, I spent over two solid hours with Dell tech support who (we thought) fixed the problems --oops -"issues" which prompted my call to them.

So I wrote up a glowing praise filled account of their efforts and results, only to find that I now cannot access my own blog with said lappy.

So thanks, guys. Seriously, I was impressed by your efforts, if a little less impressed now by some of the results. Next time I have several hours to kill, maybe I'll call back and we can work on this one next.
