Fly blue ponder.

Coffee, tea, don't lie to me,
I beg to fly on bended knee.
Come, bring the heat,
That's quite a feat;
Your management, I'd like to see.

A friend sent this to me via email.

http://www.dailyyonder.com/convoys-and-social-media-come-to-the-rescue-for-midwest-ranchers-after-wildfires/2017/04/08/18728/

How did the media not cover this story?

A piece in the Amarillo Globe, for example, told of a young couple who perished with a friend trying to save their cows. That local story went national for people following through social media.

In the ensuing weeks, social media users shared the personal stories of ranchers who told of dead livestock and cows burned beyond saving. We read the blogs of ranchers who lost their homes, buildings, and hundreds of cattle that couldn’t outrun fires that tore through the grasslands at 50 miles an hour. Ranchers told of crouching in green wheat fields to save their lives. They shared how they tried to outrun the fires in pickup trucks pulling trailers of family horses. Our farmer hearts were broken by stories of ranchers mercifully shooting cows harmed beyond saving. Burned out eyes, nostrils seared shut, dead calves at their sides. A piece in High Plains Journal, “Seeing Your Dad Cry Leaves a Mark,” told of a rancher weeping as he shot his beloved ranch horse and cattle herd, burned beyond hope.
Local press was on the story. But the national response was muted, considering the disaster affected such a large swath of the country and involved four states.

I think one of the saddest things is how there are so many people who are willing to believe horrible things about President Trump and yet give Assad a pass.

How bad do you have to be to think that? The other choice is even worse, that they KNOW Trump is a pretty good guy but want to destroy him anyway.

Just finished training with a thumbs up (yippee!) and the first thing I did was hustle to the Library getting ready for my next trip.

Good Morning. What a relief to have my mind free again to read whatever the heck I want to read.

Buckeye,

They trained us yesterday on new RNAV (RNP) procedures, which I think is going to eventually replace the ILS System at a much reduced cost. Amazing to see how this system keeps you within .30 DME in turns, then rolls you out on final with an ultra sensitive altitude scale that shows you =/- 75 feet, then dumps you off at Decision Altitude with the plane pointed at a 3 degree glideslope. Amazing for me to se the new technology. I know some companies are already using it so we are late to the party, but still amazing stuff. Excellent training, and believe it or not I actually enjoyed some of it.

Another Bob,

In old Navy days flying cargo in the modified S-3 we would cube out all the time and never hit max gross weight, but in the MD-11 it seems that when we do reach "full," 99% of the time it is a function of reaching gross weight as opposed to cubing out. The only cubing out flights I can recall off the top were hauling Formula One Race-cars which needed individual pallets, and as I recall we were full well before we got anywhere near Max Takeoff gross weight---we just didn't have anyplace to put more stuff since the palleted cars took up all the deck space.

"OK, Professor, let's see if I've got this right...

Pence is a danger because he strictly lives up to his Christian beliefs,

and Trump is a danger because he does not live up to Christian beliefs ("traditional Christian social practice mandates").

So, Pence is a danger because he is not like Trump, yet Trump is a danger because he is not like Pence.

I assume you can enter the procedure from multiple points and the RNAV system computes exactly what you need to do?

Turns, attitude, power, etc, and puts it on the flight director?

Ok, JOMers, I'm stumped.

I just killed a rattlesnake that came to close to my house.

It's body is wriggling on the hawk perch waiting for pick up. But the head is eyeballing me as I slug a tequila shot... or two.

In the past I have placed the venom filled head in a small coffee can and lit it up with some gas. I have no idea if that is effective or not.

In boy scouts we would do our best to shoo them away before being forced to kill. The head would get buried as deep as we could dig.

Any suggestions for proper disposal? Google sends me to the "Repent you snake murderer! Repent now!!!" sites. Zero help.

daddy

Yep, Buckeye, very close to that. The descending turns with altitude and speed control were amazing to watch. The full altitude deflection in close was the plus or minus 75 feet thing I was mentioning, so being off 75 feet would signal a gross altitude error. I doubt it'd be off more than a few feet at most. Hope they make it so people can't hack the systems!

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Dig a hole and bury it. My grandmother, expert snake-killer with a hoe, would probably just throw it in the brush. Dig a hole then pick it up with the shovel, drop it in and cover it up.
Put a rock on top for good measure, or some bricks.

What else would you do? Run it down the garbage disposal?

Grace is doing well. Her helicopter parents are driving me to distraction, though. "We can come by but we have to be home by 8, so she can sleep in her crib" "She's on a fixed schedule" HA!!!

Baby and fixed schedule is an oxymoron. I'm just laughing my ass off as they stress over her lack of cooperation. Luckily the daughter is as well. No helicoptering for her, I'll bet.

Captain Hate

Re gibbon and his aversion to Christianity, how does he explain how the eastern empire lasted another thousand uears

Probably because his beloved Turks allowed them to. There's no doubt that the Byzantine empire was poorly run near the end, paying off a succession of mercenaries to keep the invading hordes at bay if not out and out bribing them not to attack. The Crusades were a series of absolute disasters for them but it was only a matter of time until expansions by others from all directions would be problematic.

Not sure what produced his aversion to Christianity but he seemingly never passed up an opportunity to take shots at it while ignoring the headchoppers jerking it to the Pornan. An early lefty historian.

hrtshpdbox

Laura Ingraham, on Fox & Friends, casts aspersions on the idea that the President justifies attack on Syria because of seeing photos that upset him, says she's seen photos from Egypt where kids are locked in huts and burned to death with flamethrowers, wonders sarcastically if seeing those photos would cause the President to attack those forces in Egypt. Well, Laura, maybe they would, maybe they wouldn't.

Trump doesn't need to show his hand, doesn't need to make sure every one of his spokespeople speaks from the same sheet. All the "the problem is we don't know what's next" talk is idle speculation. The gassing of kids in Syria was met with an American response, it was the right response, and that's all she wrote.
