  4. Ha - Ha!

    Looking at some of Abraham Lincoln's letters and speeches in his biography, both the words and the quote are simply too short to be authentic, (even if the internet existed back then). He usually filled at least half a page, in small print. I personally think the Gettysburg address was so short because he ran out of paper.

  5. He really did say that. I've seen the YouTube vid!

  9. North, Is the Ouijaberry on the paranormal network? I understand the data use charges are really high!

  12. Oijaberry data charges. BWAHAHAHAHAAHA,

    Rifles are sighted, dinner is cooked, Barkley is tired from a bike ride AND a walk. I had some conversation with a friend far away, a glass of Malbec and NCIS. Good day.

  13. Brigid,
    On the right of the pic is a "corproate" jet with a red tail. The famous 99th squadron, the Tuskeegee Airmain, aka The Red Tails now lives on as 99th flying training squadron. Any connection or just coincidence?

  14. Brad - it's not a corporate jet (the navy logo on the side is the tip off but it's really hard to see in the photo).

    Not the 99th. They fly the T1 Jayhawk.

    It's Navy T-39. The word Navy on the tail is not visible in the photo. VT-86. Call sign Rocket.

  15. No one mentioned the screen saver. . :-)

  16. I am a day behind in reading the post so I guess I get to comment on the screen saver. It looks like someone wants to do a few doughnuts in the Microsoft stock screen saver. What a great idea. Is there one with an alien ship landing?

    As for the quote, I think it is great. I may have to print is up on some nice paper and post it on the wall of my office.
