  1. Fought the British in New Orleans? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Would they bring handguns and AR15s back to the shelves? One could hope. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Driving on US41A in middle Tennessee, I passed a business whose display sign said 100*. This was mid-afternoon, 3:30 or so. Don’t know how accurate that 100* was, not whether the reading was higher earlier. I was impressed regardless. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. As I recall, the P-38 had counter rotating engines. Did the double P-51? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Since 1945 there has been an ever increasing crescendo of manufacturing capacity leaving the States. Where once we manufactured tens of thousands of fighter planes we do well today to make tens. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. The circle can never be more than 1-1/2 lanes wide. Ideally a scant one lane wide. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Actually for a long time they didn’t. Then the CEO announced that all employees would have Christmas off. Suddenly locks had to be installed in all stores. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Used to be signs posted which said SLOW MEN WORKING That generated so much comment it was changed... several times... think after all the smart remarks and protests it now says WORKING Even that generates snorts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Falling Water... Frank Lloyd Wright. Beautiful design. Beautiful setting. Mr Wright was a better architect than engineer, based upon reading about structural issues. This is now a tourist attraction, open for tours. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Never owned one, but think they are classier than the PPK. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Much of that with modern technology would be on a 1”x2” or smaller chip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Trains

    I had raised a question earlier about the lump on the axle of the GE 44 ton diesel in a posted picture. The specs say it has four traction motors. Its stable mate, the GE 45 ton diesel, has two traction motors plus side rods. I was wondering if parts had been juggled and a traction motor assembly from a 45 ton had been put in a 44 ton. There is a railroad museum about an hour from me in Cowan TN which has a GE 44 ton diesel on display. So I made a field trip to answer my question. Sure enough the lump on that axle is a gear box connected to a traction motor whose armature is parallel to the axle. And each truck has two traction motor assemblies. So TOS has once again proven its value in educating people. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Would have been nice had the Boy Scouts of America held firm, but they were probably a lost cause by the time the question arose. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. There is a third kind of faith - faith that vehicles in the opposing lane will stay on their side. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
