Hate to break it to you, Choco, but there never was an actual beer by the name of P-38, named after one of the planes that cleaned Admiral Yamamoto's clock after a record-breaking flight to intercept his plane over the Pacific.

Among the TI's and others at Lackland during the fifties, the joke was that you'd sometimes "drink one and pee thirty-eight." In my case, at least, it often seemed just that way. So the joke came from the name of the plane and the fact that it often seemed like you peed a LOT more than you drank.

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

ANYway, I had enough of all of it back then.

Good night.

GR, I used to drink mine at the UN Club in Itaewon my first tour there and then spread myself around at the local bars outside Osan my second tour. Taught at both Seoul American High School and Osan American High School for a total of 15 years in the Republic. Married there, raised both sons there up to middle school.

OB was my staple. That P-38 beer was named after a twin engine, twin tail fighter in WWII and yes, I've not only heard of it, but swilled a little bit while my brother was stationed at Lackland in the 50s--I was a minor at the time, but the beer was all right. Not as good as the Korean--in country--version of OB, though.

Sid, I was talking about now--no snow now.

'Morning.

Couldn't sleep, so I lay there for a few hours, and now I'm up drinking coffee. Sure is good coffee, too. Few days ago, we got really tired of the cranky old "Mr. Coffee" thing, so I asked Kimbu to pick up a Black and Decker on her way home from work. Little more expensive than Mr. Coffee, but this thing makes GOOD coffee...and it doesn't take thirty minutes to do is, the way the old stopped-up MC did. Thing is, you can only douche those things so many times 'til they just hardly work at all....and they're junk to start with.

You guys enjoyed your "OB" beer, huh? Well, when I was a "HUT-TWO"er out at Lackland AFB back in the fifties, we'd all go to the Mugwum beer joint or the Copper Kettle drive-in or to some other fine establishment to drink "P-38" Beer.

Betcha' never heard of that, huh?

...but I'll wait to see if anybody has before I tell all about it.

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Sure am glad to hear that, WR-INC...but remember that if/when ANYthing goes wrong, you have the Docputer Lifetime Gar-on-TEE!

LOL LOL LOL, etc., etc.

Greetings Doc, Baylee, Mindy, PayPump, Mick, WRINC, Joelimo, Geezer, Wack, MadDogUSMC, Loree71, Full of Fun, Chasms, blkvette00, Psycho Sid, & Others:

Happy Friday! 36 degrees this morning. U certainly enjoyed the warmer temperatures yesterday.

In early (again) today on account of my need to attend a training class. Accordingly, it will be another day of driving solo outside of my carpool and braving the traffic. Surprisingly, the traffic during the morning commute was actually reasonable once I got off I-75N and traveled the surface streets. Yesterday afternoon's commute was a different story!

Following training I have the penultimate volleyball match for Georgia State tonight at 6:00p and the final one tomorrow evening.

MadDog - indeed!

Choco - in my haste to do other items things last night I left out a word in my comment - it should have said "Choco - I had some "OB" beer when stationed in Yongsan - pretty *-good-* local beer!"

Off to breakfast and start to the day.

Have a great day all!

Good evening, all. Been really busy today with a 'puter I bought off eBay, thinking I was getting a pretty good deal. Oh, well..win some, lose some sleep making a winner out of a loser --- for as we speak, the nasty little sucker is dancing, singing and SHOUTING! Now the ONLY thing even a little bad about is the fact that apparently some kid smeared it with PB & J or something and tried to "fix" it. The keyboard was "woggly" and not properly inserted, and there were at LEAST seven or eight screws missing here and there.

Oh, well, it's got an i5 quad-core processor and 6 gigs of memory in it, and as soon as get the new keyboard and hard drive and caddy for it, it'll go back up on eBay. Well...I still haven't been able to figure out why the dadgum mouse pad won't work, but I'll get 'er done after the new keyboard comes. I THINK it has to do with that.

Fun! Fun! Fun!

Then tomorrow I've got the part I need for a Toshiba coming in, so maybe I can get THAT on eBay, too, and get back a little of the cash I've been spending on "good junk."

Sure do love y'all...take care...I GOTTA sleep for a change.

Geez, TO gets a bit of lake-effect weather from Lake Ontario, but most of the problems go to a ways east of us, on the way to Kingston N of the lake, and whatever part of NYS is east --Watertown and that area. Buffalo gets its messy weather off Lake Erie, and it is very localized. It can be sunny in Hamilton clouded over in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and a total mess in Biffalo. Then if you keep on driving south, the process is reversed.

Geez, the last news says that the game will be cancelled because they are expecting another couple of FEET of white stuff before Sunday, and there will be no crews available to clear those roads.

Sid, I agree with both doc and WR about your profiles, and your chances. But you could try the cat-lover angle!

A great deal came my way last evening - on the news. Travel to Buffalo and get paid ten bucks an hours to risk a heart attack shoveling snow at the Buffalo Bills stadium PLUS get a ticket to watch the Bills play the Jets on Sunday. First off, shoveling, no matter how much it pays, isn't something I'd want to do as a job. Second, the JETS????

Sid, give it up. Go out to the barn and find yourself a nice warm raccoon.

Happy Thursday! 31 degrees this morning.

In early today due to a busy day with an early morning meeting.

MadDog - true enough; it's important to have bench strength, but when the bench is nearly another starting 5, that will be tough for most teams to deal with.

I'm off tonight, but have two more volleyball matches (this Sat and Sun) and one more home football game on Nov 29th. Basketball returns home on Dec. 4th so once football is complete, I'll be down to one sport for a while.

Off to it.

Have a great day all!

Well, Sir Bono, I think Tiffany already has a hubby, so we're both out of luck, anyway. I just figure ain't nothing wrong with sniffing, long's y'don't get too serious about it.

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

As to eHarmony, you deliberately ran everything that even MIGHT be interested off before even starting...which tells me you don't really want a mate, anyway.

Let me write the ad for you. I will NOT lie, and I will GUARANTEE there will be interested female-type personages. Fact is, you could come down here for two weeks and go back with a dang good cook, housekeeper and "etc."

Now I gotta get to bed.

grmoore...which "platoon"? That is what they are calling them. We have a few mini teams in one! That's how this team operates. Coach Cal isn't just subbing one player, he subs all 5 at once and puts in another set of 5. That team has super depth and super talent. I'm still trying to figure out how many "platoons" UK has!

I joined eHarmony two years ago and on my profile I told them how it was -- semi-educated biker trash from NW Detroit living in Saginaw County on a 164-year-old farm from my fathers side of the family...'d say about 90% of those gals
blocked me...except for one girl from North Dakota. She got scared when I started talking about motorcycle clubs and Detroit.

Like I said in the past the calendar hanging in the milk room is dated August 1961.

I am a bit late, but just now loading up the van with the extra winter supplies I keep in there, like a shovel and candles and water and granola bars. The small sleeping bag stays in all year. But the water bottles are already frozen . . . .

Good morning.

Had trouble getting to sleep, so I got up, pigged on peanut butter 'n crackers, took some doctor dope and a generic Actifed, then slept like a baby.

....then got up with a high blood sugar, of course. So...at least I slept.

Nice and cool this AM, but not SNOW, and all my little bonsai doods and doodesses seem to be happy, both those under the "grow lights" here in my office and those under the window in the LR. I also save several of Kimbu's plants that were outside, along with my staghorns by hauling them off into the greenhouse and putting an electric heater out there. Probably pretty costly way, but easier than propane.

Yeah...and now I need to go turn that heater off.

Later, all.
Oh...but you do need to see this...what a BLAST!

Well, we were expecting 6-10 inches of stuff, but we ended up with 12-18 inches, depending upon where you are. I just "sno-Blo'd" a whole lot of it and now I have to try to see if my Ty-oh-dah will make it into the office. All schools and universities closed today because 6-8 more inches are expected.

Huh. No one wants any of this, eh?

Happy Tuesday! 26 degrees (without considering wind chill) this morning.

Carpet in the living room, family room, stairs and upstairs hallway as well as 3 upholstered furniture pieces complete! It looks nice and was completed by a local south side company.

Blo - no thanks; I'll watch it from here thanks! ;)

The Georgia State Men's Basketball team got their first real test in Iowa last night playing #14 Iowa State. They played them pretty well during most of the first half but didn't have the bench strength or deep talent. They wound up losing by 23 in front of a raucous home crowd. Last night's game started the first of a six game road trip.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!
