    I just hope they have time for a quick game of Beach Volleyball before heading off to war.

    Sounds awesome. I wish they fly here more often. There used to be an aircraft factory here.

    Let me tell you about loud. The Blue Angels do their practice routine on Wednesdays, and the vacant field next to my office is one of their marks. The windows rattle continuously.

    And watch the pizza deliveries there as well ...

    the Pentagon food court is probably 24 hours, but I'd bet most of it shuts down after normal business hours

    LOL!!! YES!!! Not just gutter guards, but the entire gutter system, and the last two days was the first time they've experienced rain. Rain was not heavy though, but they work great.

    I wonder how cold a pizza is by the time it gets delivered there. It's a BIG place. I used to have to go visit my clients there twice a year and always got a bunch of coffee boxes and donuts at the Dunkin Donuts there. Just the walk from that food court to where I had to go was exhausting. Getting into the bldg. was no small feat either and that whole process had to be done before I could even start walking toward the food court. Been a while since I was there, but after 9/11 they put guards on BMW K-bikes with MP-5s in front of the entrances. There had been some shenanigans in the parking lot, so they decided to make sure no one could outrun the next batch of guards.

    Father in law was a B47/B52 pilot in the Air Force. In times of bad weather he had to leave the family behind and fly to a safe base. With how bad the weather is currently across the country, wouldn't be a bit surprised if they aren't stashing aircraft at civilian airports until the weather breaks.

    But then again, during the Cuban missile crisis the AF scattered the B52's loaded hot with nukes all across the country and in mostly commercial airports in case the primary AF bases got hit. He sat loaded and on call at St. Louis International for a week or two with nukes and ready to roll. Maybe trouble is brewing. Who knows...

    They do that on purpose so you maintain proper weight standards. Make you take those 5000 steps per day

    I got to see multinational naval exercises in the Indian Ocean as a nothing seaman on the flag ship for the Middle East Force (COMIDEASTFOR) - in Karachi harbor on the bridge waiting to get underway (Captain's phone talker for sea and anchor detail and general quarters) a French gas turbine destroyer decided to drag race out of the harbor and threw a rooster tail as high as our bridge taking off. We had to pick up some stuff from an aircraft carrier, the Constellation, and I was on the Mike boat (assault landing craft) that went and it was incredible, bobbing next to it as they lowered down whatever it was. Good times.

    Another time we steamed right through a Soviet task force at anchor off the horn of Africa approaching the Gulf of Aden where they were protecting their turf in Ethiopia - right down the middle of their fleet, warships, support ships, a sub tied up alongside, while they all went to general quarters - what a hoot!

    Maybe they're filming a movie. When I was in Mae Hong Son, Thailand, they were filming Air America. There was constant take offs and landings at the local airport.
