Bill did you have to put the squirrels on turbo at the peak when the wind quit blowing this week ?

Reading in the local wipe where the wind farms out west weren't doing much except being really big yard art on Tuesday I think.

Registered nurse working in a pain managment clinic. Basically, I spend a great deal of my day ensuring that the same number of people who are breathing when they walk into the building, leave the same way. There's less paperwork that way.

Just got done with one of the perks of my job. A fully functioning P-38 Lightning was brought in to do some PR shoot side by side with our F-35 Lightning II and it is parked in one of the hangars here on facility. I was down there scoping it out at the beginning of my shift. I wish they would have let me snag some shots with the camera phone. It was very cool being next to that flying piece of history.

I negotiate and manage the contracts between my company and the Asian firms that manufacture our notebooks PCs. Dealing with in-house lawyers is not my fun time.

So, I'm guessing that since you couldn't take camera phone pictures, you also wouldn't be able to let anyone into the hanger so they could roam around the Lighning, huh?

I'm a underworked, overpaid, incompetent municipal government employee. I thought about retiring but where else could I go to make the money I do, doing as little as I do?
Now, it's time for my morning nap.

I'm a mod on TWT. Interesting work. Pay sucks.

Really, Geologist by degree & license. Working for a geotechnical engineering firm, so at any time I may be:

Logging soils
Writing reports
Quality Manager
manual labor
Proofreader
....
Seems like you have had a rocky career.

I think I am an electronics technician, when I am not surfing the web. Neither pays very well but when you hit the big 5 O nobody wants to hire you or pay for your experiance. So I took a job with Lowes. To save up to buy a Buell and/or a Ural.

Unfortunately, there are serious issues with cameras and informal visitors at both of our facilities (John and I work in different locations, different divisions, his builds airplanes, we shoot them down :-P )

There should eventually be some PR photo releases of those two aircraft together...

I love a P-38! I got to see White Lightning down in Burnett before it made a forced landing in Louisiana a few years back. I think they have it repaired and back in Burnett now, but I'm not sure.

I also saw a B-17 flying over north Fort Worth about a week ago. I think it was Chuckie, which flies out of Meacham.
