    x2 ... cool video Tom.

    I ever tell you guys the Minot AFB snow plow in base housing versus Chevy Chevette story? When I retrained from avionics mx to command and control (op ctr) my class was 8 retrainees like myself. One of the guys had been a CE hvy equipment operator. There's a reason they have rules up north for base housing prohibiting parking on the street in Winter. Long story short, guy's running one of those big plows with the auger to throw the snow, clearing a few feet of snow out of base housing. Chevette buried in snow along road is invisible to him. He hit it from behind and was up to the steering wheel by the time he got everything disengaged. :eek: He didn't get in any trouble ... don't know how the car owner's claim went on that. :laugh:

    :wave: Morning Paul.

    I don't want to talk about that stupid ... ABORT RANT. :frusty: My opinion, she's an embarassment to the state and has brought on a lot of stupid AK based reality shows that are as far from reality as possible. Boils my blood. :mad: ... but I digress. I try to boycott her and the stupid shows, for my own sanity.

    Yes please, I'll have some of that snow ... not happening this time. Clearing up and gonna be frigid cold next few days. Not sure the official accumulation, but guessing a few inches up north in Palmer and about 6 inches here on base and in Anchorage. Dry fluffy stuff due to cold temps. Mother Nature seems to be toying with us this year, again.

    Gold Rush show is ok. And I watched most of the first season of AK State Troopers, couple of my neighbors are Troopers, and I kind of liked it initially. Then a few Summers back when we were camping at Deep Creek and taking our Zodiac out to catch halibut in Cook Inlet, Trooper Howie Peterson and his family were camping next to us for a week. Got to talk with him over beers around the campfire in the evenings. He was a regular on the show first one or two seasons. I learned that the Troopers on the show are coereced into doing the show. He said he didn't mind at first, but the publicity got to him after a while and in the end it made him and, more worrisome, his family, targets for the less desireable elements in our society. He actually had to get a lawyer and go to court to get out of doing the show and not lose his job. In my book, that's utter BS for a guy to have to go through that. BTW, extremely nice guy and authentic true Alaskan. Truly enjoyed sharing time with him and his family. But I quit watching the show after that.

    And on the other ... I wish FoxNews would quit pushing her on the public ... I've given up on them now too, they've gone too far right IMHO. I wish folks could come to the middle of the table and get this country heading in some sort of meaningful direction. It's all or none on both sides, I fear it will be our downfall. :(

    But enough of that ... Hope all is well there with all of you. :)

    Agree they aren't completely soured, but the nut jobs they coddle get on my nerves. I've taken to watching that new OAN (One America News). So far they seem to be close to spin free, if that's even possible in this 24hr cable news society we've grown into. I miss the simple days of my youth, when everything wasn't so high tech and instant access. Not to be naive, just nostalgic. :eek:

    Totally agree. That's the Jeremy Clarkson not bad approval face. She's definitely eye candy off the top shelf. :drool:

    :wave: Morning all. Supposed to get a few more inches tonight. Hopefully the sun comes out for a bit to melt some of the ice on the walks.

    Hey Zach early wishes for a Happy Birthday. How's Pop doing?

    Have a good day everyone.

    Mornin' Cool Old Dude Op :)

    Our snow is gone for now; clouds drifted out and can see stars. Temp diving to negative single digits just before sunrise, then only predicted to get "up" to 0°F. Once I get home this morning, I think we'll stay home and watch TV with Bear and Shadow. ;)

    Pffft. Some of us old geezers get up early. :p

    Good morning Ken and Rob. Goal for today is getting the laundry room cleared out and cabinets off the wall. Going to try and paint it up next week. I have to have the kitchen cleared out by next Monday. I will be busy all week with that.

    Thanks!:D

    Doing good. he is done helping my cousin build his house. he did some of the flooring, put base board up, hung some of the doors, put trim around doors. crown molding up some sheet rock work/painting and some other stuff.

    My cousin for the most part did not pay a contractor for build it all. My dad has done all that type of work before so he know what he was doing.

    he own a concrete pumping company and had a lot of the guys that usually do that helping build the house. They should be moving everything in this week.

    Morning all!! Zach, you'll find that many of us old geezers are up well before 6...I'm lucky to sleep past 5 any more.

    Going to be windy and cold today - another snow storm coming in tonight through tomorrow. A great way to start the first day of classes at the college!! I'll go in today to speak at orientation - the Pres gets to pontificate.

    Happy Birthday, Zach!! Enjoy every one you have!!

    How did your Russian themed shoot go?

    Keep it to a reasonable length Sir, nobody likes to be over-pontificated. ;)

    Stay safe, and warm, out there. :)

    hahahaha. i figured just messing with you guys.:p
    Thanks. who knows what i’ll do. maybe in school may not go i don’t know

    I started welding school jan 5th. it’s 4 days a week 4pm to 10pm but my so call”teacher” yes i’m using that term lightly as posable!! is a huge jerk and not really a teacher at all and now is singling me out on stuff.


    list of some of the things he has done or said.

    -puts in a safety video and talks during 90% of it about something not even related to the video so you can’t hear the video that you will have a test about.
    - tries to give you a test on stuff you have not gone over. with over half the students that have never done anything welding and don’t know much at all if any about welding.
    -go on and on about how he can’t teach the class the way he wants too.
    -Tell us that if he ever challenge him in anyway or ask a question that he thinks is stupid we will regret it. he will tell us we are doing good even if we are not and wont care about our grade.

    this one is kinda confusing...
    -last week we only had class 3 nights because of MLK. he ask’s the class of 7 kids who can answer a math question. he said whats "6.5hrs but how many hours are in 3 days” he should have said whats 6.5hours “x” 3. one kid was kinda confused and said 72hours. than said another answer that was wrong. I said it was 19.5hours witch is correct. Apparently i made him mad or something(again that same night for what ever reason i still don’t know) he said he was not talking to me and blah blah blah only wants one person to ever answer his questions. he also never singled someone out to ask the question or answer it. just who in the class can give me the answer.

    he also tells us to look something up or we will be going over something. tells us that none of us can have the same answer.

    he can’t even plain out the class for that day or the next. says we will do something and we don’t.

    I have complained a few times and i don’t feel they are doing anything about it, or they talked to him and somehow he knows it was me and he is mad at me and trying to take it out on me. Almost just want to drop out of the class.

    Thanks! yeah i try. i’ll be 23 so nothing will really change. 2 more years and my insurance will go down so thats a plus. lol

    I don’t think it is to bad as is. knock on wood I have never been in any kind of wreck or accident other than just fish tailing and doing a 180 off the road. but the grass was level with the road service so only thing that happened was the truck got muddy. could have been pretty bad, but as soon as i was going backwards i just put the pedal to the floor and was able to come to a stop. if i would not have done that i would have hit a telephone pole and a bunch of trees. so i have never had to make a claim of any kind. I don’t have any tickets of any kind either so that also helps keep it down.

    I’m doing 100X better than both my brothers at my age. they both had a few tickets and wrecks.
