  1. Somewhere out near Edwards AFB, isn't he?
  2. God of spirits and of all flesh, Who hast trampled down death and overthrown the Devil, and given life to Thy world, do Thou, the same Lord, give rest to the soul of Thy departed servant in a place of brightness, a place of refreshment, a place of repose, where all sickness, sighing, and sorrow have fled away. Pardon every transgression which she had committed, whether by word or deed or thought. For Thou art a good God and lovest mankind; because there is no man who lives yet does not sin, for Thou only art without sin, Thy righteousness is to all eternity, and Thy word is truth. For Thou are the Resurrection, the Life, and the Repose of Thy servants who have fallen asleep, O Christ our God, and unto Thee we ascribe glory, together with Thy Father, who is from everlasting, and Thine all-holy, good, and life-creating Spirit, now and ever unto ages of ages. Amen. Grant rest eternal in blessed repose, o Lord, to Thy departed servant, Beth, and make her memory to be eternal.
  3. I just called his wife and asked about him. She said, "He has a fractured disc." Fractured vertebra? Ruptured disc? Still, considering what happened, it could have been much worse.
  4. OK, now I can have the shakes. I tend to stay reasonably calm and together until things are dealt with, then have an attack of nerves. Schwab was able to remount and air up the tires (tyres for those who use UK spelling), truck drives fine. No broken axels. No warped rims. Nothing out of alignment. The guy who overtuned just before the tow truck got there for me asked to use my phone to call his wife. Number is still in the Calls Made section, I'll call him in a bit to check on him.
  5. It rained here Monday. A light mizzle this morning. I just hit the wrong spot on the ramp. The tow truck driver said that spot is always bad when it rains.
  6. Right now I'm sitting at a Les Schwab hoping that all they need to do is remount my passenger side tires. A little damp this morning. Hit the on ramp, lost traction, got sideways, went 180, smacked into the curb. I'm fine. Truck seems fine except for the tires. But I'm still waiting for them to look at it. While waiting for the tow I watched another half dozen people fishtail in the same place. About 5 minutes before the tow truck showed up I watched another pickup fishtail, get sideways, ended up on his side about 30 yards behind me. He's fine. Could have been a lot worse.
  7. Seems like they would have taken a role call of the passangers, or at the very least checked off the name on the manifest and given the searchers the name of the woman.
  8. Note in the painting above the blue flag on the right with an icon of Christ. To get picky here, the blue banner has one version of the Icon of the Protection of the Most Holy Theotokos. The large icon being carried is the Icon of Our Lady of Kazan (where the events in the above painting takes place). The icon on the banner of your troops: My 15mm Moscovy Militia battalion has a very similar flag with an icon of Christ. For some reason, the Moscovy's always fight above their lowly militia rating. appears to be the Icon Made Without Hands (also known as The Holy Napkin and The Icon of Edessa).
  9. You hit the ones I grew up with. I'll add, Santa Rosa Ave, in Santa Rosa CA. E. Cotati Ave. Cotati CA. Petaluma Blvd. Petaluma CA. Novato Blvd. Novato CA.
  10. Before Borodino: Still a common practice. (OK, these in the image below are Georgians, not Russians - don't be so picky) But it looks like the Moscow Patriarchate is looking at stopping the practice of blessing anything above the personal weapon level.
  11. Well, in the image in the OP the gun is black, has a scope, and a silencer, so it is obviously an assault rifle.
  12. Likely leftover from when he was a Boy Scout.
  13. Yes, Priests Air-Bombed a Russian City With Holy Water to Stop All the “Drinking” and “Fornication” How dare the writer call an Antonov An-2 "rickety!"
  14. Guy Gabaldon, Corporal USMC https://valor.militarytimes.com/hero/8227
  15. In other words, other than being at a range, pretty much realistic conditions for a DGU - bad lights, fast shooting, and your Mk. 1 eyeball. When my wife worked at a LGS/indoor range I could sometimes use the range that was used mostly for police training and qualifications, and for one of the shooting clubs to do some IDPA type stuff. Since I was the only one on the range I could go in front of the usual firing line. I'd hang a target, turn my back on it, set a timer and spend the time blindly running the target forward and back so I didn't know how close it was. When the timer went off turn, draw and fire. Best I could do on my own. I found that I was usually point shooting. One time I found myself with the muzzle about an inch from the target.
