  1. Last I read on that (yesterday) there has not yet been a link established. Power was off something like 12 minutes before they found him. From what his sister said, the guy was hard pressed to walk to the head. Could be that he would have died then anyway. Or maybe all the speculation, warnings, and buildup for a week before took its toll and killed him. I know that a lot has been made of this in the press and social media, but until we have a coroner's report I'm not willing to say that it was the fault of PG&E.
  2. Planned power outages this past week. I also saw in the news that SDG&E is thinking about the same kind of Public Safety Power Outages.
  3. https://www.nbc4i.com/news/u-s-world/happy-244th-birthday-u-s-navy/
  4. "four tons of explosive fuses and flash powder." One of the links mentioned 35 and 50 pound cases of powder.
  5. The Saloon, rich with Cultural Education.
  6. I thought it was hakkaa päälle that was the general purpose phrase.
  7. Ever wonder why they have barcodes on their ships? So when they return to port they can Scan da Navy in! Thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week. Try the veal cabbage rolls.

  9. Yes, there had been a bill that was so poorly written that any block of aluminum big enough to be milled into a receiver WAS in fact a "firearm." On the other hand, https://www.mercurynews.com/2019/10/12/a-california-man-sold-illegal-ar-15s-feds-agreed-to-let-him-go-free-to-avoid-hurting-gun-control-efforts/ The judge shouldn't have allowed the charges to be dropped.
  10. Hey, Bottles! Give Bob there a Flashback DRINK TYPE: COCKTAIL INGREDIENTS 3 oz. Vodka 5 oz. Gatorade (Preferably fruit flavoured) Ginger Ale INSTRUCTIONS Mix the vodka and the Gatorade in a collins glass, then fill with Ginger Ale. Serve on ice.
  11. Thanks for that classic. Shows how convoluted family relationships can get. I once attended a double wedding - widow and widower were getting married, and his son was marrying her daughter. My dad, the youngest of 11, had a nephew that was only a year younger than he was. Weird hearing him call my dad "Uncle."
  12. Bombing a small island - has to drop over water so the forward momentum will carry the ordnance to the land.
  13. Someone should point out to them the treatment of women, especially elderly women, by many of the "indigenous peoples." And their peaceful religous practices.
  14. A cowboy rode into town and stopped at the saloon for a drink. Unfortunately, the locals always had the habit of picking on strangers, which he was. When he finished his drink, He found his horse had been stolen. He went back into the bar, handily flipped his gun into the air, caught it above his head without even looking and fired a shot into the ceiling. "Which one of you sidewinders stole my horse?!?!?!" he yelled with surprising forcefulness. No one answered. "Alright, I'm gonna have another beer, and if my horse ain't back outside by the time I finish, I'm gonna do what I dun in Texas! And I don't like to have to do what I dun in Texas!" Some of the locals shifted restlessly. The man, true to his word, had another beer, walked outside, and his horse had been returned to the post. He saddled up and started to ride out of town. The bartender wandered out of the bar and asked, "Say pardner, before you go...what happened in Texas?" The cowboy turned back and said, "I had to walk home."
  15. Blast from Florida's largest explosives seizure surprises even military experts http://www.fox13news.com/news/local-news/feds-blew-up-7-700-pounds-of-explosives-hoarded-by-convicted-sarasota-man
  16. Well, maybe the writer is very old school. After all, gonnes were also known as "bombards." And to bombard someone or something is to attack with artillery or bombers. Mortar shells are also called mortar bombs. It can sort of make sense. On the other hand, like as not the writer doesn't know a hawk from a handsaw.
  17. Eastern Utah Tourism and History Association · October 11, 2015 · Edited · The ranch houses at Preston Nutter's Ranch in Nine Mile Canyon after it was purchased from Mrs. Pete Francis. The often times overly packed Vernal Stage that ran from Price to Myton and on to Vernal. Dave Russell was a stage driver. Preston Nutter on his trademark mule (right). He never rode a horse.
