  1. Watch it on Youtube - you will see that this is from 2011. https://www.aopa.org/news-and-media/all-news/2019/april/24/pilot-killed-in-crash-of-vintage-flying-wing-airplane https://www.google.com/search?q=restored+flying+wing+crash&oq=restored+flying+wing+crash&aqs=chrome..69i57j33l5.10902j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  2. I really like ours. After the Tubbs Fire in 2017 we bugged out, and like a good little boy I turned off the gas. Got home, and, again being a good little boy, called PG&E to get the gas turned back on. After all, the Powers That Be told us to have the professionals turn it back on. This was something like 12 October. Got told that it wouldn't happen until 31 October. OK, pain in the butt, but HEY! we have electricity. Used the Instant Pot to heat water, then put our big crock pot in the bathroom and filled it with hot water and set it on Warm. Used that for bathing. Our ancestors made due with sponge baths, wouldn't kill us. Used the Instant Pot for all our cooking. After about four days of that Lisa said, "Can you turn the gas back on?" In a flash I was out the door and slowly turned on the gas. Then checked all the pilots. A few hours later we were celebrating with hot showers and fresh baked bread. The next day Lisa called PG&E to cancel the appointment for the 31st. The person she talked with was shocked that we had been told the 31st because our area was one that was supposed to be expidited for stuff like that. One of their guys came out the day after that, she told him I had turned it back on. He was skeptical (not that it is all that hard to do) until she told him I used to be a handyman. Then he did a pro forma check, and pronounced it Good. Only thing was he turned the water heater back down to about 105 F, which I guess is the standard anymore. I found that out when I tried to shower after running a load of laundry. "Why is there no hot water?" Went out and checked - yep, way the heck down. I cranked it back up. Now we can do laundry, run the dishwasher, AND shower and still have hot water.
  3. I was thinking Palmdale, but then got to wondering if it was "near" Palmdale. In that neck of the woods that means about 25 to 30 miles. At least according to my uncle who had a place up in Jackass Gul...ah..Jawbone Canyon.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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).
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Well, in the image in the OP the gun is black, has a scope, and a silencer, so it is obviously an assault rifle.
