    RE: The Tanker's Lounge

    Stince:

    Glad the silly flat-tail dinna get completely flattened. Many places that have highways that cross habitats are now putting up fences along a stretch, and then put a culvert orthree UNDER the roadbed to act as an animal-underpass. I don't know how effective it is, but I think locally, they could use a few. Ottawa traffic reports ~still~ have warnings about accidents where someone has hit a moose, deer, or even an errant cow or horse (the horses tend to be rare, as they ain't as dumb).

    The most common 'roadkill' around here is the groundhog, with about as many skunks as raccoons, and the odd squirrel as well. I've seen a few pets too (cats/dogs) which is a shame, if you care about your pet, leaving him/her loose to get hit is a crime.

    That second one is just... *wince* Gotta send it to my nephew, he has a bulldog thats dumb as a post. Shreds and eats his stuffed toys. Even my siamese ain't that dumb (she's goin' on 16 years now)

    Gonna send the links to family, they'll all get a laugh.

    PS: don't forget Red Fridays to support our Troops (even if its just a red tee-shirt, scarf, or whatever, hokay?)
    You may not support the politicians that sent 'em, but support the troops: If ya don't stand behind 'em, you're ~completely~ welcome to stand in FRONT of 'em, eh?

    RE: The Tanker's Lounge

    Went to the beach to dig "Razor Clams" this past week end.You are allowed 15 clams per digger per tideon the evenning tide "night digging with a lite" when it's open to dig clams.This is usually a two or three day dig and a couple of times a month during the spring and fall clam digging seasons.I have been digging these clams for more than fifty years now and back in the 50"s and 60"s it was legal to dig 24 clams per person every day of the year.To keep the story short,in the 70's because so many people started digging these clams they were allmost wiped out so it was shut down compleetly for several years to allow the clams to recover and then opened several days a month during spring and fall months to control the amount of razor clams taken at any one time.

    It is not uncommon for the long beach washington dig to have 20 to 30 thousand people on the beach digging clams on one tide.Take the number of people times 15 clams each and you will see it is a vast number of these clams taken on just one days dig.

    The long beach peninsula is a sand beach about 23 miles long and most of it being open to dig clams on.It is a driveable beach and is considered a state highway with a speed limit of 25 MPH.

    "Lewis" of the "Lewis & Clark" expidition and some of the other members stood on this very beach over 200 years ago near the current little beach town of "Longbeach Washington).

    These Clams are found on the beaches of (northern Oregon,all of Washington,and a lot of Alaskian beaches ).Not sure about Canada,but would think they would have them also.?

    These are some great eating clams-Pan fried-Whip a couple of eggs and dip them in the eggs and roll them in cracker crumbs and a little flour-into a hot frying pan untill golden brown on each sideYou cook them hot and fastand some of the best eating i can think of.

    Tanque:

    Oy... wonder how close he was to bellying-in when he just cleared that edge before he entered " the Crack ". It ~looked~ like under 10 feet easily... and at the speed he was goin, if he dinna keep his head up, ~instant~ busted neck. Even if he did, he'd need a solid belly plate to survive the 'scrape'...

    Bet he ends up doin' stunt wing-suiting for the movies... he's in IMDb, but never as a stunt-man. With stuff like that, bet they snap him up for at LEAST one Bond movie, surprised they haven't gotten him in for the new " IM4: Ghost Protocol " movie...

    I found this on Goggle Earth... it seems the desert holds on to old scars.

    I have been reading up on the 21st panzer division, and the Afrika Korps so I went to El Alamein on Goggle Earth to see what I could see. The lat and lon for each picture is at the bottom.

    The plan is to visit each major WW2 tank battle site this way to see what I can see... cheaper than airfare.

    RE: The Tanker's Lounge

    BigMig,
    Can you post the site? I have been into trains most of my life, but due to a military carrer, never had anything but a small teat track to run my stuff on. When we bought my current house, That I eventually retired from the Amy in. My wife promised one of the kids bedrooms when they moved out. Well when that happened I was deep into tanks and put off starting a layput. Now the two spare bedrooms are a guest bedroom and my wife's sewing room.. OHH well, I guess it's true, " You snooze, You lose " LOL. I'll look for your pics.

    Hello 1sqt,
    Been a member here for several years and still have all my tanks,but i'm back working on my train layout now.Belong to two forums,this one and hobby havoc.They have a section for trains and i'm posting my layout there.It's nothing fancy (but is a little different than most layouts you will see.) and they provide an area for those who like the trains.All you have to do is type in.....hobby havoc rc tanks=index.....and you will find it.A lot of the older members that you don't see here very often now were also members there.

    My Panther wheels are finally completed and painted!!! Now, installing the rubber and gettin' them on da tank.

    You cannot believe how many social functions I passed on to get these finished. So, once it's up and running it will be off the workbench very soon!

    Sorry, don't have much else to talk about these days.

    Pics? PICS?!? Nah, don't do them anymore. At least not in stages like before.

    I'll wait 'till the whole tank is finished and show it with one maybe two pictures, that way all the off-topic threads can rise to the top and take control of this forum.

    RE: The Tanker's Lounge

    You would never have guessed?

    Captain Kangaroo passed away on January 23, 2004 at age 76 , which is odd, because he always looked to be 76. (DOB: 6/27/27 ) His death reminded me of the following story. Some people have been a bit offended that the actor, Lee Marvin, is buried in a grave alongside 3 and 4-star generals at Arlington National Cemetery His marker gives his name, rank (PVT) and service (USMC). Nothing else. Here's a guy who was only a famous movie star who served his time, why the heck does he rate burial with these guys? Well, following is the amazing answer: I always liked Lee Marvin, but didn't know the extent of his Corps experiences. In a time when many Hollywood stars served their country in the armed forces often in rear echelon posts where they were carefully protected, only to be trotted out to perform for the cameras in war bond promotions, Lee Marvin was a genuine hero. He won the Navy Cross at Iwo Jima There is only one higher Naval award... the Medal Of Honor!
    If that is a surprising comment on the true character of the man, he credits his sergeant with an even greater show of bravery.
    Dialog from "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson": His guest was Lee Marvin... Johnny said, "Lee, I'll bet a lot of people are unaware that you were a Marine in the initial landing at Iwo Jima ..and that during the course of that action you earned the Navy Cross and were severely wounded." "Yeah, yeah... I got shot square in the bottom and they gave me the Cross for securing a hot spot about halfway up Suribachi. Bad thing about getting shot up on a mountain is guys getting shot hauling you down. But, Johnny, at Iwo, I served under the bravest man I ever knew... We both got the Cross the same day, but what he did for his Cross made mine look cheap in comparison. That dumb guy actually stood up on Red beach and directed his troops to move forward and get the hell off the beach.. Bullets flying by, with mortar rounds landing everywhere and he stood there as the main target of gunfire so that he could get his men to safety. He did this on more than one occasion because his men's safety was more important than his own life.
    That Sergeant and I have been lifelong friends. When they brought me off Suribachi we passed the Sergeant and he lit a smoke and passed it to me, lying on my belly on the litter and said, "Where'd they get you Lee?" "Well Bob.... if you make it home before me, tell Mom to sell the outhouse!"

    Johnny, I'm not lying, Sergeant Keeshan was the bravest man I ever knew.
    The Sergeant's name is Bob Keeshan. You and the world know him as Captain Kangaroo."


    On another note,
    there was this wimpy little man (who passed away) on PBS, gentle and quiet. Mr. Rogers is another of those you would least suspect of being anything but what he now portrays to our youth. But Mr. Rogers was a U.S. Navy Seal, combat-proven in Vietnam with over twenty-five confirmed kills to his name. He wore a long-sleeved sweater on TV, to cover the many tattoos on his forearm and biceps. He was a master in small arms and hand-to-hand combat, able to disarm or kill in a heartbeat.

    After the war Mr. Rogers became an ordained Presbyterian minister and therefore a pacifist. Vowing to never harm another human and also dedicating the rest of his life to trying to help lead children on the right path in life... He hid away the tattoos and his past life and won our hearts with his quiet wit and charm.

    What a weird world we live in!!!

    If you find yourself in a fair fight, you did not plan your mission properly.

    Unfortunately it's all urban myth, Lee Marvin was wounded at Saipan, Bob Keeshan joined the marines to late to serve in combat and Fred Rogers never served in the military.
