  1. I agree, can't watch most news what ya need to be able to sit through the so called evening news is a really good set of Buzz word bingo cards. thank goodness i can also record and skim it
  2. Does this mean interstate travel is banned? I go to a butcher shop and farmer market out in Penn now and again is that still called grocery shopping ? or will I run into a problem with various leo's?
  3. There's gravy, then there's brown gravy. correct, one grandma called gravy tomato gravy one grandma called it gravy as well beef, chicken, turkey, cream etc. all are good in their place
  4. Sorry to hear that... Tim Thank You. regarding the hospital license request, you know you have been visiting too long when they recognize you and don't ask you for the pass to enter sicu . The registration desk also recognize you and you get the pass as it saves money for the valet parking... hate new brunswick parking
  5. I was visiting my dad in the hospital last year before he passed, they asked for my drivers license - I asked why, she said it was policy. Tim Went through the same kind of nonsense last year where my brother passed away from from cancer at rwj no bargain parking in new brunswick either
  6. Have the Henry frontier in 22lr and a mares leg 38/357 accurate enough for me and fun to shoot. recoil is almost non existent thinking about one in 45/70.
  7. Interesting read
  8. will pray for him Wishing the best lost a brother to cancer last year
  9. 65 Mustang 65 Corvair both just plain fun to drive
  10. I inherited a t/c Hawken kit gun from the 70s my fil built Never felt the need to load more than 70 gr of either 2fg or 3fg black powder. mostly use 50 to 60 gr shoots fine , Agree with other folks you cannot put off cleaning , must be done when finished shooting for the day. I was told by Dixons, out in pa. that the 45 cal. is essentially a break point on powder grain smaller bore use 3fg larger bore use 2fg. either can be used in a .45 the above are my opinions and what I use
  11. funny, didn't see any of this on the evening news Chicago- homicides 293 so far this year. 326 last year. In the past 365 days those homicides due to guns 314 people. Maybe madam Representative should look for solutions to this problem first instead of looking to label an organization of law abiding citizens as criminals.
  12. sounds about right to me
  13. reborn found this to be very interesting For only the second time in U.S. Air Force history, the service has brought a B-52H Stratofortress bomber out of storage Boneyard at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona and delivered it to an operational unit. The aircraft, with the serial number 60-0034 and nicknamed Wise Guy, touched down at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana earlier today, where it will join the 307th Bomb Wing, the only bomb wing in the Air Force Reserve. Wise Guy's return comes almost three years to the day after another one of the bombers crashed and burned at Andersen Air Force Base in Guam and brings the size of the Air Force's operational B-52H fleet back to a total of 76 aircraft, the maximum allowable number under the terms of an arms control treaty with Russia. U.S. Air Force Colonel Robert Burgess, the commander of the 307th Bomb Wing's 307th Operations Group, flew Wise Guy, with the help of two additional members of the unit, from Arizona to Lousiana on May 14, 2019. The plane arrived still wearing the "MT" tail code of aircraft assigned to Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota, which it was wearing when the 5th Bomb Wing first sent it to the Bone Yard in 2008. The bomber is also in desperate need of a new coat of paint and in the fall the plane is scheduled to go to the depot at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma for a full overhaul. "We are excited about the wing’s role in bringing this jet back into service," Burgess told reporters after arriving at Barksdale. "Its return is a testament to the skill of our Airmen in restoring the bomber for regular use in the Air Force." The Air Force only revealed that it was in the process of "regenerating" Wise Guy in April 2019, but it is unclear if that's when the process actually began. The 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG), which oversees the bone yard, has only ever done this once before and the last time it took 70 days. That B-52H, serial number 61-0007 and carrying the nickname Ghost Rider, returned to the active duty 2nd Bomb Wing, also situated at Barksdale, in February 2015. That plane had replaced another B-52H that ended up being totaled after an electrical fire broke out during routine maintenance the year before. Under the terms of the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, or New START, with Russia, the United States is limited to a fixed number of deployed nuclear weapon systems as defined under the terms of that deal. You can read more about those details here, but the mix of systems the U.S. military has elected to field in order to preserve its Nuclear Triad includes 76 B-52H bombers. The United States cannot, by treaty, have any more of these aircraft operational without sacrificing something else. The arms control deal does, however, allow for a number of non-deployed systems to remain in storage, primarily, as is the case with Wise Guy, to replace losses. As of April 15, 2019, the Air Force still had a dozen other B-52Hs in what is known as Type 1000 storage, which is the readiest state for an inactive aircraft. But even planes in Type 1000 storage need significant work to get them flying again. In Ghost Rider's case, personnel at the bone yard had previously ripped out its GPS receiver and other navigation equipment for use on other operational B-52s, so these systems had to get replaced. Ghost Rider also needed a substantial overhaul to bring the bomber up to the latest baseline configuration, as it had missed various upgrades while in storage. Wise Guy will need the same treatment, having been out of service for more than a decade. When the 5th Bomb Wing sent Wise Guy to the Bone Yard in 2008, it seems that the personnel from the unit may have a nagging feeling in the back of their minds that the bomber might not be done with its service just yet. Someone left a note on a panel inside the plane that reads as follows: "AMARG, this 60-034, a Cold Warrior that stood sentinel over America from the darkest days of the Cold War to the global fight against terror. Take good care of her... Until we need her again." It may be of interest to note that the "60" in Wise Guy's serial number is the fiscal year in which the Air Force bought her. The very last of the B-52Hs rolled off Boeing's production line in 1962, putting the plane in the latter half of the BUFF's production run. The service expects to continue flying these bombers through at least 2050—and probably beyond—and has plans to make even more significant upgrades to them in the coming years, including the addition of new engines and radars. It appears that Wise Guy has indeed refused to fade away and the bomber now looks set to return to service and stay there for decades to come. mods. if link is not allowed please remove https://www.thedrive.***/the-war-zone/28015/a-b-52h-nicknamed-wise-guy-becomes-the-second-to-ever-come-back-from-the-bone-yard
