Umm, I thought you had that handled... Oh crap. Looks like I'm going to be on the phone for a while.


I actually got a phone call from my buddy he say as long as you don't blow anything up or try to move anything radioactive that weighs more than 500 lbs, and it marked with a red JR . He can make eye look the other way. The only catch is I might have promised him a box of Cubans finest. So if you could get me a box and put them on my tab.


A box for him, and two boxes for you sir. Thank you very much.

Kes, that one was just for show anyway. There are still some systems and such that we haven't showed you yet... And probably won't until your mechanical skills improve quite a bit. We still occasionally use that one when doing service to the other systems though, so you can learn how to fix it. Have fun!

Perhaps Kes should work with some R717 for awhile. One whiff of that stuff and maybe he will be a little more careful when working on refer systems and try not to vent so much. On another note after reading around forum today I could use a place to hang out for a bit and a nice cup of joe sounds good.

BT, you are welcome to hang out here anytime you like. We have a strict rule against feelings, that I enforce on myself too. We make exceptions for great personal loss (death of a loved one, or something like that), or real life stress if you need a place to vent, but that's just about it. The rest of the baloney stays outside, and whatever is going on here basically stays inside. So, yea, you're in the right place.

I'm sure you've had this conversation with others here, but I've got to ask, how long were you on a sub? That's some serious life in a bubble. I know those things can remain submerged for a long friggin time too... There is a lot I don't know about those things, or ships for that matter also. In another life, I think I would maybe have enjoyed working on a ship... Although big waves and drowning scare the crap out of me.

Longest period I spent at sea with no port call was 120 days and 95 of those were submerged. Went to sea anywhere from a day or two to months at a time. I spent 9 years in the Navy. I rode 4 different boats poking holes in both the Pacfic and Atlantic. I picked subs cause I too was prone to seasickness :sick: and hate big waves but I saw my share.

Do you just deal with it by accepting that you have a mission and nothing else, or does it get tough? Also, being so confined with other people for so long? How does one mentally adjust to spending a third of a year in a bubble? One of my wife's cousins was on a sub... He seemed to really have loved it. It must have some draw for some people.

Young and dumb I guess but yes I enjoyed it too. It was a job and it was fun playing hide and seek with the Russians. Oh the Cold War. Perhaps I am looking through rose colored glasses all these years later. Yes the mindset was its a job and as soon as we get it done the sooner we could get back to our other life. I imagine countless psych books and studies could be written. I have always been a bit of a loner so maybe we were all that way. Now those guys that jumped from planes into a war zone were the crazy ones.

The mentioned family member held a record on undetected tracking during that time. I can't say his life after the Navy was nearly as glamorous, but he was very very proud of that. I'm sure the cat and mouse game still goes on today.

Oh I think that may have been the Lapon. I have heard the story and I have gazed upon that boat in awe. She was a hot runner and we all strived for the same opportunity. Many did not and still do not understand but a feat like that was a thing to be proud of. Im sure the games continue as the Bear really never did go to sleep as neither have we.

If I ever get the chance, I'll ask. That guy used to live down here, and I used to see him every once in a while. Now he lives about 1300 miles from here, and I haven't seen him in years. We worked together on a construction job for a while to help out a mutual family member, and that's where he was telling me about it. He was a sonar man on the sub, and was proud of that. As he should have been.

In the mean time, it's a pleasure to talk with you also about it, and I appreciate your service.

Here we are, Saturday morning, rustic hotel in the backwoods of Sonoma County CA, wife is off on a half Ironman, and the girls and I are watching My Little Pony while finishing breakfast. Or rather, I am playing a little Dogfight and surfing the forum while they watch. MLP is a little young for my 12 yr old, but she loves horses and can't resist. The 9 yr old has TV face on, glassy eyes and mouth drooped open. Actually they both do. One of the reasons that TV is a 60mins per day thing for our family.

So on that note, a little survey. Do any of you parents limit TV for your kids? I never had a limit growing up in the 70's. So I am the product of waaayyy too much Gilligan, Three Stooges, and Mannix. I had my doubts about the 60min limit, but it's worked well so far, and the kids don't care too much to watch, even at friends' houses. They probably use the 60min a few times a week, and don't turn on the tube about half the days. I feel fortunate in the face of other stories I hear.

Hello lady and gentlemen.

I had a hot and steamy night with a barmaid here some months ago and haven't seen her around since, her name was RealTink, does anyone remember her or know of her whereabouts? She was beautiful :woohoo:

Yours sincerely,

CrazedDragon.

She ran off with some crazy guy... We do miss he though.

Manfred, we do attempt limits, but it's not too set in stone. I believe that they should watch less. If you add all that they watch in a day they probably average about 2-2.5 hours and I think that's too much... As I sit here on my phone... :/ My kids do love their TV a little too much though, so taking it away is a fairly effective form of discipline for some things.

My kids it's all computer and when it's nice out we make them go outside...sad thing is no other kids seem to be out there. Our place is the only one with hula hoops and scooters and bikes and skateboards it seems. Sad really...my kids of course throw boomerangs too ;)

I checked the DVR... Strangely enough, he brought his own bell! We'll put it in the skeet thrower later though. There is a nice 16 gauge in my office that I've been dying to shoot. The perfect trap gun! Maybe if I hit it, it will ring.
