Jingle Hell

There was a bit of drama over the holiday here as both my father and grandmother ended up in the hospital. My father has a hernia that will be operated on in January and we finally found out what has been causing my grandmothers issues. It's an auto immune disease similar to Lupus. She's being treated for that now and for the first time in months is walking! Both were major scares but both turned out surprisingly well.

Which is good because...
It's now Christmas season at UPS.
It's exam and term paper season at ODU.

With 3 remaining papers due and a start time at work approaching midnight it's getting hectic. I keep telling myself there will be cake at the end of this month.


Delisheus cake presented by the girls from K-On! vol3  Another review I haven't finished.

But looking at the piles of reference materials by day and the cardboard tsunami every morning I'm beginning to fear that this song may be more representative of what is to come....

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope that those of you in the States and Territories of the United States have a Happy Thanksgiving holiday and that everyone else has a pleasant day.  Remember, that today is not just about the turkey, it's also about perspective. Whatever curve-balls life throws at us there is still much to be thankful for.

This is particularly true those of us that were not present at the Pinedale Shopping Mall on October 30, 1978.

Why Today?

A week or two ago #OCCUPYSQUALOR announced that today would be their day of action. The eviction yesterday and multiple arrests seems to have neutered their plans a bit, but why did they chose today of all days. Why did it have to be today when they knew an eviction was coming?

Cdr Salamander knows.

Just be very glad September has passed.

EXACTO

EXACTO is a guided a missile intended to be launched from guns and be interchaingable with existing ordinance increasing weapon accuracy and reducing the chance of collateral damage.. This is not at first blush in any way unusual. However, the guns in question are not 155mm weapons nor 105's.
EXACTO is to be launched from 12.7mm barrels.
No that decimal did not slip.

Fifty.
Caliber.
Guided.
Missile. 


Wow!

There is more here, here and here.
