Downed power lines are DANGEROUS. DONT TOUCH. CALL EDISON RIGHT AWAY!

First of all. Edison is dead. For a long time too. Also, he's not going to take a call from some schmo off the street. Maybe if you lie and say you are Henry Ford or something, but he's dead too.


Then there is the putative educational message. Does ANYBODY not know that power lines are dangerous? Even if there is someoen who doesn't know yet what do you think is the chance of them being able to read the sign?

Not only has Haruna got away, she is not even spotted. The PBY squadron at San Jose has a serious morale problem but 8 birds are still operational. The fighter squadrons are still in good shape. Ground losses were seriously overstated but the runway is at 44% damage. We need to get Denver out of there.

Cagayan now has adequate supply. Big swarm of transports approaching Jolo and Cagayan. Our boys marching on Davao are 1 day out. They arrive tomorrow, attack the day after that.

Forgot to mention that some Sallys attacked our ships at Luganville but were scared off by our snazzy P-43's. Maybe if we build up Ndeni or even land on one of the Solomons they will send more stuff down there.

Influenza has arrived in California. I just throw my clothes in the fireplace when I get home, well most of them. Genetech, which makes Tamiflu, failed to make enough of the suspension for children this year. There is no generic. Their drug is vastly superior to the old stuff, it's quite expensive and people will sell their government supplied flat screens of stolen I-phones to get it but the pharmacies dont have enough avialable. Evidently Genentech have (note cool but erroneous Engrish use of 3rd person plural verb conjugation) some problem with making money.

What they need is a suppry officer.

Roche is the parent company of Genentech. Roche has been making Tamiflu for years. I wonder why they stuck Genentech with the surge supply demand / bad rap?

Anyways, any sort of suppry chain management post 2009 (H1N1 pandemic) that didn't have sufficient suppry of product on hand for another stiff seasonal challenge = corporate incompetence. Heck, the shelf life of the tablet is 5+ years, how could their shelves be bare?

Unless, of course, our infinitely wise public health system in this country is trying to get corporate suppliers to provide their product for free or at a loss. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if this was the cause of the shortage.

It isn't really a fine - it's the fee they pay the fire cleanup company when they come to sweep up the carbon lumps and ashes. So they are really stiffing Corporate America, the Commie bums!

Mid 1982 .. Fort Bragg in North Carolina hired contractors to rebuild the baracks starting with the support companies on "Smoke Bomb Hill". Contractor Boss gets brillant idea to move 30' high scaffolding by rolling it on rubber wheels. As the scaffolding hit the sidewalk 13,500 volts arced to the scaffold. The Boss and three workers instantly were electrocuted.

I arrive on scene to note the scaffolding rubber wheels on fire, 3 individuals on fire and one taking an arc from the scaffold at a distance of about 18", chaging up and then discharging little briquetts from his body. I call DFAAE to shut off the power on Gruber road, and get informed that everybody is at lunch .. this scene continues for about 90 minutes until the workers come shut off the power. Fort Bragg was an open base at the time, so the news monitored radio traffic and of course broadcast the facts of the accident where as a girlfriend shows up and has to be restained so she does not follow suit with her now dead boy friend.

It took me about 45 minutes to get all the briquettes into the body bags. There are declared dead at Cape Fear Regional Medcal Center.

The contractors lost the contract as the public embarresment and the news of how this happend was too much for the political folks.

Yet people still touch metal poles, antenna, cranes, etc on to power lines ... somehow the lesson gets relearned every year ..

Uggh...that is ghastly.



I was out at Kelso Dunes in the Mojave with my kids when they were about 13 and 9. We parked and started the half mile walk to the massive dunes. We were almost there when a very fast moving storm front, maybe 30-50 mph pace of advance, began to close in. We stop. I order a retreat. Lightning starts...maybe 3-4 miles away and then the strikes start coming every 10 seconds or so. Flash from behind you, then thunder.

As if it wasn't obvious. "Run to the car! Fast!" Everyone on the dunes has recognized the danger and now you can hear screaming and warnings. I decide we are too big a dipole..."spread out!" We are now about 200 yds away from the car and it looks like we can make it so I shelve the idea of us lying flat on the ground and hoping it hits some of the other people instead...nice..eh? Now it starts to rain hard...we make it. There is a guy about 100 ft from us standing on the roof of his high clearance jeep balancing himself with a big whip antenna sicking up about 10 ft above him yelling for his family to hurry up so they can see him get electrocuted.

It scared the hory crap out of my kids. Honestly, I was scared too. Nobody got hit, even the guy on the jeep.

******************March 11, 1943(c)****************

North of Taytay somewhere: Skipjack has a shot at Soryu. It seems like it is too fast for the carriers to have gone to Cam Ran Bay, taken on fuel and replacement aircraft, put the new rubber bands on the aircraft and be back. Don' tell me they have two taffys? Of course, they could have just doubled back instead of going to port. Most likely we are dealing with Kaga and Soryu even though it seems like we sank Soryu three times already..

Probably at least 4 weeks until Yorktown is fully repaired and up to Darwin. It would be crazy to take on two LYB carriers with Wasp. Just as well, all the ground troops for the Northern Luzon need abut 40 more days of prep.

Tentative additions to plan.

1) Take some isrands on Eastern shore of Luzon to suggest approach there.

2) Land at Legaspi about a week before the Northern Luzon landing to draws JJ forces southward. They might have to be "fungible" though.

3) Probable landing at Batan Is (North of Luzon) at same time of main Luzon landing.

Time now for advance by airdrop/fast transport taffy/landing craft...and for consolidation/buildup of airfields....and for capture of Manado.

Also, it now appears the Ramree Is op will go in ahead of the Northern Luzon landings. I guess it depends on Vicky. She must be an awesome typist..or have really nice legs.

Good, maybe JJ will move some of their **** over there.

Dude...you'd better reconsider the pace of this ground assault. Considering the small 'bitsa' units you're throwing at these islands (RCT or smaller). What ever happened to consolidating forward advances? Interior lines? "Striking emptyness with fullness" and other Sun Tzu mythical claptrap?

I think you're doing a fine job of bringing the fight to the enemy. Avoid overextension.

2) Land at Legaspi about a week before the Northern Luzon landing to draws JJ forces southward. They might have to be "fungible" though.

3) Probable landing at Batan Is (North of Luzon) at same time of main Luzon landing.

Time now for advance by airdrop/fast transport taffy/landing craft...and for consolidation/buildup of airfields....and for capture of Manado.


Dude...you'd better reconsider the pace of this ground assault. Considering the small 'bitsa' units you're throwing at these islands (RCT or smaller). What ever happened to consolidating forward advances? Interior lines? "Striking emptyness with fullness" and other Sun Tzu mythical claptrap?

I think you're doing a fine job of bringing the fight to the enemy. Avoid overextension.


Sun Tzu was a sissy boy.


Well, that's what I heard. Hard to have "interior lines" in the PI...rotsa watah. We are going to exterminate the Shinto Boys on Mindanao if they don't give up..which they won't. Manado is a real pain in the arse and needs to be lanced, no doubt about that. Kendari and Ambon and Dobo and the future walking dead at Broome and Port Hedrand can slowly starve.

Landing on Northern Luzon is penciled for 3 divisions (1st Marine, British 2nd and Aus 7th plus arty and armor). There will lots of ponies and wagons and camp followers. US 45th ID should have captured Manado by then and can reconstitute. They and regimetns of 2nd Marine will constitute strategic reserve.

Why not both?





There is absolutely NOTHING worse than an "Ankle hollow"



Are you also advocating, as a physician, 'rubbing off your horny spots'? With pumice?
