That's "Hanky Panky" you're thinking of, not In-N-Out.

Adam Greenberg with a heartlifting at bat for the Miami Marlins. I still think the pitcher shoulda 'brushed him back'.

Oh well. Do you chaps have anything you'd like to see from the BBMF winter maintenance? Several of the fighters have had their front ends stripped ready for ground runs. The Hurricane in particular has a lot of panels removed up to the side of the cockpit. The Spit XIXs look bloody weird without their cowlings.

Why would they do all that, Dix? Seems as though stripping them (instead of covering them or moving them into a hangar) would be unnecessarily cumbersome.

They're in the hangar, it's one of the perks of this job. I get to work inside all year round

They get stripped (the panels taken off) to make various inspections easier. Control runs and pipework need to be checked so the more bits we can take off the easier it is to see them. The engine cowlings get taken off and the engines cleaned so that we can do a ground run and discover any leaks that we don't know about. Whilst we could do the inspects with the panels on, we'd be relying on boroscopes and other viewing aids. With the Hurricane you can see every control run from nose to tail easily, it's a bit trickier on the Spitfire though.

The paperwork for P7 is getting on for two inches thick, around 200 pages (of very small writing) worth of tasks. That paperwork just tells us what we need to do, we've then got shelves of books that tell us how we do those tasks. An interesting little fact is that several of the parts books for the MkXIX Spits are in Swedish.

Anyone here who could Photoshop a picture of me to 600x600 in a way that it fits for the greencard lottery?

Hey, how about those Oakland A's-AL West Champs!

Set an MLB record too-first time a team has come from 5+ games down with 9 games remaining in the season to win the pennant. Of course, Texas gets an assist for 3 costly errors in this game, but that's the way it goes, of course.

Here's hoping that the Yankees can get demoted to the wildcard and be one and done!

17° and I'm sitting on my balcony with coffee and a cigar.
in one week, I'm in Lisbon at this time. The week after it, I'm sitting on Mike's balcony at 25° (hopefully)
