Doesn't look like we did all that much damage except to Chitose. Bummer.


The St Louis seems to have more firepower in World of Warships...did you pack the wrong one? ;-)

JJ raids Rekata Bay with 38 Bettys but they don't hit anything.
Literally. They have crappy intel, I imagine.

Aside from the minor annoyance of losing a DM, an AMC, and AK and an AP it's going pretty well.

No turn in the inbox? Done putting up supports for the peas and tomatoes?

Just go back inside and make pancakes.

Mr. witpqs with the very attractive monkey face has correctly identified the category. Number 2 is CORRECT!

Number 1 is a reasonable guess but it is INCORRECT.

Hint: That is not a strait at the NE corner of Number 1 but rather an isthmus that suffered a catastrophic rupture when the chief cartographer was cleaning up the coastline by eating small, unintended pancake irregularities.

Most of the P-39's finally reached Adelaide after retracing the route of Ernest Shackleton

We have fighters at Portland now and a decent force at Melbourne.

Some of those Commonwealth Brigades are low on experience and can only get mediocre leaders, so I figure your 5 brigades is really worth two Japanese Brigades.

Good! I saw the brown colour and figured them for African/Indian/Ghurkha units. Hope your Aussies have the 25 pounder JJ pounders!

The Brownies are the "famed" 132nd Brigade of 44 Div. The Aussie regular units have better kit than 44 Div.

They were not treated kindly by the developers of AE

With the whole gluten-free thing and the silly GMO-free thing I am writing a diet cook book that will consist of non GMO, gluten-free foods all fried in duck fat.

I'm thinking "The Duck Fat Diet". I already have a great one for duck fat fries with bits of garlic and truffle salt.

I'm waiting for the next gathering where someone has out bottled water. I plan to separate them into two groups and put a note in front of one group "Gluten Free".
