Army-Navy Football 2014

May 26, 2015

Our branches of the military work always work closely together with an earned mutual respect and a strong desire that each succeeds beyond even their wildest dreams; well, except during two events… budget negotiations and sports! Each year, the service academies will meet on the gridiron to see which academy will win the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy, which by the way, I think was just something thrown in to make the Air Force feel like their games were important because the only game that really counts is the Navy-Army Game!

Currently, the Navy Midshipmen have a 12 game winning streak over the Army’s Black Knights.

In recent years, the services have brought the rivalry to the Internet with each service producing “Spirit Spots”. This year, I have produced my first one — yeah, I still need work improving my video skills, but here it is; GO NAVY! BEAT ARMY! (Read the rest of the article…)

A Sailor’s Prayer

August 16, 2014

Never in the history of the Navy has getting and staying in been more of a challenge. I read a tongue-in-cheek remake of “A Sailor’s Prayer” for the first time a few days ago that seemed apropos for that challenge.

The author is unknown.

Found the Stimulus!

August 17, 2014

Just returned from Las Vegas where we had the pleasure of attending the Milblog portion of BlogWorld 2010. More on the conference later, but on the way back from the conference, we stopped at the Grand Canyon, and we found where all that stimulus money must have went!

Email Spam Worth Publishing

June 15, 2009

I don’t normally do this, copy and paste something from an email into a blog post, but today I can’t help myself. I read these “jokes” and had to share them with everyone without spamming your inbox. Thank you Commander for forwarding them!


My wife sat down on the couch next to me as I was flipping channels.
She asked, ‘What’s on TV?’

I said, ‘Dust.’

And then the fight started…


My wife and I are watching “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” while we
were in bed. I turned to her and said,
“Do you want to have sex?”
“No,” she answered.
I then said, “Is that your final answer?” (Read the rest of the article…)

So I Called Up the Captain

November 15, 2014

The internet is a wonderful thing.

Just the other day I received a friend request on Facebook from a person I hadn’t seen or heard from in over 20 years. This isn’t some long lost high school friend (although I get those too), I am talking about a friend who is from another country I met while attending a NATO school on the Italian military base Borgo Piave in the middle of nowhere outside the town of Latina, Italy.

NATO SATCOM Classmates Latina, Italy

The school we classed up for would keep us there for about 3 months, the classes we attended prepared us for working on NATO’s satellite ground terminals. We arrived in May 1988, the class was made up of people from many NATO countries but five of us formed a bond I recall often and do cherish the memories.

They called the five of us the Beastie Boys. Three from the United Kingdom, one each from England, Wales and Scotland, one Canadian and myself.

Now We’re Talkin!

August 17, 2014

This Powerpoint presentation seems to have been making its way around the email world. I had a good friend send it to me, thought it was an actual invitation to a BBQ living in Memphis and all – I knew it wasn’t after the first couple of slides (Read the rest of the article…)

Smile – It is almost Christmas!

With Christmas quickly coming upon us and the economy in the tank I thought this series of Christmas cartoons might be just the thing to help bring a brighter smile to your face. The artist’s use of vivid colors and detail seem to bring the pictures to life. The picture I decided to showcase here depicts President-elect Obama appropriating the bailout money :)

The series I linked to is called the 12 days of Christmas, I look forward to seeing how he mixes current events with Santa and the elves. Who knows, maybe he will have Santa and his sleigh with a tailhook attempting to hit the 3rd wire, that would be cool.

On another note, Happy Cinco De-Drinko! It was 75 years ago today that the prohibition of alcohol in the United States was lifted – it should be a national holiday! (Read the rest of the article…)

Golf Clubs Grow On Trees

August 17, 2014

I enjoy playing the game of golf even though no matter how much effort I put into the game, my score never seems to improve. Took a few lessons over the years, no help. Practiced at the driving range, still no improvement. Wife tried to help by getting me a new set of Pings one year, equipment being the problem was ruled out. As a matter of fact, over the last 35 years of hacking away my score has hovered in the low 100’s and only occasionally will I “get in the 90’s”. The game can be frustrating to say the least.

Today proved to be no different. (Read the rest of the article…)
