Nuclear Bomb in Burma?????????????????

It is hard to picture the Burma I was familiar with in the early 60s as working on or having a nuclear bomb.  We - the U.S. Army - didn't go to Burma, that was against the rules, as the generals didn't like America - or anyone else - messing about in their country. This of course didn't stop the Chinese Third Army from having elements in Burma.

A lot of these people there, while many were very nice and friendly, were also culturally backwards. They are country, with country underlined.

The above pic of a "nuclear tunnel" was copied from Fox News online.

Auto Break In

Auto break in:  Hole punched under lock.  No alarm set-off.  If GPS is in auto, thief can get home address of victim.  Now knows what victim's car looks like and can get good indication if victim is home, in case of home invasion or burglary.

Watch everything.  Have fun and be safe.

A bird by any other name

"WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama's advisers will remove religious terms such as "Islamic extremism" from the central document outlining the U.S. national security strategy and will use the rewritten document to emphasize that the United States does not view Muslim nations through the lens of terror, counterterrorism officials said.
"The change is a significant shift in the National Security Strategy, a document that previously outlined the Bush Doctrine of preventative war and currently states: 'The struggle against militant Islamic radicalism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century.' "
God forbid we should call Islamic extremists by that name, or any other but the most worshipful and friendly label.  We should not play upon the murders of thousands of Americans in such a shameful manner.  After all, it might anger and/or embarrass them.  We most certainly wouldn't want to annoy those who dance in the street when our fellow countrymen are slaughtered.

Tell the families of the victims that water boarding is "cruel and unusual."
Is leaping from a burning building and then crashing into the sidewalk cruel and unusual?

Photos of Children

Lots of people blog with photos of their children.  This is best I can do.  One day I'll put up a pic of step-son and his lovely wife.  For now, you get Mommy Cat, Peanut and Goldy - in the den of the Manse Wo.
