Good morning all; we're back in our office building. I guess they (whoever they are) worked all weekend to install a generator. Now we wait for a new transformer to get delivered and installed. Just looked in the back parking lot and there are two big generators in a box growling away; one for the building and one for the datacenter.

It ain't the building of them that bothers me.

Its the nitwits that maintain and fly them, and the narrow minded souls who seek to remove them and their occupants from the skies.

Oh, and there is something about feeling like a sardine, crammed in a metal tube with a few hundred other sardines that I am not fond of.

I'd love to be wealthy enough to own my own jet, maybe one of these:



I would go lots of places then, even to your part of the world.

On my schedule.

And I would fly it myself.

I would even take you for a ride in it.

Zappa was a musical genius.
Saw him in Montreal many years ago; maybe the best concert I ever saw. Certainly the top five.

I saw two of them last week, one after the other, on an A road, both with the steering wheel on the wrong side.
I've heard that they're harder to find over there, so people are re-importing them in, though sometimes with the steering wheel on the wrong side.

When I was over for two weeks I only saw 4 Series vehicles:
A IIa pickup, a III station wagon, a IIa Lightweight, and a Series I.

I loved the way the large band would be shooting jazz out of a firehouse and then just stop....silence....and then crank right back into it with no visible signal. Magnificent musicianship and showmanship.

Good Morning!

We've recently switched to loose leaf tea (more environmentally friendly than tea bags), and I keep forgetting not to gulp down the last sip in the cup....

You need on of these:

Global 7500 | Bombardier Business Aircraft

Rumour has it, my cousin has one of these. I've never seen it.
I need one of those - long enough legs to get me to ZA in one hop, and a proper bed on board. Where can I get one? Ali Express?
