I read Ken’s blog: http://buckoclown.blogspot.com/ , he is an engineer in the nuclear field and always seems to dig up the latest in technology. Yesterday it was a new design of the airplane.
I also have a Cousin, Ken Herron, an engineer, and writes a column in Calhoun, GA. Today he shocked me with the news that diesel is the most expensive fuel to produce. I always thought it was cheaper. There was a lot of technology in his column today about diesel fuel. He states that there are now more vehicles fueled by diesel in Europe, than gasoline. Cars there, getting 50 mpg and lasting forever (as diesel engines seem to do).
They are not allowed into the USA because of our commitment to steer away from fossil fuels and go to electric power.
Something else new to me. I have used Google earth to see where my friends live and see areas where I am not allowed to drive (BTW, I am still searching for Jimmy’s AREA 51). Now, another friend, Jim Page, has sent me this address:
(If you click the address above and type in your address you will see your house. (It will cycle thru a few address before it gets there, but it will). You will also see what your neighbor is hiding behind that fence! BTW, it is supposed to be world wide)
It is more up to date than any surveillance map I have seen yet.
That is our house, rented by our son Mark, with the gray roof. the white is our RV & carports. You can see the amount of asphalt we laid. The picture does not, of course show the latest storage shed, haha.
Anyway today was a day for learning something new. I will look at a few more addresses.
Amazing the information that is available on this internet!!! I have gone to GITMO and Bagdad, via satellite. Wow, I just visited pier 12 in Norfolk where the USS Independence (CVA-62) was homeported (I lived on the Indy for a couple years.)
The Indy is in mothballs, Pier 12 now services the USS Harry Truman (CVN75) lower, and the USS George HW Bush (CVN77) upper, our normal berth for the Indy.
Is this amazing or what?
Thanks for coming by the log.
It is nice here in the Mountains (our picture window)
Car of the day:
