Oct 25th 2011 6:36PM Yes, it still remains to be one of the most reliable jetliners today .I wish that more
of the stretched 200 series 727s were still flying as passenger planes. They
flew smoothly and efficiently and they always departed on time,right on schedule,
based on my own travels on those jetliners. Pilots did a great ,skillful job landing
that airliner despite the fact the front nose wheel gear doors would not open for
Oct 16th 2011 11:43AM I still think that our own US domestic airlines have been cutting back on food
in general . Not like it used to be.
Oct 11th 2011 9:00AM Would not surprise me that the bike rider was taking a moderate risk
if not a calculated risk by riding in the zone(s) in question. It would be
somewhat similar to being snuck up from behind by even a mountain lion,
rhino, dog(s), wolves, horse(s), zebra(s), wild pig(s).,anything that can run fast
for that matter. It goes back to why we now see signs posted ;warning us of such
hazards. Also, some wild animals are stressed out by noise(s) from loud motorbikes
along bike trails I would think.
Sep 24th 2011 4:18PM That Texas castle home looks interesting from the outside but what does
it look like from the inside?? How old is that castle(home)? who
designed it? alot of questions come up. I like old brick homes that
go back to the l880s/l890s and l909 era with turrets and arched doorways.
Aug 28th 2011 4:34AM I would rather buy a l9th century fixer upper old house and expand it
gradually . Something like an old brick house that has the old fashioned
hot water radiator heaters already installed. I am old fashioned and I
want a house that has alot of charactar left in it. Every state has its
share of plusses and minusses in terms of geography and outbacks.
Aug 24th 2011 8:54PM Anyone who has that many animals in one house or apartment certainly
will raise a red flag right then and there. Just two animals is enough I
Aug 20th 2011 10:46AM Interesting research topic. I know of some people who are all of the above,even in a very large
house. But what irks me is junk in the front yard, pop and beer bottles thrown onto the yard
for the houe pet to chew on, rusty nails that are hidden but ready to go through my feet and shoes
and last of all , I had to retrieve a new paint brush from the trash ;after it was used only once.
Such wasteful people out there!!!
Aug 9th 2011 6:34PM Hard to believe to see such wastage of what was then expensive real estate.
Some of these buildings could be given to the poor and low income people who
otherwise dont have any equity,who have struggled and failed,but really wanting
a house of their own. Of course! there are always going to arguments and debates
about where will all the money come from to renovate and fix some of these
Aug 8th 2011 10:52PM wow, Just how safe is this kind of paragliding? Looks like the guy was heading for
some trees on landing.He came perilously close to hitting some people below him
on the grass field. What about during the time he was flying over the mountains,
would he ever run any into planes ,flying in different directions? What does he
do to avoid colliding with an aircraft in dense cloud cover??
Aug 1st 2011 6:25PM We really should think in terms of trying to bring back at least some of the great
former classic airlines that we have lost on a domestic route system level,such
as Northeast, TWA, Braniff Int'l(but under new management team), Eastern,
Mohawk, Western, Panam, North Central/Republic, Ozark ,Universal and
Overseas National. but with no more baggage check fees and better services
across the board/better connections/back to paper tickets/more leg room.Like how it
