Speaking of having to enter useless info while filling out forms online.

Why does one have to enter the city and state along with the zip code? Can't they get the other info just from the zip?  ???

This goes for snail mail too.  What help is the city and state if you have the zip?

People that try to merge into your space on the highway and give you dirty looks after you honk the horn to let them know you are there.  Makes me want to mount that 50 calibre I have lying on the shelf.

Is that the same shelf in your garage that has your canyon cages on it?

Could be.  That shelf is getting crowded.  I've had to add more shelves.

As background, I'm 38 and have been in service 20 years, married for 17 to the same woman with 2 kids. I don't drink regularly but I do enjoy an adult beverage now and again. I've been drunk maybe once in the past year, 3 or 4 times in the past decade. Always have a plan and never touch a drop outside my home or without knowing some I trust implicitly is there as my wingman.

Because a couple of dumb-asses stationed 4 hours from me got DUIs, our Wing is going to go on General Order 1, NO ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION.

Prohibition failed some time back....with disastrous consequences...  I agree with Gary...punishing the entire Wing does not make any sense.

For ever? You get assigned to that wing you have to give up beer for the duration? Your out with the wife for dinner you can't have a glass of wine or a beer?

We don't know how long yet, hopefully no longer than a month or so. If they go with a 90 day thing it'll run through July 4th, which will not be cool.

No beer or wine at dinner, no exceptions. Sorry for your luck.

I would probably have to contact a JAG lawyer. I don't believe that is a lawful order.

And tonight, I ran out of brandy :-(   All out of cheap Scotch too so I am making do with Dimple Pinch. Almost forgot how much I like the stuff, and the best part is it does not need to be cut with water and ice to hide the nasty undertones. Nice stuff....

Sorry, not trying to rub anyone's nose in 'it'.
