    Hey Eric, I just happened to see your post today. Had not been following this thread that closely, but glad I checked. Sure, would love to meet you and the kids. My wife and I make the occasional trip to downtown Pensacola to the Pensacola Bay Brewery, located on Zaragosa St. Outstanding beer!:very_drunk: Recommend it highly. There may be a bar/grill at Pensacola Beach that carries Pensacola Bay Brewery beer on tap. A lot of them do. Will check. Pete

    Twist is still acting scared. I want to beleive his behavior is related, mostly, to the injections I was giving him (this morning was the last, I hope). He used to come running when I call him, but not now. He cowers in a back room, rarely emerging. It saddens me that he is, at least for now, so nervous and scared. When I take him back to the vet tomorrow morning, I hope the vet can offer some advice. I am so happy to have Twist back home, and doing so much better, health wise. But I just want him to be more comfortable in his surroundings. NC

    I noted the squadron that aircraft had belonged to was VAQ-134 (Garudas). I was fortunate to have been TAD with them on deployment to Iwakuni in the Summer of '96. Great det. Spent one month of the six on Okinawa. Good times. NC

    I just like to use an extended desktop via the projector outlet on my laptop. I run the Sim in windowed mode on the big monitor, then undock my radio and GPS popups and pull them down to the laptop display. It's also nice to be able to undock my old FSNav and run it on a second screen as an alternative to the undocked popups.

    Thanks Obie. I have given Twist fluids via syringe 3 days now (once, each morning). I am comfortable with administering the injections, but the poor thing does cry out when the needle goes in. It is not a small needle! The vet wants me to give him fluids this way vs drip, as that takes too long. Although I truly do NOT like causing Twist pain, the process takes less than two minutes. He seems to be doing better. When we initially brought him home, he hid in a back room, virtually all day. Last evening, however, he ventured out into the rest of our house. Late last night he was curled up with me on our couch. I was so happy to see him feeling better. It gives me hope. Twist goes back to the vet later this week for blood work. The series of intense hydration is only for 5...

    Thanks Kilo and Thomas! Wow! It would be so great to be able to attend the Alter Stadtsaal someday. I doubt I will ever be able to afford it, unfortunately. Thank goodness for the Internet. At least I can see what it is like and what I am missing! NC

    After some new updates in Win X I installed FSXA with the DX10 preview turned on and went for a flight. Everything is still working well.

    Last week, the manager of the research library at the Naval Aviation Museum died suddenly while at work. Curt Lawson had been with the museum for many years, and he was the first person to help me get started on volunteer work there. Very knowledgeable person, and a great guy. He was a USMC pilot, having flown among other types, the A-6 Intruder. He was shot down over Vietnam, and evaded capture for many hours, while still directing strikes to various targets. NC He will be greatly missed. Here is his obituary:

    I'll do what I can about that story. Right now I'm kind of busy looking for a new job, but will see what I can uncover.
