Morning, Daisy. Good the pain pill gave you relief.

......

Speaking of Alcatraz. Check my profile today and see photo of DH (the chef) & me minutes after getting off the ferry from a trip around the island. Incredible winds that day, even for there. Doesn't seem like that was almost 30 years ago.

Glad to hear the pills are working out for you, GD.
So, did you have the birthday party with the new doll & her wardrobe yet, or is that this week?

Dix, you read something wrong on Baen's site. ALL of their books are available in Kindle format. I've been a regular user of their Free Library and paid titles for more than 10 years and have never had a problem.

I suspect that they've stopped updating their free library as frequently as they used to because they are now releasing so many free books on CD's. You can find a list of all the free CD's and download links here: http://cmbs.cnc.net/baen_free_cds.html

Yep, Dix. Again. Already. I've been running an intense training schedule going back over three weeks ago involving three ATC students about to enter the radar approach control phase of their training. The first week was a training class scenario with all three students. The following two weeks and all this week involve running simulated radar problems, one student per weeks and a minimum of two dozen scenarios per student.

I'm bushed.

Hey Dix,
I forgot - also picked up this freebie today, might be up your alley:

ICEHOTEL - Hanna Allen

Also, I noticed there's a scandi-crime price drop on this month's $3.99/under lists - but it's got mixed reviews. Turns out I pre-ordered it a while back and it's lending enabled, so let me know if you ever feel like giving it a try.

I think he needs to rest up from his adventures with Ursala--that doesn't look correct...help, Doug... or maybe from retirement.

I'm in San Francisco, Russian Hill. And I've been here since 1985. Never been to Alcatraz Island either. Ah, we natives. Yes, lets get together Carol. We can go to Coit Tower and send Doug photos. AHHHH
All our favorite Sushi spots are no where near the dock. Give me another day and I'll put out the word and your location. Maybe the Ferry Building. I'm checking.
Add to the extras of Blue Angels, Fleet Week, you will be here for the last days of the Oct 2-7 Americas Cup Regatta. Finals in Aug. Why leave the ship? The bay should be amazing. 11 yachts in full sail.

R. Doug says:
Avid: Ursa is Latin for "Bear" (think Ursa Major and Ursa Minor). Ursula would thus be a little female bear. And, true to her name, she certainly is cuddly cute.

But not before her first cup of coffee, in which case she can be a real bear.

Just kidding.

Doug:
Check out Delica in the Ferry Bldg. www.delicasf.com simple and inexpensive and close by with the extra treat of being in the Ferry Building, one of the best spots in San Francisco to get a real flavor of SF food. I try to hit the Saturday Market when ever I can. Google Ferry Building San Francisco.

IF only you had told me that she was a 'bear' I would surely have known how to spell it.

Doug, is the "radar approach control" what you guys do when my guy "flys the approach"? He does this periodically to keep his skills up.

Joanne, we could do that. I never go to the City unless I am showing someone around. I get lost up there! And the traffic and one-way streets are such a mess. I did go up twice last week. Once to take my GS to Golden Gate Park where we walked around the Japanese Tea Garden and the arboritum and a couple of days later to spend the day at the Exploratorium, where I hadn't been since my GS's mom was in college. Back then (25 yrs ago) we used to go to the Exploratorium regularly. It's my favorite place in the City.

R. Doug says:
Not exactly, Carol. When you hubby "flies an approach" for practice, he's maintaining currency for his Instrument Flight Rules Rating (his "license" to fly in Instrument Meteorlogical Conditions or, more simply put, flying by instruments in low-visibility conditions). As an approach controller, we clear aircraft for those approaches, but we also work aircraft flying under visual flight rules and we work departing aircraft to put them on course and hand them off to the en route centers.

Thanks Doug. What got you interested in becoming an ATC? It seems to me you have to know at least as much as someone actually flying. What do you think of the Kings? DH told me they have every possible rating there is. Heck, I'm lucky to have a driver's license! Actually our dog has one too. A driver's license, that is.

If you go to Inthecompanyofdogs.com you can get a license for your dog for any state in the U.S. It looks just like one for people. It comes in full size and one smaller to go on the dog's collar. We first got one for our dog when SF was talking about allowing illegals to vote in school board elections. We figured if illegals can vote, our dog can drive.
