In Moot Member Blogs Words to Die For Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #256 New January 14th, 2021 04:00 PM
Given all what has been going on, I have been doing some thinking about what is worth dying for. Three songs came to mind, in no particular order. They are as follows:

The Star-Spangled Banner
The Battle Hymn of the Republic (The Army Band has a great video on YouTube)
Creed, sung by Third Day in Portland, Maine (also on YouTube).

The first two are pretty obvious, given my Army service, as I was commissioned at the end of Vietnam, and understood that when putting on the green uniform, ...More Read More

We got back yesterday from visiting our son in Michigan. The hotel where we stayed had this little sign in the bathroom telling us how many million gallons of water were being used to wash towels that had hardly been used, so please do not discard towels without thoroughly using them.

I figure that this had to be one of California's headaches to inflict on the rest of the country and planet. The hotel we were at was in a small town in Michigan, which probably had a town septic system and a ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Last Columbus Day? Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #254 New December 10th, 2020 12:49 AM
My wife and I were talking after the election about Columbus Day and Thanksgiving, and how much longer would they be celebrated. We figure that Columbus Day is on borrowed time, and depending on how the Senate goes, it may no longer be observed next year. Instead, we will have something called "Indigenous People's Day" to place guilt trips on all people of European descent for how nasty we were to all of the peace-loving and innocent indigenous people that were here prior to Columbus. Now, a ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Sword of Cepheus Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #253 New November 22nd, 2020 02:39 AM
I have gone through Sword of Cepheus, and it does look interesting. I would have to give the combat system a try, and also spend some time working on the magic. I have been adding some rank names to various character classes, and I need to check if I can post some ideas on the forum. There are a fair number of typos that need to be cleaned up Naval combat really needs work, as prior to the development of fairly heavy guns, the only way to sink a ship prior to about 1500 was ram it or burn it ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Conan and Scouts Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #252 New November 15th, 2020 03:29 PM
Looks like Dachau was not exactly popular, probably because viewers had some idea as to what they might be reading. If they think reading is bad, they should try viewing the photos. I am glad that they are not in color, just black and white. Those are bad enough.

I had a couple of thoughts yesterday, peaked by reading some original D&D stuff, along with thinking about the post dealing with good backgrounds for scouts in World War 2.

For Conan, I started thinking about adapting his char ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Dachau Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #251 New November 13th, 2020 11:50 PM
Rather than working on some of my other projects, I am presently working on transcribing, from a not real good mimeograph, the initial report on the Dachau concentration camp done for Supreme Headquarters, Allied Expeditionary Force, immediately after the liberation of the camp. When I say immediately, the data in the report was taken two and three days after the camp liberation, so extremely fast. The report is hard to read for two reasons. One, it is not a good copy, but it is what was pos ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Garage Cleaning Goodies Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #250 New November 7th, 2020 08:51 PM
It is always interesting, if not easy work, to do cleaning in the garage. We are in the middle, by we I mean my wife and myself, of major cleaning in the garage, to get rid of a lot of stuff collected over the years which is no longer needed, or chewed up by various and sundry small critters: mice, shrews, and chipmunks are the most likely suspects.

One result is the re-discovery of a large number of books and copies that I had lost track of. One book in particular, published around 1898, ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Birthday Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #249 New October 25th, 2020 02:12 AM
Today I hit 69, and I feel like about 169. That is the way it has been most of last week. Hopefully, I will be in better shape and spirits tomorrow when we are supposed to drive to my daughter's house to celebrate my birthday. It will be good to see them and their new puppy, Daisy, who is growing like a weed. She is a Welsh Corgi, so she brings back a lot of memories of my parents dog, who was also very much a Welsh Corgi. So, we will see how it goes.

I do need to get back to work on so ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Martian Rails Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #248 New October 20th, 2020 02:54 AM
For a change of pace with our Monday night game at the church, we played Martian Rails. The biggest headache in that game is trying to figure out where all of the cities are, along with the cargos. Every time I play it, I find another science fiction series or story that they used to come up with ideas for cities, cargoes, and general stuff. Tonight, the one that jumped out at me was the "Repelatron Bridge" which helps you to get over the cliffs in the Mariner Canyon. That is straight out o ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Senate Embarrassment Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #247 New October 13th, 2020 08:35 PM
The Democrats in the Senate managed to exceed my estimate of their total imbecility today, when the brain-dead female senator from Hawaii asked Judge Amy Barrett if she had ever sexually assaulted somebody. The judge has already undergone 2 FBI background checks, and not even the less than trustworthy FBI could come up with anything. This is getting beyond the bounds of ridiculous to borderline obscenity. This is the same imbecile, and I might be insulting imbeciles, who likes the Green New ...More Read More
