    Barstow, Ludlow, Newberry Springs

    This day is known in the United States of America as Veterans Day. In my childhood it was called Armistice Day by the wizzened, white haired old men in the little towns that I grew up in in Montana. When I lived on the Prairies of Southern Alberta in Canada, it was Remembrance Day. On…

  • Day trip to Baker

    We decided to run up the 15 to Baker. One of our favorite little places is there, that being Alien Fresh Jerky. I got a T shirt that after it is laundered will be posted. I did take the Trusty Nikon and I did get a few pictures taken. It was an aim and fire…

  • Monday run to Lancaster…..

  • New Coffee Machine

    Mrs. ORPO bought a Kuerig 2.0 sometime back and I was introduced to using one on our last trip to the Central Coast. The billeting at Camp San Luis Obispo has replaced the traditional drip coffee makers with Kuerigs. I admit that they make a “damn fine cup of coffee.” OK, I love that line…

  • China Lake Air Show

    It was a small show. I was impressed by the way it was run though. The Blue Angels were there for their first show on the road. I have seen them so many times that I spend my time wandering through the static displays. The Brits and Dutch had their Test F-35s under the canopies…

    Germanicus During the height of the Roman Empire, Germanicus was universally recognized by soldiers, citizens and politicians alike to be the single most ferocious, merciless yet honorable warrior ever to be produced by Rome.

  • Silent Lucidity

    I like Queensryche…………………… Hush now don’t cry Wipe away the teardrop from your eye You’re lying safe in bed It was all a bad dream Spinning in your head Your mind tricked you to feel the pain Of someone close to you leaving the game of life So here it is, another chance Wide awake…
