Finished a Book

I am continually reading books related to the last 10 years of war on two fronts.  A lot of them are similar, some are standouts.  I found one on a different vein, "Terrorists in Love."  It is comprised of interviews of jihaddists, some reformed and some even more radical than the norm.  It definitely changes the way you think about what is going on.  Some questionable loyalties are clarified.  If you want to change the way you think, check it out, from the library.  The author is/was a prosecutor of Guantanamo Bay prisoners.  He is very credible.

Terrorists in Love

This book is adult material with some graphic stories.

So I was at Edwards Airforce Base Yesterday

Near the gate is a display of vintage jet aircraft.  I am not a jet junky but am always interested in things that go fast and make loud noises.  These are for your viewing pleasure. 

 I didn't tune into taking pictures and sharing until I was a couple planes into the display.  An F-100 was the first and was the original successful military jet.

I Love Wood


I grew up in Centralia, WA.  When we moved there in the early 1970 my Dad bought a Stihl chainsaw from a shop called Madsen's.  It was a little place in an old gas station.  They had a big reputation with the loggers around that area.  Madsen's actually taught Stihl how to make a high performance saws.  Even though logging is pretty small new compared to the good old day's, Madsen's is still around.  I was cruising around the web and thought I would look them up.  They have a nationwide customer base due to their reputation for service and great saws.  They have a customer photo section that shows some amazing tree falling. 

Big wood  Scroll to the last picture to get a real perspective on the size of the wood!

I am in the market for a mid size saw, I just might have to go see them...
