To be completely transparent, I am not actually in Munich. I am just passing this on as a Public Service Announcement. I did go to Oktoberfest in Munich in 1996. It was the biggest party I have ever seen. Our group arrived by train, worked our way to the Hofbrauhaus, where the place was rocking at 9 a.m. and then fought the crowd to the Oktoberfest area. Imaging the worst last-minute Christmas shopping at your local mall and then multiply the crowd by 10. It was still a blast.

I thought the Buckeye fans did a great "red out" today...oh wait, that's every game!

Reminds me of a funny story. Two young lieutenants who worked with me at my last assignment were talking about who had a better time for the two mile run. It came down to: OK, tomorrow morning, 0530, let's settle this at the track before coming to work. At 0645, when they reported for work, one was grinning from ear to ear. Not only had he won - he did it wearing two left shoes! He didn't want to wake up his wife that morning, so he left the lights off when he rummaged through the closet for his shoes. When he got to the track and found out his mistake, there was no way he was going to back down!  We all had a good laugh at that!

Congratulations, Miami! You've been working hard on this project and it is about to come to fruition. Please keep us all informed.

FWIW, my SIL has written a series of children's books and she says when people buy them on Amazon, she ends up with practically nothing. She'd prefer to sell them via Facebook where she can make at least a little bit. #5 in her series is due out soon and I'd be surprised if she's been able to break even. But, she loves writing and getting a story out that hopefully appeals to adolescents.

LOL! Just a couple days ago had a (flock, group, gaggle, whatever, pick one)_____ of about a dozen wild turkeys come sashaying along the side of our house. They moseyed across the street and disappeared in the neighbors back yard. They were squawking all the way! Funny as hell!
