    Re: The Revolution Trilogy - Rick Atkinson

    My wife checked this out of the library for me. About 60 pages in and find it very well done so far, lots of interesting little details I never thought or knew about. -- Al

    Jason, it always comes down to what you are willing to pay, or can pay. Nats have the money but the pieces to trade are slim. Nats have really emptied out a lot of their trade chips over the last...

    Nats lost a chance to gain a game on Atlanta last night because...wait for it...their bullpen blew another game.:mad: Nats SP left with a 2-1 lead and it took the bullpen 1 out to blow the lead. The...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    No matter how hot they are, the Nats can't seem to close on Atlanta. Atlanta just stays hot and keeps that 6-8 game lead. After last night's games, the Nats are 31-12 in their last 43 games and have...

    Anyone else watching this Boston crime drama starring Kevin Bacon? Bacon plays a veteran FBI agent after armored car robbers/murderers. I've really enjoyed it so far. Bacon has been great and there...

    Nice shot of the Madon Spad. Really shows how red it is as opposed to the JJD publicity shots which make it look almost orange. Nice plane. -- Al

    The Dodgers are actually tied with the Cubs for the most WS series lost at 14. Dodgers are 6-14 overall while the Cubs are 3-14. At least the Dodgers get to the Big Show on a regular basis. -- Al

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    Following the O's is a trial. All year they have struggled but at least they had 3 decent (adequate) SP's and then flipped a coin for #'s 4 and 5. Well, the other day one of their Big 3 SP's had to...

    I wouldn't mind some French Colonial troops either, like the Zouaves. You can't beat the 1914 French uniforms for color and variety. -- Al

    Mike, congrats on getting the JJD aircraft, especially the Mannock SE-5 which is rather hard to find. John's SE-5 is a favorite of mine and is particularly well done. -- Al

    Yep. 'Honey West' Anne Francis wore some pretty skimpy stuff in Forbidden Planet. I think the Forbidden in the title had a lot more to it than just staying away from the Krill secrets.:wink2: -- Al
