    As every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat. Most people with cats know they are being controlled. That is the most disturbing part. A cat knows your every thought. They don't care, but they know. There is no snooze button on a cat who wants to be fed. Cats are smarter than dogs (or reindeer). You can't get eight cats to pull a sled through snow. Thousands of years ago, cats were worshipped as gods. Cats have never forgotten this. John EDIT: Related to pulling sleds (and a lot of other things) - If you're not the lead dog, the view never changes. JDA

    I'm on a mission to the snow country in Airhauler, Christmas tree hauling from the sierras back to Napa...seems like a good time to grab some Screenshot Competition pics. But I'm nearer to the coast and no snow in sight from 2O3-Angwin Parret: Departure 20 minutes before dawn. It's a challenge parking a Caribou at Angwin, but getting it in and out of this little strip is a cinch. The Sun pokes up quickly as I climb to greet it, and I enjoy the sight of the last of the night lights. I've arrived at the foothills, already dusted well with powder after some recent rain...errr..snow at these elevations. And a tempting canyon looms ahead...thankfully cargo damage isn't a factor, though AH2 keeps reminding me about my bank angle...A. I'm deadheading to pick up Christmas trees, and B. Cargo damage isn't even modeled yet in AH2...so fun ahead! And leaving the canyon into a very well powdered valley. My destination is just 8 miles away, 4000 feet up, and around a bend...basically, follow that road. Still following that road, but a bit closer... Performing/trying out a 1 point "Wheelbarrow" touch and go for the 4 or 5 folks not paying attention at this tiny strip...then the fun is over and back to Cargo work. Cheers, thanks for looking.

The Cat’s Diary Day 983 of My Captivity My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength. The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet. Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates my capabilities. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a “good little hunter” I am. Bastards! There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of “allergies.” I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage. Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow, but at the top of the stairs. I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released, and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded. The bird must be an informant. I observe him communicate with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now ...

    Buddhist airways is one of the worst for in flight meal service...passengers have to bring their own food and share it with the monk/stewards, who enjoy the offerings on the austerity of the post flight ramp.

    Nice work, those aircraft defy belief at the small strips they can get into.

    Fact being stranger than fiction, my Father-in Law was in the RAF and as well as being an aircraft electrician, was also on the crash crew as and when needed. At the time of the incident he was based at RAF Northolt, when one afternoon an Indian Air Force Lockheed Constellation came in carrying some VIPs. The passengers got off and were whisked away, the crew then proceeded to ignore the well equipped galley on the aircraft and lit a fire on the apron underneath it! They were part way through preparing their food when the fire crew turned up and put an end to proceedings! For some reason these silly buggers did not trust the aircrafts equipment and wanted to do things the traditional way! By all accounts they were directed to the Crews Mess and told to eat there!

    Piper PA42 Cheyenne from Carenado. A fast and reliable turboprop, well equipped for some nice IFR training. Took a short flight from Ciampino to Naples performing published SID and STAR manually.

    All of the above Martin. It's about as self agitating a washing machine as I can imagine...the brush assembly may not even be required. (fyi, I am feeding my pampered and completely dry cat Marina fresh roasted chicken bits from my dinner as I am typing this...no cats of mine will ever be washed this way...besides, i have a marine head, doubt I could hold the bowl shut whilst hand pumping and the fur would surely clog the Joker Valve.

    I think that with a bit more brush area it could make a very effective cat washer...toss in a bit of soap, toss in a kitty, slam down lid, hit the on switch...allow to agitate for a minute or so and flush a few times to finish the wash cycle.
