  1. Please don’t rush to judgment on the Mueller report, people! We need to wait and hear the opinions of Alyssa Milano and Robert De Niro before we can draw a final conclusion! 😂
  2. Any military surplus stores near you? Might find some used ones in decent shape there... If not, how soon do you need them? I can check around San Antonio, but it won't be anytime in the next few days... Cheers! M2
  3. No, art deco has been around for a century after replacing art nouveau as a major decorative style after WWI... It represented a machine age aesthetic, replacing flowing, floral motifs with streamlined, geometric designs that expressed the speed, power and scale of modern technology. Design influences were many, from the modern art movements of Cubism, Futurism and Constructivism to ancient geometric design elements from the exotic cultures of Egypt, Assyria and Persia. In poster art, precursors were the German Plakatstil, the Viennese Secession and the Parisian fashion design revolution that began in 1908. The style received its name from the Decorative Arts Exposition of Paris in 1925, which marked the full flowering of Art Deco design. Simplification and abstraction were always it's hallmarks, although the graceful elegance and exoticism of its early days yielded to a more muscular and forceful style in the late 1920s and 1930s. That final phase is often called the "Cassandre Style" after its most famous artist, who enjoyed a one-man show at the Museum of Modern Art in 1936. Cassandre's sleek designs of towering ships and speeding trains are still considered the style's quintessential images.

    I you haven't seen Spitfire (available on Amazon Prime Video), you are missing a helluva good documentary! Pure flying porn!
  8. I thought another commander was about to be fired, then I realized this was just a poor attempt at drawing an arrow on the picture!
  9. The cleaning ladies at SHAPE regularly "dropped in" while I was in the middle of a good dump. I figured they knew the risks involved when they signed up for the job...
  10. $62,825 raised by 1,223 people in 10 hours!
  11. Not directly related, but I do know an AD USN O-3 that is joining the AD USMC as an O-1. I thought he'd keep his rank, as that has been my experience with cross-service transfers in the past; but he explained to get the transfer he would have to be "demoted" as he wouldn't have enough experience as an infantry officer in the Marines commensurate with his current rank...
  12. I sold the Repsol last summer. Just wasn't riding it, and felt it deserved to be ridden. It was tough to hand over the keys, but she's getting the attention she deserves. The Jeep has proven to be an effective replacement in obtaining the thrill of the great outdoors with a slightly less level of risk. Plus, having heat, music, room for three passengers (the family) and most importantly the ability to put the top back up when it rains, and having four wheels on wet roads, is comforting. I'm getting too damn hold to risk pneumonia! I still have a 1991 Honda ST1100 in the garage, it's been in hibernation for many years as well but I hope one day to make a project out of getting it back on the road. That is the bike I bought when I pinned on first lieutenant and rode all over Europe, it would take a lot for me to give up that one! The CBR was a mid-life crisis retirement gift to myself, so it was easier to let go although it's always heartbreaking to get rid of a great bike! Cheers! M2
