You might as well like yourself; just think about all the time you're gonna have to spend with you.

Itís insane. Our fuel surcharge for CA, central Atlantic and New England were all close to $0.90 per mile last week. 3 years ago, the freight charges to go from NJ to IL were $0.90 per mile. The fuel surcharge was about $0.25 per mile.

I went through $430. in my pickup truck this week. I use to average about $270- $300. That takes a big bite out of the play money.

If it helps any with your planning, diesel has dropped $0.20/gallon up here in the past week...down to $6.39. I just stuffed $110 into the Mighty Dodge for tomorrow's trip, which should make it to North Carolina where diesel is around $5.79/gallon at all of the usual truck stop chains.....

Far from being the Great Satan, I would say that we are the Great Protector. We have sent men and women from the armed forces of the United States to other parts of the world throughout the past century to put down oppression. We defeated Fascism. We defeated Communism. We saved Europe in World War I and World War II. We were willing to do it, glad to do it. We went to Korea. We went to Vietnam. All in the interest of preserving the rights of people.
And when all those conflicts were over, what did we do? Did we stay and conquer? Did we say, "Okay, we defeated Germany. Now Germany belongs to us? We defeated Japan, so Japan belongs to us"? No. What did we do? We built them up. We gave them democratic systems which they have embraced totally to their soul. And did we ask for any land? No, the only land we ever asked for was enough land to bury our dead. And that is the kind of nation we are.

This is rather appropriate for today.....

Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force:

You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months.

The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you.

In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped, and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely.

But this is the year 1944. Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned. The free men of the world are marching together to victory.

I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory.

Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.


General Dwight D. Eisenhower. Order of the Day, 6 June, 1944

As a mechanical engineering manager.

I tell my my guys that the only design constraints we have are the parts we have made.

I like to say after lunch that I’m going back to work to design something I get to fix in six months.

Ha! My previous job I worked for Ramsey Winch up in Tulsa. Our joke in the engineering department was:

"There's the right way. The wrong way, and the Ramsey way."

Being a smaller company in that field, we often had to pull super quick turn arounds to get business, meaning sometimes we'd have to LEGO stuff together for new products.
