Hiya Kenny!

Can't speak for the rest, but work is keeping me quiet - unusual for me, maybe... but will be like this for at least for another week or two.

The daily log sounds great!

The 'Living Room Picture' was some fine writing...says alot about the Greatest Generation and how they brought up their children...we have a lot to live up to, don't we? I can see that you truly appreciate both of your parents and the values they taught us and pass them on to your children. That's a wonderful thing.

How are you feeling? I know the Gators are looking forward to the time when your Doctor gives you the go ahead to visit the ship! They miss you all!

<font face="comic sans ms" color=navy size=4>... but my plate's been pretty full lately. Ship's business plus personal matters.

I'm still hoping to get the revised Ship's Store (with the Shopping Cart) online before the end of the month, but right now it's looking a bit "iffy." I still want to give it a thorough "checking out" (pardon the pun) before putting it online.

And silly me. Things were a bit slow on the website, so I volunteered to do some data entry for Bob Ostrander's mailing project for donations. No sooner did I do that, than I suddenly got flooded with materials to post! Oh well ...

I, too, want to congratulate you on a superb article. Tying the story in with "The Living Room Picture" was an A-One Class Act! All in all, that was one terrific article. Thanks very much for sharing it with all of us.

Here's for you:

I very much enjoyed the article you wrote and agree with all the good comments about it. I plan to leave for Chickasaw this Saturday and am sorry you will not be there for awhile. It will take many people to fill your shoes. Best Wishes for a speedy recovery.

You and your family have lived a very interesting life. Thankfully you have shared it with many others, both in the process of helping others as you lived it, and in sharing the story.

Hi Ken,
The ship looks great. I need a welder. I have to hook up two 30 hp motors in engine rooms and need two holes in deck. Do you know any good welders available? We just got here for a month. Feels great to stumble over everything. Our compartment still smells the same. Get well soon. Gary

Gary...since we now know you're aboard ship, you know we'll also expect updates...

Only wish this Snipe's daughter could be there to help... And relax, Kenny...I don't know how to weld.

I'm not gonna ask about the compartment smell....

<font face="comic sans ms" color=navy size=4>Snowbird, I think it was you who explained to me "over there" why my alarm clock wasn't working even with a European adaptor (50-cycle vs. 60-cycle).

Now can you tell me why light bulbs burn out faster in some sockets than in others? I can't replace the ones downstairs fast enough!

1st. Don't buy ultra cheap bulbs made in China
2nd. Buy 130 volt copper base bulbs
3rd. buy a inexpensive digital voltmeter and see what kind of voltage you have in various parts of your house. If you have over 130 volts (which is possible) cheap bulbs can't take higher voltage.
4th. If all else fails buy 240 volt bulbs. They will last forever. You have to double the wattage to get your normal light output. A 150 watt 240 volt bulb will put out 75 watts till hell freezes over.
5th. The socket in your lamp could be loose or worn out.
6th. Move to Minnesota.

<font face="comic sans ms" color=navy size=4>Both rooms are downstairs, my bedroom and my office. They both have two overhead double-bulb lights. These are the ones that burn out all the time. I was thinking it might be overvoltage on the circuit, but I doubt that because it doesn't happen with the 4-bulb fixture in the downstairs bathroom. If it was an overvoltage problem, wouldn't that affect the ones in the bathroom too?

I get good quality bulbs and they last forever through the rest of the house, including the ones outside, which can be exposed to some pretty drastic temperature extremes and nasty weather.

There's got to be some logical pattern to this, but I think there's something wrong with my latest logic update.
