I will not regale you with any tales of yore, because, quite
frankly, they are borring.

Enough of the fol-de-rol, as there is a Bomber Babe whom I'd
better acknowledge, otherwise her current husband by deign to
do me great bodily harm. If we had a class or two together
back in the day, it has slipped my memory.

Nonetheless, a tip of the ol' propeller beanie and a "Happy
Birthday!" to Betty RUSSELL ('54) on this, her 23rd. May Lloyd
('54) not take you to Taco Time this year.

Our New Year's Display fired at 12:01 AM Jan 1, 2018 was a
great success according to people we met all over the City of
Unalaska, AK that next day. I was aided in my efforts by the
very capable Pyrotechnician Chuck LOLLIS ('64), and three 
volunteers from the city.

I had offered the trip to Chuck not only for his experience 
at pyro work, but as a bit of reward for his years of working
on displays all over the NW for my company, Entertainment
Fireworks, Inc. This along with the fact that Chuck is an easy
going nice fellow, and a fine friend.

He took hundreds of pictures as I showed him the various
features and creatures of the island. So here is a big public
THANK YOU to Chuck for his work and companionship for 10 days
in a remote land. Along with lots of ground squirrels, a
variety of foxes, and hundreds of bald eagles we saw whales 
in the bay.

The display should be on the internet soon and I will publish
the URL as soon as I have it. Part of it is on Facebook now.

My wife Jackie and I did a Fireworks Special for Deadliest
Catch last February up on a mountain plateau at a WW2 military
site. It can be found at: (I suspect you may need to have
cable internet)

Johnathan's 4th

Jackie's Alaska Company "Aurora Pyrotechnics" has a contract
with the Production Company to do all the Fireworks for
"Deadliest Catch". Working for 3 days in a cold warehouse I
converted all of the 300 multi-shot devices to electrical
firing and Jackie arranged and connected them to her state of
the art remote firing system. We transported them on 3 trucks
up the mountain to the site and set them up. Johnathan,
Captain of the vessel "Time Bandit" and Jackie fired them
from a WW2 Lookout Bunker hanging on a cliff 900 feet above
the Bering Sea. 

I believe the video is by Original Productions, Producers of
"The Deadliest Catch" series.

All day yesterday I was concentrating on getting Chuck to
Anchorage so he could fly south to Sea Tac and drive on home.

It was not until I was almost asleep last night that I
realized that it was Jan. 6, 2018, and I am 76 years old. 
How time flies when you are busy with life.

Re: Gene CONLEY ('46-RIP)

Well, I got one of three right. 

Gene CONLEY struck out Al Kaline, Mickey Vernon and Al Rosen
in the 12th inning of the 1955 All-Star game. Stan "The Man"
Musial led off the bottom of the 12th with a walk off home run
giving CONLEY the victory.

Re: Chutney, etc.

I like your selection of spices for chutney. I usually make up
a batch of chutney each year or so and can it for the year's
supply. We usually use apples for the base, rather than
mangoes, and don't use any white refined sugar at all. I used
to shy away from mangoes because of the difficulty cutting
them up until my daughter-in-law showed us the way to do it
right. Now I no longer fear them. The only critique I have on
your recipe is the puree step. I like my chutney chunky. But
then I also like my mashed potatoes chunky - it's proof they
came from real potatoes, not out of a box.

Re: Beads & More

I discovered something today. Richland has a fantastic bead
shop right around the corner from the Spudnut Shop. I took in 
a pair of earrings that needed wires changed & she did it while 
I waited. I had just been to the Richland Farmer's Market (a
disappointment; more merchandise vendors than produce growers),
so I was happy to wait in her air conditioned shop (it was 107
outside)!!!

Tempted to go back tomorrow (Saturday, the 8th), cuz she's
having a big sale from 10 to 5. She has stuff from different
Artisans in the area, including some Indian things.

She's got a lot of cool stuff in there; it's kinda tempting to
get into making jewelry, but I'm m  into stamping that there
is no more space in my craft room.

Anyway, I wanted to share my discovery with all you Bombers
out there. Of course, my being excited at finding this place
doesn't mean you will be, but it's worth checking out anyway.

       not quite as hot as in town, but plenty hot even so!
