Re: The Electric Woman by (new pen name) James Scott - Amazon link 

Went to Amazon and ordered your new book. It came in 2 days
and I've already started reading it. I'm only in chapter 1,
but I'm hooked already! Thanks, and keep writing.

Re: Daylight Saving Time (DST)

As I recall, DST was decided by the states, then the Federal
Gubberment passed a law that said it was still up to the
individual states, but if you did go to DST it had to start
and end on certain days so it would be uniform among states
that engaged in this simi-annual stupidity. Because of the
"energy crises" in the 1970s either Nixon or Carter put us
on year round DST, but I don't remember which and don't know
if it was a law or by executive order. Reagan did not end
DST, but he did revert it back to being only for "the good
old summertime." I think DST was one of the factors leading
to the demise of the drive-in movie theater. I was told a
couple weeks ago that the Milton-Freewater drive-in was now
closed, but I don't know if that is true, I think I was told
that before, but a year and half ago they were showing a
movie as I drove by. Also I think between six months and year
ago they were on KNDU Ch 25 with a segment showing they had
spent the money, and it wasn't cheap, to upgrade to showing
the movies with digital projectors in order to stay in
business because movie film was now obsolete.

Re: Fireplaces

In the '70s they were encouraging everyone to build houses
with a fireplace to save heating energy. Almost all new
houses were built with a fireplace. Then in the '80s they
were telling everybody not to build a fire in your fireplace
because of pollution. Nowadays I don't think many houses are
built with fireplaces.

Re: Semper Fi

We all know I could not possibly name all Marine Bombers 
so instead I will simply say:
	 HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALL BOMBER MARINES (1775)! 
		And Marines everywhere!

From the Halls of Montezuma
To the Shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom 
And to keep our honor clean; 
We are proud to claim the title 
of United States Marine. 

Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in ev'ry clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes; 
You will find us always on the job
The United States Marines. 

Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve 
In many a strife we've fought for life 
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes; 
They will find the streets are guarded 
By United States Marines.

Re: Big Birthday

Happy 242nd Birthday to the United States Marine Corps. 
242 years of tradition, unhampered by progress. The most
destructive fighting force known to man. 

Happy Birthday to all of my brother and sister Marines and
especially our Navy Corpsmen.
