Where in the World is…

… you better have finished by busting out “Carmen Sandiego!”  Such a good show.  And an awesome computer game that I used to play on our ancient desktop I-don’t-even-know-how-old-or-what-kind computer back in the day (along with Oregon Trail… the original version).

Follow the Bouncing Airplane

NavyGuy has his final day of “bouncing” today before his squadron heads out to “the boat.” Wait – better back up. NavyGuy’s squadron used to be an expeditionary squadron, or a squadron that deployed to land.  Hence his deployment to a base in the desert last year.  However, most squadrons that fly the airplane he […]
