Yeah, and if memory serves me correctly, he and "Miss Vicky" got married on the Johnny Carson Show!

I remember watching that on TV. Tiny Tim was also in Monroe about 25+ yeas ago in a circus I took my kids to. My mother-in-law went up and got his signature from him.

I don't remember him being here but I suppose I easily could have missed it too.

This video explains how a wind farm is built. It takes around 3 weeks to install a turbine.

I see they're going to build one 'offshore' out in Lake Erie...   

wonder how much longer it will take to build one out there?

Here's a little tidbit of info for those that may not be a big fan of the Great Lakes freighter industry.

While the crews are gone for weeks at a stretch they are still able to get mail delivered to their boats.

In our region it's in the Detroit River and the freighters don't even have to stop...

the 'postal boat' just pulls along side and 'delivers'...

in this particular case it was a little more than a few letters and a box of chocolates though:

The crewmembers on the freighters are able to stay in touch via more than the mail service though although in days past that was about the only way. 

When satellite phones first came out they were some of the first customers with at least one phone per boat so they were seldom out of touch even if they had radio issues. 

Now with cell phones and tablets I would guess that crew members can get service in at least some areas when they're close to shore.

This is the unit I was in for most of my Army days.  I actually trained as a mortar (indirect fire they called it) crew member in AIT but at the time I was with the 1-64th they didn't have any mortar tracks...

The 1-15th infantry (Audie Murphy) "To Hell and Back") was stationed with us and they had several mortar units but through re-alignment it isn't like it used to be!!!

As my wife was watching this she asked how much each one of those shells cost...

I have not idea but would guess anywhere from several hundred to a couple of thousand dollars each!  Different shells do different things including flares that will hang from a parachute to light up the area if necessary.

Well...

you do NOT look down the tube to see what the problem is!!!

There is a strict process to go through...

that does happen occasionally.

Here is everything (and probably a lot more) than you ever wanted to know about mortars.  This manual happens to be from the Marine Corps but the procedures would be similar. 

Note:   this is a 346 page file!

Isn't 'mortar' that stuff that goes between cement blocks and bricks?
