I will get the second one... Martin Caidin...writer, pilot, man of the world. Many of you will know his writing--"Cyborg"--which became the six-million dollar man. What you don't know is that he holds a world record for piloting with the highest number of wing-walkers on his plane--26 I believe. And it was on a German WWII bomber that he had rebuilt and later gave To Lufthansa. I could write pages, but let's just say that he was much larger than real life. I met the man just a couple of years before he died from brain cancer and just talking to him changed my life......trust me...the man worked on project blue book and skeptic is the lighest word that describes his world view. Here's too ya bub.....

To all of those that have or are still serving in our armed forces! A toast to all of us who think that personal liberty and the Constitution aren't some silly ideas that have lost they're meaning since 1776. And a toast to Hound for making it to 1K!! [beer]

To the man who made my life complete. Henry Hudson 1922-2002 my father in law USArmy 1942-1945 Communications Phillipines When he got home, he made my wife. The saddest day of my recent life was when we buried Henry, back in April. He left me as "the man of the family".. And I've got 4 women to be "that man" to. Please pray for us all. Thanks, Tim
