Who needs a manual?

OOPS !
 
This brand spanking new Airbus 340-600, the largest passenger airplane ever built, sits just outside its hangar in Toulouse, France without a single hour of airtime.
 
Enter the Arab flight crew of Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies (ADAT) to conduct pre-delivery tests on the ground, such as engine run-ups, prior to delivery to Etihad Airways in Abu Dhabi

The ADAT crew taxied the A340-600 to the run-up area. Then they took all four engines to takeoff power with a virtually empty aircraft. Not having read the run-up manuals, they had no clue just how light an empty A340-600 really is.

 
The takeoff warning horn was blaring away in the cockpit because they had ALL 4 engines at full power. The aircraft computers thought they were trying to take off, but it had not been configured properly (flaps/slats, etc..)

 
Then one of the ADAT crew decided to pull the circuit breaker on the Ground Proximity Sensor to silence the alarm. This fools the aircraft into thinking it is in the air. The computers automatically released all the brakes and set the aircraft rocketing forward.

 
The ADAT crew had no idea that this is a safety feature so that pilots can't land with the brakes on.

Not one member of the seven-man Arab crew was smart enough to throttle back the engines from their max power setting, so the $200 million brand-new aircraft crashed into a blast barrier, totaling it.


 
The extent of injuries to the crew is unknown due to the news blackout in the major media in France and elsewhere. Because........

 
Coverage of the story was deemed insulting to Muslim Arabs.  

 
Finally, the photos are starting to leak out.

 
 
One French Airbus: $200 million dollars
Untrained Arab Flight Crew: $300,000 Yearly Salary
Unread Operating Manual: $300
Aircraft meets retaining wall and the wall wins.
PRICELESS!!!

Starbucks Coffee


Another one of my finer days.

 Life just gets better as you get older; doesnt it?
    I was in a Starbucks Coffee shop recently when my stomach started rumbling and I realized that I desperately needed to fart. The place was packed but the music was really loud, so to get relief and reduce embarrassment I timed my farts to the beat of the music. After a couple of songs I started to feel much better. I finished my coffee and noticed that everyone was staring at me….

 I suddenly remembered that I was listening to my Ipod through my headset…….. and how was your day?


   This is what happens when old people start using technology!

The Miracle of Wine


The Miracle of Wine
In the Alcohol Aisle…
 
Praise the Lord!












 
"And God promised men that good and obedient
wives would be found in all corners of the earth."
Then he made the earth round
And he laughed and laughed and laughed."

Tsarnaev Family


Tsarnaev Family

So now we find out that the entire Tsarnaev family (Dad, Mom, 2 sons & 2 daughters)
started receiving government assistance as soon as they set foot in our country.

As political refugees they were entitled to settlement assistance from day one.
(Section 8 Housing, public health care, food stamps etc.)

Then their stellar older son impregnates and marries the daughter of a doctor,
and this new little Muslim family receives 18 months of government assistance.

They only came off welfare after the naive young “wife” starts working 70 hours a week
while husband Tamerlan stays home and builds bombs and plans to kill and injure the very Americans
who have paid for his pathetic existence for the past 12 plus years.

A Breakdown of your and my investment into the Tsarnaev Family:

Section 8 housing
Free public health care
Food stamps and other EFT transfer payments
Federal Pell Grants for both sons and most likely their daughters as well.
(That is $5200.00 per year for each son or daughter who attended a college.)

City of Cambridge also awarded a $2500 per year scholarship to the younger son.
Younger son also reportedly was receiving state college scholarship.

What did we receive for our investment:

Older son was arrested for domestic battery on a former girlfriend.
The mother was arrested last year for shoplifting $1600 in merchandise
from a Lord & Taylor store.
Mother is facing immediate arrest for failure to appear regarding this matter.

- Then of course we know that the two sons combined to kill four people
(3 Americans & a Chinese exchange student), severely injure 100 plus other people,
carjacked another victim and only let him live when he escaped.
Now we have the two pathetic parents who have returned to Russia
and are claiming that their poor sons are innocent
and are being framed by the same American government
that allowed for their pathetic existence the past 12 plus years.

When are we going to put a stop to this madness?
Please pass this on and commit to getting involved in the 2014 election process.

Playing Catch up....

Once again it seems I've been MIA for a bit....
I was lucky enough to catch a head cold or something that affected my voice, meaning I haven't had one since the day after Mother's Day!  No we didn't do any whooping or hollering, if we had at least I'd have a reason why.
 
We went over to B&T's for a wonderful
 BBQ for Mother's Day/C&I's Birthday.
C had spent the prior week with them so it was good to see him.
More Birthday/Mother's Day surprises were waiting.
 Love the colors!
 Beautiful Anthurium
 Such pretty jewel tones
 some candy! My fave Turtles ;)
 Tanya made this gorgeous Dragonfly.
I have it having in the Living Room window
and when the sun comes through...it's breathtaking!
A box full of stamps and even an embossing gun! 
 
We took our newest addition with us.
 Yes, we adopted this cutie named Bella from the shelter.
She is 3 yrs old and was house trained...always a big plus :)
After introducing Katie to others, Katie picked Bella .
Katie can be pretty picky when it comes to siblings,
but she and Bella got along just fine....
 
A few days later B&T went to the shelter and found Chewie!
I now have a Grandson Furbaby!
He's 10 months old and a Chow Lab mix.
Very calm for still being a puppy
and what a sweet ball of fur! 
B&T came up this weekend so we could meet him.
His sister's Carly and Lily are enjoying him immensely.
 
Was wishing I was feeling better.
Seems I have slept the week and
weekend away - very frustrating.
 
Yeah, I try to talk a little squeaks come out.
Wouldn't you know I've had tons of business phone calls
to make last week and this week. Last week no one could understand me. Hoping they can this week!!
 
Better photos of Bella to come, along with our adventures with her....Yes, there were adventures the second and third day of being  home with this little Houdini!!
