Mufflers and Other Rusty Things


If you are over 50, how long has it been since you changed a rusty muffler on your car? If you look back, it’s been quite a while. In fact, in the last 30 years I have not had ONE replaced, and I usually keep cars for years and over a hundred thousand miles.

Time Marches On

Do you remember the “Carterphone decision“? Probably not – most people don’t, unless you are or have been in the communications business. But this single action changed the world of communications for all of us!

For around a century the telephone company – primarily Bell Telephone & it’s long distance division, AT&T – affectionately (?) known as “Ma Bell” – had a monopoly of and owned all telephone equipment, at least in the United States. You could only use equipment provided by and installed by Bell. They even owned all the telephone wires and everything that interconnected them.

Majestic Shuttle – A Video Tribute

.

The Space Shuttle program is scheduled to end late this year. The replacement vehicle was scheduled for flight in 2015 BUT it appears that the Obama Administration has canceled those future plans and much of the funding for the continuation of many NASA projects, including the return to and colonization of the Moon.

As a tribute to the Shuttle program, a 31 year veteran engineer at the Kennedy Space Center, Dennis Lohaus, has written and recorded the song used in this video. It’s 7 minutes long but has some unique pictures and is a nice testimonial.
