Yes Bernie.

When they put the streamline cladding on the Mallard it reduced the power needed to push it through the air.

It was an impressive gain in speed, despite little or no knowledge of streamlining now test facilities in those pre-WWII days.
It's good to be back amongst friends and colleagues

Winning. The nose is still running, but I'm starting to think it's just allergies after all.

Winning while getting ready to go sailing. I finally talked Allie in to giving it a try. :)

Posting from nice dry land, I can not swim.

I know how, but these days I don't trust my body to be able to save itself from drowning.

Are we in any danger of hitting the winning number while you're in transit?

I was the same way Julie, I loved to go see the grand parents on either side, I got to see more of moms side than dads though, dad had a falling out with his dad, I don't know what granddad and dad were in disagreement about really, but then grandmother passed away when I was 8 and granddad when I was 9, he died of loneliness I was told and was otherwise healthy for an 82 year old.
