Did they need a rocket scientist and lots of money to find this out?

We attempt to explain the 1979 Sears holiday catalog to a Millennial
Flashback Friday...
We expected to have to explain pop culture phenomena like disco balls and Mork. Surprisingly, Millennials seem well versed in "Nanu Nanu" and boogie fever. It was the humble trash compactor that demanded an in-depth explanation.

I always wondered why they stopped making the Grumman Albatross as they were a very handy aircraft. Well it seems that I wasn't the only 1 as an updated version is now going to be built down under in Darwin.

Amphibian Aerospace to set up Manufacturing in Darwin.

Amphibian Aerospace announced today that it has struck a deal with the Northern Territory government to set up a manufacturing plant in Darwin.

Sydney-based Amphibian Aerospace holds the type certificates for the HU-16 and G-111T variants of the Grumman Albatross.

The Darwin plant will manufacture G-111Ts fitted with modern avionics and Pratt & Whitney PT6A-67F turbo-prop engines....
Cheers.

Nice aircraft, kinda like a 2 engined spruce goose, aka: the "Hughes H4 Hercules" designed by both Howard Hughes and Henry J. Kaiser.

An old friend replied WTF to a post I made about starting a new job. I had to ask why they responded that way. She said that she thought it stood for Wow That's Fantastic.

Since this subject is frowned upon over in politics so I shall try bringing it up here.
Wednesday I had a turkey breast and Canadian bacon sandwich for lunch.
Yesterday I had a bacon burger with a side of onion rings at the neighborhood pub.
This evening I shall go back and have a large bowl of clam chowder with bacon bits.
Yes bacon is a subject for discussion.

And bacon flavoured crisps/snacks have no bacon...

Dread to wonder what the artificial ingredients might be...

Scrambled eggs on toasted raisin bread covered in crispy bacon sounds good right now. ;-)
