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. ;-)

It seems that Aussie birds are screaming up the charts here these days.

Rare Australian birdsong is flying up the charts, beating pop stars and Christmas favorites.

From treetops to top of the pop charts.

Soaring past big names like Taylor Swift and Michael Buble, an album featuring 53 of Australia’s most endangered birds has flown to No. 3 in the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) album chart since its release on Dec. 3.

“Songs of Disappearance,” featuring, among others, the Indian Ocean Red-tailed Tropicbird and the Eastern Grey Plover, was beaten only by the British superstars Adele and Ed Sheeran.

The 54-track album was created to coincide with the release of a book, “The Action Plan for Australian Birds,” by Charles Darwin University (CDU) and BirdLife Australia.

“The album is a way to get people to appreciate that this is what we’re likely to lose unless we do something about it,” the book’s editor, Stephen Garnett, a professor at CDU and an environmental scientist, told NBC news Friday.

“It really touches the hearts of people.”

The album was produced by CDU doctoral candidate Anthony Albrecht, who said the tracks feature some of the most rarely heard sounds in Australian nature....
Cheers.
