    Great morning...

    Christmas tree is up, most of the lights are on the house (not all, too cold and windy!), chili is simmering (probably ready at around 12:30), and a stealth just buzzed our house!

    I live in West Omaha and our house is seemingly in the path of Offutt Air Force Base. About a dozen times per day there are huge planes that bank right above my house. This morning there was a different sound. I looked outside and saw a huge stealth banking right above the house! It was awe inspiring. I'm hoping it happens a few more times today, this time the camera and recorder will be ready...

    Not very stealthy if you saw it, right?

    I remember going to an airshow in Sioux City shortly after the Stealth Bomber was unveiled, and they had a place cordoned off with nothing inside of it, labeled "Stealth Bomber". Pretty funny.

    Chili sounds like a great thing today. If you want to turn it into a fantastic dip, slowly simmer in some flour water. It will thicken up and is fantastic on chips. The best game day snack of all.

    Does anyone want our extra couch, then I have room for a tree.

    I usually wait until the day after Thanksgiving to put up the tree.

    that does seem a tad early but, hey, if you're in the spirit, go for it. As for me, I don't even put one up.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
