I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!

Man watches 'Star Wars' for the first time

We hear of this sort of thing every now and then. Two possibilities exist.

1) This confirms the presence of aliens on Earth. What planet is he from?
2) Life can be supported under a rock or in a cave long enough for a human to reach maturity.

Well, at the very least, he's British.

Edit: 6/30/2007. There's a guy in my groundschool that claims he hasn't seen it. He's a pilot. How can you not have seen 'Star Wars' dude? I mean, surely every pilot on the planet wanted to blow up the Death Star at some point. Depending on the length and timing of your childhood, I mean. He's from Little Rock, but otherwise seemed normal enough.

Scary

Slow day, been a few slow weeks, but here's a good video for CRM and safety. Good lesson learned.

Sienna Elementary Writing Tardy Slips...


Fort Bend ISD.

On the next to last day of school.

Tomorrow is a half day, the LAST day. TODAY is, guess what, field day.

First Events? 0830: Watching a movie for my daughter, or a relay race for my son.

"Well, we still have to have it in the system."

The time? 0802. Two minutes late. To watch a movie or run a relay race that starts in 28 minutes.

Stupid. This teaches the kids that rules are all important and there is no adjustment for common sense. I know, discipline and all that, but every once in a great while, some things just don't matter.

And no, I wasn't the only parent complaining. Obviously, I also wasn't the only late person either.

TSA line this month

For those of you still pondering TSA, my line had 3 fewer days off this month BUT it had a lot of later shows and early arrivals, and no 4 day trips.

If you lived in St. Louis, it would be a pretty good line.

There was a 5 leg day and one MONSTER 7 leg day that was supposed to block at 7:59. Yeah, right. Like that STL-DAL-STL-DEN-STL day that is scheduled at 7:59. I've done that twice and it was 8:16 and 8:30ish IIRC.

Here it is: (my last day is going to be the 7th so I'll only fly the first two days of this). Copy and paste it into a text editor and it will look a lot better.

The Big News


Rob now works for ExpressJet! I will start class in Houston on June 11th. I hope to get Houston as a base right off, because, you know, I'm old. So I hopefully have the class seniority for that.

More commentary to follow.
