America on the decline?

According to Jon Stewart of 'The Daily Show', the answer is no. Proof? Look no further in his estimation than Jimmy Dean Chocolate Chip Pancakes & Sausage on a Stick. Evidently there is also a Blueberry flavor. I'm sorry, but can I just puke now or do I have to eat the sausage/pancake/blueberry contraption?

Thanks to Techspansion for a donation!

Techspansion donated a copy of their Visualhub software so that I could make DVD's of TV for my squadron's troops who are in Iraq. Nice work Tyler! I did have a minor technical issue, but I might have that solved. It stopped after a chapter decode but enabling the option for it to be 'nice' (Unix terminology) and keeping it minimized made it work the third time. It worked nicely, creating a DVD with 11 shows that even played on my Xbox.

Home Run Inn Pizza (frozen) review

ROCKS. This tastes like a neighborhood pizzeria pie. (Because it is.)

Why am I reviewing a frozen pizza? They've been around since 1947. They're doing something right. 'Swhy I bought the pizza. I have a general rule: if they've been cooking the same thing for 50+ years, I'd like a taste. Although White Castle doesn't do much for me....anyway.

The crust is crispy (made on the rack of the oven at about 400 degrees) but about 1/4" thick, the cheese a solid sheet, and it looks like it was handmade; slightly irregular. Bit of a beer/yeast taste to the crust like pizza hut. I might have added a slice of pepperoni or two. Aldi is selling a 1lb 2oz pepperoni for $3.99. Cheese was also available, but please, that's the 89 cent ones you buy for the kids. Check out

Butterfinger Innards

I've discovered that if you eat candy corn and Reese's Pieces in the correct ratio it tastes just like the inside of a Butterfinger. I think it's a combination of the candy shell, peanut butter, and the corn syrup in the candy corn. I don't consider the candy corn material pumpkins to be an acceptable substitute. While useful in their own right, it's not the same. That is all. Go about your business.

New Job

Well, I got my hand on the next rung of the ladder. Actually, I skipped the 'fly single pilot freight for a while' step, and I'm grateful for it. Ole Rob ain't getting any younger and the career needs a boost. I'll be starting class for Trans States Airlines flying a plane like you see above, the ERJ 145. I start class in St. Louis in January.
