Do you ...EBay?

Surfing through EBay on a regular basis, I found something that I did not know existed. A Cruise book for USS Saratoga for her Desert Shield/Storm involvement. Of course I got all excited and patiently waited the few days left on the auction. As the final day of the auction arrived, I prepared to send my salvo of a bid to win this book. Fox 1! My bid was sent and it was the highest at that moment.



30 seconds left on the auction.....20.....oh no, my winning bid was no longer the… Continue

A little Humor

Only we sailors can relate to the "Ricky's Tour" cartoon. I found this one while catching up on my "All Hands" magazine (in PDF format) today. The only thing missing in the image would be the loud sounds of the flight deck that one would experience while deployed on an Aircraft Carrier.…

Model RailRoad Hobby- Navy Freight Cars

One of my hobbies that is on the back burner but I do still read about it, is Model RailRoading. I was surfing EBay for military stuff and came across Box Cars with Navy Ships listed on the side. After Winning the USS Hornet Box Car, the seller informed me of a Pearl Harbor set that was released.



Unfortunately, I did not know about this and missed out on Freight Car Set #1. But I wanted to share among all of you that reservations are being taken for set #2. You can also buy other… Continue

The Berkeley City Council drew a deluge of criticism after voting two weeks ago to send a letter to a downtown… Continue
