For Christian American readers of this blog:

I wish to incite all Christians to rise up and take back the United States of America with all of God's manifold blessings. We want the free allowance of the Bible and prayers allowed again in schools, halls of justice, and all governing bodies. We don't seek a theocracy until Jesus returns to earth because all men are weak and power corrupts the very best of them.
We want to be a kinder and gentler people without slavery or condescension to any.

The world seems to be in a time of discontent among the populace. Christians should not fear. God is Love, shown best through Jesus Christ. God is still in control. All Glory to our Creator and to our God!

A favorite quote from my good friend, Jack Plymale, which I appreciate:

"Wars are planned by old men,in council rooms apart. They plan for greater armament, they map the battle chart, but: where sightless eyes stare out, beyond life's vanished joys, I've noticed,somehow, all the dead and mamed are hardly more than boys(Grantland Rice per our mutual friend, Sarah Rapp)."

Thanks Jack!

I must admit that I do not check authenticity of my posts. If anyone can tell me of a non-biased arbitrator, I will attempt to do so more regularly. I know of no such arbitrator for the internet.

 Pilot notes and Mechanic answers . . . Thx Pilots Jack H and Paul C!  Funny!

Just in case you needed a laugh:Remember it takes a college degree to fly a plane, but only a high school diploma to fix one; that's reassurance to those of us who fly routinely. 
After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a 'gripe sheet,' which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft.
The mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight. 
Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humor. Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by UPS pilots (marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by maintenance engineers. 
By the way, UPS is the only major airline that has never, ever, had an accident.... 

P: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement. 
S: Almost replaced left inside main tire. 
P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough. 
S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft. 
P: Something loose in cockpit 
S: Something tightened in cockpit 
P: Dead bugs on windshield. 
S: Live bugs on back-order. 
P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute descent 
S: Cannot reproduce problem on ground. 
P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear. 
S: Evidence removed. 
P: DME volume unbelievably loud. 
S: DME volume set to more believable level. 
P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick. 
S: That's what friction locks are for. 
P: IFF inoperative in OFF mode. 
S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode. 
P: Suspected crack in windshield. 
S: Suspect you're right. 
P: Number 3 engine missing. 
S: Engine found on right wing after brief search 
P: Aircraft handles funny. (I love this one!) 
S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right and be serious. 
P: Target radar hums. 
S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics. 
P: Mouse in cockpit. 
S: Cat installed. 
And the best one for last
P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer. 
S: Took hammer away from the midget
