Teresa made me keep my seabag out in the garage after the first run, it smelled bad to her LOL . ANyway thanks again for the awsome thread and to the webmaster who made it possible. Gotta love technology. Now you can post one of your awsome build threads. Later Chief

Thanks, Chief. Speaking of build threads, I've continued the "Scud fins in basswood" thread.

I echo that! I knew there was widespread poverty in India, but I didn't realize the depth and pervasiveness of it. Your "on-the-ground" photo-documentation and commentary illustrated them. There's a country that has high technology, nuclear weapons, long-range ballistic missiles, a bona fide space program (including a successful unmanned lunar mission), and yet tens of millions of beggars live on the streets--and most of the people apparently don't mind this state of affairs because the beggars are untouchables and other low-caste members who are unworthy of their sympathy...

Welcome Home and thanks for the insight to India.
I had to show a National Geographic video on the trains of India the other day.
After your stories, I said to the students how NG sugar coated the real India.

One question, what was the first thing you wanted to eat/drink when you got back?

Mission accomplished:
(2) Chicago-style hot dogs, (1) quart of unsweetened iced tea, (1) Dove bar!

I recently placed an order with Harbor Freight and one of the items was defective. At 1:30 PM here I called the customer service number which was answered by a gentleman with an Indian accent.
After resolving the problem, I asked him where he was located. His reply - New Delhi.
I then asked the temperature. His answer was 34 degrees (centigrade) -that's 93 degrees F.
At 11PM! In mid-May. I have trouble with Virginia summers, I don't think I could take it.
