POSITRACTION: There are everyday heroes



Cheers For Good Deeds By Airlines to Rescue Stranded Travelers
Uplift Heroes by Good News Network - March 27, 2015

*** begin quote ***

Meanwhile on the West Coast, Miriam Thomas ran into a chain reaction of travel problems on her Delta flight from Vancouver, British Columbia, to a business meeting in California. Thomas faced delays and a diverted flight that landed in Portland, Oregon, before returning to Seattle for an unplanned overnight stay there.

The next morning, she got bumped from her rescheduled flight. Delta ticket agents couldn’t get her on another flight until the following day — too late to make her meeting. If that wasn’t complicated enough, a ticket glitch charged Thomas a second time for her rescheduled flight. It left her with no money and no ticket to get home.

That’s when Judy, working at the Alaskan Airlines counter, decided to help. She pulled out her own credit card and paid for a ticket to get Thomas back to Vancouver.

“She didn’t know me at all,” Thomas told News1130 in Vancouver.

But the goodwill didn’t stop at the ticket counter. Thomas says, “I was sitting up at the gate waiting for the flight and she came by asking me how I was and offered me money for coffee.”

This is just simple charity, or maybe it’s just having empathy, for our fellow humans?

"An SEP," he said, "is something that we can't see, or don't see, or our brain doesn't let us see, because we think that it's somebody else's problem. That's what SEP means. Somebody Else's Problem. The brain just edits it out, it's like a blind spot. If you look at it directly you won't see it unless you know precisely what it is. Your only hope is to catch it by surprise out of the corner of your eye.” The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Hope I can see SEPs and react like I like to think I would.


Life is so hard.

Chuck Adams' Secret Recipe for Muppet PC Boards (and lots of other homebrew tips)

*** begin quote ***

A few days ago I shared an e-mail from John N8RVE on his re-build of the SW-40.   John used a "Muppet" board, Muppet being a combination of Manhattan and Ugly techniques.  But there is nothing ugly about it really.  I joked in the title of the blog post that the beauty of this technique is almost enough to get a homebrewer to abandon the Manhattan technique.  Now, I was born on Manhattan island, and I went to Manhattan College, and I have been using the Manhattan technique for many years, so there is a lot of homebrew inertia at work here.   But that SW-40 looked good.  John mentioned that Chuck Adams K7QO has a series of YouTube videos on how to make Muppet boards.   This morning as I waited for the bands to open up, I  decided to take a look.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Maksomski' Family and others


Good Afternoon All,

An update on Nancy Maksomski' Family and and a couple of prayer requests.

Nancy's Dad, Dave, continues to do better and has even gotten back to doing some of his old stuff. A prayer of thanks would notbe remiss. Nancy's Mom is struggling with a major back issue that needs a very long and complicated surgery also requiring a nine month recovery period. We pray that whatever the decision, the MDs resolve the problem with as little invasive surgery as possible but that either way, Mrs. Maksomski's recovery is complete with no complications.

Nancy has asked for our prayers for a close Family Friend, Sr. Marcella Sullivan.

Sr. Marcella was just diagnosed with liver cancer. She has been given 3-6 months to live. Sister like many of the Presentation Sisters received a degree from Manhattan College in 1954. She taught the poor in New Orleans for many years and then in the 80's became a nurse and worked as a Pastoral Minister in Westchester County. She then served in her Community for many years. Please keep Sr. Marcella in your prayers as we pray not only for a recovery but that if that is not to be, we pray that the end of this good woman's journey be peaceful for her, her Family, Friends and Community. Thank you. God Bless.

MNEWS: Lymphoma can't silence 'voice of the Jaspers'



Lymphoma can't silence 'voice of the Jaspers'
By Sean Brennan
*** begin quote ***

Heimall, 25, the popular play-by-play man for Manhattan College basketball, is used to spending his winters sitting courtside at Draddy Gym, calling the game action and doing post-game interviews with Jaspers head coach Steve Masiello and the players he now considers his family.

But this winter didn’t exactly go according to Heimall’s game plan. A persistent sore throat in October that he could never shake eventually led to an appointment with a throat specialist and a date that will be forever seared into Heimall’s memory. It was Dec. 9, 2014.

“He takes one look at the back of my throat within three minutes he sits down and says, ‘You have Lymphoma.’” Heimall said from his hospital bed. A tumor was growing on his tonsil and he needed to have emergency surgery and begin treatment.

ENDNOTE: Conspiracy to hide crimes!



House panel passes bill banning IRS workers from using private email for official business
Published March 25, 2015
Associated Press

*** begin quote ***

WASHINGTON –  IRS workers would be prohibited from using private email to conduct official business under a bipartisan bill passed Wednesday by the House Ways and Means Committee.

The issue gained attention following revelations that Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton and Republican Jeb Bush used personal email addresses to conduct government business. Both are potential candidates for president in 2016.

"Events over the past month underscore the need to maintain transparent record keeping procedures for executive branch employees," said Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill. "IRS personnel should never use personal email addresses when conducting official government businesses, especially those who routinely handle sensitive taxpayer information."

*** end quote ***

Sorry, but any place I have ever worked INSISTED that company business be transacted on company systems.

If you, for some reason, need to use a different personal email (i.e., the corporate system was unavailable then copying you official account sufficed) and they reserved the right to inspect personal accounts used in this way.

Why did the politicians and bureaucrats NOT use the approved email?

Obviously, they were CONSPIRING to hide information from their “supervisors”.

Why are there indictments and investigations?


It’s like “taxes”; one rule for the privileged, and one for the rest of us!


A plague on all of them.
