Yes they do! A very talented group!

BTW, were you at McGuire AFB and what years were you there?

maybe the parents had heard the Fleetwood Mac tune too many times on the radio airwaves?

Some US radio stations have had and still have a penchant for over-playing songs to the point of .... ugh, not again.
No doubt commercial radio has a playlist of maybe 60 songs they play during the week. That was part of the downfall of all "Smooth Jazz" formats. Those folks never strayed into bebop, fusion, or the atonal movements.

woooweee... Mexican lunch fare and I'm still stuffed, nearly 2 hours from the end of it. Flautas charras of shredded beef that seems portioned for lunch time, rather than dinner time. But still, with the lettuce, tomato slice, sour cream, guacamole, fried rice, and re-fried beans ....

For others reading, that 4 years was my active-duty service obligation. Prior to my enlistment, and after the active duty term, was my reserve portion of my 6 year obligation according to the rules then. I enlisted to dodge the draft -- already being married (but not yet a parent).

Boomer ... yes, my only permanent duty assignment was at McGuire AFB. Never volunteered for any TDY (temporary tours) assignments, and wasn't chosen for any. My time there was from the autumn of '69 to May 1, 1973. About 4 or 5 weeks at the end of my duty, I lived in barracks as my wife, child, and "stuff" were back in Indiana. Other than when I first arrived there, my wife and I lived in an apartment complex off-base. Our POWs in Vietnam were released and came home in the last month of my active duty.

And you?

OH, before the 'suits' caused the change to segmented FM radio formats, like they had done so before with early AM radio to "top 40" and "subdued" the pioneer DJs......

so very good memories of FM radio listening pleasure with the "free-form" WMMR out of Philly back in the day. Also, at least during hours I was listening, the few commercials were done in almost a whisper.

There was a very good documentary I saw in recent months on PBS about rock radio; from early AM rock&roll days to the present including the satellite radio stations that bring back the flavor of the olden days.

And you?
1973 thru 1996. Griffiss AFB, NY; Robins AFB, Ga ; Kadena AB, Japan. That was my active years. The rest at Rickenbacker ANGB, OH as an active duty guard person. 80 days in Southeast Asia flying missions in Cambodia and Laos in 1974. The rest I think you know! We could chat a long time over some adult beverages.

Thank you for sharing.

Cool! and t/y too. Due to a memory fail, the timeline would be amended to sometime in early Spring '70 for being ordered to McGuire. I forgot how long my "A.I.T" training was.

Yeah, WMMR has a strong signal but not that strong! Glad you enjoyed it -- whichever format and era.

I don't follow about Kevin Bacon. ribbit!

<quoted text>Good morning El. He watch the vice presidents debate last night. Bidden was so very rude with his laughing and mugging and constant interruptions. Great TV though ; )
Thought they both did quite a bit of actually. In the first one Obama was reserved and while Romney was more forceful, they both seemed to take the debate far more seriously than Biden & Ryan - they were both smirking and chuckling and interrupting each other -- I found it rather rude.

<quoted text>I must amend the last a bit.

In more recent years, more and more states have laws that address the domestic violence issues, and the communities police must get involved with a mandatory arrest of one party or the other, or both.
Be that as it may, the republicans are stalling the renewal of the landmark Violence Against Women Act. Apparently LGBT, immigrant women, and tribal victims are not worthy of protection.

Only a republican!!! Misogynistic hypocrites.

Abortion is only OK when it's the republican's mistress who is pregnant.....then it's an acceptable form of birth control.

Good morning, Lady El ... the couple I met meet at a secure location which has it's own name and is registered with the IRS and has it's own tax ID #(I've already checked it out) and is in close proximity to where my RW BFF lives ... they play all sorts of card games, domino games, Bunko, Farkle and various and assorted board games along with outings at the movie theater or casino trips such as we took ... a very lively group they are ... I felt honored they liked me and my personality to ask me to join their group ... Obviously, I would be the baby of the group but I've always hung out with individuals older than I ... As I said, it's a non-profit organization much like the organization that I'm the co-chairman of which is equivalent to (vice-president) but we call it co-chairman ... we're not as active as this group is but maybe I can get some ideas from the new group I'm thinking of visiting ... sounds like fun to me ...
So, you chose the microwave over the iphone ... good choice, less time in the kitchen works for me, ha! The iphones are over-rated anyway ... my smart-phone is smarter than me and I don't think I like that, haha ...
About the casinos, I've been to Atlantic City back in the 70s a few times, not sure who owned them back them, been to Gulfpost, Mississippi, Coushatta Louisiana and to the one in Choctaw, Oklahoma ... Now, for sure the Choctaw Casino is owned by the Indians and I suspect the others are as well, but do not quote me on that ... I pretty much suspect it, though!... Nonetheless, it's pretty much fun and I like to visit them ...
The baseball playoffs are on ... They've been running late ... The Yankees and Orioles game was well into extra innings (13) last night and tied and FOUR hours when I finally fell asleep ... IDK who won but I certainly hope it was the Orioles!... Justin Verlander was pitching for Detroit against the Oakland A's and were up 2-0 and I hope Detroit won that game ... so much baseball and not enough channels ...
NO COMMENT re: the DEBATE between Biden and Ryan ...
It's to be 86 today and it's been rather pleasant around here ... My lantana is fully bloomed and beautiful ... Jax is eating the pomegranate falling off the trees and my amaryllis is sprouting some new leaves for some Christmas blooms, hopefully ...
Reading the latest 2012 Lee Child book, A Wanted Man ...
Taking Jax to the vet for his annual check up ... PoohBear, bless his heart, took to an upper respirator infection ... My live-in pet sitter had the presence of mind to take him to the vet, called me at the casino and I gave her my credit card number to pay for his care and anti-biotics and steroids ... He's not coughing as bad as she said he was ... Thanks goodness she knows my pup and thank goodness he's getting better. That's all. Love FC
Good Morning Flower.....got a little time this morning before my appointment for my 'flu jab....put your lovely message here to one side last night until dinner was over and I could reply in kind, then got engrossed in the match...England v San Marino...then it was just too late to function! How is Pooh Bear this morning? I agree, your dog sitter is really on the ball, that's what being a responsible sitter isw all about, but thank goodness she got him to the Vets in good time. Hope it's good news on Jax too, let me know how they go on won't ya?!
Boardwalk Empire this evening. YO! Last week's episode was a little tame I thought, but that's the beauty of it, you are just expecting something really bad to happen until those credits come up at the end....never known an hour go so fast. Was watching a programme the other night and who should pop up but Gyp, as a doctor, he is flavour of the month at the moment apparently. Will do my best to fill you in with episode 3.

Good afternoon El! Almost tea time there?
The whole group has a personality that I have never seen exhibited by famous people! They will sit and chat after a performance with a q&a that is fantastic!!
Rhiannon actually graduated from a university here in Ohio. Her major, obviously music, with an opera background.
'Afternoon Boomer, another day, another tea-time, lol.
Nice when you can say that about a group, I knew a few 'pop-stars'
back in the day, the nicest I ever met was Joe Brown, originally
Joe Brown and The Bruvvers, one of the nicest, genuine people on the
face of the earth. Very unassuming.

Watched a programme on PBS last night which was fascinating, about
a group of your predessors who were captured and held POW, and how they
formed a democracy amongst themselves in ordedr not to lose sight of who they were. It shown a former POW meeting the son of an airman he was with during this period,(1944), the son was an artist and presented his father's friend with a painting of his father....it was very moving but a happy event. First time I have watched PBS, excellent channel.

I hope you keep us informed about your experiences and variety of them with your new microwave with all it's capabilties!
Indeed, energy usage savings should result.
My microwave is large in dimensions, one of the items doled to me when divorced. It was a wedding present from father-in-saw from the long-defunct Montgomery Ward department store. Subsequently I purchased a toaster oven.
With the girls in visitation residence, or for company, I oft used the regular oven. For just me, the smaller appliances are the ticket.
'Afternoon Cuz Luke....will do..being 1000W it cooks quickly, so requires much less time than my old one. I will be making a chicken,
leek and potato gratin tomorrow using it, looks a doddle on the video.
The video I posted btw, was of a lady demonstrating making a 'cake in a cup'..not unlike the recipe which FISHERMAN kindly posted a while ago, I made the chocolate version, unfortunately it rose rather quickly and the resulting mess was a sight to behold....:)
It will be much more useful to me than the Kindle I was toying with getting for all that.
I made mention of a prog I viewed last night, to Boomer, of course your predessessors(sp) also, very interesting and heartwarming actually.
