A man was walking along a California beach and stumbled across an old lamp. He picked it up and rubbed it and out popped a genie.

The genie said "OK, OK. You released me from the lamp blah, blah, blah... This is the fourth time this month and I'm getting a little sick of these wishes so you can forget about three. You only get one wish!"

The man sat and thought about it for a while and said, "I've always wanted to go to Hawaii but I'm scared to fly and I get very seasick. Could you build me a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over there to visit?"

The genie laughed and said, "That's impossible! Think of the logistics of that. How would the supports ever reach the bottom of the Pacific?

Think of how much concrete, how much steel!! No. Think of another wish."

The man said OK and tried to think of a really good wish. Finally, he said, "I've been married and divorced four times. My wives always said that I don't care and that I'm insensitive. So, I wish that I could understand women...know how they feel inside and what they're thinking when they give me the silent treatment to know why they're crying, to know what they really want when they say 'nothing' to know how to make them truly happy."

The genie said, "You want that bridge two lanes or four?"

USMC and USN Rules of Engagement
Basic Laws of Combat
1. You are not superman.
2. Suppressive fires -- won't.
3. If it's stupid but works, it isn't stupid.
4. Don't look conspicuous -- it draws fire.
5. When in doubt, empty the magazine.
6. Never share a fighting hole with anyone braver than you are.
7. Never forget your weapon was made by the lowest bidder.
8. If your attack is going really well, it's an ambush.
9. No plan survives the first contact intact.
10. All five second grenade fuses will burn down in three seconds.
11. Try to look unimportant, because the bad guys may be low on ammo.
12. If you are forward of your position, the artillery will fall short.
13. The enemy diversion you are ignoring is the main attack.
14. The important things are always simple.
15. The simple things are always hard.
16. The easy way is always mined.
17. If you are short of everything except enemy, you are in combat.
18. When you have secured an area, don't forget to tell the enemy.
19. Incoming fire has the right-of-way.
20. No combat ready unit has ever passed inspection.
21. If the enemy is in range, so are you.
22. Beer math: 37 men times 2 beers each equals 49 cases.
23. Body count math: 3 bad guys plus 1 probable plus 2 pigs = 37 enemy killed in action.
24. Friendly fire - isn't.
25. Things that must be together to work usually can't be shipped together.
26. Radios will fail as soon as you need fire support desperately.
27. Anything you do can get you shot -- including doing nothing.
28. If you make it too tough for the enemy to get in you can't get out.
29. Tracers work BOTH ways.
30. The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.
31. If you take more than your fair share of objectives, you will have more than your fair share to take.

Walking Again

Posted by John P. on March 18, 2014 at 8:00am 4 Comments

My craniotomy to remove my AVM was early in the first month of the year, but at first I could not walk at all and

many who had the same operation I am sure had the same

problem. After two months in the hospital I was able to
