A friend posted a story on face book regarding a mutual Navy acquaintance called +1.  Every story you had, he had one better.  Now I'm a bit nostalgic for times I actually quite hated.  Valuable experience regardless but by the time I had met +1 I was ready to get out.   Goodtimes though.

We did actually have two of those guys, the joke was that if you put them in a room the conversation would never end.


In other news, 17 month old ah.hell junior got his hands on a jalepeno over the weekend.  He only bit of a chunk of the rind and suffered no ill effects.  Still, pretty funny to look over and see him happily munching on a chili pepper.

I work with an Irish American guy that has an Irish flag on his office door.  His office is next to an Indian American guy from Florida's office.  I kind of want to buy the Indian American guy a City of Miami Flag for his office.  It sorta looks like the Indian Flag.  Horizontal orange, white and green bars with a circle in the center of it.   This would be a joke at the expense of the Irish guy that probably only I would find funny.    It would probably come off as a bit racist and not be that funny so I don't think I'll even broach the subject with the Indian guy.

Edit, my wife chuckled at the suggestion, so it still may be racist but at least one other person thinks its funny.

It's a "regarding" email, so are they responding to your original inquiry?
