UGH my kids' new computer has 8, and it took me literally about 15 minutes to figure out how to turn the darn thing off! Of course, the kids had it all figured out in no time.  ha2ha
That happened to me too! ha2ha! I was literally yelling at the thing trying to shut it off!

Yes, they did a fine job of hiding the power button.

I've been following your and Kelley's (and others') posts in the Genealogy thread with a lot of interest.

You guys won't believe what I found the other night. A newspaper in Springfield Missouri had an article on their website about a man's military service. He was on the crew of a B-24 that my dad piloted! He mentioned Daddy by name, which was how I found it. I sent the author my contact info and she called him and got voicemail but will pass it on to him when he calls back. He's 93 years old and very sharp. I hope he calls me.

Wow, B-24 was a great plane. Took a lot of stamina to fly one though.
I worked with a guy that flew one, Steve Mayciak(?) in the 90's and boy did he have some stories. He flew on the first Ploesti raid and survived and later in Europe flew in actor Jimmy Stewarts outfit.
Do you have any pictures?

That is a nice feeling. I'll need to do that soon, and vacuum the coils. We found out the hard way one Christmas Eve that too much dog hair on them can seriously impair the fridge's ability to cool.  roll:)

True, That was done not too long ago. The oven is on clean mode now! It needs it bad. It's a good weekend to get the domestic stuff done as not much else is going on.

Hang in there, KE. Maybe they are just having trouble getting ahold of one of your references.
