new pics

i have added a few new pics here.
tehy are the top 4 and bottom 2.


For those that care to know I work at Titan Wheel. A major producer of off road wheels for Construction military and farm tractors.

At work I got bumped from my job in the Rim line department, so I did the natural thing and bumped someone else in another department. I transferred to the Wheel assembly Dept. here I run a press that pushes the centers into the rims before they get welded…. I know very exciting… yeah. But hey I get 10 our days and my weekends off.

The road you travel.

It’s been quite a time since I posted anything of relevance.
This is mostly because of my son, or me spending a lot of time between work and my son, it is very hectic.

Let me bring you up to date.

Colton is now 10 weeks old, he has had his trials already.
We had to switch him from breast mil to a special formula. After some weeks his fussiness seemed not normal, so we went to a doctor and found out that Colton was allergic to the bovine hormones in Jessie’s breast milk, we switched to a special formula that contains no bovine proteins or hormones.
So far so good, Colton has taken to the new formula, but there was something else that bothered us.
Colton was born 5 weeks early, but health wise everything seemed ok.
When he sleep or ate, he kept make in a noise, something like a wheezing noise but not as pronounced. Last week Jessie took him to a doctor and again we found a new problem, apparently he has some excess membrane over his voicebox that is interfering with his breathing, so next week we are taking him to Iowa City to get an exam.
From what the local doc has said they can scrape or cute the excess membrane away and that should clear it up.
So we shall see.

Nukes from china

A major General in the PLA has made a rather bold statement.
Pretty much it boils down to this, if America interferes with the much expected invasion of Taiwan, by use of military arms, China will respond with nuclear weapons.

On the face of it that is rather scary. Would China use nukes in a firsts strike against the US, over Tiwan?...................... maybe....but.
This appears to be more posturing, Chinese military and government officials have made bold statements like this before.
What this statement is, is a attempt to stir US Intel assets and planners, and see how we react, to this overly bold statement, oh and to play up the bad American line for the home audience.

But there is a problem with this, the Chinese know that if the right political conditions are met such statements could be used to sway the politician here in the US away Freon interference in the a Chinese-Taiwan war.
And i must add, the Chinese do not think like we do on such matter. They could be Serious, and be willing to take a bloody nose from the US, in exchange for the most likely negative reaction from the world body to a US use of nuclear weapons.

Being a father is .....busy

Its been 4 weeks since my son was born, between work, my son and the myriad things i have to do i have had very little time for blogging.

So much has happened in the world in those 4 weeks, too much for me to condense into a post.

So here are some quick hits.

Mother and baby are doing fine, he still wants to stay awake at night but we are slowly wearing him down, or is he wearing us down.... not sure yet....

Our 2 boxers are totally thrilled with this new addition, one or the other sleeps on the floor of the baby room every night. they constantly keep a eye on him and follow everywhere we go with him, they also are very leery when people they don't know hold him.
I see that my son is gonna have 2 big hairy buddies for a good part of his young life.

My wife And I, are doing fine,not getting much sleep, but we are managing to space it out so we can get some work some and take care of our son. staying up to 3-4 AM has gotten normal.
Having a week off from work has helped a quite a bit, but next week will be hell.

The terrorist bombings in England........................., my wife woke me up that morning and told me what happened, all i could mumble was , Fucking savage bastereds...
There is no way that we can find a accommodation or middle ground with these people, as the left and their fellow travelers need to learn that . The fascists,want total control of everything and will not stop till they win or are dead, I prefer dead.

The Supreme Court,Oh boy is this gonna be a dog fight, with O'Connor leaving and Rehnquist appearing to be leaving, G. Bush has a golden opportunity to push the Supreme Court back to a costliest frame of mind instead of the activist liberal frame of mind it has now.
As long as he don't wimp out and try to appease the left and play Mr. nice Guy....

I do have a few new books in the list to read, currently i am reading John Keegan's "World War 1", next in the list is Ben Bova's "Saturn" followed by Harold Coyle's "They are soldiers"
In some of my off time i have been reading the Keegan book, or working in the garage, building new work table, and doing the few Honey-Do jobs around the house, but t is hard to complete a task with 4 week old demanding attention all the time...LOL
Damm hes cute.

Ill post some new pics soon.
That is all for now...
