re: A train carrying oil exploded in Texas. Too bad we don't have ways to pipe this around... - Ramblin Wreck
I had a conversation years ago with a refinery manager in California. He was telling me how the politicians forced a pipeline to the port from the facility to be shutdown because of environmental concerns in the event that the pipeline ever developed a leak. Instead they had to have 18 wheelers ru...

What is the smallest crowd at a college or pro game that you have been to? - Ramblin Wreck
When I lived in Beaumont, Texas I went to some Lamar basketball games. I went to a game when Pat Knight was their coach that probably only had 20 fans there. I remember the sound of the humming from the lights being louder than the action on the court....

re: FAA issues emergency directive ordering inspections of Boeing 777 engines - Ramblin Wreck
Guess I’ll buy a bunch more BA stock if it dips again the next two days. Seriously, buy anytime it is low. I’m far from being an expert or a Wall Street tycoon. However, I loaded up on airline stocks in March. I’m almost up 400% now on some of them (SAVE - Spirit). Boeing is up about 60% at...

re: Found my copy of the sports page from January 2, 1991 - Ramblin Wreck
It was a pretty strange season for most of the blue bloods. Like Florida, Oklahoma was also on probation. Ray Goff was only 33 years old when he was selected to be Georgia’s coach and it took him a couple of years to get his feet set. Thinking back, it seems amazing that in that era of old school ...

Found my copy of the sports page from January 2, 1991 - Ramblin Wreck
I use to keep newspapers following big events when I was a kid. I have the newspaper the day after the failed rescue attempt of the US hostages in Iran, the day after Reagan won in a landslide over Carter, the day after the hostages were released, and so on. I had already graduated from college wh...

re: Your first cell phone? When, where, why, and what? - Ramblin Wreck
1994, wife was expecting our first child and a guy I worked with had told me about having to pull off the road to deliver their child on the way to the hospital. I was pretty tight money wise, but wanted no part of that potential. I don’t remember the type of phone, but it actually took AA batteri...
