    Just like the russkies do. Destroy the supply lines and the army stops. Good call by the Ukrainians. Give us more.

    They did some damage to the plant and another lower plant and damage to the power grid lines men will be hard at work running by passes. After the cedar fire the power companies had to run miles of insulated cable to reconnect the lines many were running generators for months. Generator sales were at an all time high

    Besides the ongoing shooting match between Russian and the Ukraine, I watched the series "1883". It's really worth the watch-10 episodes so if you wanted, you could see the whole thing in a day. The Director and Producer tried their best to be historically correct and mostly succeeded. They made a few errors but all in all it is a great production. Great writing, great acting, great directing, etc. I consider it the best TV Western since "Lonesome Dove".

    Watched craziest landings on YouTube showed a midsize commercial jet landing and just near touch down it ricks side to side from violent wind it rolls left then the right wing flexs down like wow thought it would snap off never seen a wing do that then it rolls completely over and levels and touches down like I bet the pilots and everyonr messed their underwear. The it showed a 747 do the same like hell I didn't think it would stay up when it rolled over but it made it. Had some really bad small aircraft landings like running off one the wind was so bad he made it down but the wind blew the plane over bad thing about small planes in elcajon they had winds over a hundred and a lot of small planes got wrecked as well as a number of commercial trucks that got cited for not laying over after a wind alert was posted. Alpine one if the last towns before the long trek to El central was packed with trucks all over parked on the highway sidings at motels on side streets store parking lots. I'm sure the restaurants loved the extra business. Had that mig 29 that burst into flames during landing and the pilot ejected they said it was due to an engine failur. Had that jet blue that made an emergency landing at lax. The nose gear got stuck or the wheel at a 90 degree angle they made a good landing but ground the wheel in half the cause was poor maintenance the installed part of the gear upside down. Like hell how does that happen like don't they have Manuel's for that. In another an engine blew because of a improperly installed oil seal it leaked and the oil burned and caused the engine to catch fire and fail. So many bad repairs or improper parts and worse planes crashing from counterfeit parts I hope those guys got life for all those killed because they got greedy like planes get old and are dismantled for parts all the time but they got cheap counterfeit Chinese parts and counterfeit FAA certs they even caught a couple of companies that were selling counterfeit certs and papers.hope they got life too. Counterfeit parts caused the crash of a commuter turbo when the tail bolts snapped as they were not the right grade if metal. They were able to figure it out as the data recorded also included vibration data. The stuff they can monitor and record these days. The investigation lead to a my three year sting operation into counterfeit aircraft parts leading to the aresst of over three thousand people and the seizure of a number of businesses. May they rot in hell for their greed. I think those Alaskan officers got away light only five years for almost eighty deaths because they cut corners on maintenance to save money like how much did they save after all the multi million law suits after the investigation. And the guy who sued after trying to blow the whistle and was laid off for trying to warn people and then failed then six months later the crash proven to be due to poor maintenance and the guy had his personal files showing he ordered replacement of the failed part but a supervisor superceded him and ordered the plane back in service. Those guys at alaska are lucky if that was my family on that plane I'd got nuts on them and plaster anti propaganda against their business and pushed for more punishment on company officers. We are so laced on white collar crime but a worker they throw the book at. Except with Enron I think they got off because too many people in government invested with them.

    Restoring a T-34? How about restoring a Tiger I? Yay Down Under! Not in running condition as they have to get the suspension system. Slightly over 1 hour long.

    The complete Kenny Everett show incl X-mas specials 1978-1981. Loved it. Got Benny Hill so it's left to get the Paul Hogan show boxes.
    I got space station Alpha and six million dollar man. Sheriff McCloud, Kojak, Cannon, Hill Street Blues, Magnum, the Triffids, and loads more.
    Where are you Paul Hogan show. In Youtube?

    That’s a sweet collection…Loved Hot Gossip on KEVS…Benny Hill is a must…There should be plenty of skits of Hoges on YouTube, but the whole show is better. I’m into sci fi too…so recommend Dr Who Pertwee and Baker series (or on Britbox I think…or daily motion on the net) And Blake’s 7…

    What a dreck of a war film. It wasn't too bad at first, then it descended into some of the most tired and worn-out tropes you find in war films. By the time it finished, I wanted my hour + back.

    Was watching this the other day. I think it was pretty good for a low Budget war movie.

    Director's cut means it includes footage that was not in the original theatrical/commercial release. Scenes the director liked but were cut, usually to keep the film to a reasonable length.
