    Some good stuff here.
    I've had to resist buying more books - I just don't have any more shelf space left, and no more room to put more shelves !!

    Sound advice. I've actually been clearing out books that I don't need. I know...I KNOW...that's totally sacrilegious but something had to give - I was running out of bookshelf space. I'm trying to be more focused in what I buy and retain...but it doesn't always work. :)

    Like everyone else know that pain and what to do, for now I have moved a bunch of my generic airplane books and books on ships and tanks into the basement in a dry clean area. It was so much nicer when they where all in the same room.

    Humm well I am officially in the dog house with the wife. She comes down stairs and says I thought all your books have come in the mail and I said yep should be. Then she goes I guess I can throw this in the garbage that's from Japan. Oh shit forgot about that one coming over a month ago. Then she goes what's this then. I have no idea other than from Amazon. I had forgot I had some books on pre-order before there release date. Oops. Guess I am going to have to take her out to a nice meal and a chic movie.

    On the bright side nice surprise for me. The Japanese bomber one really has some nice big clear shots and the engine one full of data and info on Japanese engines.

    So a McDonalds value meal followed by an ex-rental copy of "Army of Darkness" in the VCR/DVD (not BluRay...that's too fancy-schmancy!)??? :)

    First date I went on with the foolish lady who later became my wife was while on detachment for an exercise at a USAF base. The base theatre was showing Charlie Chaplin with Robert Downey Jr (which tells you how long ago it was!) and so I invited her to go to the movies with me. She agreed and off we went. Unbeknownst to us, the Chaplin movie had been taken down and Army of Darkness was showing. Undaunted we went in to watch it (since we knew nothing about it). She walked out after 30 mins. Not the most auspicious first date in the history of romance! :)
