    My wife, a high school econ teacher, is at Parris Island this week with the Marines for a teacher workshop, where they're basically giving them an idea of what boot camp is like. She texted me this picture earlier today:

    Way to go, auntiehill! It looks gorgeous....congrats!

    Re: B.J.

    Are they allowed to have loaded weapons while they're at Parris Island? I noticed the M4 carbine she's holding doesn't have an ammo clip. Do they actually get to fire any live ammunition?

    Ah, the SMAW rocket launcher. I think Bofors in Sweden manufactures those for the U.S. military under contract. If it's not Swedish then it's Israeli, but it's definitely an imported system.

    ^ Nice scenery!

    Saw this dump truck on the way to work this morning. Even the graffiti in this city is geeky! :D

    You look like a member of the Romanov or Hanover dynasty. Milk that for all it's worth. Start spreading rumors about your bloodline.

    At this point I'm just counting down the days until I'm allowed to trim that beastly thing. Less than two weeks to go!

    You are too cute! I have to say I prefer being able to see your face, though. ;)
