Oh, have you met anyone from the Unification Church yet?

 

How would I tell? Is it that obvious?

 

Honestly, I'm not sure. All I know is that the Unification Church (Rev. Moon) owns one or two of the fish processing plants there in Kodiak and brings in many, many workers. The church, I believe, also owns boats and land. Rev Moon used to come to Kodiak fairly frequently, along with large tour groups of favored church members and donors. Residents were, well, less than thrilled :lol .

What's that red thing in the middle of the picture? Helicopter? I can't tell.

 

yep - a dolphin (they are cg orange)

Had one flying around the neighborhood quite a bit yesterday (test flights after repair)

 

Actually, it is a Dauphin (French). It has a distinctive high pitched hum from the tail rotor because it is encased in the tail. A lot of municipalities use them for life-flights and police copters as well.

It is a variant of the French-built Dauphin.

The SA 366 G1 Dauphin version was selected by the USCG in the early 1980s as its new short range recovery air-sea rescue helicopter and given the designation HH-65A Dolphin. In order to comply with U.S. regulations, engineering changes were required. So it isn't actually a Dauphin, it really is a Dolphin.

Wow. Everyone calls the one here at the test center a Dauphin and it is painted the same way... maybe it was an early test bed then. Learned something new today :)

Pictures are beautiful, but so cold and lonely looking. Have you made any friends there yet? :grouphug ...because I'd need that if I were where you are.

I was wondering if this was something like the Church of Deliverance that BF and I passed in and out of our vacation place in Berkeley Springs, WV. It's hard not to give a chuckle at a church with that name being in WV, but it was the display they had hanging off of trees on the side of the road that was killer. We had meant to take a picture and now I'm really sad that we didn't. But there was one sign with a skeleton painted on it and some phrases about hell if that gives you the gist. I was honestly a little scared.

:lol Too funny. My DH and I were going camping last month, and drove past the Church of Cod. I think it may have been inspired by Ray Troll's art:

:lol Trudy I guess it could be worse. I go to the library and just pull random mysteries off the shelf. The one I am reading now is "Moving is Murder" by Sara Rosett...about an Air Force wife that trips across a dead body before she has even unpacked her "Open First" box...

I miss Home Depot.

It took me TEN minutes to check out with 2 items... a bifold door track and a 8' piece of 1x2.

They couldn't find either item in the computer and it took 10 minutes to get it figured out. Got the 1x2 for 20 cents :lol Not so lucky on the door track.

 

I'm afraid to go back there to find stuff I need to fix the gate. It is all hiding behind the store, so I can't go out there and play around with it to see what I need - I see that gate taking a few trips...

 

Did the fishes make the trip intact? :goodluck

Yep, they did - they are now back in their 5 gallon tank (well, the plecos are still sharing the 5 gallon). I put the 65 gallon together on Wednesday, now to start getting that cycled and figure out what goes in it.

took less time to install the stupid door (even after hunting down the snips and snipping the track to make it fit) than it did to pay for the stupid track!

Owner is stationed in Ohio so a little hard for him to check on his house.

 

The pictures of Adak and Mt Shishalden were from Jeff that he took.

But yes, if email is down, then I can have the Red Cross get in touch with the boat for true emergencies.

I need a new scrub brush after scrubbing the entry floor :lol

before (left) the dirt was ground into any textured area

after (right) dirt is gone :)

 

floor.jpg

 

That brings back an unpleasant memory. At our last house I thought we had a taupe patterned floor. Closer examination showed the floor was deeply textured and needed a good scrubbing. It needed two days of two fisted work but I finally found a BEIGE patterned floor! :lol:lol:lol

 

Your landlord has no idea what a gem he has in you....
