Morning Lineup – November 13

Tuesday Morning – Odds 'n' Ends

I received an interesting comment from one of our Facebook friends yesterday about the Bunn-O-Matic that is found on the stage set for the Chicago Fire tv show.  Steve P. passes along that the coffee maker is more than a prop, but is truly "in service" all day to be used by whoever is around.  He knows because he experienced the novelty of having a cuppa from that very same machine.  That production crew knows how to keep their employees happy!

Recently I have become aware of two blogs, one new and one that's been around a while, that I'd like to point out to you.  The older one has the curious title of Not Trained, But We Try Hard and has been online for nearly four years.  It's more of a personal diary approach to communicating activites and thoughts relating to fire stuff  in northern Indiana.  He posts regularly too, and that's one of my plus points for blog reading.  So CLICK HERE and sample the work.

The new blog comes from the same folks who give us the excellent Wildfire Today website.  They have introduced what they call their sister site, Fire Aviation.  This doesn't surprise me at all because webmaster Bill Gabbert obviously enjoys following and writing about wildfire aircraft and their activities, and this is the natural ourgrowth from that.  If you want a sample of what's in store, just CLICK HERE and get a good look at the excellent photo of a super-tanker.  Go ahead, do it now.  I'll wait. 

After you've checked that out, CLICK HERE to read and bookmark the new website.

I'm going to be adding both of them to my blog list today.  Good stuff.   Now let's do our good stuff and get this equipment checked out while I keep the Bunn-O-Matic tradition alive.  See you back in the day room in a little while where we can review a video.
