    It is Unanimous!

    Kiki-You sure been around from cook to bottle washer. I went to High Wycombe, RAF HQ outside London to explain to them how we detect a Soviet missile launch with IR satellites and then get dual phenomenolgy of the launch from the Brits Fylingsdale radars in the Yorkshire Moors.A great hospitable bunch gave me VIP treatment complete with Batman to shine shoes and place pot of hot tea outside my suite in morning.I was great throwing darts in the RAF pub and never lost a pint all night.Finally,one Brit after I drank about 8 pints of warm bitters asked:"Well,Yank what do you think of our beer?" I told him:"Frankly,I think you should pour it back in the horse." Great trip and to think I got paid for it. They showed me the command center HQ with a pit moving ships & aircraft across English Channel.I felt I was in WWII and could hear the Spitfires engaging the Fokkers and those Germans were real fokkers [old joke I won't repeat but the Brits loved it and my Yank humor].
