    No Nursin Home for ME

    They should put a cap on Advertising for the healthcare industry. This would bring down costs dramatically. Word of mouth has always traveled faster and more efficently than any Madison ave campaign. I like the idea of a pool though.

    M29 weasel/doodlebug

    The M-29 Weasel was a almost jeep like in its size and it was amphibious. The crocodile was a full fleged tank I think Cromwells and Matilda's were the most common types.

    P-38 and B-17

    The USN F7F Tigercat . The torque was a problem for carrier based aircraft and thats one of the ways they worked to counterbalance it. I heard that the Yankee Airforce had a tragic fire. Was that from you guys? If not could you fill us in on the details ? The Pilot of that Craft didn't use his trim tab to help?
