@OmSigDAVID,
One of my past gread students used the FAfchamp mechanism to eject "face sensors" to detect rockburst on an addit face in a mine. The deployment of sensors were all "shot " out of a multi barreled pvc "Potato cannon" and , in his thesis , he gave Fafchamp a high five for giving him the idea.

Nothing in this world is really new, even computers rely on Digfitally arranged shuttles that meted out cloth patterns in Jacquard looms during the Industrial Revolution

Yes; indeed, as I remember, the 1861 prototype of Richard Gatling, M.D.
was based upon his earlier individual seed planter.
The Belgians are good gun makers (FAL).
I wonder whether Gatling was aware of FAfchamp
in 1861, or ever.

Will u respond to my question to u
qua Operation Barbarosa, hereinbefore set forth ?

This Christmas has been quite subdued in our family. We lost one of the brothers this year and everyone made an encirclement about his widow so that her Christmas was not spent with only mourning. We had many get togethers with her at everyones house and so there was much travelling to various towns from ALlentown down to BAltimore. Id always feared the "visitation cycle" that was the remembered custom from my childhood . We always could count on someone having an accident .
This year our family accident toll was quite acceptable, it was zero .
I then realized why, in past years, the customs of driving between homes and partying there and all over, involved lots of PIVO and holiday schnapps. SO , when all the travellers are "festively saturated" the chances for auto accidents are hugely increased.
Now, as temperance has kept count with the ages of the surviving children and their larvae, (Even my son does not drink any more), the holiday travels were much safer. However, We are no fools and must I remind us all to keep vigilant because "the other guy" may be hammered and driving with a bead on you.

We played many parlor games and everyone joined in . The foods this yer involved a roast beef crown on Christmas, a seafood festival on Christmas eve, and 2 big SCoby ducks and kielbasi cornbread (Hillbilly polak style)stuffing on Sunday(That was the BAltimore contingent).The veggies and side dishes were all fairly sweet holiday style dishes, of which I care not for at all. I like my veggies steamed and plain with no accuterments and extra sugary ****. All I really ate was roast beef and the yorky pudding and gravy , had some potatoes but nine of the silly holiday stuff. I was glad to report that NOONE who made table even considered string bean cassarole. I think I may have railed about that mess during some Thanksgiving weekend visit .

I am not going to be required to eat anything until at least Jan 23.

@farmerman,
I am sorry to hear about the loss of one of the brothers. May peace and comfort be given to family and loved ones.

Your Christmas sounds like it was quite delightful.

@Arella Mae,
It was as good as it could be under the dark curtain of an "empty place at table"

@farmerman,
Seems that this Thread, started by David, is as good a plce to journal another Christmas.
My Sister-in-law, (who lost her husband to lung cncer in 2010) has found a companion. Hes a nice guy whose a retired unite AL pilot and hes a full time plant propogater. He fits rigjt in and hes really ell liked by everyone.
The kid will be home on Saturday but today we travel a bit and will (ive been told) be served a seafood lasagna dinner .

Tomorrow there will be a "block Prty" where the severl djoining frms get together by trudge paths between our lnds and we visit each home s a progressive dinner". This was strted a few years ago in honor of one of my oldest neighbor who died that year and we all were keeping his widow and spinster daughter comforted by keeping them busy with visitors.

We hd the Amish kids school sing carols yesterday ("Keeping in key" is not something the Amish consider a necessary item when singing). They substitute volume for harmony.

No snow but that's okee dokee. LAst year was brutal enough to be our "Little Ice Age"

Ill be absent mot of the day but we wish all of A2K a Happy Christmas nd Great New Year
