June Meeting
When: Wednesday, June 16, 6:30 pm
Where: Fowler Park
What: Bocce Ball

Dust off your bocce skills and come to Fowler Park at 6:30PM on Wednesday, June 16, with a take out dinner in hand.  We will eat at the picnic tables and then begin the bocce games promptly at 7PM.  It doesn't get dark until late, so there will be plenty of time for playing. There are two courts so please bring your bocce set for the second court.  We usually go out for desset afterwards, perhaps Yogurtland this year.  Fowler Park is near Chaboya School, above the one time Lunardi's, on Cortona Drive at Altia.  You can go up Michelangelo to a right on Botticelli, or go up Cortona to a left on Altia.  Please RSVP to

Sex and the City 2.....Randi
 We are going Saturday, June 5th, to see "Sex and the City 2."  We will see it at Oakridge  at 4:40pm so let's meet upstairs at 4:10pm.  Give yourself plenty of time to park and wait in line (or buy ahead) for tickets.  After the movie, it is back to Randi's house for Chinese food and Cosmos (Randi will pick up Mandarin Gourmet after the movie... so bring $ for that too).  Please RSVP to Randi so she knows how much food to order and who to expect.  Let's have a fun Girls' Night Out!!

Also, plan ahead for Randi's meeting in July. She is going to have a cosmetics/clothes swap where everyone should bring those cosmetics that have never been used (not your shade of lipstick, etc) and clothes that are new or gently used to swap. It will be a LM recycle/green event!

On Saturday, June 12th @ 7:00 p.m.

Robin to bring a appetizer or dessert.  And please BYOB.  The Nevoli's will provide soda and water.

   UPS Airlines

Remember it takes a college degree to fly a plane, but only a high school diploma to fix one; a reassurance to those of us who fly routinely in their jobs.

After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a 'gripe sheet,' which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics corrects the problems, document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight.

Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humor. Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by UPS pilots (marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by maintenance engineers.

P: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement.
S: Almost replaced left inside main tire.

P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.

P: Something loose in cockpit.
S: Something tightened in cockpit.

P: Dead bugs on windshield.
S: Live bugs on back-order.

P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200-feet-per-minute descent.
S: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
S: Evidence removed.

P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
S: DME volume set to more believable level.

P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
S: That's what friction locks are for.

P: IFF inoperative in OFF mode.
S: IFF is always inoperative in OFF mode.

P: Suspected crack in windshield.
S: Suspect you're right.

P: Number 3 engine missing.
S: Engine found on right wing after brief search.

P: Aircraft handles funny. (I love this one!)
S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right and be serious.

P: Target radar hums.
S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.

P: Mouse in cockpit.
S: Cat installed.

And the best one for last

P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer.
S: Took hammer away from the midget.
