*** The TSA agent at Dulles inspecting my boarding this past week took a good long look at me and smiled when she handed my boarding pass and passport back to me. “You look different. I think you’ve lost weight.”

*** The Lufthansa stewardess on my FRA-IAD flight came through the cabin handing out jars of baby food. “It’s quite good, actually,” she said. “It tastes like yogurt.”

*** If you ever get the opportunity to travel to Hamburg, be sure to see the Maritime Museum and the world’s largest collection of miniature ship models…more than 43,000 of them.

*** I decided to watch the beginning of Alien on the plane to London last week. Turns out channel six had no audio. I ended up watching the entire movie with no sound, and saw all kinds of interesting details I had never noticed before.

*** Normally, flights coming from the U.S. to Honolulu fly over the big island, with Maui and Molokai on the right side of the airplane to the north. When arriving at Honolulu yesterday we came in from the northeast, over Kaneohe. I’ve never done that before. Oahu looks very different from that perspective.

*** Another airline movie first for me:

I always thought watching a movie on an iPod was stupid. But I watched 2012 on my iPod after my son loaded a bunch of his movies on my iPod. I actually found the viewing experience not unreasonable. The plot of 2012 WAS *%$#ing stupid, however.

It reminded me of a movie that came out some years ago called “Drive In,” in which the movie that was on the screen while the kids were all doing their thing at the drive in theater on a summer night in Texas was called “Disaster 76.” Every kind of disaster rolled into one movie. Only one guy survives, and he was in every disaster.

*** Causing a stir:

Have you shipped off a box (or two) of school supplies to our U.S. forces in Kabul who are working with their colleagues with the British Army in supporting two orphanages and a school? This is pretty easy. And even some crayons will help.

I recommend a “Priority Mail” box from the U.S. Postal Service. If it fits, it ships, for one low flat-rate. How much school supplies can you fit in a box?

Here are some photos of the school supplies that have been received and are being distributed.
