You'll have no problem getting back into Fortress Trumpmerica !

2. How do you like Hong Kong?

I spent six month on a project there in '98 and loved it! Much better than Singapore which I find boring.

4. I was only there for a few days, but my impression was quite positive.

Clean, orderly, modern. Rather expensive (although the taxis were very reasonable). Good food.

Never been to Singapore...

5. Give me that suit, I'll figure it out!

Trivia: After the show ended there was an unaired pilot for a sequel, "The Greatest American Heroine".

8. Holy Crap on a cloud!! How the hell did that show not make the cut?

And where the hell was I when that aired? I would've literally been glued to my TV set every week when that show was on.

9. It was never aired. They did split the pilot in half and add it to the syndication package as

a couple of extra episodes .

12. Jet stream sure will bump the speed.

This will interest you. 745mph riding a 200mph jet stream.

I remember this when it occurred.

13. I was surprised when my ground speed went just over 700 mph. I don't think I've ever seen it

quite that high.

15. I call that "honkin on".

About 117 miles per 10 minutes. Whew!

They do everything possible to avoid them when they're a head wind. In fact, they'd run out of fuel and could drop in the ocean.
