I got a chuckle from your “Blog Machine” photo. You see, what is actually pictured in it is the Maneuvering Room from a nuclear submarine. I know this from having spent far too many years on subs as a nuclear-trained electrician.[READ]
This was part of a display at the Smithsonian, and was removed from a decommissioned sub. They also had the Control Room, Crew’s Mess and some other parts on display.
Now, about how to start blogging… (Just kidding!)
