  1. Fantastic tribute, John! I often wondered about Max's life story and heard various rumors and tall tales so it was great to read your post. I didn't know how far back you and Max were friends. My last encounter with Max was noticing his worried expression as a packer packed his rig. Max would pack even in the hottest days but finally gave in to let another pack for him for his last few jumps. "The reason angels can fly is that they take themselves so lightly." --GK Chesterton

  3. Tomasitas is good, and there are plenty other places to chow down. Breakfast at the classic Pasqual's. Dinner at Pink Adobe and El Farol. Be sure to try both red chile and green chile stews. And REAL Sopapillas for dessert! The museums are world class! We like the Folk Art museum best. Summertime you can park at the ski area and hike up to the top of Sta Fe peak. You can hike up Wheeler Mtn by Taos, the highest peak in NM. One of the best drives in the USA is the 'back road to Taos' via Chimayo and Truchas. Rancho de Chimayo is another classic restaurant next to the must visit church Santuario de Chimayo. Be sure to visit a Pueblo during a Feast day and see authentic Rain and Corn dances and eat excellent home cooked foods. Anyone who bad mouths Northern NM hasn't gotten past the tourist gloss view. It's an area with centuries of culture and stories, and great outdoors. "The reason angels can fly is that they take themselves so lightly." --GK Chesterton

  6. Nobody can take Johnny's place, and the rides to altitude are not the same without him. But Rick, you are help keeping the Muff Bros traditions alive. Keep the fun going! (you too Bill B!) "The reason angels can fly is that they take themselves so lightly." --GK Chesterton
  7. I remember hearing about it....and that's me getting on the plane in front of Bill and Rick for a Muff Hoop Jump! "The reason angels can fly is that they take themselves so lightly." --GK Chesterton
  8. since people are mentioning Ed Sullivan Show....Who else saw the Beatles on Ed Sullivan? "The reason angels can fly is that they take themselves so lightly." --GK Chesterton
  9. Be sure to hang out in Penang near the Thai border, its a very nice island with lots to do (beach, hiking, scooter rentals, good food). It was my favorite place in Malaysia. "The reason angels can fly is that they take themselves so lightly." --GK Chesterton

  11. Anybody try it? Jumping off the stratosphere tower on a line? Also, has anyone been to the local windtunnel? Is it worth taking some coworkers to play? "The reason angels can fly is that they take themselves so lightly." --GK Chesterton
  12. cool answer, shah! Plus I know that FIRE is very important in that religion, and you know that skydivers are all pyros...we're in the bonfire discussion now and love our fireworks! "The reason angels can fly is that they take themselves so lightly." --GK Chesterton

  15. Here's the bible! http://www.oracle.com/pls/db112/homepage And here is a create table example from that: Example 2-1 CREATE TABLE employees CREATE TABLE employees ( employee_id NUMBER(6) , first_name VARCHAR2(20) , last_name VARCHAR2(25) CONSTRAINT emp_last_name_nn NOT NULL , email VARCHAR2(25) CONSTRAINT emp_email_nn NOT NULL , phone_number VARCHAR2(20) , hire_date DATE CONSTRAINT emp_hire_date_nn NOT NULL , job_id VARCHAR2(10) CONSTRAINT emp_job_nn NOT NULL , salary NUMBER(8,2) , manager_id NUMBER(6) , department_id NUMBER(4) , CONSTRAINT emp_salary_min CHECK (salary > 0) ) ; ------------------------------------------------------ Add your referential integrity constraints AFTER creating the table, example: ALTER TABLE employees ADD ( CONSTRAINT emp_emp_id_pk PRIMARY KEY (employee_id) , CONSTRAINT emp_dept_fk FOREIGN KEY (department_id) REFERENCES departments , CONSTRAINT emp_job_fk FOREIGN KEY (job_id) REFERENCES jobs (job_id) , CONSTRAINT emp_manager_fk FOREIGN KEY (manager_id) REFERENCES employees ) ; "The reason angels can fly is that they take themselves so lightly." --GK Chesterton
