    Default One of my neighbors is a Blue Angel in the Dreams video

    Not sure where in the Links to put this, but I was at the neighborhood Xmas party this last Friday night, and I don't know why but I had never asked him before was "hey, were you in the Van Halen "Dreams" video" and his response was "yeah, we all got VHS tapes of the video with their autographs on it, I got it at home".

    He had a bunch of cool stories, but I will share two to be brief.

    I asked him how close they get their planes to each other in the air and his response was "about one foot in the beginning of the season, but about three to four inches by the end of the year".

    Also, his story was one of persistence and determination. Was originally an Air Force guy, but they told him he wasn't going to fly a plane but a desk. He said no thanks and switches to Navy. Got rejected three times to be a fighter pilot, but the fourth time was the charm, and then though hard work and dedication became a Blue Angel. He had a boat load of stories and was of course going to the Army/Navy game on Saturday.

    Great guy.

    I have several military bad asses in my neighborhood, makes for cool beer drinking stories.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    That is cool. I have a cousin that used to be a Thunderbird in the USAF. Those guys were pretty crazy too. I was about 12 years old when he was in it and used to go to all their shows with his mother when they would come to the N.E. It was pretty cool cause we got the VIP treatment all the way. I got to meat the then Vice President George Bush, sit right on the runway to take pictures during their performance and be at all the VIP dinners with them after the shows. It was a lot of fun.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.
