    Dear Chief

    No one was more surprised than I when......................
    No kidding.

    A few years ago, a young rookie was rushing to cover me on something where I already had cover with me, and I had already advised over the air that the scene was under control. He hydroplaned and lost it at about 100 mph, in the dark, in the rain, in a clearly posted 20 mph zone. The resulting yard-sale involved straight-out killed one of our least-damaged patrol cars, cutting a utility pole in half, killing a tree, and punting a fire hydrant about 100 yards down from the POI. I've seen plane crashes that weren't as much of a mess as this scene was.

    I always tell the rookies, in order to arrive first, you must first arrive.

      Tickets will be issued.

      Justice will be served.
      You should let that one die a natural death. Nothing good is going to come from that course of action.

      And slow down...

        Yeah I know. But damn did it have me wound up. And yes I will slow down - had another scare after the dog incident and before I was 10-23. The AWD can be deceiving, especially in graded curves when it's raining.

      I've watched a few movies over the past couple of months that were set in the 80's.It reminded me so much of my childhood where you spent your days out on your bike with your friends and how neat it was to own a walkie talkie. At the time, I didn't have a clue how lucky I was to grow up in the 70's and 80's when so much amazing music was being recorded.
      pshh...brown streak incoming. pshhh as I pedal to my friends house. Not an 80s child but I had a walkie talkie. Well I still do.

                Those members with Paraphilia should find this topic interesting.

                Seriously female grasshopper taste like pineapple.

                You’re probably thinking how will you sex a grasshopper?

                Easy, hold the grasshopper in the middle of its body between your fingers. Pick up the grasshopper gently so you have a firm grip. ...
                Squeeze softly on the grasshopper's abdomen. ...
                Identify a male grasshopper by a rounded abdomen. ...
                Note that a female grasshopper has a tapered abdomen.
                Place in your mouth and chew it slowly, if it tastes like pineapple, it’s a female, if it tastes like chicken, a male.

                  I thought when you said squeeze the males abdomen, something else was gonna pop out.

                  Yummy! I have all the ingredients, just need to go outside a scoop up a bowl of grasshoppers.

              • No grasshopper invasion in New Jersey...but I do have a cave cricket infestation in my home's crawlspace. These things are HUGE and have meaty legs the size of drumsticks. My son commented that we could probably survive for a few months by eating cave crickets. I told him, "Good! Next time you have a dozen of your friends over, how about you guys go hunting for food in the crawlspace instead of raiding my refrigerator?"


                I think I'll try some cricket kabobs on the grill this weekend.

                  NOLA2005 It would save me a fortune too. But I can see the headlines already: "Police lieutenant in New Jersey arrested after forcing teens to eat insects".



              • I’ll take grasshoppers and crickets over roaches any day.
