  1. I too have gone over to MSFS just for the scenery and land use accuracy. If this had been available when I first got serious about simming I would be around 4K richer now. I switched to XP-11 and still use it because I want to become a helicopter pilot. (never, never go for a copter flight with me.). XP11 has great photo real scenery but you need a server bank to store it. MSFS stores the scenery in the Cloud which works just fine for me tooling around at 100kts. I love it when the land out the window looks like the real thing. Gypsy.
  2. Yep, the same here. My Son has me on house arrest, can't roam around like I used to do. So far we have been healthy so I don't rock the boat.
  3. Yep, time just flew by . Yesterday my youngest Granddaughter turned 36. I just looked up the Golden Gate Bridge and yes, I am older by 2 years. We are all a gaggle of Old Coots and I am glad to be here. Gypsy
  4. Well the Magnolia's are still here but we ate all of the Possum's. Ain't Earworms so much fun. Enjoy your winter. Gypsy
  5. Good news is always welcome. Glad to hear from you Teecee Gypsy
  6. I think that we should start a pinned group to memorialize those of us who, like Neil Hil, have "Flown West". Creating this list will not be easy because we are scattered around the earth, and many of us only have an on-line and not an in person relationship with each other. Over the years I have come to value each of you even though the only thing we have in common is a shared hobby and some life experiences. I only know you from this site and worry when the postings stop. It would help to know if one of my on-line friends has passed on. It sho
  7. I am 83, and like the rest of you I am falling apart. It used to be only one thing at a time, but alas, my body has learned to multi-task. The constant pain these ailments cause has increased and the level goes up with each failure. My brain, hearing, and eyesight, not wanting to be left out, are going along with the general plan. Other than that I seen to be doing OK. My (insert your favorite curse words here) doctor told me that I should last at least another 20 years. I know that he is a wise man because he stayed out of punch in the nose range
  8. Boris Johnson was released from the hospital today. Brexit Lives!!! All the press will talk about is how many people died. Here in the States they never mention that 7 out of every 10 people that are hospitalized live and go home.
  9. I was told by my doctor when I turned 80 that those were the two main factors in deciding weather or not I would be treated if I came down with a serious illness. Oh well, I guess it's all part of entering our last decade.
  10. You hang in there Teecee. We will all say a prayer for you. Dale
  11. I went to the VA Clinic yesterday and they had a welcoming committee taking temperatures and giving us a quick look see before we were allowed to enter the building. I was told by my Doctor that my neck is beyond repair and sorry but I have no choice but to learn to live with the pain or become a junkie. After reading the previous post I am doing better than a lot of you Old Coots. I just turned 83 and now that I have my blood sugar under control (it was 575) I feel well enough to fly again. Sore finger tips is a small price to pay for wellness. Dropping over 40 lbs off of
  12. This scenery being released for P3d v4 is some of the best news I have in years. My move to X Plane to obtain the True Earth Scenery has resulted in a minor depression because of having to turn my back on all of the dollar investment in ORBX scenery I own. JV's statement that he is going port True Earth to P3d is like warm, golden Sunrise after a long winter's night.
  13. I suffered with a chronic cough for years that was caused by a mild post nasal drip which happened mostly at night during sleep. [ of course smoking 1+ pack of cigs a day for over 42 years had nothing to do with the cough, my COPD, well maybe. ] I finally got rid of mine several years ago using Flonase backed up with Vicks Vapo Rub.

  14. The only real advantage is that the flight dynamics are better.
