Here is a collection of patches and other stuff from various "aerospace" activities... The buttons on the left were for access to Edward AFB to see the shuttle landings. Most happened near sunrise and the view was better on the other side of the landing area with the sun at your back.

I was fortunate enough to do a 1 month temporary assignment at this place

[Click Here]

I worked for Control Data in the 1970's and early 1980's, and CDC maintained a computer room full of DEC computers in the Spacecom facility in Las Cruces NM. If I remember properly, I was there shortly after the first TDRS satellite was launched.

I still have a windbreaker that says "Spacecom" on the back

bernermom asked about ny earliest patch. The Apollo 14 (1971) patch was given to my by Alan Sheppard when we both worked for McDonnell Douglas in HB (early 80's).. was it from the 70s? hard to tell. The other I collected at the time of various missions. The Edwards AFB gift shop was awesome.

The Strategic Defense Initiative patch (aka Star Wars) was given to me from the Army BMDO (Ballistic Missile Defense org) commanding general during the HEDI (High Endoatmospheric Defense Interceptor) program, 1986.

The envelope in the lower right corner flew on STS-8 in 1983. I have other patches (somewhere in the archives..) one is an original Apollo 11 patch and my dad had a few from Mercury and Gemini.

I made the shadow box for my annual "Rocket" presentation to our local 6th graders..

Then there are the coffee mugs...

Well, Scott. You made me delve into my archives of pins, pictures, etc. Here's a picture of various pins I've hung on my wall. I've got more that I haven't gotten around to adding yet.




And here's a flag I'm pretty proud of since it flew to MIR on STS-91




I also had many amazing opportunities to meet quite a few of the astronauts. I liked to say I met many very ordinary people who just happened to be doing the most extraordinary things. Here's two pictures of Station's Expedition 2 crew, Jim Voss and Susan Helms, from October 2001.






Maybe you and I ought to get together some day, dig out our archives, and swap doubles to fill out the collections. I've even got a few of the STS-1 decals from the first Shuttle mission with John Young & Bob Crippen.

On a sad note, Scott, I here they're in the early stages of tearing down Bldg 17, otherwise known as the Space Station Building on what's left of the HB Campus.

Thanks for sharing your cool collection too, Dave!


When I was young, we lived up in the high desert near Edwards AFB. A friend of my parents had worked for many years doing something related to the space shuttle (I don't remember what). One time when we were at his house, he showed us pieces he had from the heat shield that had broken and were removed from one of the shuttles. He also had a US Flag that flew on the shuttle Enterprise during one of it's test flights.
The funniest thing I remember though was the toilet paper he said they used on the space shuttles - it was printed to look like money because that's how our tax dollars were being spent, or something funny like that.

Here's what I've got, from back when I was a Quality Assurance Inspector for a aerospace company in Burbank (mid 1980's-1994) :

Yes, it is! All my patches are in a box (AKA archives) somewhere. Guess the kids will discover them someday.

The second wave of painted lady butterflies has hatched and a fresh litter of bunnies have emerged. It always amazes me how animals are great at sharing the earth yet the large brained ones can't even share the road.

A.R.....even though Grout Creek and a few other lake feeders are still flowing, volume is such that we`re looking at a few more inches max...
The good news is that you don`t have to extend the gangway/dock out nearly as far to get to proper depth this year!

Hey Lake People. As it is so nice to see blue at the east end once again, what are the chances we will get another couple of feet in the next month or so. Would so love to put new owners dock out for the first time in 6 years???????

NSA, from another former scouter, Kudos on so many years of service and you are still going strong. Just goes to show that it just a couple of morons followed by and idiot or two to really fowl it up for the good ones and for the kids. An experience I would never want to forgo.

Was a scout leader for my two boys (both earned eagle rank) and the rest of the troop of about 70 boys. Was the cooking merit badge counselor, led 12 summer camps (one to Crater Lake, OR another to Philmont Scout Ranch NM), had a group of 11 Tiger Cubs (1st graders) of which 7 earned eagle. Also won 7 adult Golden Spoon camp cooking awards! Our troop (Fullerton 1201) was formed 1919.

The Boy Scout hullabaloo is a lawyer trying to make a name for themselves. So the BOA had a list of suspected child predators? So does AYSO and any other organization that puts adults in contact with children (except maybe the Catholic Church). They didn't let them have anything to do with kids. Should they have published the names without a trial? NO.
