the first time since we made our very first post the monthly updates weren’t
made August 1st due to a lightning strike that
fried our modem on July 23rd. It took a full week to get a replacement and when it finally
came July 30th it only worked for about 30 hours, 27 of which it
wasn’t even in use.
set up the new modem and things seemed to be working fine and since I was behind on
several websites and Facebook posting obligations, I decided to catch up on
those since I still had plenty of time on July 31st to update Verna
& Randy’s Rockets but when I sat down that Wednesday afternoon to begin, I
couldn’t log on. From that point it took our provider, Windstream, (a total
joke) another 5 days to correct a problem on their end. They should be called
Weakstream; evidently they’re powered by the prostate of a 99 year old man.
you have a good internet provider thank your lucky stars because for 13 years
we’ve been marooned in the internet boonies with only 1 choice; a string and 2
cups and the string is constantly frayed.
we’re back, until the next storm blows through.

Above you see a rare photo of Dave Miller, appropriately dressed in black as owner of the clandestine black ops organization
known as Sirius Rocketry! What does he do in his spare time? He reads Rocket Babe, what else?
That's a nice looking Cestris Fighter he's holding too! Get yours from https://www.siriusrocketry.com
Verna Starr Cestris Fighter!
This is our favorite Sirius kit, the Cestris.
The kit is intended to fly on a single engine but it was easily modified to a 3 engine cluster complete with Verna Starr fighter
decals, also available from Sirius.

Rush Area 51… Or “Alien-stock”
you believe there
are real aliens being held at Area 51? Are you going to be one of the 100,000+
to rush Area 51 in the early morning hours of September 20, 2019? I was a
couple of years too young to make it to Woodstock and now I’m a few years too
mature (old) to consider Alien-stock.
now most people
have heard of the insane Facebook call to rush Area 51. The organizer’s slogan:
“They can’t stop all of us.” Yeah, I wouldn’t bet your life on that.
The plan calls for thousands
of participants to meet at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction
(wherever that is) where they will be
organized into groups with the idea being, if everyone runs at once from many
directions some of the alien seekers will be able to out run the bullets. Yep,
you read that right, out run the bullets. From the sound of things they are at
least acknowledging there may be people that won’t make it – alive.
those who might
not know, depending on the gun, most bullets travel more than 2,000 feet per
second. I doubt even Wiley Coyote or the Roadrunner for that matter, can run
that fast. So again, I wouldn’t bet your life on it.
But ok, just to play alien’s advocate,
what if somehow a few people actually made it through a wall
of lead and deadly security to one of the hangars, then what? Do you ring the
bell? Shoot off the hangar door lock? Play a few notes from Close Encounters of
The Third Kind? And what if you had an encounter of the third kind where you
actually stand face to face with a real alien? What happens if the alien wants
to have an encounter of the 4th kind with you? That’s where he
probes you, then has you for dinner, literally.
Well, after a few
weeks of fun on the internet, the people who originally floated the idea are
now saying it’s all just a big joke but from what I’ve read USAF isn’t
laughing. They’ve had friendly little signs posted for many years: “No
trespassing. Deadly force is authorized against intruders.”
I suppose we’ll see
September 20th who is the most serious about Alien-stock, but I’m
betting most of those who signed up online to participate don’t make it past
the first gate. I do think it would be hilarious if there are aliens there and
they would come out to meet those seeking them. I wonder which way they would
rush then. Can you imagine the panic if 100,000 people saw a real alien face to face?
It all reminds me of
Mulder questioning Deep Throat in season 1 of The X-Files when he asks,
“They’re here, aren’t they?” And DT answers, “Mr. Mulder, they've
been here for a long, long time.”
luck to those of you who make the attempt. Be sure and send us your photos, we'd love to share them here.
She'll go with you anywhere! Kevin, owner and moderator at the Alien Soup  sci-fi
forum, enjoys Rocket Babe - Dust Storm between innings at a recent ballgame!
"Alien-stock? Nope, too hot for me!"
