    No, all offices are closed. We're supposed to get the final DJs & 1199As before Turkey Day, but that may be next week also. Not too much dough left.

    Reminds me, I think I skipped a round on the totals.

    Thru Round 12:

    4,245 Ops Awards - $369,128,151 out of $422,500,000 ($53,371,849 left)
    895 Vehicle Awards - $157,325,532 out of $162,500,000 ($5,174,468 left)

    At the average Ops Award of $87K, right around 613 awards left in that department.
    At the average Vehicle Award of $176K, 29 trucks left.

    I know that will make for a long weekend for those that haven't heard yet, but hey, I'm just here to be a Clavin of information.

    Survey SAYS!

    106 awards for $28,085,857 million out of the available $65 million. I found out that $4 million of the first couple of rounds was turned down, so there will be others with money dropped on them after it's all said and done. The last pile were supposed to be like San Diego's 18 FFs requested, so there are some big suckers to come down the pike. But with the financial conditions in some places, I think more will end up having to turn down the award because they can't meet the conditions over the 5 years.

    I have heard from some familiar with the COPS program from way back that things are already lining up that like program, where the layoffs came as soon as the obligation period ended. Hope that doesn't happen here.

    Hey Ma. I saved Jeopardy!

    What's going on Mr Peterson?
    No, Woody, let's talk about what's going in Mr Peterson.

    What'll you have Mr Peterson?
    I'm feeling risky, let's see what comes out of that tap right there.
    It's beer.
    It must just be my lucky day.

    A few nostalgic smile for everyone on Thanksgiving. Those of us old enough to remember Cheers on Prime Time that is...
