    The Country Womens’ Association (CWA) and the Australian American Association were among groups that organised hospitality services for Americans on R & R, giving them the chance to visit Australian homes or join families on outings. Some Americans preferred to spend their leave outside Sydney and visited rural New South Wales, but for many their experience of R & R was largely limited to Kings Cross.

    Amy Johnson Cake.
    Rub 2ozs butter into 1 large cup S.R flour, sifted with a pinch of salt, mix to firm dough with a little milk. Roll out 1/4" thick and line a greased cake tin. Spread with raspberry jam and sprinkle with 1/2 cup currents. Then make a sponge mixture: beat 2 eggs and 3/4 cup of sugar until light and fluffy. Fold in 1 cup sifted S.R flour and finally 2 tablespoons butter melted in 3 tablespoons of milk. Pour on top of pastry. Bake about 40 minutes in moderate oven. When cold, ice with thin lemon icing and sprinkle with coconut

    Back then, people would just help a guy out when something like this happened.

    Nowadays, the plane would be impounded, the pilot would get a ticket, the mechanic would be sued, the neighbors would be complaining about having to detour a couple blocks, and the city council would use it as an excuse to annex the nearest small airfield.

    I think maybe this is why I like old stuff; it's a connection to a time - and a mindset - that's long gone.

    QUOTE WIKIPEDIA: "Bandmate Waylon Jennings gave up his seat on the plane, causing Holly to jokingly tell Jennings, "I hope your ol' bus freezes up!" Jennings shot back facetiously, "Well, I hope your ol' plane crashes!" It was a statement that would haunt Jennings for decades."

    Jimi: HELL, some ballsy guys were just jokin' around during a bad period of weather, folks. Let's just leave it lie at that. Sad day.
