    Lol! I get addressed by rank more than by Mrs. - feel free to call me MU1, if that makes it easier! :D

    I'm sometimes addressed as Mr., while academically it would more correctly be Master. My Christian (given) name is my preference, or much more often, my nick name.

    Ok, being that I served in the Army. I have never really understood Navy or Air Force ranking all that well. I just know your basic Marine/Army rank structure. Enlisted are E1 -E9 and Comisissioned O1- O10.

    Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

    My grand daughter just started playing trumpet. She had her choice of instruments, but she wanted to be like me. I'm shamelessly proud. I showed her some youtube videos of Tine Thing and other female trumpet players to influence her decision. Great role models.
