    But my favorite is short and to the point. At the military airbase in El Paso, Texas, they have a lot of student pilots. At the beginning of the long runway was a sign about 10 feet high and 20 feet long that said "WHEELS".
    Yes, that's pretty important when landing.

    Re: Is it safe for foreigners to live in Duma.....

    Two expressions that were widely used in the US after the 9/11 attacks.

    "Terrorism only works if you are terrorized"
    and
    "If you are not terrorized, then they have failed"

    both expressions work anytime and anywhere.
