In the desert, lubricants are another problem.  When the wind blows,
small particles of sand mix with the grease/oil, and turn it into a fine
grinding compound.  In the Gulf War, we did not use the usual break-free
teflon lube on our M-16s, and many other problems were lube-related.

I love it.  We own 6 dogs.  1 retired protection lab, 1 old Brittany
Spanial, and 4 Great Danes.  Of the Danes, 1 is retired, 1 is SAR
trained, 1 is a therapy dog, and the pup is currently ranked #4 in her
class in the nation, and has just won 2 ribbons and a trophy in Tucson
this weekend.  If our dogs don't make it to heaven, I'm not sure I want
to be there either.
