Why, bake of course! I use it instead of buying pumpkin puree in a tin.

In Houston, they have a WW1 Battleship, that played a role in both world wars. There is only 1 older battleship still floating. Ships compliment, 1,042 officers and crew. I took a lot more pics, but these are the best. Some decks were off limits, but it's still worth it. 

Next up, next year, a trip to Corpus Christi Texas to explore the U.S.S. Lexington, a WW2 aircraft carrier, that the Japanese "claimed" they had sunk 3 times. 

Note, we were within a 2 hour drive of the aircraft carrier, but I didn't know it was there :wut2:. Bad research on my part. 

Armament:

10 × 14 in (356 mm)/45 caliber guns

21 × 5 in (127 mm)/51 caliber guns

4 × 3-pounder 47 mm (1.85 in)/40 caliber saluting guns

2 × 1-pounder 37 mm (1.46 in)guns

4 × 21 in (533 mm) torpedo tubes(submerged)

On D-Day : "At 03:00 on 6 June 1944, Texas and the British cruiser Glasgow entered the Omaha Western fire support lane and arrived at her initial firing position 12,000 yd (11,000 m) offshore near Pointe du Hoc at 04:41, as part of a combined total US-British flotilla of 702 ships, including seven battleships and five heavy cruisers. The initial bombardment commenced at 05:50, against the site of six 15-centimetre (6 in) guns, atop Pointe du Hoc. When Texas ceased firing at the Pointe at 06:24, 255 14-inch shells had been fired in 34 minutes—an average rate of fire of 7.5 shells per minute, which was the longest sustained period of firing for Texas in World War II.

Bold is mine :4845:
