A Really nice Welcome home

After being away for a week in Virginia, my wife made a really great dinner. I’ve said it before: The best day in my life was the day we got married and it just keeps getting better!

EDIT: No, dinner was not just Salad, The Salad was just the Apetizer… 😉

MG Aile Strike Gundam – Assembled

Now that it’s assembled, I need to paint it. I’m thinking of using Tamiya paint. It’s good paint and I could use water to thin it. Once that’s done, I’ll ink the panel lines at that point. The model was fun to put together, is really posable and comes with a stand.

Nice, but my shelf is getting crowded.

Keep Back!

Building Yet Another Master Grade by Bandai. I’ve been so busy this last year and a half that I haven’t had the chance to build one of these. Since I’ve gotten back into photography, I figured “Why not document building it?”

Image cropped from Hobby Search.

Update: I had a link going straight to the Item on the Hobbysearch Web site, but the really long link kept choking Movable Type. Weird. 10/25/2005 – Seems to work now.

We have such a smart Gov’t…

top.baytown.refinery.ap.jpgFrom “Heating bills, oil expected to rise”
My favorite line is “Government sees a jump in heating costs this winter due to hurricanes and colder temperatures.”

You Think?!?!

Oil and Gas prices are out of Control, Oil companies are raking in Billions per quarter in profits and the Government deduces that there will be a “a jump in heating costs this winter”?

Due to Katrina?? Are they Kidding? It’s due to that and PRICE Gouging by Big oil.
Gov’t Response:

The list goes on.


Planned obsolescence

broken-ipod-remote.jpgI think Ipod Wired remotes are designed to eventually break. I’m now on my thrid one in one year and after shelling out the money for it, I’m wondering if it’s worth it??

new-broken-ipod-remote.jpgHere’s the New one next to the Old. Think I’ll take apart the connector on the Old one and see if I can re connect it…
