The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online. Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.
Thanks for introducing me to this gentleman, here's one I also looked at that hits me. He has a lot of different clips I'm going to have to look at as I get time. Somewhat too late for me at my age, but still interesting.
How about going back to what it originally was supposed to be: Armistice Day - commemorated every year on 11 November to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of WW 1 and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War 1, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning—the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918? A memorial to the attempt to attain peace instead of the militaristic, jingoistic day that it has become.
Sounds pretty political to me. Now if there were regulations in place, or its sounding like in this case, even if the few pitiful regulations that exist had been followed that he wouldn't have been allowed to buy the weapons.
Grew up in Oklahoma and couldn't stand the winter. Then spend time in Michigan at Michigan State during the winter. Swore I was getting out of there ASAP and going to were I would never have to see snow and ice again. The only place I've ever felt comfortable is along the California coast preferable from Santa Barbara to Santa Cruz. Just can't afford it.
Agree with the photos and statement except for "don't mind winter weather". Imagine those photos at 0 degrees and a foot of snow, ice and slush covering everything. In 20+ years here and 20+ in SoCal before have never slipped on, or had to shovel, sunshine.
Thanks for the documentary. Interesting. Had a call from an old friend in Cal a couple of days ago. He and I went to the opening for the original Blade Runner. He was completely freaked over it and I thought it was ok. He asked if I'd seen the new one and thought it was just excellent. Know I'll go see it, just might wait until it gets to the 2nd run theater. With their 1.50 Tuesdays, makes a lot of things more watchable. One of my problems with the original is Phillip K. Dick is one of my favorite writers and "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" one of my 5 favorite books. Since the original movie just borrowed a few ideas and characters and left out the major part (at least to my reading) of the book plot, it sort of irritated me. It wasn't as bad as 'Total Recall', based 'On We Can Remember It For You Wholesale' which I just about walked out on. Problem with being a fanboy.
Trying to think if anymore there's anything that would get me really crazy. The only one really popping up is a resin kit: Duryea 1895 that was done by a company called Genesis. It was in the group of stuff I had stolen a couple of years ago. The company I guess folded up fairly quickly and only ever seen one for sale. Unfortunately it was already sold and it was mine. When I checked the buyer's listing he had about 10 other (most fairly obscure) kits from my stolen stuff for sale. E-bay wouldn't do anything, neither would the small town police department, yes still somewhat upset and bitter about the whole situation. For a plastic kit, maybe a AMT 58 Ford, but got more then enough to last the rest of my life at the tectonic rate I build at.
By swinging the part that goes over the hood up and out of the way. Protects the hood from getting mashed down into radiator and engine. Some of the military ones are set up like that, which is probably why Meng did one. Several mid-east and se Asia forces use them plus the US use them. Note they also did a 1/35 version.
To throw my bit in. Why Sedona? Over Prescott? Personally think there's more to do and see in Prescott and just like the overall area better. But since you said you won't be driving, guess you're hanging with someone in the Sedona area or using arranged transportation. Anyway your vacation. If you go out 89A through Oak Creek Canyon to Flagstaff that's a nice drive. From Flag to the Canyon if you want to do the train I40 west to Williams and catch it there. Need reservations. If driving head out 180 from the northwest side of Flag. Good road, nice drive, highest pass is around 10,000 ft. but its not a real twisty. If you have time as you're leaving Flag from there a couple of neat little museums. Pioneer Museum - Historical on the north side of the highway and a little further on the south side: Museum of Northern Arizona - Art and Cultural. Also the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff itself. As 180 dead ends into the 64 at Valle were you head north to the canyon there is a Air Museum Planes Of Fame annex museum there also with some antique cars. Show photos from there: https://whulsey.smugmug.com/Airplanes/2014-08-23-Thunder-Over/ Better have a month for all we've planned for you.
