  1. Things got ugly Monday night as the area took a direct hit from several tornadoes including at least two that have been classified as EF3. I let the dogs out before going to bed and being almost 50 miles from ground zero, the lightening show looked the finale in the original Ghostbusters. Talking to a co-worker this morning who lives in the area of the storms said it went on for 45 minutes. Amazingly only one person died in the storms. State Patrol closed down I-75 for Dayton to use snow plows to remove the debris from the highway.
  2. Went to a local toy show and bought the Funko Pops Addams Family (including Gomez w/ the sword and the black & white Gomez and Morticia)

  4. Like I need another project but it appears complete with all the custom pieces (missing the center console).....
  5. I think my city does that with potholes as they seem to reappear after the next rain
  6. The Russian judge only gave a 5.5 for not sticking the landing....
  7. Thanks to the perpetual road construction between home and Indianapolis, I was late for the open house at Greenlights corporate office. Managed to grab these for $20/each. The Yenko Camaro is missing a wiper......don't see anything damaged on the Trans am.
  8. Went to the Greenlights open house today. They had a food truck on site. This.....was.....awesome!!
  9. From the InterWeb yesterday: The pay gap at Citigroup, led by Michael Corbat since 2012, is the biggest among large U.S. banks. Corbat made $24.2 million last year, 486 times the median employee pay of $49,766. ...and companies wonder why they have high employee turnover.
  10. If you feel like a road trip, Greenlights (Northside of Indianapolis) is having their open house in a couple weeks (May 10th). Their warehouse sale is a great opportunity to get the ones that the local stores never get or end up as 'employee exclusives' (never make it to the store shelves). Their open 1/64 are usually $1 for plastic bottom and $2-3 for metal bases, 1/24 are $10, including trailers and 1/18 are $20. Last year I got the 1/18 Mad Max Ford Falcon for $20 (needs side mirrors) and a greenmachine trailer for $10 (needs back bumper)
  11. Dayton Cars & Coffee Fiat (owner wasn't around so don't know the model or year) Pao Honda Beat Nissan Figaro
  12. Twenty two years ago, I managed an office building that had a similar wood system, built in the days before sprinklers and fire walls. Easter morning, 4am-ish (remember it well as my oldest was just two days old!), it took a direct hit from lightning and burned until the newspaper carrier saw it an called it in. 6a I got the call. From a mile away I could see the lights from the aerial truck! The only things left of the second floor of the building was a Steelcase desk and a file cabinet....the rest wasn't ash.....it was soot! (it burned that hot!)
  13. In the six months after turning 25, I had to get glasses (the names and numbers on the back of the jerseys of the hockey team were getting smaller and blurry), had the wisdom teeth cut out (three impacted) and had my knee scoped (torn meniscus play tennis)....30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 have been a walk in the park!
