    Well Steven, you certainly do some outstanding work on those interior tubs.  All the intricate and repetitive masking and painting must drive you nuts...... and then some.

    Nice looking Riv Mark.  It could use some BMF on the windshield frame.

    Wow, great looking cars Matt.  Welcome back to the hobby, and to our plastic playground here.  I'm an ex-Long Islander.  I used to live in West Islip and moved to western PA almost 9 years ago because of the ridiculously high R.E. Taxes and utility rates.

    Thanks again guys.
    Mark, I got a set by Hampton Art with 16 different colors of embossing powder on EBAY back in March for $16.70 + $2.76 shipping.

    Steven, you're just a "crazyman" with all that masking and painting on interiors...... but it does look outstanding.

    That looks great Mike.  J.D. has been my favorite libation for many, many years.

    That's actually an Armadillo that does that...... Not an Amarillo.

  14. Ramfins59 added a post in a topic What Irked You Today?   

    One of the prescription drugs that I take on a daily basis is Onglyza, for the control of my blood sugar, as I am a Stage 2 diabetic.  My blood sugar numbers are all good due to watching my diet and taking the Onglyza and Metformin.  (latest # is 97 and my A1C is 6.4).  When we went to my local Target pharmacy to pick up my prescription refills they advised that the co-pay for Onglyza had gone up......  A 90 day refill supply would cost me $459.00...!!!!!!  There is no way in hell that I can afford that.  I and the pharmacy called my PCP to see if he can either prescribe a generic for Onglyza, or a different, cheaper drug.
    Drug prices are ridiculous!!!  The drug companies are so profit oriented causing so many people to not be able to afford the drugs they need.  Yeah, I know, the corporate mindset is to make a profit... but come on...!!!
    I'm not trying to make this a political thing, I'm just "irked".
