One beer for Sputnik. If you have anything to say about the Hindenburg, that's a hot topic in the next thread.

Oh, there it is, thanks Fishy. Guess I got a bit distracted by that probing tongue I got.

Probing tongue... it’s been so long since I had one of those...

Well, let's see. I built windmills on Friday and then went to a nice fondue and wine party, burner style.

Today I've been putting my 2 cents worth into the various forums here.

Your welcome! and thank you! I think my sunshine reserves are starting to refill. They were dangerously low for awhile.

Oh yes, well with these sunny spring days, that seems to be just about right.

Are you happy with the windmill progress, sputnik?

Giggles, I'm glad to hear things are making you feel better. You seem the type that can't stay depressed for long.

As far as the windmills go, not as quickly as I would have hoped, but I think my design for the bases has won some converts. Still there are some who think they can do better, so we're having a build off of sorts. I think it's a bit of a waste of effort, but so be it. These are just the half size models anyway. We do have a full day build scheduled for next weekend, so if the weather holds I intend to have my base done and ready for a turret.

We have a fundraiser scheduled for May 21.

Our website is http://www.burningwindmills.com

Nothing there last time I looked but an image of what they will look like.

It looks like I’m actually going to see Blue, Z, and whom ever else shows up in May. I’m heading up to welcome home one of bestest playa amigas. She’s in Europe and will be returning May the 6th. It’ll be a bit of a pre-burn/compression/fun get together.

Yeah, I can see how these types of things could benefit from a single vision from a spearheading individual, but then again, I think the types of energies that emerge from those "competitions" of a sort are pretty good too. Assuming you have the time for them, they can be great for hashing out ideas and seeing what works, what doesn’t.

and I'll keep a check on the site.

We do have a good artistic vision, but that needed some common sense to implement the vision. It also needs some project management skills to keep it on track so we don't run ourselves into the ground in August. I may volunteer to be the camp whip cracker.

Sometimes you just gotta do it, you know? If you look around, it appears to be bedlam and stepping up feels right, then do it. It is doesn’t, don’t.

I like the pics on the site, though, I think it would be a really cool project to be involved in. But alas... I live so far away and have my own projects anyways...

But I like it... a bunch.

It will be awesome. Especially when we do the ceremonial battling of the demons.

A drink! To the windmills!
