Hey Sputnik! Congratulations!!!!!!

Looks like the burn went really, really well! Good height, good shape and containment... Who is that to the right of it (looks like) spinning poi or somesuch??

For your success... a snifter with a double of Patron Anejo... Would you prefer a lime or an orange with that?

That would be Art. He was doing some fire breathing while we burned.

Orange, I guess. Never had that before.
It's going to be alright.

It burned so hot and so fast, it was a good thing we moved the couches back farther. They would have lit up otherwise. I can't wait to see the big ones go up.

Beer me!

Blue walks into an empty bar, then notices how clean the bar top is

Wow! I can see myself in this bar, someone really must have been bored. Oh, and look a belated birthday card for me.

Blue picks up card and opens it, then looks at the suprise inside. Turns and continues to look at it perplexed.

Gee thanks Monkeypoo, that was really sweet of you to leave a card. I only wish I knew what this suprise thing is.

OK. Time to crack the first beer of the evening. Tonight's swill is from the Atwater Block brewery in Detroit. It's actually a really good dunkel.

Anyone else want one?

Oh...and some video for your enjoyment...

A dunkel is a dark beer Actually, that's all dunkel means in German, dark. It's a lager too. Does that help?

Anybody around tonight?

(Rummaging for beer)

Finally got a new computer up a going. Gotta send the other to the shop and see if it can be salvaged.

Jeez... guess I’ve been gone a while. Plenty dusty in there..

Downloading antivirus updates for this new setup here. It makes things slow on my connection. Thought I’d leave stop in and say howdy.

(Digging into magic ditty bag)

Here’s a case of Redhook ESB and a couple bottles of Yellow Tail to pass around.

And great pics of the Windmill Burn, Sput...

Be back soon enough...

RobbiDobbs comes in. There is a fine layer of dust on the bar, but it's remarkably cleaner than the last time she came in. She helps herself to the Red Hook, lights a cigarette.

Here, Kitty, kitty, kitty!

Blowing bubble in her beer for effect.

Well, the movie I narrated was shown. I was then told by the director it would be re-recorded/edited. He wants it to become "world famous", so I need to make myself available on w/e's for an indefinite time. I also connected with a videographer who makes real estate clips for tv & web ads, and he wants me to VO them. I was also informed of some projects coming up for Fish & Wildlife. I'm pretty stoked about this news, but foresee all the work at the same time.
After the showing, I had to do some serious escaping, so I went to see Star Wars and had a lovely time. Today I went to a friend's and worked on my truck. It's going to need a frame puller to fix properly. Damn.

How bout you?

Wow, sounds like your getting some recognition, very nice. Bummer bout the bad frame, what kinda truck you got? I had a pretty busy but productive weekend:
Got my garage cleaned out, fixed 3 computers, saw Star Wars, threw a b-day party for my friend and still managed to get enough sleep.
Got a few chores to finish this week, dumping all the stuff from the garage, throwing a dread party (from which i should emerge with a head full of natty dreads, woot), making all my jigs to start hammering out my dome for BM.

Looking forward to this weekend however as I can finally start working on the Dome...

Whoo-dee-whoo! about the dome making project.
Do you know why no one has made a Bucky ball designed geodome? Where each section is the same length and the joints have 3 prongs? Is there a structural integrity issue?

I have a Tacoma, and I mooshed the left front fender months ago, had the major (obviously illegal if left unrepaired) stuff replaced, and have been trying to save money to get the job finished. It's going to be more expensive than previously envisioned...but aren't these things always so?

I just got a phone call, so I need to take it.

No need to answer the dome question, I'm just curious.

I need to go to sleep now though. I'm glad about your successful w/e.

sorry I didn't reply before you left, I post from work ; ;

anyway, I"ve seen pics of a larg bucky ball (like) structure from a rave somewhere. Not sure if it was functional (got bigger and smaller) but seems to me the biggest issue would be controlling its size. IE. without something holding it in position gravity would force it into its smallest config. Might be kinda expensive to work out...

well, sleep tight

OK. I'm awake enough now to make some java. Nothing fancy though, just some cowboy coffee since I can't find the filters. Just let the grounds settle out.

BBS walks in, blinks eyes at the light change, wanders over to old-style perc-o-matic, and pours a cuppa coffee...

'Morning, all! Mmmm... strong and black, something I can sink my teeth into! Was tasting wines this weekend, as well as starting to get all my gear together. Amazing how much stuff grows legs and wanders off into the most amazing of places... That and working for darn near everyone... at least tthe OT is OK...

Yeah, I got blisters last night cutting up cds to use as decoration. So many projects, so little time, not enough help from the mrFishist.

Poof.
