    PAD from last week

    I went overboard and ended up with a very nice haul! First: a beautiful Peterson from user Brunello. It's a great smoker, and you can be sure that any of the pipes he sells will be very well packed and arrive quickly. And it's a great smoker too! Second: an eBay score, Karl Erik Knute...

    I'm back

    After a several year break (no reason to go into details) I'm back to smoking a pipe and have been missing the Bretheren here.

    Headphones only - bedroom listening rig

    This is my very small listening setup in the bedroom - a vintage NAD 7125 Receiver and a Sony SCD-CE595 SACD / CD Player.   Headphones are a set of Pioneer SE-A1000's and a vintage  set of Sony MDR-V6's that need a new set of earpads. No pics of the headphones yet, but will when time allows...

    What in the Wide Wide World of Sports is going on here?

    Hello all.  Been way too long since I popped in and said hey! Been busy with work, new baby is now 11-months old.   (Wife and I thought we were way past that stage in life, but the Good Lord thought otherwise and blessed us with a perfect baby boy last May.) Still working at Ozark Steel as a...

    Spatchcock Chicken on the UDS

    A little Spatchcock Chicken for lunch.  Went on the UDS (Ugly Drum Smoker) about 9:30, and the internal temp hit 165-F about 11:40. Smoked it at 260-degrees, then flipped it over and bumped the temp up to about 320 for the last 20-minutes (to crisp the skin). I used a little too much dry rub...

    UFO Sighting or RC 'Flying Trash Can Lid' ?

    Actually, it's called 'The Nutball' - a 24" flying disc. Simple 3-channel control (Rudder, Elevator, and Throttle) and super cheap to build - this one is made from 1/2" foam board. It's a quick build using low-temp hot glue, is ugly as can be, but the potential exists for many hours of fun.  Not...

    Alright - Who did it? (bombed)

    Today I get home from work to find a small USPS Priority Mail package in the mailbox. I did recently order some crap for my RC Planes (parts) but just ordered them Friday, so I knew that was out. The package came from Alabama, so that limited the choices/suspects even more. I open the box to...

    Been away for a couple weeks

    After an infamous return, i'm sorry to have been away the last couple weeks. Sickness in my immediate family, a very close relative in less-than-favorable health, and other BS issues that pop up on occasion. Anyway, should be back to normal.  Of course 'Normal' for me is of  questionable...

    Twas a good day to fly (RC - that is)

    Planes I took to the flying field today: 1. Great Planes - Electrostik (old thrasher) 2. Eflite - Rare Bear (speedy) 3. Great Planes - Cub 40 (the old girl) Had a good day, good visit with several others at the field, and several good flights. Cub needed a little more tuning, but good to go...

    Suspicious Looking Package in the Mail today.

    Addresses have been colored over to protect the innocent (and not so innocent :twisted:  ) Let's just say, when I saw it was from AJ, I had to proceed with extreme caution. Of course the usual metal detector was used, followed by a geiger counter. Next the dogs were called in, but they picked...

    Talked to Dutch on the phone late yesterday evening.

    And I can honestly say that after talking to him for well over an hour late yesterday evening, he must look 100% exactly like his avatar.  (it really is him)   :lol!: Just messing with you, Brother.  Enjoyed that chat, and look forward to many more to come. It was very nice to hear the...

    Been one heck of a summer for me

    Well all, it's been one hell of a spring/summer for me.  Many of you know I got into the lawn care business a while back, and have been working on growing the business.   Luckily i've been roughly doubling the amount of business I have each year, and this year was no exception.  I actually had...

    Just for You, Dr. T !

    I changed my Avatar just for you, Dr. T.  That's the real me, though it was taken  a couple of years ago in the fall. No more Emperor Palpatine.  I played that one out a little too long.  Change is a good thing. Besides, I can see where some people could possibly get the wrong impression of me...

    Had an unexpected visitor at Friday morning's first lawn

    Yes - this was not who/what I expected to see Friday morning when I pulled up to the first lawn of the day. " /> My first thought was 'Oh yeah, Chicken & Dumplings for dinner'. lol 8)
