A Line in the Sand

Dammit. I’m adding a little note here to deal with something that I have had just about enough of… I’m doing it. I’m doing it… I’M DRAWING A LINE IN THE SAND!! Oh wait… I am tired of hearing/seeing the expression “drawing a line in the sand.” I hate, hate, hate this expression. It comes

I’ve been thinking about Vallejo’s Model Air paint and pondering its use– since the rumors of the death of Testors just roll on and on and Vallejo’s paint is available in most big cities. Here’s the deal– it seems to dry a bit slower than MM Acryl or Tamiya, and this is a very good

I’ve fallen down a rabbit hole clearly marked “Atlantic Fleet” and I’ve only now come up for air and realized that I’ve been neglecting my posse. I’m not nearly as dedicated to simple acts of kindness as this fellow: I mean. Damn. Man got some ‘coons going there. Anyway, this will be, in addition to

Lots of people have been trying to talk the problem of space flight to death. Space X is actually doing something about it. Right now, at 17:00 Central Daylight Time the final portion of the Demo 2 Mission to the ISS is getting ready to start up. If everybody were like me, the streets would
