  1. Our new Nobel winner

    Well, guys I was not sure whether I should react to this or not but the number of comments on concerning Al Gore’s Nobel Prize convinced me that I might as well. So, as you all probably well aware by now Mr. Gore and IPCC shared Nobel Peace prize, the fact that immediately stirred discussion about Gore’s contribution as well as what exactly he is contributing to. There are two, possibly more, sides to the discussion. Some people tend to attack underlying science ...
  2. Electroejaculation is difficult to perform in the rhinoceros

    Well, I know, I know in a true blog you are not supposed to make more then one entry per day per person, but I just couldn't help it. My "Silly side of science" wall just got a new addition. This piece here is dedicated to vet. doctors engaged in new extreme sport (see subj)  So, every time you face seemingly intractable problem please remember, it could be much worse, almost as dificult as performing Electroejaculation in the rhinoceros
  3. Why kids hate Science or why I hate multiple-choice tests.

  4. I hate, I hate, I HATE--

    People who are oblivious to the world around them.  This has been a pet peeve of mine for the longest time, and my wife thinks its funny.  But given my background and what the military trained me to do, being aware o what is going on around me is second nature.So, the thing is people just have no idea what is going on outside of their little personal space bubble.  These are the same people who bump into you in the store because they have no clue you are there.  They are the ...
  5. 'Tis the Season to be SCARY!

    It's that time of year again. Vampires start waking from their coffins, werewolves get the itch and zombies burst forth from the ground looking for brains. Halloween is almost here so that means I spend half a day going up and down ladders getting tombstones and containers of decorations unpacked for the haunting season.

    My whole family is into Halloween and it's no surprise (to anyone who knows us) that we go all out for the occasion. Everyone dresses for work/school and the house ...
  6. I love this time of year

    <p>I love this time of year.&nbsp; It's so full of energy and completion.&nbsp; My best memories are of fall&nbsp;afternoons in Wisconsin, the leaves rustling in the breeze, the lake my Grandfather lived on still as glass, the trees in bright bold colors, like they're proud to be trees!&nbsp; </p><p>So many special things have happened in the fall for me.&nbsp; My love told me he loved me in the fall.&nbsp; I was propsed to in the fall.&nbsp; It seems ...
  7. More detail, will I know when to call it done?

    I have added more detail, metallic trimmings and a bone white that looks very bright given all the dark grey.  Although I like the structures the detail is a bear to paint.
  8. The the most ancient "Mr. smiley face" unearthed

  9. Progress on the structures (no bling)

    A couple of shades of grey, some red for the tiles, and metallics for the stained glass windows.  Still has a long way to go but so far so good.  It was a busy week for me, otherwise I would have more accomplished.  I really like painting these guys.Click on the image to get a larger sized view.
  10. Gods what a month.

    Been a bit for me here.  Sorry guys - things went to hell last month around here, and I just didnt feel up to Blogging about it.  Needless to say things are better now, and I should be back to the inane chatter soon.
