  1. Reading Material

    Just a quick note before I'm off to bed: if at all possible try to avoid reading Trainspotting on a deadline... I had to read half of it in one evening to allow me to get on with my research paper and it was not a fun experience. Decent enough book I suppose, but reading it is something of am uphill battle. Phonetic Scottish slang isn't the easiest thing in the world to read quickly.Anyway it's 2:18am and I have class at 10:00 so I'm gonna bugger off for a few days. Hopefully when I emerge from ...
  2. Another weekend finally over

    <p>I've said it before and I'll say it again, I hate weekends.&nbsp; Mind you, I', not really in love with my job and want to get there as soon as possible, but the weekends are becoming more and more difficult.&nbsp; With Alex a month away from becoming an official adult but not yet out of school and Mr C bridling at the constraints of his physical limitations things have been getting increasingly tense.&nbsp; More often than not it's easier not being in the house.</p><p>But ...

  3. Time Travel Bad?

    Just watching a bit of TV again today when I should be studying (big shocker) and I think it's official. I might have to repeal or at least amend my previous views on time travel.I used to say that time travel was the worst thing to happen to TV shows. Star Trek Enterprise is a good example of this: cool concept, limitless universe of possibilities, but instead they fudge it all by starting the show with a temporal cold war... garbage! Almost as bad as alien Nazis and evil parallel universes... ...
  4. On to the next competition

    <p>Hello all!&nbsp; So I won the Ebay competition and Poor Highbulp Billy lost.&nbsp; He gets to pick the next theme.&nbsp; I wonder what it will be?&nbsp; What ever it is I think I'll do another WIP of it.&nbsp; I like the feed back, it keeps me focused and my friend Wendy the lurker gets to see what I'm doing and read all your comments, which she really likes.&nbsp; Say hi to her if you post to me.&nbsp; She'll get a kick out of it.</p><p>My family ...

  5. Nothing to see here

    ... Yet!I figured it was about time I tried to do another one of these things. I've got a lousy track record for updating websites, but I figure there's a good chance I'll keep this one alive because I'm on Coolmini on a regular basis. Here's hoping I'm right.Hopefully I'll have some sort of layout figured out soon. These templates always leave something to be desired
  6. Howdy

    Been a bit since my last update.  Sorry for that been a bit busy around here.  Haven't been doing much painting lately except on a couple of Christmas Projects (15 Christmas Villiage houses oh my).  Things around here have gone from bad to good - the GF lost her job the first of September and after a month off and looking, went to work for the same company I work for, on a different account in a different building here in Big A.  And, as we put it when I was working overseas, ...

  9. I finally finished one!

    <p>I finally finished&nbsp;a whole mini.&nbsp; I paint slow.&nbsp; I just can't seems to call something done.&nbsp; That's why I do competitions.&nbsp; I have a deadline and have to call something done by a certain date.&nbsp; In this case it was a mini for a small monthly competition at a group on Ebay.&nbsp; I'm especially pleased with this one because the whole thing gelled so easily.</p><p>What some people don't know (those who have followed the ...

  10. Another windy day

    <p>So it was wild and windy in the desert today.&nbsp; They routed the big rigs through the Antelope Valley to get them off the Grapevine (Antelope Velley=valley I live in that's the ass end of hell.&nbsp; Grapevine=Tejon pass where most of the shipping via truck goes through to get fromanyway to LA and back.&nbsp; Notorious for High winds and bad weather).&nbsp; So a mile from my house there's a pile=up involving several cars and 8 big rigs.&nbsp; It took me an hour to ...
