They actually made us plant palm trees. I was disgusted. I thought by going to war all of the money wasting "base beautification" would be over.

The batch plant for the concrete and asphalt during a dust storm. This is where the surfing surge pile was.

Kennecott Utah Copper. Looking directly at the wall that eventually fell in. To give you an idea of the enormity, those are 240 ton trucks on the road down there.

The story on the guy pointed out above.
Attempted to kill her with a propane bottle and a match. Was restricted to base
When the families came back to the beach to give depositions he somehow knew they were coming. With a nine, killed the wife, and tried to cap the prosecutor, wife's mom, and his aunt.
Fled to MX, couldn't speak the language was caught in TX, sent to Charleston Naval Station.
Broke out went back to MX couldn't speak the language again and as I recall was caught in TX again.
Sent to Leavenworth, broke out of max and received two bullets for his troubles.
My understanding is that he has been a model prisoner since. Last time I looked him up, he was within a few of years of getting out. He may walk among us now.

A view of helicopter logging from my front yard. The center log was 4 feet in diameter & you could hear the choppers gearbox straining.
This pilot was AMAZING, he would swing the load of logs ahead of him & then land them EXACTLY in their place.
This "entertainment" went on for a week.

This is me in 1955 at Santa Ana Airport. The airplane is a P51 Mustang, one of my all time favorites.

Looks like a hori
Perfect detonation ( blowing apart the rock and soil above a coal seam so it can be mined )

Looks like a horizontal 9/11.

I don't even remember when I first learned the name, been a weather buff since I was a kid. A weather spotter training session I was at covered them in an amusing way. They showed well defined ones and describing them as teenage mammatus and the stretched out ones as granny mammatus. Mammatus clouds themselves pose no threat but are usually an indication there is severe weather nearby. They form on the underside of the top of the anvil of a large thunderstorm away from the main base.

Amazing Hand Paintings – The Work of Artist Guido Daniele


Never Wash Your Hands? It'll take him four hours to do one hand. He then photographs it for posterity. I cannot imagine how he does it, the eyes are so remarkably lifelike. It took him 10 hours to do the two-handed Eagle picture.

Been in the high 90's lately. Took a few trips to the Lake (Beaver Lake) after work. There's a quiet little cove near my friends house where a Great Blue Heron likes to hang out. My buddy said he's always wanted to jump off the pole in the middle of the pic so I led the way, swam out and climbed and leaped off. Tough getting up from the water.

A guy I work with does carvings on antler and bone,etc. Cools stuff, he likes my artwork so we worked out a trade. I'm a flyfishing fan, so he carved out this moose horn for me in trade for one of my paintings.

I probably posted this in the old thread, BUT, this is such a once-in-a-lifetime shot (at least for me) that I am posting it again. Enjoy

Flight to San Jose uneventful leading to our bus/ferry ride to Cobano... we have decided how much we like boats. As a couple we have a handful in different sizes styles and types, but the bottom line is row, sail, inboard or outboard and even car ferry's we like boats.... Car ferry Puteranus to Nicoya peninsula... We had the freaky clouds(earlier pics you guys were naming clouds, these we freaky) dark black huge storm behind melting into the sunset on the horizon. Internitent lighting flashes that pulsed three times like they were in a light show, spidering across the sky or towards the water...

I started a new project today, I had an old pecan slab in the barrage and decided to start working on it. First chore is to make one side flat, so I made a frame it of MDF that I can use my router on top cut away the warp in the wood. This Is going to be a while, my router just blew a bearing so tomorrow I'll be shopping for a new one. Any suggestions?

The Slab ~6' x 18" x 2" thick

What the grain looks like, should make a really nice coffee table.

I'll post pictures of the final table.

Some subjects simply refuse to accept the programming...its an anomoly in the program.

I would suggest sending Mr. Smith to tune him up...

This is a little "ravine" I found on a mushroom hunt last year. I took this with a regular lens, no fisheye. There is a little waterfall in the center.
