Classical Gas

Or more appropriately, Tyco doodling #4. Came back from a lovely visit to eldest daughter in Albuquerque. AC in car was busted, so long trip through what the Spanish Conquistadors aptly named, the "Journey of Death," through the New Mexican high desert. Lucky for us, it only took 3 1/2 hours of roas...

It’s a bit like rap ‘music’ - I just don’t get it. Must be my age or something.
Ah, rap music. I suppose one has to thank the USA for that musical virus. Whilst serving with Brown Bess,

Re: England at war

I read a little history, so I’m not willing to admit to senility, yet. However, a quick glance about the globe, moreover with the other players of the day, Britain looks pretty good. Not every British activity has been unvarnished benevolence, obviously, but there are mechanisms in its rule of law t...

Re: Steampunk anyone?

Hornby is quite brave to take this plunge. Can’t say it is terribly cute, the way Thomas thrilled everyone (butnot me, I’m more of a Nessie guy). This reminds me of Lionel’s pink and pastel girl’s train set of the 1950’s, and it was a terrible bust. People who enjoy the Steam Punk ethic will spend d...

The Civil Defense Siren comes to life in sleepy Armodilloville. What is the crisis? Why is it blaring, shattering the peace
of this tiny Texas town?
