Gulf Island Building.


Is there an album with photos?

Instead of reading through this thread?

Hi gang...well thanks for keeping the thread going. Maybe I should just hang around to see what develops!

Boy, we've got space shuttle chat, cows in Nebraska and Bud trying to hook up with that sexy little nurse.

Bud, didn't they tell you, this is a family site...

Everyone deserves to be answered, so I will try to do that in some sort of order.

I enjoy checking in and tracking your progress.

You have inspired me to tackle a very ambitious project at my house--pictures of which I will get around to posting someday soon. Maybe I will start my own project showcase thread!
Thanks Vinny.

Well, did you get around to posting some pics yet? Let me know OK, thanks.

Hi to Timothy, Bootz and lagerhead...thanks for dropping by, things are slowly improving. Just sort of a whole lot of things that all happened at once, but have now pretty much turned themselves around.

Now if we could just get the weather to turn around...7 days of rain in the immediate forecast. Don't need that.

Nice "January/ Spring"...eh? Have been collecting 'BIG JUICY' worms off of the road out front of house, and 'they' don't usually come here until ..."april"!!! I am gonna try and 'create' a good "environment' for them to live in, and ...yes...would love to 'hear' how to make them...."happy'!!! List members????
Hi Syd. Well, you know the latest already.

Syd lives across from me on Vancouver Island in case you didn't know. We now have a VERY interesting mutual hobby. One that I have been away from for way too long. I'll get to that shortly.

Been digging out in the bay here Syd to get a better place to moor the runabout. There seems to be quite a few big worms here in the sand...are they worth trying to save at all? Not sure if they are the kind the guys use for fishing or not.

Bud, you don't need a telescope to see the ISS. In fact, it would be very difficult to keep track of it with a scope because it moves so quickly across the sky. It will travel across your visible sky in about three minutes. It moves at 18,000 miles per hour.

It is very easy to see with the naked eye...in fact, if it was going over near where you are it would be hard NOT to see it. It is very bright, and best seen without optical aid, or perhaps with binoculars.

I'll see if I can get you a link to a site which shows where the ISS is going over.

If I have to write it...then you have to read it. Seems fair to me!

I don't mind that, but everyone else is writing crap too. I'm not going through 300 pages

Work is slow right now, but not that slow.

I saw your model. I'll just assume it looks like that and say "good job, sir!"

You're missing out on a LOT if you don't read the whole thing.

What I don't know can't hurt me...

I don't know what I'm missing...

Ignorance is bliss...



So, what are we talking about, cows in space? gee...

If I read one page in 5 minutes it would take me 25 hours to read the whole thread. So, one hour per day, that's 25 days...

More realistically, if I devoted 30 minutes a day to this thread I could finish by April, if no new pages were added.

Ain't gonna happen.
