What's wrong with this picture? - 05/26/11 12:05 PM
My wife and I frequent a local burger joint in the Wake Forest/Raleigh area that we really enjoy: Spinner's Grill in Raleigh, Wakefield Commons, next to the movie theater. If you like good burgers and fries, this is the place for you! They even play fun music, thus "Spinners", in relation to vinyl albums that used to spin on a turn table. I guess you could still say that for CDs today since technically they spin as well, but I think the term is more exclusive to the old vinyl records.
Anyway, on one of my recent visits, I was (18 comments)
Shuttle Endeavor from ABOVE the clouds - 05/25/11 02:58 PM
First, let me say this is one of the coolest photos of a Space Shuttle I've ever seen. I've not seen it from this perspective before, as I cannot defy gravity for very long.
When I first saw this photo, I thought it was a rocket. But it's Space Shuttle Endeavor from above the clouds, way far away! You don't want to be too close to something packed with explosive fuel travelling about 17000 miles an hour. There was a shuttle training aircraft that took this photo shortly after the launch, and so this is a public domain photo. (9 comments)
How to make a saw bench / cut board - 05/24/11 05:45 PM
How to make a saw bench / cut board One of the most crucial tools that we have for cutting is the saw board, also called the cut board. It has two sides, and is actually both!
It holds the mitre saw (yes, I prefer the Olde English spelling for that, instead of miter; it just looks better!) in place and allows the material to slide easily back and forth for the cuts. This is especially useful for lengths that are longer than 8', with crown moulding (see? Olde English again!) and other trim.
Things that make me laugh - 05/17/11 04:01 PM
On a recent weekend trip to Boston we were going to see a play that my wife wrote about 12 years ago. The play was put on in a small theatre, but really well done and enjoyable! On the flight up, I saw this sign on the plane. It made me laugh. See if you can figure out why before you scroll down.
I didn't realize it was against airline policy to break a lit cigarette in half, so I'll stop doing that now.
