Ohhhhh, Eddie! I'm sooo sorry for you nose! I've done that to myself, too. I got sooooo sick. Get better! Lots of chicken soup, laced with CA debonder. (just kidding about the debonder!)


Sean, Steve, I'll try. It's very hard to get pictures to correctly illustrate my problem. Pictures simply are no substitute for a good PAIR of eyes!

Hey DW

Boy talk about a nail biter just does not get any closer than that, and that is what makes pro ball such a great game.

My school friend Big Benny Davidson started playing for Oakland in the 60's and i have been hooked ever since.

Don W, you are one unlucky dude at times! - mate go out and buy a lottery ticket because life has a strange way of balancing things out.
You may be right, Steve. I'm buying a lotto ticket for Wednesday's pull. If I hit, I'll be seeing you real soon, mate .

Sean- You poor fella, I don't feel so cheated now after your story . We shoulda been born pack mules....

Eddie, G Don-
You can have the Cowboys, they're no longer part of my life . I think the coaches tell them "get out there and give us all 75% of you got!"

Hi DW

In my years of pro racing if the Boss is not a real cool guy, the team is not 100 percent.

If the boss is a really cool they give 110 percent, sports teams run the same way.

Now and then a great coach & owner comes along and each guy really goes all out for them and dominate for a few years, like Roger Penske and Chuck Knoll to name two.

Jerry is just not one of those guys!!

Just my 2 c worth

I was dating a lady in the 70's that had a big crush on then QB Craig Morton, i became a Denver guy too.

We had to watch each game to keep her happy, Heidi was a neat chick too.

She went to work in Beverly Hills and lost her to a 3 pc suit dude.

Token on-topic comment: ......... Well, shucks. I can't think of anything. Both Dory and I are oddballs, and don't follow sports much. Heck, we're barely watching the America's cup, and it's going to (Did? Can't find good info at all on it.) happen right here!


Hey, eagle watchers: post the link for me? I want to watch, too. We have 'em around here, but no eagle cams. If there's a perigrine cam still going, I'll post that one here.

Today I saw good news: It's no eagle, but there's a red tail nest just across the way at work. I saw one working on it just now. I'll try to get pictures. I remember one time two years ago when mom was feeding baby, and dad was waiting nearby. He dropped baby's breakfast, and I SWEAR I saw him sneak a look to see if mom saw it fall, before taking off to find another tidbit. I'll try to get pictures- they're rather unpredictable.

Hi Guys

I need to bend a 1/8" thick sheet of balsa 1 3/4" wide, 1/8" against the grain over a lengh of 5"

Was thinking of soaking it in hot water and clamping until dry, do you think this idea will work? or is there a better plan but i can't use any chemicals i'am way too sensitive.

It is my fuse bottom and it just does not feel right clamping it while the glue drys with that much of a strain on the wood. It would sure be better just clamp & glue with the curve in it.

Thanks for any input.

Thanks, Don!


Sean, I got the covering today. Tough stuff! I can just picture it covering a full scale (real) airplane. Neat-o!

I'll give it a go when I get a chance. Tomorrow and Wednesday look full, maybe Thursday. I am eager to see if it'll take the dye. Just imagine someone trying to do a whole plane this way. Hah!

Yeah Katie, it is tough. It would work good on larger models, not for 2M stuff though.
