    I think it looks great as it is as well! Age can be very sad, but a great texture for light to play with.

    All the pictures were at the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre at Quainton near Aylesbury. One of the stations on the Original Metropolitan Railway - at the far reaches of 'Metro-Land'.

    Very much worth a look if you're in the area.

    Wheelie bins (wheeled garbage cans) on the curb for garbage day; awaiting their turn to get dumped by the dustman (garbage man) into his dust lorry (garbage truck).
    Contrary to intuition, the green can is garbage, and the blue can is recycling.

    Doesn't get much more "random" than this.

    Not a mushroom hunter, though I wish I knew enough to find the safe ones. Sometimes the woods around here are just full of them.

    thought this was a funny pic

    Yesterday I was at an astronomers get together doing solar viewing. Bring around noontime we had the sun's glare above us, we an impromptu dark room was improvised. While the concept was successful we failed to recognize that theres kids of all ages there, one actually tripped on the canvas

    However, there is no denying that the Miata is THE most successful sports car in the world by numbers. The statistics tell it all. It was so successful the name Miata was more well known than Mazda (oops). They even tried to shake off the Miata name for MX-5 (unsuccessfully).

    From an engineering standpoint, the miata is one of the most balanced production cars ever produced. 50/50 balance front/rear, left/right and even axially (roll). It was one of those right place at the right time thing for Mazda - they resurrected the British roadster and set trends for decades to come.

    Lucky me, I found this inexpensive host to put a 405hp LS6 engine from z06 corvette / cts-v. It's going to retain most of it's 50/50 balance since it's an aluminum block. Ok.... I should stop rambling

    Now you know my OTHER hobby.

    by enthusiasts
    Bullet roadsters are the most potent,a small company stuffing lexus V8's into them ... they're just down the road from me (50miles)
    here is a link for you... might find some good info (just in case you didn't already know of them)

    WELCOME or search bullet roadcars if this link doesn't work

    I always thought they should have put a rotary engine in them... 20B would have been supercar territory @450bhp

    Here's more proof that I was the sysop (pronounced "") {short for "system operator"} of a dial-up BBS from 07-21-89 through 07-21-99.

    This is my name tag used during the Western Lights Convergence 1992 when Searchlight BBS Software had a significant upgrade.

    I was operating my BBS with Searchlight BBS software when this gathering was held.
    Western Lights was held in mid-November 1992; I remember getting a ride from my now-deceased best friend Paul Casey to the event (it was significantly south of downtown Seattle where I lived at the time) -- Paul also ran Searchlight BBS software on his own BBS at the time.

    For a car that'll be used as a weekend toy, that's fine. But rotary engines are absolutely p*ss poor when it comes to reliability.

    You know, not giving it enough gas before you let the clutch go, and then the engines dies.

    That actually rarely happened. The car was only 1300 pounds. Just the inertia from the engine would kick it forward.

    I bet the guy who accidentally left this behind shouted "O {censored}!!!" rather loudly when he got his front-end loader back to the garage and looked at the end of the arm.
    Another front-end loader nearby already had its bucket, so I know that machine didn't lose one.

    Seen along Military Rd. S. in Federal Way WA. USA on 05-23-09.

    Old book and glasses:



    Stitch from our '08 trip to Japan. This is from the Satsuma Brewery looking over Kirishima-shi, Kagoshima. The far right tree in the foreground, the cherry blossoms can be seen.



    An overdone shot of the blossoms during spring in Kirishima Japan. (This is a re-sample from a much larger print size and is pretty hacked here. At the moment I'm lazy to adjust it for the appropriate size. I'll do it later. )



    An roll-sweet red bean Japanese pastry roll.



    Enjoy

    This fellow was crossing my garden at 4 p.m. a strange hour for him who's a real night guy.





    As you can see he wasn't overly worried about the camera either.
