  1. Greyhound Escorter Finished

    Thread Mining Alert.......Just wanted to drop by and let you know that the episode of American Restoration with Big Mikes Escorter, finally featured on Australian TV last night. Only 25 months after you guys got to see it! It did look pretty nice.
  2. Book signing and photo show - January 27th, 2014

    (cue Maxwell Smart voice) Missed by that much! I will be in NYC for Super Bowl, arriving Feb 1. Good luck with the signing. Will I be able to pick up a copy at B&N while I am in town?
  3. Hall of Presidents - United States Pavilion

    You had a cool grandfather Craig!
  4. Raymond Lowey Google Doodle

    I cant believe that a man with an huge body of work, that still touches our everyday lives, is virtually unknown and unheralded. (outside of special interest groups like ours). Maybe he should have designed "twerking", then at least others may have heard of him. :(
  5. Sad news - we lost a member

    Vale bagels. Condolences to his family.
  6. One for the rocket fans

    With the blue skies and sunny days, all you needs is some palm trees in the background and it could be the rocket garden at KSC. Oh,...... and lose the suits!
  7. RIP Scott Carpenter and Godspeed

    Vale Scott Carpenter. Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there, I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung My eager craft through footless halls of air.... Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace. Where never lark, or even eagle flew — And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod The high untrespassed sanctity of space, - Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
  8. The Zeppelin was very interesting. So much more advanced than the old Goodyear blimp that would lob in our hangar at Ansett in the 90s. Fly by wire, tail rotors and pitch motors......who would have thunk it? There was a recent news story on TV the other night about Aeroscraft in California rolling out their new ship. Interesting "landing gear". http://defense-update.com/20130911_aeroscraft.html
  9. Time to use that money you keep under your mattress

    On my last 2 visits to NY, I have bought a hop on hop off bus tour ticket on the blue City Sights bus and this includes a express 86th floor ticket. The 102 floor add on from the machine on 86th floor cost $17. When in Rome.....
  10. Some Expo 67 info

    Been doing a bit of thread mining after researching a upcoming trip to our (Australia) nations capital. I wanted to visit the National Museum of Australia in Canberra and found this: http://www.nma.gov.au/exhibitions/australia_at_expo_67/home Thought some may be interested.
  11. Yesterday and Today

    Thats very cool.

    Now that I know what type of lamp it is, i was able to google it. My God they are ghastly! Cant say I have ever seen one before. But I can see the facination from a young boys point of view, after seeing one at Grandmas.

    Sorry for the thread mine....but I finally watched this ep of CSI:NY last night! I missed the original airing here, at the time we were about 2 seasons behind the US, and the broadcast time seems to shift every week. Anyhoo, the local DVD store was having a closing down sale and I picked up an ex rental season 6 for $7. Then last night Blue Bloods, one of my 2 guilty TV pleasures along with Mythbusters, wasnt on so we watched Manhattanhenge. REALLY great work Trey. My wife and kids were stoked to see all the things we visited in the park last November. My 10yo son was excited to catch a glimpse of the park benches under the Rocket Thrower, where we sat for about 20 mins, whilst I tried to explan what they would have seen there 48 years ago. One question about the home furnishings. What was the item that looked like a bird cage with liquid dripping down the bars? Its probably a lamp or a "Hawaiian" girl behind a waterfall type 60s kitch, but it has me intrigued.
  14. The sad state of the park today

    Going through my photos from my recent trip to NYC, I came across one that I took of the mosaic in Gotham Plaza. I guess it wont be long before its filled in with concrete like the others.
  15. I had my first trip to Disneyland in early Nov 2012 at 47 yrs old! One of the few things I wanted to see was "Its a Small World".....and it was closed!! Hopefully I dont have to wait another 47 years to see it in action! I did enjoy Mr Lincoln though.
