    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    We had some light ice which made everything crunchy and crusty. Now in the 24 waiting period (aka panic mode) for the next big storm, due Tues night. Folks here were complaining about the "heavy" snows we've had this year. I had to remind them that 22-24" per year is average for this area, and we've been so dry for years they've forgotten what "normal" midwest winters are like.
  2. The colors are great and I like the glowing eyes effect. The bright green dragon(?) around his neck stands out though, might take that color down a notch with some shading or wash.

    "Broccoli" happens. Move on and don't waste the effort agonizing over it. I can't stand it when someone has an emotional meltdown over every trivial speedbump in their life.

    Quite a nice stone effect you achieved.

    You have your orders!

    Trooper Wagner surveys the wooded area behind the church. The trees are very still. Pilot Captain Becker approaches. "You have your orders, trooper! Why do you stand here?" "Search the woods, and quickly. The Commander will arrive soon and you do not want to disappoint him."

    Reaper weapon packs - anyone know if metal or plastic?

    IIRC Bombshell has a fantasy weapon sprue that is more delicately scaled and might better suit the old Grenadier models.

    I should clarify. In the summer we drink iced tea, which is not at all the same as cold tea. Cold tea is unpleasant. Iced tea is refreshing.

    Something's not quite right

    Thanks for all the comments and stay tuned. :)

    Mrs. Bowes makes her way into the village. It's a lovely morning, but.... She can't shake the feeling that something is not quite right. Even the sheep seem unusually disturbed.

    Hot tea every morning and afternoon. Cold tea during the summer with meals. Valentine's candy started going onto shelves around christmas, and Easter soon after that.

    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    Yup. Snowed pretty hard yesterday. Round two due in a few hours. https://www.wibw.com/content/news/White-out-conditions-in-Kansas-City-Multiple-wrecks-stretch-of-I-70-closed-505901321.html
  15. Got to see Aquaman last night. It was pretty, but also predictable, trope laden, and badly paced. At the start it felt like the story was moving way too quickly, and then later there are sequences where major plot events happen in about 30 seconds. There's no character development in any of the characters, they're all thin as paper. Also the writers missed lots of opportunity to show human pathos, especially since the main character is supposedly trying to save the surface world. As I said, the visuals are pretty, there's lots of special effects, the soundtrack is even decent. If you're looking for entertainment and 2 hours of popcorn eating, you could do worse.

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    Meals at the con were abandoned, except for meet-n-greet which has been pizza the last couple years. With ~100 people it was a nice idea, but with 500-1000 people now it would just be a hassle. The hotel restaurant has sit-down lunch service but last year DH and friends waited a very long time for it, almost missed class because it was so slow. YMMV. There's also a coffee shop in the lobby, if a mocha latte and a muffin count as lunch. We drove the half mile or so to the nearby fast food and sandwich places most days.

    03329: Hannah Blackruby, Female Wizard.

    She looks nice. Don't forget to paint the base. :) For pics I'd suggest moving the lamps, if possible. Judging by the shadows the light is hitting the figure on the side not seen by the viewer, so we are seeing her in shadow. You want the light and the camera to be on the same side.

    What kind of chocolate are you looking for? If it is the cheap novelty chocolate in bags, then try grocery stores and drug stores. Although they may not start discounting for a day or two. The best prices don't come for a couple weeks yet. If you want really good quality chocolate, single source or fair trade then I would look in coffee shops, and at Cost Plus. A few grocery stores, like Whole Foods will also have it.

    https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/articles/how-to-make-bacon-in-the-microwave Doesn't sound like the problem was something you caused. Congrats on the "enhanced hearing" skill. I am constantly asking my husband "What is that noise?" and getting "What noise?" in reply.

    This. We don't make a big fuss about it. Sometimes we pick a nice restaurant, sometimes we go for burgers, sometimes I make a nice dinner at home. I like chocolate, but I don't need (or want) a huge box of it, especially the cheap stuff they sell for the occasion.

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    El Matador was the place we went last year. ~2 miles up University. Good food and lots of it. I think next time DH and I will share an entree. They have a huge dining room with large tables, if you want to go as a group.
