    Was that offered as a limited production item at RC 2018, like the resin Murkillor this year? RCon 2018 is where I got mine.
  2. Yup, hounds trained to track and chase raccoons up trees. A really good dog will sell for thousands of dollars and champions ten thousand and above
  3. This is not good. Dreaming that you woke up...that does not end well. Lucky the alarm worked. Thanks. I will try and remember this. I am now out of fettle even though I was doing better right after I had that breakfast.
  4. I am just beginning my day. I had toast, eggs, and bacon with apricot preserves and butter go breakfast. I hope some of you lot are in fine fettle. If anyone is: what is fettle anyway? and why is fine better than coarse fettle, if there’s such a thing as coarse fettle.

    I have never tried. I have one still in its package. It is the Julie Guthrie dragon bust from Reaper, the resin version. Not much to show. I am going to get another from the kickstarter because I realized something. I could use it as a figurehead on a scratchbuild ship. Say for instance a rather OTT Viking drakkar -OR- my own scratchbuild version of the Dawn Treader.
  6. I watch Americas Test Kitchen regularly. I guess I like to imagine I could cook...someday. Anyways, they have shiny, new, gleaming wall ovens and they almost always rotate anything they bake by 180° at the halfway point. Without running tap water even that option is gone.

    My paternal grandmother liked to make lemon chess pie. By some unknown alchemy she would juice 8 lemons and incorporate that much lemon juice in the pie filling. Her lemon pies were LEMON pies; bite into one and they’d bite you back. Just the way my dad liked them. None of her granddaughters have succeeded in replicating her pie; that much lemon juice tends to make the filling soupy (I’m told).

    Do any of these look familiar? Maybe that teacher was really nice and bought 2-3 different sets and combined them into a big glorious pile of blocks.

    Resting, Fungal, Pumpkin thingy, Smolder, Pilot, Ghost, Water Buffalo... ...not really feeling the synergy. But I am slowly getting the Instagram caught up. Ornament is the latest to get out there. https://www.instagram.com/p/B37o_iJh0yD/ If I put two pix out there per day, while drawing one, I should catch up.
  10. A paid vet bill is 90% of the law when the question is: who-owns-at-cat. ***We all know you are now her people. #MEOWstrikesagain
  11. I was OK with the white plastic but the grey is OK ...we really need a shrug smiley.
  12. The moderators here will do that on occasion. Sometimes they will cull posts out of a thread and make a new thread. They move things to keep the threads somewhat true to the original topic or to consolidate all posts about one topic in one place. No worries.
  13. Yay! lasagne. Which of us ‘enjoys’ the worse kitchen? I wonder. Do you have a stove? (I have no stove )

    Here is a picture: The airplane in the upper left. Fokker D-VII. Also the Sinclair Oil Company pebbly skinned, scaly, lizard-like, now-considered-totally-inaccurate dinosaurs. There was a Brontosaurus and a Triceratops. And I don’t care there is no such thing as a Brontosaurus! #PlutoisaplanetAndBrontosaurusarereal.

    That is wise. +1
  16. 99% are fine. TV coverage will make it look like WW3 happened. There were no fatalities. The damage swath was fifteen and three quarters miles long and 1300 yards wide. (25.3 klicks long by 1.2 kilometers wide.) That might sound incredible but Dallas is a sprawling place that covers 385 square miles the damage area was just 12 square miles. 12 out of 385. Dallas took a hit but it’s by no means crippled. Its like an Elephant was hit with a baseball bat. The elephant noticed, it hurts a little, but it will lumber on. For businesses and homes inside that swath it was horribly bad. Six (empty!) schools were hit, none of them will reopen for classes anytime soon. The DISD decided that at least two are a total loss, The remains of those will be bulldozed. The superintendent did announce that the school district has a $600 million rainy day fund for emergencies, so they have money to rebuild with. There was a fire station (# 41) destroyed. A hook and ladder truck is stuck in the fallen building. A McMansion belonging to a Hockey player on the Dallas Stars NHL team got wrecked. Anyone that can stand wall-to-wall TV coverage, the local ABC affiliate streams their news shows via their website. (WFAA.com) Broadcasts happen at 11am, 4pm, 5pm, 6pm, and 10pm (11:00, 16:00, 17:00, 18:00, 22:00 hrs) CST, the same timezone **Reaper HQ is in. They are doing a decent job, giving first hand info, and their weather guys are legit meteorologists explaining the science of it all. **The damage swath was miles and miles away from RHQ.

    Awwww Red... I know what this is like. I am down to a two-bay toaster, a 1250 watt microwave, an upright blender, and a fridge. The broken, old, dodgey, not-sure-it-works anymore, items now outnumber those still functioning.

    Considering that the first ingredient in such spreads is sugar, no, not likely. I am sure you are right. I was just brainstorming on behalf of anyone that dislikes cream cheese icing. Is Nutella the same as a Hazelnut spread? For myself, I like cream cheese icing. I’ve heard of hazelnuts, but never heard of pumpkin rolls before today. I do know a place that makes something they call Roulade. Looks like this: They also do a chocolate version where the filling stays the same but the cake switches to chocolate, the icing on top is chocolate, the decorative piping is white icing. Within the search results when I was trying to find the Roulade I found a pumpkin roll recipe that had a different fillling (ginger butter creme?): https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/pumpkin-roulade-with-ginger-buttercream-recipe-1942815 Ginger buttercreme might be no better than cream cheese icing (really need a shrug smiley) IDK. Here is the picture of the finished confection:

    Elephants with four tusks (like the Mûmak beasts imagined in a certain Peter Jackson movie, but much less massive) once existed. There were Stegotetrabelodons: ...and another species taxonomic wizards have decided to name Gomphotheres. Both long extinct. Both known only as fossils. I had a model for the day 21 picture. Meet F-MU1: You can read a little about her, the gadget that captured this shot, and the British photographer who invented the beetlecam by clicking here.

    I wonder if hazel nut spread would be a good substitute for the cream cheese icing. Might cut the sugar back a little bit?@

    Day 21 :: Elephant / Oliphant (From the Undying Tales List) While I was refining the outlines I was thinking ahead to what I wanted to do about shading it in, if I wanted to put color in the eyes, about how I wanted to render it, which weight of pens I would use... So many options!! Instead I decided to stop and leave this one ‘colorable’. I could have it copied somewhere, maybe try different things. Also at some point my great nephews and great nieces might get a crack at coloring this.
