Thinking about the 5 year plan, did anyone in 2016 think we would be where we are today?


Not quite but I did discern a similar potentiality in 2018-19... Our Pacific Five Eyes Partners are well on their way to fully implementing 5 Year Plans and a matter of Governance (if they haven't already).
I will say that Virginia's cannabis laws were a somewhat pleasant surprise, though not entirely unexpected considering the circumstances.

August 20:  Have you bought any cool new (or new to you) products recently?

 

Aug 21st: Share pix of said items? (Remember Pix are fine; shopping links are not)

 


I've been slowly but surely acquiring tools to carving stone that's harder than the alabaster I'm somewhat used to.  Recently purchased a flex shaft rotary tool that's a knock off of a Foredom and several styles of grinding bits-a set of electroplated diamond bits with 3/32 inch diameter shafts and a few sintered diamond bits with 1/4 inch shafts.  Sorry no pics. 🙁

Mostly STL files from Patreons and MMF.

Nothing really new to me aside form the designs.

 

Although this one made me really happy!

I bought Dye Sublimation Printer paper.  Our local library system has Innovation Centers.  One of the three has a Dye Sublimation printer.  I am trying to make a Ancestral Fan Chart quilt that shows our Mayflower ancestors for the next gettogether for Thanksgiving.  It will be the 400th anniversary of the first Thanksgiving.  So far I have had trouble with the heat transfer part.  It has been too light and splotchy.

I didn't buy it lately (middle of last year), it was greatly backordered and shipping delays due to the pandemic, but I finally got a paint stand from HobbyZone for my Vallejo paints, one of their mdf ones. Showed up 10ish days ago, haven't put it together yet; painting desk is too chaotic right now, it needs cleaned up (ironically the reason why I ordered the paint stand over a year ago...).

 

Otherwise, I try not to spend much if I don't have to right now. Lots of wants though.

Just indulged myself in the additional white metal figures from North Star for Stargrave to go with Quarantine 37. Not a kickstarter, so no link.

I had been eyeing those this week was having trouble deciding if there was enough I want to justify the bundle, or if I'd be better ordering individual minis

August 19:  Do you have any recurring dreams?

Nope. At least not that I remember.  I've had sleep apnea off and on since University (I had a UPPP back then, but gradually developed it again as I got older) and since I've had it I very rarely remember my dreams.

As posted elsewhere, I just acquired these:

Beyond that, not too much.  I did order pizza yesterday.....it was tasty...

 Well, I didn't exactly "buy" it, since I just walked out of work with it and stuffed it in my car, but...

 

Yesterday I acquired a fairly large piece of 1/8th in. laminate that I'll be using for the back wall of a shadow box project I've been slowly working on off and on for awhile now. It was just laying on top of one of the wooden pallets sent to us from a vendor, and ended up on one of the stacks of scrap skids I was moving during yesterday's OT. Although it's 48 x 40 in., I only need a piece around half that size so even though it's a little banged up and/or crappy in some spots there enough nice unblemished area for what I need.

Picked up a 1873 Trapdoor Springfield rifle. This is what Custer's troops were carrying at Little Big Horn.

August 23: What’s the most unusual place you’ve fallen asleep?

Several? Not necessarily unusual for everyone.

  • A yurt in Mongolia.
  • On a train in Russia.
  • The operating table. (staying awake would've been rather disturbing.)

 

Points for trying to fall asleep:

  • Any freaking airport.

(Sorry everyone, and thanks TGP; been a crazy weekend prepping for ReaperCon and handing kid BTS stuff.)

Leaning up against a speaker stack at, I think, a Bolt Thrower concert.
