Hi all, So, I've got the photos here for your viewing, but I can never seem to get the photo stuff on this site to work. My Mrs. says she can get photos to work as posted images on other webboards she's on. Oh well... Anyway, here's the pictures. We really had a great time at the different locations...

speaking of jumping... have you all seen the latest issue of Smithsonian?

That would be the October issue...

There is an article about Phillipe Halsman about jump photography! Page 14.

The Duke and Duchess of York is my favorite jump photo.


You must get that issue.

I've always wondered how reliable the electrical connections are behind that drawer.

Also, if you are used to cooking on an electric stove, I guess it won't be an issue, but for me, I can't stand electric stove tops. Gas is so much more controlable and you can get more heat out of it.

I think the ducting looks better inside than other Mar Vista houses that have it on top of the roof. Exterior ducting on a flat roof makes me always think: 1. that must be really exposed to the elements and thus less reliable 2. there must be a leakage problem with all those penetrations through the...

I got a chance to visit the Henry Ford Museum yesterday before my flight. I had a great time. Highlight of the visit there was the Dymaxion House. Thanks for the suggestions!

I think that brass brazing would look pretty cool against the chrome. Sort of a patina. Maybe add some more brazing in other spots to add some visual interest.

OK, so I'm weird.
