    I went to San Diego zoo before they created the wild land 'ranch' . Wonder how that ranch is going in this and other fires. I lived in the County of Ventura - Simi Valley. Lived in San Diego and northern central coast. I think the ranch in question was inland a ways. Not a good firm placement.

    I like all three Santa's myself. Dad had a white beard past his belt. He was 91 and was taking foreign language school classes. The small children that were there (private) were in dual language type of program. After a couple of weeks, Dad became a grand Dad to all of the kids. They were going...

    So many of the central and south America tropical trees have a great amount of Silicon within the structure. I suspect this does as well. Since Larry mentioned stains it is likely little use but
    for glory places on instruments that have overcoats of something clear. I'd be concerned with toxic...

    replied to Counterfeit or reverence
    I gave my beloved a ring while in college - we were already married - and this one I ground all facets myself. It was artificial but beautiful. It was cemented together - two halves top/bottom. The glue was deep green. It looks like a large emerald. It is 30mm along the long axis. I used to facet...

  • What I don't understand is the term "Sweep". I see this term used in catalogs / pages on the web but don't know or fear it. And the numbering system #3 or #6 or #11 - tends to say sharpness of the U of the gouge. I can't say slope as in math since there are wide and narrow #5's as example....

    If anyone is wondering where I got the small gold eyes I used in a number of my Christmas Ornie's - they are Eagle Claw, ABERDEEN Sz 3/0 Fish hooks. I use a lineman pliers to cut a length and the sharp barb off. I aim the barb towards the table or a soft catching area. The eyes are hooked to a wire...

    I have been reading what is going on with the sun an that is pondering. The sun is acting up like never before. Bombing huge plumes of Plasma out into space. One glanced us big time - fried a number of older satellites that didn't shut off in time. Electronics doesn't stand a chance with the temp...

    I used to live in the Santa Cruz mountains. We had several fires and a massive mud slide. With luck my lower road was a staging area for the Cal guys in big trucks. I don't like the cavalier attitude of the gov out there in the last few days. Sign of the times... Where are the 767 tankers ? Law...

    replied to Final ornies for this year
    I'm working on two hot ones for the last minute. Dear love came to me and said 'can you do two for my cousins ?" What could I say. Off I went to the carving station. And for this years trade set - they are up on the tree or just under it in case of one. Martin

    Good Luck! - I used to live in Simi Valley with a pool. One of the nicest we owned. Ohi (or how you spell it) caught on fire and my pool was black - The chemical mix was so bad that the pool had to be dumped and refilled after additional cleaning. I still can't believe the Big water bombers didn't...

    Steve - that is a beautiful white carving you have under the ornies ! Thank your beloved for the use. I see now you got the 'boat' sleigh! Mind was wondering for a while since I lost track. [ All I can say is I flew a C-47 right seat from time to time 50+ years ago. No Mil Credit. ] Ok here is...
    This is the six I got.  Wow nice set.

    Dileon - I used to live 2500 NMi south west of Hawaii. I knew short pants and barbecue with skin diving around Christmas. Still we got some winter storms and heavy seas, but heck after the summer nothing phased us much. 77-88 degrees year round. I feel for you - having a finger popping when I...

  • I have a band saw and have cut a few using precision 45 degree milling blocks for my metal mill. Consider taking a 2x or a 4x block and sawing (table, cuttoff.....) a V in the length, with the
    bandsaw slice down the center of the V - but not all the way - maybe half way. Then attach some 'ears'...

  • What I think it is - thin copper - like 100% or with a metal that makes it softer. It is simply sheeted over and 'tapped' into place. Wood sticks like an orange stick - smooth and push into areas. trimmed to design and pushed into shape. Then the copper is flash plated with rub on silver.

    Looks like these are ICE King and Queen. I've seen pictures from Red Miters of Cardinals to those in the store with fake beards. I think I'd place Santa in Fantasy or Children Lore. In the old Soviet lands religion was more or less squashed. Alternate forms of Santa appeared for some joy to children....
