A little hot tongue action?!

Pretty much how I feel driving around Denver anymore

Un-restored Area of Grand Central Ceiling - January 2008

Sculpture- Chatham beach (Cape Code MA) - ~40 degrees out and slightly windy - great beach for the summer.

First day back to school after Christmas Vacation

Late night shot of the Encore Building banner on the construction wall.

The new Encore Building in downtown Nashville.

Taken around Halloween. As I'm still setting up the blog for the 2008 picture a day thing, taking pictures hasn't exactly happened yet. But it will very shortly.

Just yesterday, I was obsessed to find a 366 or 2008 house number to post, but my legs gave up after walking uphill on 2nd Avenue. The 100 address block of 2nd Avenue spans several city blocks, so that nipped the quest in a hurry.

Glastonbury High School bench - blue is the school color - photographed on my morning walk around the school. The bench is by the entrance to the gym and was most likely a gift from a graduating senior class.

The Best Lil’ Lego Band from Nashville caught a big break with some new sound equipment and a new stage! I've integrated a laptop surround speaker system into the stage...

I was home sick as a dawg on tuesday, so I'm playing catchup.

 

If I was still a kid, I would get in my pajamas with the Batman bed sheets. Seeing these sheets in a store front window brought back some memories.

How many people walk through Grand Central each day without noticing this. Are you noticing it now? Take a look at that little speck of black that's in the lower center. It's between the trim and the green ceiling.

 

When Grand Central was renovated they left this one area un-restored so that people could see what it looked like BEFORE the restoration.

 

BTW, most of the discoloration was from cigarette smoke and NOT train steam/smoke.

 

I've taken up the challenge of a photo a day for 2008, here's hoping it will be a good year!

I got a twofer today; I saw this Johnny Cash wall. There was some heavy duty construction of a high rise behind me, so I couldn't get any good angles of the full wall.

Someone had arranged this rock formation on the bench we passed while hiking - Machimoodus State Park - Moodus , CT.

I asked my LEGO friends Beetle and Maynard with their girlfriends Sunshine and Faith to check out the new Fingertip Mini Cube Speaker that Thomas at USB Fever sent from overseas...

This morning on the way into work, I had to take a detour to get to my parking space. Out of the corner of eye, I spotted a painted wall that was unusual. Unusual in the sense that it wasn't defaced with spray painted graffiti. So at lunch time, I trudged up to hill 1/2 mile away to see what caught my eye:

I've always wanted to build one of these architectural models... Since youth, I built hundreds of model cars and consider myself a SimCity addict. Wouldn't it be cool to spend a summer building one of these? Of course the heartache would come parting with a labor of love.

 

The model is the new Encore Building in downtown Nashville.

After a spur of the moment visit to Home Depot, we've finally finished of the 1/2 bath with cabinets over the toilet and a mirrored medicine cabinet. The sink, bead board, trim, baseboard and new tile was done last year. Felt great to wander the aisles at Home Depot once again. As a carpenter, I'm always in the mood to build something.
