Road Hazard, or Hazardous Road?

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

I saw this sign in a small town on Australia’s southern coast, near the west end of Victoria. It may have been Port Fairy, but it was a few years ago, and I don’t really remember. I just loved the warning, though, so I had to get a photo of it.

Road warning

… and the purpose is?

Social networking for whisky drinkers.

Via Ace. Thrown into the “Food” category, which I should probably change to “Food and Drink.”

“… and them’s good eatin’!”

Good recipes here.

Lovely to look at

I don’t remember the links that got me there, but here is a page of photos of Ziegfield girls.

Some are slightly risque, but, overall? Absolutely beautiful.

Another hobby to occupy me

I’ve wanted to do luthiery for a few years. I’ve built one kit ukulele, which was fun, but didn’t come out as nicely as I’d like. I’m not doing anything currently, but I’d like to get more involved in building instruments. Among other things, I have a broken Kamaka soprano ukulele I was given by a friend that I’d like to repair.

I ran across Kathy Matsushita’s amateur luthiery page some years ago, then lost the link. I found it again recently, and there are some new things on it.

Another option is classes; at least one of the local luthiers has run classes in which you build a guitar from scratch over the course of a few months. Too bad I can’t afford to do that.
