Description: An EA-18G Growler lands at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island for the first time.

I don't know if, when he left, it was high proformance take off the Hornet's love to do.

So is freestyle skiing, figure skating(on ice) and many other sports that border on art. To me, both of PISN's links were mesmerizing. Makes me want to try it even though I know that once my feet are raised off the ground, I need to hang a handicap parking tag on my nose:rolleyes:

Okay... enough wasting time on the internet. I'm going out to my shop and play with my new toy. Got me one of the above, powder blue. Factory built 1936 Mercedes Benz 540K roadster replica. Real wire wheels. All MBZ badging. Dietz lighting. Custom frame with Mustang II running gear. Small block Chevy 350 with a Holly 4 bbl and a Hurst transmission. Only 2400 miles on it. Been in storage a while. The electrical system is funky (some of the lights don't work) and the doors need adjusting. Other than that, it's needing only polishing and sprucing up. A widow made me an offer I couldn't refuse... in the mid four figures. Am I crazy? Should I have stuck with boats?

So you never learn anything here?? How about basic computer skills I had none zip zero nzda , as well as typing skills none zip zero nada , not that either are much better but from nuttin to what it is baby:D

So ya I have learnt somin not much but:confused: :confused:

My point was to be that good to skate like that took hours and hours , now once they learn to take that skill at learning , pracyice etc maybe some day that dispiple will help them earn a way to make a living. Maybe not maybe that should be free to all mankind , but as of today it ain't that way.

But I do see your point , it's right there on top of yer head:rolleyes: :D

I should edit my speelin but no yime and theres no spell checker on this machine , so deal with it:eek:

Actually Paul my point is that I think most of us are here because we appreciate beauty and have an eye for art and a taste for whimsy. Even you, although I'm sure you wouldn't admit it.

So to be such a steadfast member of this whimsical community while dismissing another whimsical artform is, to me anyway, ironic.

A thousand blessings on people who put beauty in the public eye, whether through beautiful wooden boats, giant elephants in London or urban guerilla dancers on inline skates.

A thousand thousand.

Life if full of irony thats fer sure . Ya art is hard to grasp when your a practical sort of cheap skate New Englander displaced in a liberal baston that is life :rolleyes:

It was a cool vid, and I'm sure thinking about it some pracital learning was done the symitry of the cones the running of the camera the angles the camera person took etc . Heck I watched it , it was :cool: , and I guess if they can acheieve that much grace and style they'll do OK in life .

How about a few turning photo's now theres art I can grasp it has a function, take the EMP (experience Music Project ) here in Seattle , Please it's butt ugly , Paul Allens "gift " to Seattle , to some it's art to me it's atangled mess of sheetmetal poorly assembled , To each there own and that goes for art as well. No not you Art Reed :rolleyes: :D

Another go. This is not platform 9 - 3/4; it's next to it, but unlike the red-painted engine in the Harry Potter films, this one belongs in that station. My five year old son can tell you all about these, recognises the chime whistle, and can tell you which of them holds the speed record for a steam locomotive. This one is named after the designer, and is owned by a club.
