This is what I don’t like about big government.  I assure you that this type of behavior will take place in the US sooner rather than later.

This is odd.  All the original raw data used to calculate historical global temperatures has disappeared?

Why don’t more people know about this?

I love the sound of jet engines

My office is in the landing pattern for Staniford Field/Louisville International Airport. Thus I get to hear the sound of jets coming in to land all day long.  I’ve got to admit, I love that sound.  I always look up whenever I am outside and I hear it, even after all these years.

Since I am too lazy to post much in the way of model related content, I’ll steal from Ohio attorney Jim Bates.  Read his latest review of some divine scale decals for the Spitfire here.

Fountain Pens

Filed under: General — dknights @ 6:14 pm

I am a fountain pen nut.  I love them and use them a lot.  Whereever I go I always look for model shops and fountain pen stores.  One of my favorite of the latter is Bertram’s Inkwell in the Baltimore, MD area.  I could spend hours and a lot of money in that place. 

One of the things I love about fountain pens are the inks.  I use red and blue a lot and finding the right red and blue can be tough.  For red, I like the Visconti burgundy.  However, I recently ran out and am using Diamine Monaco red. It is very similar to the Visconti burgundy.

I’ll try and do a blog entry or two about my pens and inks in the future, but for now I just thought I’d mention it.

Our loss

Filed under: General — dknights @ 6:46 am

America recently lost one of its greatest citizens.  Almost no one knows who this great man is and what he did, and that is a shame.
