It was just a matter of time until, youknow, a monkey post. Our simian cousins are fascinating, unless they are stealing your sunglasses or throwing dung at you.
This is made of Legos, and of course, there is a group AND a pool devoted to Lego users on Flickr.MAKE magazine has a Lego category.Legos' robotics stuff looks interesting. Has anybody tinkered with them yet?I have my answer, hmmm,from an Authority with a very interesting site. Lemme get back to you on this, ok? "Live stem", indeed.

Yousee, it is all "live stem" or "dead stem" here at the Shebeen, where,to borrow a phrase from Shep: "In God we trust, all others pay cash".

How pathetic, I'm taking snaps of flowers to just get my Jones on Flickr. I buff my descriptions, hone tags, hunt down comments. Great fun.
It started out as a training exercise for me for the "20 things" campaign. Like Miles said-
Bebop was about change, about evolution. It wasn't about standing still and becoming safe. If anybody wants to keep creating they have to be about change.

Spitfire in the jungle.

God I wish I could paint. Isn't this photo of a couple aces and the dog evocative? I enjoy this genre of photograph, particularly the British ones. RAF and, in this photo, RAAF personnel were a little more eccentric in dress than their American counterparts (especially when they are out in the boonies like these guys: they are in Borneo: quick, find Borneo on a map), and, in this case, cooler aircraft. That's a Mk. IX Spit they are leaning against; meant to be a stopgap Mark, it was a potent aircraft,and I believe the most produced version. And of course, there is the general look of elegant lethality in Spitfires of any mark.
