  • Doubledecker in Vicenza, Italy

    I took a trip out this past Sunday to visit the city of Vicenza in northern Italy to walk around a really interesting antiques and flea market and one item in the flea market section had me literally scratching my head...

    Imagine my surprise to find an example of the icon of British city transport, ie. a bright red doubledecker bus, parked in the square adjacent to Vicenza cathedral!

    After the past few months of being indoctrinated by the locals in the merits of Italian wine, spirits and even beer - yep the Italians do actually brew beer, or at least they call it beer! - I was even more surprised to discover that this bus was actually a traveling pub! Now this is what I call taking advantage of public transport

    And yep it did happen and here's the photo to prove it

          Nice one Jim, they still not got it right until you have waited over 30 minutes gagging for a drink and then three turn up.

            We need some of those traveling pubs in Wisconsin. They would be a roaring success at a Packer Football game
            Jim - I'm glad that you found a new way to travel through Italy.

              Jim how does the pub work?
              Once you have had your fill or too much to drink do they dump you off along the way?Must get interesting for the in between rest stops.

              Or is it stationary and moves on after the last patron leaves?

                In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

                Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

                The outside
                of the extension is almost finished apart...

                Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...
