  • Holy Batman - Blue Angels overhead

    So there I was under my tent sanding when I heard in the distrance jet engines. Knowing the blue angels are in Baltimore for the Sailabration of the War of 1812 & the Star Spangled Banner, I stepped from under the tent and one Blue Angel flew by upside down with 2 behind him. Right over the house!!! A few minutes later 3 more flew over. Then they were flying in the area for about 1 hour practicing. Around 3ish, I heard the engines again and before I could get the camera all 6 flew over in formation!!! Quite a site indeed! They will be practicing again tomorrow and the show is 1-4 Sat & Sun. The show will be over the Patapsco River at the spot the Star Spangled Banner was written. As the crow flies, I am about 2 miles from that. Don't think much will be getting done here tomorrow. I had the best "seat in the office" today!! Will try to get pics to post.

        Hey, you're lucky to see them. I only live 60 miles from where they train in El Centro, California. I don't get over there much to see them though. They are really quite a team. We had the Air Force Thunderbirds here for our annual Air Show in March. They are really interesting to watch. We have the Air Show here in Yuma, at the Marine Air Station. Hope you can watch them over the weekend, Betty. Enjoy the Show

            That is way cool. When I was stationed in AZ, we had them on the base for a while as the weather was bad where they trained in FL. They didn't make many friends as they practiced early due to the heat and so we all got awakened by them on the flight line. Also, the pilots were all provided a new convertible by local car dealers to drive while they were there.

                "It is so cute" - it is the first what I hear when I show this project. I haven’t done 3D patterns for a long time (about a year), it’s quite difficult and takes a long time. But I don’t regret the time I spent on this new pattern - Christmas deer, I think it turned out great. It is...

                I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

                My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.
