Time to move on from dog poop... (and it's photography-related!)

Underwater Photographer Captures a Sperm Whale 'Poopsplosion'

Underwater Photographer Finds Himself Engulfed by a Sperm Whale 'Poopsplosion'

Costco.


When they opened here the newspaper made fun of the fact they had 5kg jars (plastic) of Nutella. They also have double packs of 1kg, which is much more sensible.

Drive 11 miles West on I-255 from the Jefferson Barracks Bridge you showed us last year. Exit at I-44 / Watson Rd. At Lindbergh Blvd. text me for further homing instructions.
That would truly be a treat!

But sadly I hung up the keys to Monstro last July, and now I am working here: The World's Largest Building

Building wings for these:



Since I am getting on in years this will likely be the last real job I ever hold, barring any layoffs. Since the goal is to get the mortgage paid off on this nice home Mrs. Racer and I designed and built on our little slice of paradise by the river, I will be working just about all the extra hours that I can (of course OT is the order of the day at this place, so that should work out great).



So it may be a good while before any excursions taken during holidays or vacations will be closer to home.

*sigh!*

But if you ever get out our way, send me a PM! Mrs. Racer and I would enjoy having you stop by.

I'd have chat with the boys and girls on the fuselage line if I were you. A convertible 777 may not work out all that well.

Oh, that one. They are actually based near where I live.

ELEVEN POUNDS OF NUTELLA?

Does it come with a hand truck to wheel it around?

Yeah, 11 lbs of Nutella is ridiculous. Now, if it were Vegemite, or Marmite, that would be different.

Ha. I could spread 5kg of Nutella on toast in a morning.

Careful. There's Yanks lurking about here and they may raise a great ballyho about spelling sledge correctly.

I'm far from a yank, but what's the difference?

Sledding is for fun. Sledgeing involves pulling it across the snow on the south pole?...

If you look at the design, the runners distinctly form an inverted 'g'. (And I was a tad concerned about labeling all our friends south of 49 as Yanks but Rebs seems to be out of style these days. And then there's Texans, a label unto itself. )

The difference between that sledge and sled?

Better contrast on the first image, over-all better sharpness, probably taken by a camera without anti-alias filter, e.g. such as those designed by Hocir.

The second image lacks critical sharpness, probably pre-Hocir days!

Ummm.... it's the same pic both times.
