Been to the two main chicken wing places in Buffalo, I preferred this one.

Went up to Alreco, a surplus aluminum place. Had some impressive pieces, this thing is 3 feet in diameter.

The original Chipotle is near the location of the first debate. Maybe he was in a food coma.

Standard morning balcony snowman.

My first multi-face CNC part. Traditionally a manual lathe part, but I made it on a CNC mill. 1.8" cube.

Deep fried bacon cinnamon roll and fried cactus bites at the Texas State Fair.

Got a 1970s engine blueprint in the mail today. Old enough that the print is actually blue.

I hope I look as good as this owl when I'm 4500 years old.

The Denver Art Museum looks like something out of Half Life 2.

Ironically, I was about twenty feet from Metric. Fantastic show, my first in Denver.

Stunning in Denver today. 80F, 10% humidity. The mountain in the far background is Long's Peak, 50 miles away.
