    Lessons in modeling

    I've been building model kits for about 50 years . . . While I'm demonstrably better at it than I was when I was 8, I still pretty much suck at it. Still, you know what? It's been fun, and that's all that matters. cheers Old Blind Dog

    Any advice on Blogs/Blogging?

    I maintain two blogs under my professional pen name. One key to successful blogging, I've found, is to keep a very regular schedule, being consistent to post at the same time every day or week or month. (That is, if you decide to post twice a week on Monday and Thursday or twice a month on every other Sunday, stick to that schedule as best you can. If readers know when to expect a post, they will be much more likely to 'tune in' on a regular basis.) Conversely, the worst thing you can do--the fastest way to lose a potential audience--is to post at irregular intervals, when you feel like it, or get around to it. Your success relies on building up expectation in your audience and a sense of trust as well. cheers Old Blind Dog

    RIP David Bowie

    It's been a very sad day. I am heartbroken at his passing--he was one of the first great artists I heard when I began to explore pop music on my own back in the early 70s--but I am also enriched and enlightened forever by his legacy, and that is a cause for celebration. Also. . . loved his acting. I especially remember his small turn as Nicola Teslas in "The Prestige". Understated yet brilliant! RIP cheers Old Blind Dog

    Deeply saddened to hear this. He was a great guy. I always found him to be knowledgeable and very personable and open in all my dealings with him. RIP cheers Old Blind Dog

    Last Movie(s) You Watched

    Watched a Netflix rental copy of "The Hunt for Red October" again last Friday. Forgotten how exciting, well-acted and beautifully-produced it is! Immediately turned around and ordered a copy from Amazon. cheers Old Blind Dog

    Crossover styles to Auto modeling?

    Building aircraft made me a much better car modeler; more thoughtful about the process, and much more attentive to detail. Old Blind Dog
