Props to you Chuk! Especially for the Old Republic trailer. The internets has been blowing up with that one for a few weeks now. Much better than any of the prequels, so congrats on a job well done. :-) This MMO actually has promise, so hope they don't screw it up.

Dragon Age and Wolfenstein would be on the top of to-buy list this fall, but alack, with babies coming, my gaming days are coming to an end.

I tell you what Chuk, that "Star Wars- Old Republic" is making me want to break my rule about not playing MMORPGS.... Smile,Wink, & Grin [swg]  Seriously, between the game and the trailer, it's really, really, REALLY tempting.

Okay, chukw, I dug into the big container that I keep the extra stash of toothpicks, poker chips, napkins and other stuff for modeling and found the no-name cotton swabs. These swabs have a yellow plastic stick and come in a package of 600 of the danged things--I take out a couple dozen at a time and put them in a tall baby food jar on my workbench and the leftovers remain in the aforementioned big container. The package is a big clear-plastic blister package with blue cardboard and it just says, "COTTON SWABS." I think my ex-roommate got them at a 99-Cents Only store or perhaps a Q-Bargain if you happen to have one of those in the South Bay area.

As a sidebar--

Jim, I saw your previous post and your mention about the cotton swabs.  I wanted to add a caution:  If you're going to use them with any kind of solvents, like acetone, I'd recommend getting the equally cheap generic swabs with the rolled paper shafts.  Acetone might start to soften and dissolve plastic ones, while you're working with them.

Of course, you can be like me, and dip a swab right into the can of acetone, and let it drop by mistake.  So now, my can of acetone has been diluted slightly by cotton and rolled paper, D'OH!

Sorry to have been missing in action for so long, but a man's got to do what a man's got to do.   Things are okay, just really busy.  Thanks for your patience, kameraden!  Let's get on with it, shall we, Fritzi?

You guys couldn't rock any harder- thanks!

We've had a tough week- or dear bulldog Dynamite had to have some pretty serious surgery to have her infection-ravaged ear canals removed.  Scary enough, but a bad drug reaction, breathing complications, runaway temperatures and additional surgery took us to the emergency vet late Friday.  We got her there just in the nick of time, and she stayed there till this morning when we brought her home.  She's doing okay but will need a lot of nursing and attention to get her back to her loving self.  Here's a pic of her with shaved fur, stitches and drains- poor puppy! Send your good vibes our way- she can sure use 'em!



I burned up a lot of nervous energy while waiting by attacking the plastic- I'll let the girls take it from here.

Chuk, sorry to hear about your dog. Pets are so much a part of the family. I lost a cat after 14 years last winter. Would have made it a few more if it wasn't for the cancer. I've also got a German Shepard who's middle aged. Hope your buddy gets better in a hurry!

 Plane looks great. Glad you aren't covering up that nice motor!
