Well, the Weather Outside is Frightfull...

But inside it's so delightful, and since there's no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Not like it really cares what we think, from the looks of things! :-) We have got quite a bit of snow the past couple of days, along with a good bit of wind, but at least the temperature hasn't been too bad. Here are a couple of pictures of Dad pushing snow a couple of day ago:

I have been working on a couple of projects recently, none of real great importance. :) Here is a picture of my attempted replication of This machine. Note I said "Attempted", which only means I haven't gotten very far with it yet... So far it is just a large pendulum.

Another Lego project: The Giant Turntable.

I have to confess, I found the idea for this turntable on the Internet... It is basically a large roller bearing, and can hold a VERY LARGE amount of weight. I have even stood on it, and spun around quite easily! Those big wheels are from the Lego Star Wars set Hailfire Droid, #4481.

I enjoyed reading this book we got from the library:

It is a story about a man and his dog, who venture into some very wild territory in search of a downed aircraft, and it's two passengers. Will he find them? Can they get back out after a massive landslide? Is Garridge actually crazy? You will have to read the book to find out...

In my spare time, I have been watching the Film Workshop DVDs that I got recently from Advent Film Group.

These discs are a recording of a live 2 day workshop that was presented at Patrick Henry Collage earlier this year. So far, I have finished the first disc, and am enjoying it thoroughly! If you are interested in film making, I would highly recommend this resource! The set is currently available on the AFG Website for $150.

Well, I had better get going,

Andrew B.

Dear Andrew,
I'm so glad to see that you are continuing your education without me. :) I am VERY eager to see how this program will affect your videography business. Please keep us informed of what you are learning as you go along.
