Monster Cable has got to be kidding

Just read this on Consumerist. This is a Monster Cable web site http://www.monstercable.com/monster_truth/ about the Monster Mini Golf lawsuit. From Monster Cable’s point of view. It’s a pretty pathetic read. They sued another company in another area of business because they used the word Monster in their business name. That’s it, it’s about over aggressive […]

Now why didn’t Helen Thomas try that?

Speed Grade Wing Gundam

My son completed another model. This time the 1/200 Speed Grade Wing Gundam. I have to slow him down or we’ll run out of models for him to work on. This one is his third model this week. It’s great seeing him concentrate on the parts and following directions. He gets very focused on what […]
