Assessing the Thunder Jet Damage    ~    And a few meanderings   

Moon pix with a little old nikon p510 and some "Truth Movement" propaganda

Don't remember seeing Pelicans here before, and are those Cormorants with them?.

Thunder Jet, a Skeeter Class Two-seater made by Mead has somehow wound up in Thunder Bay and we are looking over the damage and repairing it. Below that are other Skeeter and Iceboat pix.

24 foot class Skeeter    ~    With new fiberglass nose   

Mike, Barry and Grandpa own this Skeeter from the 40s.

We decided that the entire nose must be reinforced with several layers of Fiberglass Roving, Cloth and Mat. Also a bow log of Oak was cut from a dried raw trunk to give rooting for the attachments.

Although we didn't have the time to paint it properly because Mike was so eager to try it out, it worked great as expected and some ten people including myself have had a hair-raising ride in it with Mike at the helm, so far this winter.

New INTS Book by Namron Soar explaining How The Human Brain Actually Works    
Click to See Index

Grandpa writes under the pseudonym of Namron Soar but it’s all boring Scientific stuff that no one ever reads. You can listen to him droning on about the same old thing again and again but don’t try to argue the point because it’s all Non-Theoretical, meaning there is little to actually discuss. Re-presented in this book is the comparison between Figmentalism/Idealism/Enlightenment, Plus, The Laws of Reality, Entitic Science, Nonreal Entitic Science and the new kid on the block; The Practical Laws of the Sphere.

To Read Brainworks    Click Here    for the Book Index and you can scroll down to find something that might interest you, like the topics mentioned above. Chapters Six and Eleven are even slightly funny. (No Chapters in ’Voice’ yet)

      Previous Book is all in ’Voice’    A Moderate Way
