New Year ..... New Blog !?!

Hello Troopers,

With the new year quickly approaching I thought of things I would like to do to the blog. A New Years resolution for a blog if you will.

First things first, I would like to say thank you to the 12 followers of the blog at this time. As each of you joined the "following", it gave me motivation to continue my blog. I look forward to sharing my blog in the new year.

When I first started this blog I was focusing on Flames of War. Slowly if grew to include my other hobbies and interests, such as Star Wars RPG and scale modeling. I will be adding a tracker for miniature/modeling status as well as a game tracker to give some new material to the blog.

I know that one of my projects is to get my company of Glider troops completed which fell to the wayside due to family and school. I know everyone of you has that scenario to one degree or another.

Another project of mine is to get some games going this year .... both miniature and RPG. And we all know how tough it is to get that completed.

Well ...... Have a happy new year and a safe one at that. I am looking forward to sharing my blog with you all in the new year !

Air Cav

Hello Troopers,

While Virginia was getting buried in snow I was traveling the speed limit towards Upstate NY for a christmas getaway. Extremely cold with about two inches were waiting for the family and I on our arrival.

Having both set of parents in NYS allows for traveling within traveling. One stop being Schenectady while the other is the Adirondacks of NY. My brother in law has recently gotten bit by the RC helicopter hobby and has a fine collection for his fleet. I was able to take a couple for a spin. You look at the helicopter and think ..... how hard can it be ?

I will be happy to inform you that it IS harder than you think. Included are some pictures of his Apache. I have a small avi file too .... with help from my 18 month old daughter towards the end of it.

Any experience or thought in the subject ? Feel free to chime in ....

Be safe and have a Merry Christmas .... Joe

We got a signal !!

Hello Troopers,

I am sooooooooo sorry for the lack of posting. Things have been hectic at headquarters. First punch to the face was the digital camera breaking. I was devastated ... since a fun part of blogging our hobby was posting our work. The next punch was paramedic school. Time was zapped faster than an Ork on the battlefield.

With all that on the sundae we have have the other parts of life. Work, wife, 17 month old daughter and 2 dogs. So as you can see its been tough getting the hobby out on the blog. I also know I am preaching to the choir since we all have these same roadblocks in life.

I would like to welcome the new troops to the blog. Please don't be afraid to stop by and comment. Thanks for stopping by. I must say that the followers have some great material as well. Please stop by and follow their works as well.

We have been receiving much rain here in Virginia. The sun has won today. And with that I must get to some outdoor work that we have not been able to do for the last month and a half.

Be safe and keep stopping by
