SFB Scrapyard Sack

I ordered Amarillo Design Bureau’s Scrapyard Sack.
What did I get? I don’t know, but I love it.
There  are several intact ships – A Kzinti ship, a Kzinti Tug, 3 Federation CA style ships, an AUX carrier and a B10 Boom. The small Aux carrier, the B10 Boom and the Kzinti Tug are pretty much ready to go, I could clean them up and paint them now. The others will require a smidgen of creativity to get into action.
Additional items are 6 Federation engines, matched in left-right pairs. 4 Federation frigate engines and lower hulls, an extra CA style hull with engines, a Federation hull with no engines or bridge, and a pair of Klingon wing distruptors or engines.
And in the middle is a nearly complete hull of something I can’t identify.
All and all, I am very happy with my scrapyard sack.
UPDATE: David McGuire over on Google+ gave me some hints: 
"Without a closer look, the center one may be a NCL. Or on the outside, maybe the DN minus the body or the Federation version of the B10"

Warning!!!


Warning!!!
Do not live this life straight through from the beginning to end! These days contain many different adventures you can have in this world. Some adventures take place in the present time, some in the past and others in the future. From time to time as you live, you will be asked to make decisions and choices. Some of them are dangerous.
The adventures you take are a result of your choices. You are responsible because you choose. After you make your choice, follow the instructions to see what happens to you next.
Think carefully before you make a move. One mistake can be your last… or it may lead you to fame and fortune.
Truer words have never been spoken. Thank you R. A. Montgomery. I hope you made all the right choices and found the results to your liking.

Reshare – Billiam Brabble and Inked Adventures

Reshare my butt… this is a total post theft.
Billiam Babble on Google +, posted about Inked Adventures, a set of 3d paper dungeon morphs. These sets are available on DriveThru RPG and retail for less than $10.00 a set. In many cases, much less than 10 bucks. You can also check out Inked Adevnture’s link above for free items, support and errata.
What a deal for a creative and easy way to enhance your dungeon crawl.
For the record, my pay day is Friday so sadly I have to wait to order my set.

Brown's Berry Patch

(EDITED May, 2016. I am uncertain as to the status of the Farm, I had heard they closed but they still have an active Facebook Page. It was always a pleasure traveling out the Patch. Perhaps a little investigation is in order.)

It is that time of year again, we are taking our yearly trip to Brown’s Berry Patch. Brown’s is located in Orleans County, just south of Lake Ontario.
Brown’s Berry Patch has seasonal you-Pick fruit, right now, apples are in full swing along with pumpkins. Some softer fruits are available in the shop, but not available as a self picked item. Prices for apples are ridiculously low, be sure to bring a bag to carry your picks home with you. Wagons are available for rental.


Live music and the grill are the center piece of the Patch. The various acts provide family friendly entertainment while you enjoy treats from the snack shop or a meal from the grill. Take some time to take a pictures and shop before venturing out to pick apples.


Kids will enjoy the Barnyard Adventure. Prices are very reasonable, about $5.00 per person. The Barnyard Adventure is subject to weather conditions, so it is best to call ahead or check the local weather for the 14571 zip code.
Address: 14264 Roosevelt Hwy, Waterport, NY 14571

Chromebook and Ubuntu - How do I right click?

If you are using Crouton on a Chromebook, there will come a day where you ask "How do I right click?" With Chrome, you tap with two fingers. In Ubuntu, this does work.
Nothing special is needed. Just hold the ctrl button and click. This also works with any Ubuntu variant and a Mac single button mouse.
Good to know, eh?
