I am looking at 5 sweet acres of desert right now, which fits my no upside value. There is a ruined cabin, which adds to the cool factor without increasing value.
Anyway, this is total Luke Skywalker terrain. I am already making plans on where the life-sized wrecked X-wing fighter will go. Also, to certify my sci-fi nerd credentials, I could always build a mock up old school Battlestar Galactica viper.
Will decide on this in May. 4 days ago
How I did it: I started watching it in Afghanistan, because some other soldiers had the DVDs. Needless to say, after the first episode I was hooked.
Anyway, I downloaded season two from a friend. When I got home, I purchased season one for my wife to watch. I watched seasons three and everything from season four on cable.
This is the only program I currently arrange my schedule to watch. All I do now, is watch each Sunday evening. Read how I did it… 4 days ago
How I did it: I can't believe I have been on this site since 2007. It sounds like a long time ago, but it has gone fast.

Was a very stressful day at work, and reporting SPAM actually relaxes me. I also get a lot of extra cheers to play with. I have been cheering old account that have not been cheered/updated for year. Maybe my cheers will register on their email, and bring them back into the fold. 1 week ago
How I did it: We spent five days in London on our first trip to Europe, and spent a day at the Imperial War Museum. It was amazing, because it was just nothing but artifacts and memorabilia. It had the feel of an old attic, and is one of my favorite museums in the world. Read how I did it… 1 week ago

I just completed the first 1100 words of my book, which translates into 2.5 pages. It was actually pretty easy, and went fast. It only took about 90 minutes to write what I wanted, and that was while watching television and revising.
I have to submit the pages for class, which meets on Thursday. I am looking forward to some feedback, which will influence the direction I take. Feedback is very important on any project.
Also, I want to start another memory vignette. I am thinking the book may just be a serious of chronological vignettes. 1 week ago
Are you still in the Army. If sou, take the DLAB and see about going to the Defense Language Institute (DLI). You end up with/close to an AA in whatever language you study.

Have at it, and good hunting.
So far I am more or less making my food and drink resolutions. I sometimes have pastries and energy drinks of days other than Friday, but my consumption has dropped by half. However, I have not eaten a candy bar since 2013.
I really don’t miss candy bars. I now need to discipline myself on those energy drinks and pastries. 2 weeks ago
Paint 2000 points worth of Space Marines and Imperial Guard (40K) sounds like an easy goal, but I am a slow painter. However, over the weekend I did a first coat on a tactical squad. It needs a lot of work, but it is a start.
I also spent tonight building a Space Marine Biker Scout. It was an easy build, but a lot of fun. I hope to have more time this weekend to get some more model work/painting done. 2 weeks ago
UPDATE 2-17-2014: Reported another 175 SPAM accounts over the weekend. New total for 2014 is now at 1450.

Being born in northern Utah, it is pretty hard to escape snow. Pretty much every winter my hometown is buried under snow. It is fun for Xmas, but gets pretty old after January.
I remember it snowing as late as June, but it was more of a hailstorm. Still, northern Utah weather is pretty crazy. 2 weeks ago
Saw this goal on TG’s completed list, and was inspired. Not only is picking up trash good for the environment, but it is interesting to see what type of junk is picked up. 2 weeks ago
