@Torpedo Factory



Some old but awesome torpedos 

You wouldn't want one of these big salamis hitting you in the head! 

Man oh man, these will do some serious damage.

Imagine what we got now-a-days for fun with our enemies.  ;-)

Kustom Cars


What a cool car!

Engine revving and the belts and pistons turning high up in the air.

And the the rest of the car, the body, couldn't get any lower to the ground (not even John Belushi in The Blues Brothers)

As it was driving, the metal was scraping along the street. 

I wondered how it was that the pieces didn't actually pull/fall off the car. 

The thing has got to be pretty solid despite the rusty looks.

This guy was getting quite a bit of attention along the beach.

Isn't that the point. ;-)

Geometric Shapes Inspire

I like these geometric shapes sort of just hanging out there. 

They're interesting in that they speak to a person, but it's left up to your imagination what they are actually saying. 

Feels a little futuristic and from alien space. 

Words may mean nothing, but shapes can be a universal language. 

Go figure!  ;-)

Copper Pots, Pans, and Bowls

Really liked this set of matching copper pots, pans, and bowls. 

Lighter than cast iron and conducts heat 5x better.

They look good and if coated with a non-stick substance are very functional. 

Not just as a wall hanging but on the stove. ;-)

The Passover Menorah

It's Passover this week, not Chanukah. 

So what's with the menorah?

Well my friend, John Akkus (of Akkus Silver Touch), made this beautiful piece for me. 

I love the fine handiwork of copper, brass, crystals, Jewish symbols (Stars of David) and bold colors of this amazing menorah. 

John sells his art at the annual Suglarloaf Festivals in the Spring. 

I am so glad I found this wonderful menorah--it is beautiful all year long (through Chanukah and Passover). 

Thank you John and nice job!  ;-)

That's Some Pricey Garbage Art


So we stopped in this gallery in Palm Beach.

And there lay this piece of "art".

Well, I'm not sure--is this really art?

The proprietor explained that this is made up of scrap pieces of metal from the garbage dump like from old discarded automobiles. 

The artist welded the garbage together, painted it, and voila there it is--some very pricey art. 

Who pricey you ask.

Take a guess.

No really. 

No, you're too low. 

Try again. 

No, you're still too low.

Not even in the ballpark. 

Okay, I'll tell you, but only because you asked so nicely.

It starts with a 95.  

No, not $9,500.

No, not $95,000 either. 

That's right $950,000!!!

All this "art" can be yours if the price is right. 

Can anyone say "irrational exuberance" again? ;-)
