Bowling Pins Shoot

I wandered north to Mr. and Mrs. Curmudgeon's lair yesterday to get in on some head to head pin shooting. Here is Mr. Curmudgeon on the line:

It is always good to see them and as always much food and laughter was to be had. Hey, I know some of these people =)

It's Good. Very Good!

So although I have an original plate for the 1964.5 Mustang under glass I decided to order one. From here. 

They did not disappoint! 

If that video was too boring, try this one. 

Good looking plate for sure!

The HMS Prince of Wales

New to me but I'm sure not to some here I just read an analysis on the death of this British Warship. State of art for the time, lost with one torpedo hit. 

World powers were painfully figuring out that what was the preferred projection of power on the seas was dated and prone to aircraft attack without air cover. General Billy Mitchel proved this long before this happened. I guess institutional inertia prevented everyone from figuring this out until grievous loss of life and capitol ships.

I read this today. "A Re-Analysis of the Tragic Loss of HMS Prince of Wales."  

A torpedo hit at 1144 hours was fatal. At 1210, she hoisted the "Out of Control" signal. 

If any of this interests you I suggest reading the investigation linked above.

Hi There!

Sorry but I have been busy of late. Some work related, some not. I purchased a new Micro lens for the DSLR and trying to figure that out. Here is my first attempt at that. No post editing except for file size. 

Much to learn!
