    Sorry about not keeping this thread current but on the up swing, I'm happy to report all is well. In November (07) Yvette went for her last surgery (plastic) and has recently returned to work after a very speedy recovery. Her chemo is long since been completed and I'm happy to say there were...

    An apology and a sad announcement….

    I am sorry to say that after some long and hard thought, I have decided to close until further notice. As most of you know, I have had my hands full since my wife was diagnosed with cancer back in December. What you might not know is that for the past 4 years I was the sole...

    Monday was Yvette's first day of Chemo. We arrived at about 12 and after they checked her vitals (which they do every apppointment) it was off to insert her I.V. line. We met with the oncologist so she could tell us what to expect and to get a briefing on the four different meds she has to take...

    I will re-open on 7th and will be catching up on the orders. As some of you might have noticed, I did ship and process some orders in March. I am still processing those and others as they come in. We will have some slower shipping times than you folks have been used to, but as I say on the...

    Should there be a law preventing the use of any hand held cell phones while operating a motor vehicle?

    Monday and Tuesday (we stayed overnight) we were in Boston again for an Oncology and plastic surgeon visit. Neither were routine. The oncology visit revealed a treatment plan that will last about 15 months starting with chemo and ending with a treatment of drugs that I can seem to remember the...

    Thrustline vs PDRocketry

    Hi James! Great questions and observations. When I first started offering parts packs I made the decision to not offer decals with the kits for two reasons. 1- Copyright issues. 2- Just didn't have the time to do the decals. There's actually a third reason.... Phred makes great decals! At the...

    Thanks Dave Actually, there has been support from both family and friends. My mom has been making meals and since she lives right down the road, I can simply pop out and get them when they are ready. My Aunt was here all this week and was supposed to stay until Saturday, but because of the...

    Monday, we received confirmation that coincides with the initial dissection of Yvette's lymph nodes during her surgery. The pathology report we received Monday showed that all the nodes were in fact clean and that radiation will NOT be needed. This was GREAT news for Yvette as if radiation was...

    New BT-55 builds!

    I think the Goblin fins look a little large. The only reason I say this is I made the same mistake when I printed out the patterns. It will still fly and still looks cool but they are probably larger than the original. Nice job on all!
