HO scale pseudo- neon signs continued.

Rigged up yesterday's "Hotel" sign in situ - to get some idea of the final effect. Tried it out with a variety of ambient/background lighting conditions.








A reminder - this is a "flashing" light.

Obviously, the wires will have to be hidden.

Currently listening to:

I'm not a massive fan of J S Bach but occasionally the mood will take me. But that sums up Bach for me - I'd never look forward to hearing his music but can find it pleasing when I accidentally come across it; as I did just now using the random/shuffle facility on my iTunes.

Last night's dinner:

Had dinner at our Chinese friends last night - he's a professional cook - in their new apartment.


Shredded duck


The white shape to the left is a pancake.
When I asked our hosts what they called "pancakes", they said "pancakes".

RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
Currently reading:


A lunch of leftover mushrooms and olives in aubergine sauce plus 5 minute spaghetti and the memoirs of Rabbi Lionel Blue.

I find Blue's writing style a trifle flippant. But, every page contains at least one provocative observation on what it is to be human.

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
Miscellany:

Yesterday my neighbour asked me what those fascinating sounds were coming from our house ie my bongo practise sessions. Was it me playing some sort of percussive instrument?

I said no, it wasn't. I told her that it was my wife who had recently taken up the bongos. She required some convincing but eventually said, "What a talented person she is."

Wearing her new sandals.
