The Trickle - Jan. 28

January 28, 2009 - Brian Ferry

(For those who are wondering why I've blogged three times in three days while my recent performance is more along the lines of monthly, I blog when I have time, information and inclination. With the Teflon Blog going up recently, I feel I need to defend my post as lead blogger. I also have had some time and information recently.)

Are you smarter than...

The Warren County Courthouse was in an uproar (well, that may be an exaggeration) Wednesday. The battle lines were drawn and the sides looked pretty even. The page-a-day calendar in the veterans affairs office posed this third-grade art question: True or False? Objects in the foreground of a painting are closer to you than those in the background.

Who wants to chime in on this one? I'll publish the "correct" answer in a future edition of the Trickle.

Pinewood Derby

I was never a scout. I have never built a Pinewood Derby car. But, after seeing the fun and excitement involved in the events - some packs hold their races at the Warren Mall for all to see - I have the urge to build one. Of course I have been pretty serious about my preparations, including talking with an engineer regarding the proper design. The Wikipedia entry on the Pinewood Derby gave me some basics, but keeping an engineer on the email equivalent of speed dial is even better. Now all I have to do is figure out how to convince the Packmasters to let me race. (That and how to construct my ideal vehicle without tools more sophisticated than a hammer and vise grips.)
