It'll be nice to get a phone call from somebody else besides Bamboo Ben.

Note: Buzzy, the number has been changed because Ruzic was calling too much.
Please make sure he dosesn't get ahold of the new number. So please PM GROG
for the new number.

GROG: I enjoyed our talk, and I'm sorry I couldn't hide my disappointment when I found out it was your number, rather than Ruzic's.

Buzzy Out!

Yesterday's sunset:

I have all the details worked out for the new contest, and will be posting the announcement and official rules later this afternoon. Stay tuned!

Meanwhile, back in the tiki world:

stained with some red oak









It has some good contrast between the red and brown shades. I didn't want it too dark, or to be monochromatic. I'm happy with the results. Final step will be to put on some rub on poly.

Like last contest, the prize winners(notice the plural)will get to choose the prizes again. Good luck!

This tiki has features from my other to do list. For these two tikis, the guy who wanted them needed the following things done:

1. Two tikis
2. Kinda Maori styled
3. Tongues on both
4. Tattoos on both
5. At least 5' tall
6. at least 12" diameter
7. Dont carve deep
8. Must support a load
9. needs places for rebar into the base
10. Arms over head to look like they're holding up the roof
11. Big eyes
12. fat guys
13. Full bodied
14. Has to make sense 360 degrees because they will be visible from all angles
15. Make them look the same, but different
16. Put a belly button on them
17. leave as much mass on the bottom of the carvings as possible
18. Give them nice round butts
I think that was it. I had to take all these factors into consideration when I carved these. The arms above the head request really made it challenging, coupled with the fact that they had to look right from all angles. The second one only has one arm up because I did the same but different request on that part. He's kind of got a good curl to him. First tiki I've done with the head off center line and asymetrical.

At this point, he kinda looks like a self portrait. He shall now be known as the "It's Five o'clock Somewhere Tiki!"

Sunny day. Getting close to 70 degrees. Tiki time!

I might be tempted to make this little guy face the wall in my cubicle, so I can admire his assets while I'm working!

I love the color!

Hey, did one of my other personalities place an order for two big tikis?

Today's sunset:





******The Great Sunset Watch Contest II**********

OK! Contest time again. Once again, we will be using the sunsets for this one.

Right now, the sun is heading north each day. In a few days, the sun will set on the Catamaran hotel.
Here is the sun moving towards the Catamaran. The Catamaran is the large tower to the right of the sun


Seven days after the sun first touches the catamaran, the contest will start and I will no longer accept entries.
To win, you must guess how many days it will take the sun to reach this building way up north

the first day the sunset hits that building is the winning day.
It's too far to get it and the Catamaran in the same photo.

So, in summary:
1. Guess the number of days it will take for the sun to go from the catamaran to the big high rise up north on Chalcedony street

and

2. Guess the exact date the sun will hit the building to the north

Two chances to win!

Winners choose the prizes!

I think that we will get about two more weeks to turn in your guesses.
After a date or number is chosen, it is eliminated from the pool of available choices, so there will be no ties. Enter early to make sure you get the best day!

I'll make up the rest of the rules as we go along...


Good luck all!

Buzzy Out!

... you could do all those things I suppose, if you wanted to actually have a chance...

but it's more fun to just pluck a number from nowhere i reckon.

SO here we go... I say, ummm...

32 days after the sun hits that first building, or 16th March!!!

Lock it in!
