I made this cake for my sister's birthday:



It's topped with "cake balls"- cake and icing smashed together to make into any shape, then dipped in candy coating. They're very tasty...

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I destroyed this car. On purpose.



It's for a movie my friend John is making (the guy on the upper-left.) This was taken after it fell five stories. Originally, we were going to push it off the top of the parking structure of the Packard Automotive Plant. When the car arrived we found out that it still worked, which we weren't expecting. So, I set it up to drive off rather than it being pushed.

It had to be done in one take, obviously. The director got the shot he wanted, and I only missed the spot he marked on the ground by a foot. Which, I didn't know I could do physics in my head, so that's good to know.

Edit: Here I am showing my dominance over the car:



Before someone points out that I'm standing in a puddle of gasoline with a cigarette in my mouth and how stupid that is, 1: the cigarette wasn't lit at the time, 2: a burning cigarette isn't hot enough to ignite gasoline under most circumstances, and 3: driving a car off of a fucking building is at least a thousand times more dangerous.

Also, I confirmed what MythBusters found. Crashing a car like this will not make it explode.

Ooh, baby birds! And the meadow is stunning. It's lovely to see a proper meadow, what with intensive farming having destroyed so many of them.

"Lost Potential"... orchid buds that ended up being blasted, never flowering.


"Beach Stones"... laid out on some wood, just fooling around


"Egg Snack"... one of my favorites. A medium boiled egg with tumeric, paprika, fresh chives, and salt. Very tasty and nutritious at the same time.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

awesome pics, Gary!! And there I thought I am the only one here with a weakness for close ups, lol.
You have an excellent eye for interesting motives.


And I love the baby swallows and the meadow, Bocco. The landscape looks very much like the area I live in, only the building style is different and our mountains are less ragged (ours are very old and worn down to soft round shapes).

Here in Bavaria, the blue flowers in the pic are called Wegwarte (waits at the road) as they mostly grow along roads and paths. It's one of my favourite flowers

There's a legend about the plant's name:
a young man was forced into the army and had to go to war. His betrothed waited at the road for him to return, wearing the blue dress he liked best so that he should be able to spot her from afar. He never returned, though, and she kept waiting for years until she was literally rooted to the spot and gradually turned into the blue waits-at-the-road flower.

On a more prosaical note: the roots of this plant were cut, toasted and ground as a coffee-substitute during and after the war. The leaves and buds are edible, too. The plant is the ancestor of our lettuce, belgian endive (aka chicoree) and radiccio.

No, they are baseballs.
