Other lagoon

Here’s a second look at the Coco Palms lagoon.  I’m pretty sure I offered a first look at it quite some time ago, although that one was the view to the left as you exited the (hurricane-destroyed) main building going towards the cabanas.  This is totally different.  This is the view to the right as you exit the (hurricane-destroyed) main building going towards the cabanas.  Great Art taken on our cruise to Hawaii during shore leave at the (hurricane-destroyed) Coco Palms Resort on Lahaina and part of my famous Vacation series.

I really wish I had been able to see the Coco Palms when it was actually open.  It looks like it was a really cool, if possibly somewhat dated, place.  I was born too late!  Or at least I traveled to Kauai too late, anyway.

Although it might not be too late after all.  It’s for sale!  I’m looking for partners.  You bring the money and the work, and I’ll provide the ideas.

I’ve take lots more Great Art recently – just need to get it into iPhoto and select the Greatest shots for the blog.  Real Soon Now, guaranteed.  In the meantime, Hawaii pictures aren’t all bad.

Now for the excellent news: we’ve submitted the Brewing Company app!  It went in to the App Store System yesterday and heaven only knows when it’ll come out.  When it does, I’ll let my Loyal Readers know.  In the meantime, why not check out our company website?  I put up a shell on Saturday and have been gradually filling in the blanks.  It think it’s moderately presentable at this point.  Criticism (constructive or otherwise) appreciated.  You can’t polish a gem without knocking off the rough edges.

Over the weekend, we went to a place called Northlandz.  It contains the most amazing model railroad in the world.  I think that’s a pretty accurate statement.  The thing is in a gigantic building with 8 miles of track.  It took us three hours to walk through it.  Just for grins, there’s also a fairly large dollhouse, a bunch of dolls and other toys, and a huge pipe organ, along with several other organ consoles.  Why?  Who cares?  I’m not sure I’d go back again and again as I would will to Longwood, but I’m really glad I went once.  And I’m not a big model railroad fan.

Although I do like trains.

I mentioned the Beagle Bone single-board computer a post or two ago.  I finally got around to ordering on the other day from Adafruit and . . . they were out.  They have plenty of them at [amazon asin=B006X35EN6&text=other vendors], but nobody else seems to have the cool starter kit that Adafruit offers, so I’m waiting.  Impatiently.

I’m reading [amazon asin=1590593898&text=Joel on Software] right now, along with a couple of other software books that maybe I’ll talk about in a future post.  The Joel book is a fascinating book for software developers that really makes you think.  The guy has very good instincts about the industry in general and the art of developing software on either a large or small scale.  I don’t always agree with everything he says, but I suspect I do so at my own peril.  Highly recommended reading.

Time for a couple of other thing before I head for bed.  I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this exciting Morrowlife Employment Agency job opportunity:  angry elves!

See you tomorrow.

    When you built a table and started an HO train set up, I thought you were crazy about model trains…
