Shifting my Hobby Focus

Posted by Bruce "ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ" Tarleton on February 4, 2015 at 12:55am 9 Comments

It was cold. Well, it’s winter, so that’s not surprising. What was surprising was I was bored. Not a thing on TV. Nothing to do but veg on the couch with my laptop looking at cute puppy pictures on Facebook. I was getting cabin fever, and it was reaching critical mass. Why was I so bored? What did I do before in the winter to keep my sanity?

Well. I built airplanes. Beautiful scale model RC airplanes. A P-40 Warhawk modeled after the valiant fighters of the Philippines. A Robert…

Actually I've only been through 74 ½ of them. This one ain’t over yet, and the last 3-4 years have brought us some pretty nasty snow storms in March.

Now snow I can deal with, I live in the greater Lake George resort area about 100 miles below the Canadian border, and snow not only makes beautiful…

In Good Company... Aspergers and Autism.

Posted by Perrie Halpern on May 12, 2014 at 2:30pm 22 Comments

When my nephew was about two and a half, we began no notice that he had a peculiar habit. He would arrange his cars in size order. When you changed the order of the cars, He would quickly change the cars back order from smallest to largest. He would persist in this activity, and get increasingly upset each time you changed the order of the cars. Soon after, we began to notice that everything in his room had an order, whether it was books, stuffed animals or…
