I will weigh in on induction cooktops. I use one everyday almost exclusively. I use it with my Lodge skillets. I stopped using my ancient cast iron because it is thinner and the heat would warp the bottoms. I also have specific pots that I use for the cooktop. I don't have a gas range and I hate electric ranges even though I use the oven. I paid about $50 for my first one that finally cracked after several years of constant use several times a day. The next one cost me about $65. I've had it for over a year now. The main problem with the two that I have bought is the steps in temp are very wide. The next one I will buy will be more expensive and have better temp control and a larger cooking circle(not sure if that is what it's called). I am a convert and wouldn't hesitate to spend more money for a better unit now that I have had several years of use. My advice to unbelievers would be to buy an inexpensive unit and try it out to see if fits your needs.

I did hook up my first one to a Kill-A-Watt see see if it used the rated wattage. It was 1500 watts but I never use it that high unless I am searing something. I haven't tried to use it through an inverter yet.
I appreciate your kind words and the induction cooking testimonial.

Gentlemen, gentlemen! I thank you for your generous offers, but I think I can handle one or two pretty girls. At a time.

Cal...the newer Pro version is the bigger surface and temp changes from 5 +/- instead of the original 10 degree change. I never owned the original but I, like you, only use my burner for cooking even though I still have my kitchen propane stove & propane in the tank outside.

I went with HSN because I got the carry-in case and the color white (which is only available thru them). I like the lighter color cause the buttons are easier to read. Plus if you can catch it as a "todays special" the price is great and the fact that by ordering this time of year you can use it till January 31 and only pay the shipping cost, usually around $8 to send back.

>>>AND YOU BOYS.....what can I say, betting 10 to 1 y'all want to help out with the photoshoot because of Yendri.

I guess it has to do with being bottle fed vs the old way.

I agree 1000%. I like the old way best.

Wow! What a thread! I was getting so excited as I was reading this just waiting to see you cut the back half off and see a jeep mounted up there! and your ideas are sweet. Then I read the awful news about the gas leak and as I read that my jaw dropped and was just in shock! Good luck on the recovery and keep on keeping on! can't wait to see the rest of your handy work across the back end of the bus.

crazy to think at one point you thought you were gonna have the bus done in like 6 months

That may have been a bit optimistic. Thanks for the kind words!

I guess I could share a few photos from my December trip to Miami.

Rayma is a friend of Yendri (unfortunately, Yendri couldn't come out to play during this trip) and I've been looking forward to shooting with her for awhile. She has a great Latina body with curves for days. Super friendly, too.



This one's probably not safe for work (it turns out a lot of them are not—she's an eager model):
Rayma at Historic Virginia Key Beach Park

And, of course, no trip to Miami would be complete without a few shots of Dailyn







For those of you in colder parts of the country, I hope the photos help keep you warm. ;)

In medical news, I had surgery on my left elbow on December 21st, a few days after I got back from Miami. I'm still in quite a bit of pain as this elbow was a bit worse to begin with, according to the surgeon. Physical therapy is ongoing (and brutal), but oxycodone helps a bunch. The elbow has a lot of instability since the surgery and that was a known risk, so I have to wear some kind of support for the next few weeks to see if the ligaments and/or tendons will regain the strength they've lost after not really being used for over a year. If not, more surgery.

In art news, I've been accepted into a show in Gainesville in April, so I'm putting together some new prints for the display. This show is supposed to be five times bigger than the Ocala event last October, so hopefully I earn a few extra bucks and meet a lot of people.
