  1. Yeah, it's not a half bad midway, and the fair overall is a really nice one. It surrounds a half-mile horse track. The midway runs the length of the front stretch behind the grandstand and curves around turn 4, outside turn 3 is the animal area/barns, along the outside of the back stretch is mainly for farm equipment dealers with food and other vendors scattered throughout, and outside turns 1 and 2 are the main food area and exhibit pavilions.
  2. I've been inactive here for a few years now, but I decided to make my "triumphant comeback" with a Photo TR. The Great Frederick Fair is the main (though not only) agricultural fair in the immediate area of my city, Frederick, MD. While it isn't even close to the largest or best known fair in the United States, it's arguably one of the better-rated ones. These are just some random scenes from the fair, shot over two consecutive Saturdays (Sept 16th, second day of the fair, and the 23rd, the final day). My son Connor figures prominently in a number of photos.
  3. How many DVDs or Blu-Rays do you purchase each year? I'm still transitioning from DVD to BluRay, so I've been getting lots of combo packs lately. I guess I average about a dozen or two a year. How many digital downloads do you purchase each year? Dozens, but mostly music. I don't have the storage space for too many movie downloads. How do you purchase digital downloads? (iTunes, Stream, etc) Amazon. Do you download directly from iTunes to your device, or iTunes to your computer, and then transfer to your device? I don't really use iTunes, but on the rare occasion I do I download to
  4. ^ Look me up when you swing through this area. We live about an hour from here and DC.
  5. I've been inactive for what seems like forever, so I thought I'd make my return to TPR with a Random Photo TR of the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly VA. This museum is for all the exhibits and artifacts "too big for the main museum on the National Mall," as the Smithsonian describes it. For you movie buffs, this is the filming location of the scenes in "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" in which geriatric Decepticon-turned-Autobot JetFire first awakens. The story continues in the captions! The SR-71 Blackbird spy plane, the first ai
  6. Sweet!!! Finally a TPR trip that doesn't involve an airport for me! Imma try to do both days.
  7. Wow. Looks good in here. You kids do some remodeling or something? New couch, maybe?
  8. Sadly, I haven't been around much (the night shift is a fickle b*tch), but I thought I'd pop in and share a really cool (if short) PTR about some of my work being exhibited in Baltimore. The Veteran Artist Program exists to allow military veterans who also happen to be artists (in all media) to network with each other, art professionals, and buyers, collectors, and dealers, and to give them an inroad to getting their art seen and exhibited. From July 11 to August 28, 2011, they're hosting "Remembering: An Art Exhibit" at SkyLofts Gallery in Baltimore. The wife of my friend and coworker To
  9. Yesterday my family and I spent the afternoon exploring some areas of our city, Frederick Maryland, that we hadn't really seen before (aside from occasionally driving by or through). One of the stops we made was the Frederick Municipal Airport, a small general aviation airport right outside of downtown Frederick. This helicopter came in for a quick refuel and inspection before heading back out. Taxiing right in front of us. A second helo approaches... ...and taxis to its parking spot. A view of the field. Connor had a great time looking at airplanes and h
  10. Finally, a TPR event I can actually get to, and it just HAPPENS to be at my favorite park? HELL YES I'll be there...
  11. One more day until semi-final voting ends! Thanks, everyone, for all the support, and thanks in advance for any last-minute votes for my daughter Ceilidh's memorial NASCAR Sprint Cup car! http://www.sponsafier.com/share/287971
  12. Some of the Wendy's stores in Massachusetts do. I have yet to find on in Maryland that does. Why is this afternoon's Wendy's 1/2 pound double still taunting me?
  13. Thanks for the heads-up on the tweaked link. Not really sure why it did that. My wife said the same thing, but it worked fine for me. In any case, here's a better link. If this one doesn't work, let me know ASAP: http://www.sponsafier.com/share/287971
  14. I'm not normally one to bump a thread for the sake of bumping, but obviously this one's personal. 3 days left to vote!
