Moto Art - Aviation Parts With a Twist
If you’re looking for a piece of aviation history the guys at Moto Art can deliver.
This company searches the aircraft boneyards preserving bits of aviation history and converting them into interesting furniture and other conversation pieces.
I worked in the aviation industry for 20 years. To me, this is the coolest thing you can do with used aircraft parts. FAA certification is definately NOT required!
The table you see above is made from ailerons off of a C-119 Flying Boxcar. Check out their YouTube video below. These guys have some amazing stuff.

Guitar Player’s Dream
Do you want the sound of a 100 Watt Marshall stack with fuzz and phlanger effects so that you can sound like Jimi Hendrix? Do you what the tube sound of a 1960 Vox AC-15 Amp? Do you want to have a floor full of effect pedals in one device?
If you do check out the Pocket Pod by Line 6. It combines guitar amplifer sound emulations with preset effect gear into one device that you can plug a set of headphones into or plug into your guitar amp. It also has Mac (ugg!) or Windows software and a USB connection to change the presets to what ever you want. Get the sound of the Beatles or Jimi Hendrix in one device.
For a guitar player this device is like a litltle piece of Heaven.

FREEDOM - MEMORIAL DAY - 2005
“Freedom is one generation away from extinction.” Ronald Reagan
“The tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of Patriots and Tyrants.” Thomas Jefferson
“No Man is entitled to the blessings of freedom unless he be vigilant in its preservation.” General Douglas MacArthur
On this Memorial Day let’s not forget those that paid the ultimate price for the freedom that we still enjoy.
Let us never forget their sacrifice.

Thermal Conversion Process Converts Waste To Oil And Gas
Imagine if you could take waste products like sewage, tires, plastics, municipal garbage, animal and agricultural waste, and turn it into a light Texas crude oil, natural gas, fertilizer, carbon and sterilized water. Imagine that;
The process supplies it’s own energy and is 85% efficient.
It supplies a renewable source of energy.
It does no harm to the environment and actually solves environmental problems faced by many municipalities and industries .
It is estimated that conversion of agricultural waste could produce four billion barrels of oil a year.
This is a technology that is available right now.
The Thermal Conversion Process (TCP), is a patented process invented by Changing World Technologies. It is based on thermal depolymerization, the same process that the Earth uses to create crude oil.
Changing World Technologies in a joint venture with ConAgra Foods, has formed a new company called, Renewable Environmental Solutions. The processing plant located in Carthage, Missouri, uses TCP to dispose of agricultural waste material. The plant, when running at full capacity will dispose of 200 tons of agricultural waste and produce 500 barrels of oil a day.
Discover Magazine has a good article on the process and the company.
The United States could become energy self sufficient if this technology was applied across the nation. The process takes waste that poses an environmental challenge to dispose of and converts it to energy. To me, this is a win win process all the way around.
I sure hope it doesn’t get ignored.
