Cool and Affordable Laser Cut Miniature Metal Models

I just saw these on a site by Canadian hardware store Lee Valley, of all places! They are by Metal Earth. There are all kinds of themes for their models, and they are all pretty cool! At Lee Valley, they are about $8-$15 Canadian apiece. I see online, like at Amazon, they are sometimes a lot more. However, you’re getting ripped off in such a case, likely, if Lee Valley can sell them at those prices as a middleman. The only reason you might pay a bit more is if some store you know doesn’t carry a particular model, since there are so many! But I’d just get it directly from their site if I were you. There is substantial shipping outside of the US, though, so bulk it up on an order to get the most out of your standard shipping rates.

84 Free Textgram Sky Backgrounds for Android

These sky or celestial backgrounds are designed for use with the Textgram app for Android. They are 612 pixels squared like other Textgram backgrounds offered on this site.

I found these backgrounds on various sites. I cropped and adjusted intensity of light or dark colours in them to make it easy to get high contrast text on them. I hope the focus will still left on the text rather than on the graphics as these are some amazing images. More colours and themed images will be coming. Enjoy!

Leafs Lose in Time to Let Canadians See Chris Hadfield Land

I have new respect for the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight. Instead of trying to win Game 7 of their playoffs against the Boston Bruins in over time, they gave up the winning goal in time so the game could be off the air just time in for Canadians to see their beloved astronaut, Chris Hadfield, land in his return from the International Space Station.

The Leafs, clearly, put the interests of Canadians above theirs, knowing not all Canadians are Leaf fans… but that all Canadians, are Chris Hadfield fans. 🙂

Chris is a Leafs fan, though. He won’t be happy to hear that upon coming back to Earth. However, he should be consoled and touched by the fact the Leafs lost for him.

Thanks, Leafs! Enjoy your summer. You’ll get the karma back in your golf games.
