Something Different for Joomla

Late March 2015

I think I've mentioned before, I don't always remember to update the front page of the website. I'm usually too busy getting the current release data, shooting photos of my new models, unpacking my collection in to it's new building (Tuff Shed 30x20), writing, etc.

And then last summer I was unpleasantly surprised by the fact that my parents might be growing old and die. My father fell early summer 2014 and was in a coma for nearly a week. He was still in the hospital when I left for Breyerfest. The doctors didn't expect him to live to see the fall. I'm pleased to say the doctors were wrong. He had his 83rd birthday last week. But my father is now partially paralyzed and in assisted living. I have added running his business to my list of things I'm doing right now.

What this means for the website is -- basically nothing. Okay, I'm behind on my updates because I'm spending additional time with my father (and it's a 90 minute drive each way). I have at least 50 models that haven't been photographed (and are still in boxes) here. I have close to 200 models photographed and coded, but not uploaded. Joomla doesn't just let me upload a quick html page. It requires Media Manager to make the pictures appear on each and every page. That can take a few minutes for each picture depending on my upload speed. But I will get to them.

What this means for the book is -- nothing. I'm updating the book (and the website) at the same time.

For those bought the 2014 book, you noticed that I've gone completely real horse color and given up Alabaster and Charcoal. For everyone else, this is your notice. Alabaster is now Grey White. Charcoal is now Black Silver.

Once again, I'm going over each and every mold, starting with the Traditional Adults, and updating them. I'm going to try to do them as quickly as possible, but Breyer could surprise me with a bunch of new molds and releases...

I may forget to write something for here before Breyerfest, so...

See everyone at Breyerfest!  And come visit me at the CHIN.


Ready for BF 2013

I've been working solidly on the new version of the book. There were a LOT of updates this year.

I have a backlog of stuff to upload, and I'll work on them as much as possible before Breyerfest, but no guarantees. I've also found an appalling amount of stuff marked "for sale". Some of this stuff I actually didn't have in my collection, so I've added a couple of hundred new models. I feel proud of the fact that I now have every variation possible of the bay Jumper and bay FAS. Someday soon I'll get a list of the 1500 or so extra models for sale.

This picture has kept me going lately. Whenever I needed a laugh I stare at this. I just wanted to share. It makes me think of the movie "Up", that cute dog and "Squirrel!"


My life is good, but very, very busy. Trying to get everything done around here, updating my book, editing 3 books for other people, arguing with Duarte's building department to let me landscape with rocks, sand and paving stones (which including the footings for my 14' x 30' hobby building). I'm looking forward to my vacation at Breyerfest.

March 2013

In case you haven't noticed, I am finally updating.  The move is complete.  I still haven't built my hobby room, but it's working it's way through city approval.

There is a little section on the left called Latest News.  Notice I'm working my way through the Traditional Adults updates right now.  Since the move I've bought a few too many models (only 150-200 or so) plus visited two friends and photographed their rare models.  Lots and lots of updates.  I've spent three days so far just on the Trads and I'm only up to "R."

I made a math error.  It's more like the last 400 models added to my collection being uploaded....

Sad but true, I now have every color and variation of FAM ever made, almost...  and about six new PAS/PAM in dapple grey, and a herd of brown pinto indian ponies both with war paint and without.  *sigh*  I'm going to need to weed out duplicates when the collection gets unpacked.

4-4-2013 -- Finished updating the traditional adults.  Going to start working on the traditional foals.
