Such a cool idea. I wonder when it will happen...?
Feed your 3D printer recylced plastic & it will happily rapidly prototype for you all day. http://autode.sk/1VPOP8A

Martian on Earth
The amazing Martian fighting machine that is in Woking, UK, where H.G. Wells wrote his book "War of the Worlds" and where the story is set.

NOTE  - I will be posting this text on all my photos until I know it is "safe" . As Google have now all but destroyed G+, with the"new Google+,   the MOMENT that they remove the infinitely  scrolling  "notification" page ( this one  https://plus.google.com/notifications/all ) then I am OUTTA here and will stop giving them FREE content.
PLEASE send feedback to Google asking them to keep that page, as it is the ONLY sensible way to see the hundreds of notifications I get. I have managed once before to get it restored.. but...
They also recently KILLED the old photo page where I organised my albums  - so this MAY be the last photo I post to Google

I have successfully culled my wardrobe down to clothing only made in North America. It was a challenge to find some items, but except for a few things (pairs of boots grandfathered in, and an old vintage jacket of indeterminate origin) everything I have satisfies this criteria.

The running gear I have been using is from wherever, though. It works for what it does and doesn't need replacing.

My goal for doing so, aside from getting rid of a bunch of unworn clothing in my closet, was to acclimatize myself to certain working conditions from the 20's to 50's, before the advent of cheap clothing led to so much commercialized waste. This period is part of the line of artwork I am exploring, so understanding some of the work ethic and potential hardships that my Father experienced when he moved to Canada is part of that exploration.
