Well, I've finally got these things listed on Etsy, just in the nick of time for #ValentinesDay! If Valentine's Day isn't your thing, just think about how soon Mother's Day will be here... :P

Personally I love these as home decorations. I've got a vase of them sitting on my piano, and it looks great. Feel free to buy them! ;)ο»Ώ

Hey all, with Valentine's day coming up, I'm trying to make a little money from doing something that I love; making metal roses. I'm planning on trying to sell them on eBay and some local craft markets. I would like to know how much you would pay for one of these, just to get an idea on how much to sell them for. I was thinking around $20-25; much less and it wouldn't be worth how much labor goes into each one. Regardless, if you don't think you'd pay that much, let me know!

I added that last photo because we all know how much cats help with marketing. 😜

Concerning the extreme socialism I see being advocated all over G+; isn't it sad how history has to repeat itself?

It's a real shame we can't learn from our past with socialism. We did with capitalism, which is why we still have labor unions, antitrust laws, etc. Why can't we learn from the dozens of failed socialist and communist experiments in man's history? Our own nation's history contains perhaps the most beautifully simple example; Jamestown. I love the example of Jamestown because it doesn't have all the different variables of a large country to murk up the waters. They tried socialism, people died. They tried capitalism, they survived and thrived. Black and white.

A side note to people who have trouble differentiating socialism from communism​​​​​​​​​​​; it's not difficult. Communism is a political system, Socialism is an economic system used under the communist political system (though not exclusively so). So yes, contrary to what a socialist will say, socialism in large part is what caused the collapse of the USSR. The USSR collapsed mainly because it's economy stalled out. It's economy was a socialist system. Understand now?

As imperfect and "unfair" as capitalism may be, it is by far the most successful economic system ever devised by mankind. "Success" including improving the living conditions for billions of humans. Socialism, on the other hand, has achieved what? Lots of starvation.

ο»ΏI like to put it this way; A socialist criticizing capitalism can be compared with someone criticizing a billionaire that's donated millions to charity for not donating enough, yet their household income is under $10k and they receive charity.ο»Ώ

I hope any Democrat that sees this considers it before voting for someone such as Bernie Sanders.ο»Ώ

Can any of you mechanically minded people tell what's wrong with this first picture?

Apparently Mexican gasoline flows backwards.

This automobile was Mexican mechanic shop maintained it's whole life, and there's a million things like this that just leave me scratching my head. HOW CAN A FUEL FILTER BE MANUFACTURED BACKWARDS?! πŸ˜•
Don't even get me started on the messed up wiring. Let's just say the dome light override switch is now apparently a headlight override switch. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

The second picture is what drained out of the fuel filter. Mexican gasoline FTW! 😢

People will travel across the country to witness an Arizona sunset. I get to see them every evening.

Ah! We were lucky to get a house with double paned windows so the sound isn't as intense inside. ο»Ώ

I think the fact that it took me an hour to make this says my Photoshop skills are kinda lacking...

Oh well, here it is; my brand in all it's glory! I've used it to mark projects for awhile, but now it's digital. 😎
