In a more perfect #google world, I would be able to click a #schemer link to set up an "I want to do this" #project . This would then let me allocate assets, like the book Marion mentions in the thread, and a planner similar to Google #keep so I could hash out and reorganize the steps I would take to make my own concrete or hypertufa dragon.

"Every day, consumers use antibacterial soaps and body washes at home, work, school and in other public settings. Especially because so many consumers use them, FDA believes that there should be clearly demonstrated benefits to balance any potential risks."
In 1909, Bland's uncle, William James Smythe, sent her a postcard of the Blériot monoplane from Paris, inspiring her to take up flying. At this point, no one in Ireland had yet made a powered flight – the first would be Harry Ferguson, in December – and to make an aircraft would involve building it herself. Her uncle, an astronomer and member of the Royal Society, had provided the house with a fully fitted workshop, and after some background reading on the Wright brothers, Bland successfully built a flyable model biplane.
From this, she progressed to a full-scale glider, which was built from spruce, bamboo and canvas, and completed early in 1910. The resulting Mayfly was tested by gliding it from Carnmoney Hill, being progressively strengthened and tested with heavier loads, until Bland felt it was strong enough to take an engine. She ordered a light 20 horsepower two-stroke engine from A. V. Roe & Co., and after some delays brought it to Carnmoney in July.
The horizontally opposed two-cylinder engine achieved 20 horsepower at 1000 rpm. Bland was eager to test the engine-powered aircraft before its petrol tank was ready, so she improvised: an empty whisky bottle was used instead, with Bland's deaf aunt's ear trumpet as the engine hose. This construction was not quite a success—the engine's vibrations compromised the security of the plane's nuts, bolts, and struts, and Bland's flight would have to wait.
After miserable weather, the first successful flight was made in late August, a short hop off the ground. Not only did this make Bland the first woman to fly an aircraft in Ireland, but the Mayfly also became the first powered biplane in Ireland. She continued experimenting with further flights, mostly around thirty feet (ten metres) in length, sometimes requiring examination of the ground to identify when the Mayfly had actually lifted off. It was clear, however, that the aircraft was not capable of much more, and would not cope with a larger engine. ...
Bland's flying had been a source of some concern to her father, who saw it as unsafe as well as unseemly for a young woman. Around the end of the year, he persuaded her to give up the Mayfly in exchange for buying her a car. By April 1911 she was running a car dealership in Belfast, but in October gave up the business to marry her cousin Charles Loftus Bland, and emigrate to Canada.
Bland returned to the United Kingdom in 1935, settling in Kent, and in the 1950s retired to Cornwall. She died there, aged 92, in 1971.[ ..."
