For Aunt Linda

Thanks aunt linda, I was sitting here waiting for nick and now I have something to do/write about. After 3 weeks of being sick of KD and other mostly instant meals I decided I was going to build a pizza, and you do build pizzas, you dont make them. After school nick and I made a trip to our local supermarket to pick up some supplies. Once we aquired all of the dressings like ham, pepperoni, pesto, tomatoes, and cheese we went to the bakery to see if they had any dough or pre made crusts. Turns out they dont know their store as well as I do because after asking a young gentleman and geting a "I guess we dont have those" I turned around and there, sitting on a rack was a "Pizza Starter Kit" we got the crusts and headed home! When we got home we were greeted by the dog lucky, then we dropped the grocery bags on the counter, washed up, and got into our pizza making gear. This is how we made the pizza:

1. Apply a thin layer of pesto to a crust
2. Slice tomatoes SUPER thin and apply like sauce, covering the whole crust
3. Apply toppings of your choice, we had onions, ham, pepperoni, and of course cheese
4. Add some more cheese
5. Then cook for 15 minutes at 400.

Thats all, the pizza turned out as expected, it was delicious. The one thing I would have changed would have been the ammount of cheese, there was a little too much.

The End.

Tom's Screw up

I must say, I've dropped the ball a little bit. But for all of you faithfull blog readers out there I have a funny story for you.

At work we are doing some major renovations. These involve moving the parts department from one end of the building to the other and since I am the lowest man on the totem pole I get to quit my job as a mechanic for a couple of days to move parts shelves and parts around. I was working with another guy at work moving the first shelves around and all went well. Nearing the end of the day on thursday we started to tackle the second row of shelves. We managed to get two sections up before it was time to go. Friday the guy I was working with was going to show up at noon which was perfectly ok because it wasn't really a 2 person job anyway. I continued moving product and shelves up untill about quarter to 10. I was dismantaling the second last shelf in the row we were working in. As I was taking the last corner out of the clip I looked up to see that the shelf that was loaded twice as high as the previous was twisting under the weight. I quickly dropped my hammer and the last shelf to jump up and try to prevent the waterfall of lawnmower blades. This shelf weighed at least 1000 lbs. So needless to say even with my handsom upper body with its seemingly endless supply of power pushed but to no avail. This shelving unit falling on the unit a mear 36" away caused that one to fall against the next one which seconds later collided with the next which fell hitting the wall/floor/stairway/doorway/old shipping and recieving desk. I know pictures were taken of this unfortunate event so I will try to round some of them up.

Just recently my friend and I bought a car. It came from MPI and it had some front end damage. We brought it home and started taking it apart and then sent it off to a frame shop to get pulled straight. Its a Chevrolet Malibu, its at the paint shop now and soon it will be up for sale. We're hoping to make some money on it, here's some pictures.Here are some pictures of a car that we've been working on for about a year now. We just got a parts car and I was able to start it up and take it for a spin. I must say I got some of the weirdest looks driving around without a hood fenders and a bumper.
