Remember the days before Cell Phone Addiction, credit cards and K Mart was King of retail? Way past that. Before Credit Cards, Strip Malls, Convenience Stores, Bottled water? Wow. The things that made us soft. Spoiled. Relying on Retail Proprietors to make our lives simple? Ingenuity is a lost art. Self sub stainability if now replaced by simply driving from our Air Condition Homes in our Air Conditioned Cars to a Air Conditioned Retail Store to purchase products to make life easier. OK. Here is the premise of this thread. Post any project you created. Doesn't matter if someone else though of it first. As long as you made it from scratch or junk laying around. Bought the many parts but still put it together. Something that got you away from your cell phone, TV, 450 satellite channels. Show your pride and inspire others to stop buying China crap designed by Americans but built by cheep labor when we are perfectly capable of making something for ourselves if we are inspired. I will post various gadgets and stuff we saved money on by making them ourselves. But it's not just the money, it's Americans still exist in the ambitious creative perspective. I look forward to all of the pride of your creative passion. Or just watch t.v. and let the world turn without you. Ha ha? Farmer Connie is waiting and building..
