Shuttle Launch

While on vacation in Florida, my son and I went down to the beach to watch the launch of the Shuttle Discovery this morning.  It's an amazing event to both see, hear and feel.  We were on the beach next to Patrick Air Force Base and had a great view of the launch.  The Discovery went off right on time at 6:21am and was visible for about 10 minutes.  The timing was perfect as the sun came up during the flight.  To quote Sean - "that was really cool!"

I do have some war gaming news to report.  My friend, Ernie, has decided to enter the war gaming business and is making some fantastic terrain items.  Ernie's handiwork has been featured prominently in the blog so his craftsmanship is top notch.  This is not his first foray into the business side of the hobby and he and his wife used run a terrain outfit called "Barb's Bunker".  Luckily for his future customers, Barb is also involved in the latest enterprise.

The new venture's name is "Architects of War" and they have a draft blog started where you can see some of the initial products - the defensive works look fantastic.  Take a look:
