Cool Hobby

When I grow up, I want my very own monorail in the back yard, too!

“In October of 2001, Kim Pedersen dedicated the Niles Monorail, thereby introducing a new hobby to the world… rideable garden monorails. What follows are two photo essays on the backyard creation: one is a tour of the system and the other follows the history of its development.”

The track took five years to build, is 299′ 9″ long and even features a switch (scroll down to the bottom of the page).

Back to School

Today was the first day of school after the easter holidays, which were too short. Just when I got used to sleeping in in the mornings and enjoying relaxed days, it’s back to getting up at five thirty… and it’s time for bed now.
