Dunedin, Florida: Heavy Equipment: Ring Power CAT 928G Loader Caterpillar I got a glimpse of this mid-sized monster while on my break walk one day, and I just had to snap a shot. Then it got even better, so I got two shots, and now I just can't resist posting them both! What a machine! I think the second shot, which may have been the first one I snapped, is even more fun because the driver seems to be giving me this look... like what the heck??

And hey, if you get a little giggly when you see one of these, and start thinking like I do... forget it. Unless you have a spare $40,000 lying around. Which, if you do, will by you a 12 year old model. If you want a new one, you will need almost 4 times that much. That's right, a new one will set you back around $150,000. But hey, if you got it, why not?

At this point, Caterpillar has been around long enough that there are books about them (hover over the link for a product preview):
The Caterpillar Century
Caterpillar Chronicle: The History of the World's Greatest Earthmovers
The Big Book of Caterpillar: The Complete History of Caterpillar Bulldozers and Tractors, Plus Collectibles, Sales Memorabilia, and Brochures (Machinery Hill)

And work wear in their brand:
Caterpillar Men's Steel Toe Boot
CAT Premium Grey/Black Leather Palm Work Gloves - Large #CAT013201L

And even TOYS in the Caterpillar brand:
CATERPILLAR Lexion Combine Harvester
Caterpillar L Series II Hydraulic Excavator 1:50 Scale
Norscot Cat 777D Off-Highway Truck 1:50

Dunedin, Florida: Beautiful Craftsman Style Bungalow Home Near Downtown

Click for larger picture in a new window
Dunedin, Florida: Craftsman Style Bungalow Home Pictures House Pictures Downtown Real Estate I was enjoying a walking photo safari one day when I found myself in a small neighborhood of beautiful older homes, just south of downtown Dunedin. I think this might be considered a craftsman style bungalow. Although it may have outgrown the bungalow part just a little, what with being two stories and all.

There's not a lot about this house that I don't like. The architecture is beautiful. Well, perhaps I might not have chosen that color, but I can't say it really looks all that bad seeing it on the house now. But I have never been all that good at picking paint colors anyway.

If you're interested, it looks like Amazon.comhas a number of interesting books on The Craftsman Style. Some are 5-star rated. Here are just a few for example (hover over the titles to see a product preview):
Stickley Style: Arts and Crafts Homes in the Craftsman Tradition
Gustav Stickley's Craftsman Homes and Bungalows
Craftsman Style
Craftsman Bungalows: Designs from the Pacific Northwest
