Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

Google strikes again - I just looked up the guy's name & college and voila, there he was.


Oho! The fine art of Googling. I just put in his name, so I got every Dave Beach on the planet.


I was thinking about the cost problem with Aluminum and Boron and realized...if you have near 100% recycling, the cost doesn't really matter, does it? It becomes a one-time up-front expense, and if it saves you a hundred pounds accelerated and decelerated thousands of times, it will easily pay for itself in the long run.

Since I'm a motorcycle rider I'm guessing that this type of engine might be problematic for us...
