FIRE & SMOKE!     Waving USA Flag 2 - Animated

December 2019


Wise men still seek Him.


What To Get - What To Do


Well, the holidays are here again with many folks wondering what to get for the special people in their lives. Every year it’s the same; fight the traffic, crowds, make a hectic sprint to the store before the fat man in the red suit arrives. Yep, another tie, ugly sweater, horrible fruitcake and another glutinous meal with all the crazy relatives from the last 30 years. That’s all well and good but Christmas means a little more than that.

Maybe this year, you can have a Christmas and celebrate the holidays in a way that reflects the true meaning of the season. Maybe you could skip all the commercial garbage and spend some time with a relative in a nursing home, hospital or with a shut in neighbor. You might even take them a meal and make sure they have something to eat and someone to talk with for an hour. 


Instead of another piece of balsa or M motor you put some money on an elderly friend’s electric or gas bill. Lots of people could use some help with heat right now. If you want to do something in the real spirit of the season, find a homeless person and take them a coat. Put a few candy bars in the pockets with a bottle or two of water or go to a homeless shelter and volunteer for an afternoon. 


If you are reading this most likely you have a warm place to stay, food, a coat and probably a friend or two. Millions don’t have anything.

You don’t have to help a million people, just pick one, and remember animal shelters take a big hit this time of year, don’t forget the furry friends who have no one.

Am I trying to spoil your holidays and make you feel bad? Not at all, in fact, going out and doing just one of the few things I’ve listed here might help you to have the best Christmas / holidays you’ve ever had. There’s nothing that makes you feel better than helping someone who can’t return the favor, except doing it anonymously.

This month Fire & Smoke is short and to the point. While it may sound old fashioned or even be unpopular with some people, truth is still truth; Jesus, is the reason for the season. He is the greatest gift of all! 

This year YOU be the gift and just consider helping 1 person. You won't be sorry.



From our house to yours...


Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays!

Above you see a rare photo of Dave Miller, appropriately dressed in black as owner of the clandestine black ops organization known as Sirius Rocketry! What does he do in his spare time? He reads Rocket Babe, what else?

That's a nice looking Cestris Fighter he's holding too! Get yours from


Verna Starr Cestris Fighter!


This is our favorite Sirius kit, the Cestris. The kit is intended to fly on a single engine but it was easily modified to a 3 engine cluster complete with Verna Starr fighter decals, also available from Sirius.
