Birth of Nerdus

Hi all,
First up, I just wanted to apologize for my six month hiatus. I've been blogging about LEGO for nine years now, and from time to time I've just gotten a bit run down and distracted from my family of blogs. However, in the meantime, I'm constantly going through Flickr, Brickshelf, and other sites, and probably every day I bookmark a few more things that I keep meaning to post. I've gotten a couple of nice notes asking where I've been, and I guess it's time to come back. Also, during the year I save up LEGO books to review as people are getting ready for Christmas, and want to get those posted. And so, back to blogging. Hopefully I won't have too many interruptions in the near future. I've certainly got a backlog of great creations to feature.

The LEGO blog BrickNerd recently held a contest to build versions of their mascot Nerdly, and Iain Heath took the top honors with his creation Nudely, aka "Botticelli's Birth of Nerdus". The original 1486 painting by Sandro Botticelli is on display in Florence.
