Good memories of this blog

Hi, I am Javier de Sande, creator of Yiharuablog back in 2011.

When I first started to realize that I could create a big enough blog and that it was satisfying for me I knew it was the time to create Yiharuablog. Many years have passed since that day. Two or three years with this free domain. And then at the end of 2013 I decided it was the time to jump to a paid domain and became

But after one year I started university and it was all gone. No more blog posts in 2015. And in 2016, or 2017.

Today I am writting for the shake of it. To remember old stories and to tell a small story about myself. About what it was this blog and what I am now.

As I stated before, I went to university to study. I was accepted in the Faculty of Medicine. And here I am, four years later and more than half of my degree aproved.

So the spark of writting blog posts continue with me, and back in august 2017 I started a new blog. About my life and about medicine, and in my mother language, spanish. I am talking about Medico En Piezas, a blog that I hope to develop for my entire career (altough it first has to become a premium blog without the tag).

I hope you are all doing great with Lego. My fever for it has passed for a time. I suppose I am in my so called “dark ages”. Well, some day I will come back. There are still all of my bricks back in my bedroom.

See you soon. It is always a pleaseure.

Learning Lego Robotics with TMSpecial

LEGO GBC Module: Pneumatic Tower

LegoGBC presents us his latest GBC module, a Pneumatic Tower which was inspirated by Akiyuki, but with a 90 degrees angle.

“It uses a single switch and 2 cylinders. Because the air will always go to the cylinder which job is easier, the movment sequence works perfectly with one switch.
2 PF M motors are used to compress and change the switch’s position, (2 because one PF M was too slow and I don’t have an XL motor)

It was very hard to build the body of the crane as the cylinders try to “escape” from turning the gears.”

In the beggining there was the stone

Totally true… The Lego Stone :).

Homer and Marge Simpson

Homer and Marge Simpson, from a new Lego set for 2014. Found in (god) google! Would you buy Lego “The Simpsons” sets?

Parisian Restaurant Review

Last week we posted the Lego 10243 Parisian Restaurant video review. The set was raffled in that event and the lucky member Nxtorm (Who has appeared at YB several times) got it.

And he has done a fantastic ultra-complete review of the set, which I highly reccomend you to check if this set is in your mind for christmas.

 The review of the set is here! I hope you like it!

Lego Christmas Scene

A new Lego Association has been created in Spain. It is called Asociacion Piezas (Pieces association in English) and they are growing really fast! Their Lego Christmas scene is a good example:

What I most love are the stickers with the adverts and names of the shops.

There are plenty of details in this big layout that includes all the Lego Modular Buildings up to date.

You can check more pictures and the facebook page of the assosiation here!

Merry Christmas!
