Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Mostly sunny with temps in the 40's.
It was warmer in March.

Tom and Jerry , thanks for keeping the place warm.
I was asleep already when Tom posted.
More logs on the fire for the rest of the crew coming in later.

Tom, sorry about your fall and I hope you're back to 100% very soon.

Karl, that's a neat looking tool.

Mike, I was there on '07 and '08 but not '09.

Got the back mowed yesterday and we'll do the front today.
One or two other outdoor things to do too.

Have a great day everyone.

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.

It's a sunny/38 here in South Jersey. Later on a cool 52.
That's 10 degree's below the norm!!

Off to have the oil changed and I think we need front brakes to.
Seems strange to have this done and you can't go anywhere.
I guess that's why gas is $1.96 here now!!

Everyone have a great day!!

Good morning from snow covered and sunny Michigan. The home of the oppressive lock down. Another day in the saga. Thousands rallied at the Capital yesterday, making a lot of noise and probably putting the warden in a foot stompin' mood.

Rick, thanks so much for posting my little toy on the forum. I am going to have to test it out soon. I have quite a bit of track to ballast but the surrounding scenery needs to be done first, slowly working on that.

Yesterday I wrapped up staining the pieces of the Campbell Howe Truss bridge and have tentative permission to use the dining room table as a work surface.

TomO, hope you're ok, we missed your take on things here.

I hope everyone has a good day, be safe and healthy.

Tom.. hope your better!

Have a good day.

Philip

Good morning from So. Wisconsin where the cold continues. Thanks for the comments, I will be fine, not fun to lose a complete night. I can tell you our healthcare workers are a treat, so professional so upbeat and so terribly exhausted. They thought taking care of me and a couple others on the floor was like time off for them. They are rotating through the ICU for 3 days and then to another area for 3 days. They are working 6 day 12 hour shifts. This pandemic has destroyed or disrupted so many families. Some of the stories the nurses were telling were funny or heartbreaking.

The grass needs cutting but the SIL will handle that. Terry was going to use grocery delivery but itís lead time is 14 days, the online pick up is a 5 day lead time. She will continue the pick up option. I will be resting today. Thanks again, be safe. Tom

I hope all is well with everyone. I was to attend an ON30 train show way up north this weekend on the Hudson river. I have been messing around with some 3d figures Les created, placed on scenes I have. Most of the figures are forum members who spend all their time on FB now.
I did put in Verne's station and my Geeze build.

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

A chilly start with some areas having frost and then things warm up into the low 50's.

Hi Larry, thanks for the pic and who's who?

Tom, health care workers are true heroes.

Philip, good luck with the window.

Karl, please let us know how the spreader worked,

Jerry, it's important to stay lubricated.

It's been a week since I called work and still haven't heard back from them.
I'll call them later and see what's going on.

Decided the front lawn could wait another day to be mowed so did some edging instead.
I'll do the mowing today and get a bike ride in too.

Stay healthy everyone and have a great day.

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

I am off to the car repair shop this morning, then grocery shopping.

The Forecast is for 65F today, rain maybe.

Have fun and be safe,
Mike

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.

Weather in South Jersey sunny/48. Later 53. This is more like March weather except this March it was warmer!!

Car needed brakes along with the oil change.
So that's out of the way.

I wonder what excuse I could have today to get out of the house and we all could go somewhere.

This is really getting boring staying home...

Everyone have a great day!!

Good morning , wind chills yesterday never got above 25. Today 49, with no sun but no wind. Heading to the doctorís office for a implant to monitor my glucose levels and they report directly to my phone, Terryís phone and once a day to the doctors office. My glucose pump has not been a real help to me as I was getting low and super quick. Medicare may or may not pay which is why back in January I could not get the device. When I told them I will pay for it everything changed, amazing! Not sure what else I will do today. Be safe.

34 degrees and itís been snowing since before I got up the final time around 9. The weather app on the iPhone shows it all day. Sort of a sloppy look but just warm enough that itís probably not sticking on the roads except bridges could be a b-t-h for sure. We donít have any need to be out for anything today, we do have grocery delivery that is on about a 2-3 hour lead time, itís due here soon, in fact.

I put a new Broadway Limited ďPower-PakĒ (I think itís called) into the Southern Rwy Pacific I recently got, itís a simple plug N play deal, there is a female plug on the electronic board and a male on the pig tail from the capacitor pack, you just stick it to her.....had a good 5-8 second of sound after I hit the kill switch on the dcc when I left the room. My track needs such a cleaning itís crazy to be able to run anything at all.

Everyone have a good day, stay healthy and safe.

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Some rain and cloudy all day with temps in the mid 50's.

Randy, nice to see you here in the lounge.

Karl, is the ďPower-PakĒ just for sound or is it DCC too?

Tom, hope the implant works better for you.

Jerry, hearing about your brakes reminded me about a friend of mine who drank brake fluid.
He just couldn't stop.

Mike, hope nothing serious with the car.

Well, it's back to work today.
Had to make a bunch of phone calls and jump over a bunch of sticks and through some hoops but finally got the OK.

Stay healthy and have a great day.

Rick, I rechecked and the device is a Go-Pa(c)k and it is for the dcc, too. Same as a TSC Keep Alive or the home made ones I've done, just wired up with the ready to use plug that goes right into the BLI sound/dcc board.

Sun is shining here early this morning, it's only 30 and the frost is pretty well covering everything, temp later to go to ~50. Should be nice with sun.

I worked on the Campbell's Howe Truss bridge much of the afternoon yesterday. Watched a John Wayne movie in the evening. Bridge about 1/3 there. Tedious.

No plans for today, yet.

Have a good day back at work, Rick, stay healthy and safe.
