Happy Easter to the crew, readers, and lurkers from 39f and Sunny N.E.Indiana. The coffee urn is READY with Berkshire blend today. The crew van interior was shoveled out, Febreze'd and it'll be heading over to the Greek's for a special holiday brunch. They'll be expecting a big tip.

Work continued on the shop rearrangement yesterday and I took a break from that and retrieved the SLK from storage, Fired right up and took it to the carwash, looks like a new one.

Then I turned to do some printing last evening, and made a mistake the last time I loaded one of the programs used in the process, and left 'auto update' on. So it 'autoupdated' and saw that the results were less than pleasing. Actually a pile of plastic 'rats nest'. So today, I'll have to back date that code, and go through the realignment process. Just a tad AGGRAVATING! Similar to knocking over that very last bottle of Floquil Engine black.

Have a Super Holiday!

Jim

Good morning Jim and the rest of the crew. It is sunny and 35 degrees here in S.E. Michigan.

A litte reading and some modeling are on the agenda today.

Enjoy!

36 going to 70 in the palm of the mitten. Pass on the Greek’s today. Preparing for sausage, eggs, biscuits here this morning. Mediocre biscuits from the can, but still something besides oat-glop. Funny reminiscent thought of my mother, she was scared to death of opening the biscuit tubes and in fact never would.

Decided to skip the trip to Grand Rapids for the hobby shop, decided if I looked I probably had what I would be taking a chance on finding and in fact actually found a stash of Tichy and Grandt windows for my current project. Took me 5 minutes to find them. Saved $20 in gas and driving in crazy traffic on 28th St.

My last 3D efforts this past week, Jim, were turds on a platter. Don’t have the gumption to work on the thing.

I may have to get a start on some 1:1 today but off to the kitchen first. Good day all.

Happy Easter all. Be well.

Good morning, Jim and crew. We're going to hit the 70's today. Our daughter and her husband are coming over for dinner, so Pat wants to do a walk this morning.

3D printing looks very interesting, from my perspective, however from what I'm reading here, it's a test of your sanity. Jim and Karl, keep us posted on your adventures.

Have a good day.
George

Good morning Crew from a mostly sunny So. Central Wisconsin. It is 46f degrees heading to 74 this nice Easter Sunday. Enjoy the van ride I will be heading to the daughter’s for brunch at 10.

The grandkids appeared yesterday for dinner and some swim time. The daughter and the SIL went to a friend as everyone there last night were fully vaccinated and it was an outdoor gathering in beautiful weather watching a basketball game. The kids played in the pool and as soon as I got them home they were sleeping in their beds.

Had quite the discussion with my wonderful wife last night via FaceTime about what is infrastructure and what isn’t. Let’s just say we disagree.

Trains today will again be between the paper mill and grain complex. I decided to use ME code 83 rail again on the Central Valley tie strips. I have decided though to add PC ties every 18” which turns a cheaper alternative into a little more expensive then ME flex. I did use Altas 83 flex through the paper mill and it really looks different to my eye and maybe coming out.

Enjoy your day

Sunny and seasonal in SE NH. Our first daffodil bloomed Friday, and a couple more joined them yesterday. Lots of buds on the rest of them.

Yesterday I spent "quality time" cleaning the unfinished part of the basement. Still a lot of work to do there, and there's stuff I really should throw out "but I might need that one day."

Lovely morning here in No. Va -- coffee and bacon on a bagel makes the morning a wee bit better.

Office and shop work and if my back is up to it, maybe wrap up installing that crown molding.

Strangely enough I'm "in between" on both publications so a day off on wearing the editors' hats.

Maybe start roughing out the next article or 3, or just get more reading done.

Big tip “model railroaders are cheap curmudgeons and old sobs who spend all their extras from fixed incomes on expensive toys.......so.....”

Don't invest in NTFs,

Good morning, all. Our daffodils are budding too, but no flowers as of fetching the Globe this morning. The little blue flowers around the mailbox have opened, though; they're usually just behind the crocuses.

Looking for decals by Speedwitch Media, I found the decal line had been sold to National Scale Car. I think I'll see how I can do with decals on-hand before ordering just one set. Or I could make a list of "freight cars someday" and go back to see if there's anything else I might use.

Good Afteroon, All!

56, headed for 63 and sunny here in the northern mitten. Happy Spring! I have three daffodils in bloom, the forsythia are looking like they're trying, the crocuses (croci??) have pushed shoots but no flowers, and it's spring. Or not.

Big Tip for Jim: Buy low, sell high.

Worked on the bridge project some yesterday, and I 'm now at a point where I might even be able to claim a point for the Challenge, which would be nice, as I'd actually be on the Board.... Still have a lot to do though....

Make it a Great Day, All, and stay safe!

And Happy Easter!
