  • Monday morning lounge

    Good morning all, from 31f and cloudy N.E. Indiana. The coffee urn has signaled READY with Ashpit blend. The special is Ossian ham and eggs any way you want them, and white, rye, or raisin toast. The oatmeal pot is at 100% to start the week. All other beverages including hot chocolate at the end of the line.

    I caught about 30 minutes of football all weekend, 4 games that I thought would end up as they did. I spent most of my time trying to wrap up that puzzle that has me on it like white on rice. Almost done, another new rabbit hole was delivered yesterday from Amazon. A new 3D printer.

    If you have any interest in 3D printing, they have an unbelievable price on the Elegoo Mars Pro 2. for less than $200 w/free shipping. Complete starter kit with tools, etc. It's quite a deal. 2 friends here also snapped one up. I'll dive into that later this morning after the health club.

    Have a Super day!

    Jim

    Just back from the health club, 3 slide offs, 1 ditch job, in the 5 miles from here to there. Light snow over black ice, covered by idiotic drivers.

    Morning all,

    Thanks for the coffee and breakfast Jim, coffee smells great this time of the morning.

    Not sure what the day will bring as I have many projects to choose from.

    Have a great day ya'll.

      Good morning, Jim, Tom and crew. We're going to be in the 50's today, a nice change from the chilly rainy day we had yesterday.

      I have some travel planning to do today. After a mid-day walk, I hope to get some bench time in.

        Unfortunately most of the snow predicted for last night ended up as rain, so we have 2" of soggy stuff on the ground. More snow this afternoon.

        Lots of clicking on the UPSs in the home office, with power fluctuations from falling tree limbs, etc.

        Work continues on the ball signal project.

          Rain, rain, and more rain.....miserable cold rain...... Cup and a 1/2 of coffee and 2 choc chip pancakes, and the day starts to get moving......

          Galley to finish, manuscript to review, and models on the bench (waiting on detail parts again....), so all is at the usual level of sub-normal.


          So it goes...

            Good morning from my world in Wisconsin. Maybe 1” of white ground cover out there. We had 3 weather events fizzle out since Thursday and that’s my total in the yard. 21f degrees now feels like 13 and heading to 31.

            Jim thanks for opening and breakfast. I’m think I might have the eggs raw and sell them out front. Diet Dr Pepper for me and food later. Nice toy you ordered. I have stayed away from 3D printing, I have enough weathering and other projects. That would be a black hole I don’t think I would be able to get out of.

            Terry is home, I have my vacuuming chores for Monday and then I will be at the bench today.

            enjoy the day

            Good morning from S.E. Michigan where it is 30 degrees under cloudy skies. We also have 1" of snow on the ground after yesterday's light snow event. A greater amount is supposed to visit us on Wednesday.

            I finished painting the sky blue on the Masonite for the backdrops yesterday. I hope to paint some sections of fascia board today. (Not sky blue.)

            Some errands this morning and then back in the basement.

            Have a great day!

                I actually owned 2 of these brand new and sent both back. Issues with print ghost lines, thumb drive, and excessive elephant foot. I hope they ironed out the problems.

                  Elephant foot is generally caused by excessive times on the first 5 layers, and subsequent layers. There is a little 'voodoo' involved with this, but I'm sure you jumped through all those learning curve hoops.

                Good morning everyone.

                Jim, thanks for the coffee and breakfast.

                More driving today to Silver City, NM.

                Have a great day everyone.

                  Sounds like you are having a blast on that excursion, what a 'road trip'.

                Good morning. 33F and clouds with a bit of snow in northern WV. Perhaps a walk later when the precip ends.

                Yesterday was a mix of projects at home and at the club. Today: more of the same. I plan to stain the cabinet I built, do a little carpentry, and work on my Challenge project.

                Have a good one.

                Mike

                  Morning all.

                  Trip to Goodwill later for all the stuff I found (and don't need) while searching for the NYC boxcar. Then Lowe's to see if 2" PVC pipe will be rigid enough to make a DIY stand for my flight sim joystick/throttle setup. Then the grocery store and picking up something for dinner. Still organizing the rolling stock. Where are those grain hoppers? Did I throw them out years ago?

                  The whole world seems grey today….of one shade or another…310 with under an inch of new snow. More later in the week.

                  I saved 2 hours by forgetting to watch hoops, losers…had a snowstorm on from Buffalo but figured I could see that here for free and not have to mute out the ads…

                  Red letter day, “Winter at Midpoint” yeah, right…

                  Enjoy the day all…how ever you color it.

                    Now the ice storm season starts for us. Every February we can count on 3-4 days of power outage, Generator is ready to go, One year we went 7 days, without power, the next year the generator was in place. 36 KW Tri-fuel setup. Karl, where did you come up with that 'Midpoint'? We're only 33 days into Winter, still 58 to go.

                  Good morning Guys, and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening the Lounge Jim for the coffee. Nothing better than a cup of coffee first thing in the morning.

                  Cold 38 degrees and rain for todays weather, here in the Ocean State, Rhode Island.

                  Maybe some more progress of my 1960 Chevy Impala build today. I want to get it finished and out of the way.

                  Everyone have a great, safe and healthy day ahead. I'll see you all on the RR-Line Forum.

                    Good morning, all. I went over to the dairy to get milk. NH state roads in "asphalt wet with salt water" condition, town roads a little icy but OK at the speed limit. Then I noticed snow buildup on the bird pens' netting. Half an hour thwacking with a worn out broom cured that, but cable ties used to assemble the turkey pen are dying of UV so it will need work come spring. I'm drying out the broom in case my orchard needs deicing this afternoon.

                    From lunch till the Selectmen's meeting will be HO scale fence building, I think.

                      Our highway MIs-management groups, aka MDOT, is using Beet juice spray on a segment of busy 5+ lane business highway in the NW corner of our county as ice treatment….headed that way shortly to see how it’s doing. Glad my truck is red.
