  • Sunday 3-8 [s]Merry Christmas!![/s]

    Well, it's DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME a favorite for me, beats a birthday all to heck. Lighter evenings are so great for the spirits.

    Braks fast, eggs, sunny side up, grapefruit halves, oranges, bacon, sausage and for caffienated folks, Tropical rainforest blend coffee. -READY- and of course cinni-buns the size of a dinner plate. And yes, grits.

    Everyone have a great day. Sun and warmer here today. here is a drone vid shot on the W shore of Michigan showing all the high waves and damages happening in that area, this is South Haven https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfo5...ature=youtu.be

    Everyone have a great day, warm, dry and safe.

    Senior Day for my SPARTANSid="green"> today...as they play ohio on the hoops stage this afternoon.

    Good morning-

    Warmer weather for us in North Central WI with mid 50's to near 60 in some spots. The snow is still about 18 inches deep in the yard though. We watched the WI State Boys High School Hockey Tournament last night. Tom O's Verona Tigers managed to tie the game and then got an apparent winning goal late in the 3rd period. The goal was disallowed because the goalie had been partially knocked out of his position. Game into OT. As time was running out Verona got the winning goal with a terrific shot between the pads and pipe giving them the win.

    Congratulations to his team on a great win. Now if the WI Women win this afternoon's game it will be a great weekend for hockey.

    Wife and I are both fighting the cough-crud so no bench time.

    Will have a cup of that coffee and look over the net for a bit.

      Good morning from beautiful, very clean downtown Minneapolis. Still at the hotel which on our road traveling is usually the Holiday Inn Express, but when in Minneapolis we stay at Hotel Ivy which is a nice place but no free breakfast! The games yesterday were great and thanks to MarkB about Veronas HS team. We knew they won via a text that said WE WON from the daughter.we are here today as the Badger Women play for the WCHA conference tourney championship. No virus restrictions in Minneapolis yet, but TV thinks the world for 15,000,000 people will be ending in the next 6 months or so and they are not talking politics. Let’s get politics out of healthcare, sorry health rant is over.

      We are trying to decide if we stay another night as the weather is 42 now later today 63f degrees and travel should be easy. Retirement is nice and I know there is a great hobby shop around the Twin Cities and I want to find it. Also we want another evening of a over priced but excellent dinner meal. We have great ethnic restaurants at home but the Twin Cities top restaurants are as good IMO as the top Chicago/New York places. A foodie heaven here.

      Enjoy your day

        Good morning, Karl. No major stress over DST here, but I would vote for the proposal to shift NH to AST year-round if given the opportunity. Sun through a thin overcast right now, a couple of 60F+ days coming up, so our furnace is off, hopefully for the season. Doing social and household stuff today, back to 28 Winter this evening.

          Good morning all! Karl, thanks for opening up the lounge and breakfast. I've been to Ace hardware, the Greeks, and in the cave this morning. I'm finishing up my DIY static grass applicator. A couple of wires to solder and should be test time. It has a 12 Kilovolt negative ion generator in it. Weehaa! Turn off the pacemakers! Test in about 5 minutes.

          Have a Super day!

            Sun has peeked out/burned through the haze that James mentioned. Brunch was served (asparagus/bacon quiche), the dogs have had their morning walkies, and I'm contemplating today's work in the train room. Yesterday I successfully soldered wires to a small Ngineering 'forge' lighting module for my foundry. I was hoping the post office would deliver the 'skin tone' paint set I got (mostly for a 1/35 military modeling project), but it's coming much later today (via Amazon's own delivery service.) So I'll probably muddle through more work on the HOn30 track, particularly the one switch machine that is most exposed.

              Good morning Karl and the rest of the crew. We are back home in Michigan where it is sunny and 53 degrees. It is either noon or 1 pm, depending on which clock you look at.

              We cut our trip a few days short when first Bonnie, and then I, came down with head colds. Bonnie is feeling much better today, and so am I

              Have a great day!
