The piano tuning business is slowly taking off. I am getting faster and more confident with each tuning.

Howdy, everybody ! 

 

RideOnRoad

The piano tuning business is slowly taking off. I am getting faster and more confident with each tuning. I may be a little biased, but I must say, the pianos are sounding pretty darn good when I leave.

 

Richard .... I'm glad to hear your piano tuning is going well. I have a firend in Illinois who has done that for many years, and he is paid well. ... Also, it is good to hear about your particpating in packing meals for children. 

Ricky .... It is hard to tell about the derailing boxcar. I hope you figure it out. Are trucks pivoting properly? 

Ed ... That is a funny scene !

Hi Rick,

After all that info you have told us, the first thing I would do is change the coupler out on the end of the car where you hooked the 11th car. That was the only thing that changed from running 10 cars that were performing OK. Might be just one faulty coupler. If that improves it thats great but still turn the car around and hook the same 11th car on the end and see if that end cooperates or not.  If not change that coupler as well and if that doesn't fix it I think you have an alignment issue. check the truck bolsters to see if they are both centered or if one doesn't quite match the other.

Good luck with that and let us know.

I will still have to check on coupler swing amount, as Mr. B suggested. (It has a separate train line airhose installed, (by the factory), maybe it's hitting on that?......)

Going along with your idea, check if that coupler pin is dragging below the rail. (A Kadee coupler height gauge is a good tool to use.) It almost sounds like the hose is hitting the rail and causing the derailment. Going on Garry's truck idea as a another option, I use the old adage of tighten the truck down until it won't move and then back it off somewhere between 1/2 to 3/4 of a turn of the screw. (Not so much that it is sloppy loose but so that it still moves.) Some cars it is a lot less, some cars it is more, but that is the idea that I use.

Hobby Front:  Decals for the drop-end gon and the hopper have been ordered. I also put in some Kadee fiber washers to see if I can get the trucks so they aren't quite so wobbly.

I also found yet another coach for the passenger train for the local museum. One more coach and I will be happy with the train.

Steven:

Sorry, but IMHO there is not enough cheese sauce in your Mac and Cheese! Almost, but not quite. Mac and Cheese should be Creeeemmmyyy! You should never be able to see the bottom of the dish until you have licked it clean!!!Smile, Wink & Grin

Sorry for my rant but it was honest. Dianne and I accompanied our son Cole and his girlfriend to dinner at a place called 'Barnstormers" in Barrie, Ontario a couple of weeks ago. These guys receive rave reviews for their burgers and pizza so we figured they couldn't mess up the Mac and Cheese too badly. WRONG! It was really dry! They supposedly used four cheeses, but when you are having trouble swallowing the stuff the flavours cease to matter. Neither of us finished our meals.

This has inspired me to go to their website and add a warning.

Cheers!!

Gidday Chloe, it’s catch up time, so please put the “whistle wetter’s” for the ffolkes, on my tab.
 
It’s been in the news about the NZ firefighters going to help out in Canada Brent. They’ll certainly pull their weigh but as I was explaining to a fellow forum member that we’re not really equipped for snow; neither are we for forest fires. That is not to detract from those on the ground, or in fact to forget that a local helicopter pilot lost his life fighting Port Hills Fires in February, it’s just that the sheer size of the fires in the US, Canada, and Australia are virtually unimaginable. Besides, whereas up until a few years ago two companies, who I do w**k for, got paid to have machines, pilots and required groundcrew on standby to either spot or fight fires, now due to some not so dry years and beancounters tightening the purse strings they’re no longer  paid, though the forestry guys who would be directly involved in combatting a fire, still like us to be “on readiness”.
 
 
A lot of visitors look at a map and miscalculate the amount of time it will take to travel around New Zealand, so 7 weeks with, I gather, six race meetings to attend, is not wasting time JR. I’ve driven from Auckland to Invercargill in two days, with a favourable ferry crossing, and prior to State Highway One being cut by the Kaikoura Earthquake, but then I wasn’t sightseeing on the way! I haven’t been on the Taieri Gorge Train but the videos I’ve seen look good.
I went to High School, then spent the first 18 months of my w**king life in Invercargill, and courtesy of the Southland Motorcycle Club organised Open Days, have raced on Teretonga. You basically signed away your life and rights, back then, and raced. I was pretty quick, but even though I used the excuse that my race bike was my going to work bike, I wasn’t quick enough, but I did have a lot of fun.
 
 
If you were to follow up on Garry’ssuggestion on scratch building a Pietenpol Air Camper Ray, here’s a link to some plans with dimensions.
In HO scale it’s pretty small but to a good chap like yourself, doable. That said with all your activities, I’m not sure when you’d get the time. I’ve got two 1/72 Sopwith Camel kits to build for a side project, just hope the paws aren’t too big.
 
Is that a man eating piano Ed???Dinner
 
Yeah Dave, Mac n Cheese certainly doesn’t need to be a dry argument!! I never liked it until my wife first cooked it, she certainly makes a nice creamy cheese sauce, and while it might not be to everyone’s taste, she makes a nice version with curried smoked fish and sweetcorn.Dinner

Good morning from the Southern command

Visiting the house in Mississippi this weekend. 

hopefully it will be less drama than last months visit.

last month we had a smooth trip down here, loaded the truck with our plywood for the porch ceiling replacement. then the transmission blew on the truck.

 

Had to have a friend come rescue us, got the wood to the house. called my dad ( as it was his truck) They had to come down, had to arrange for my neighbor to feed our animals because the parents normally do that. Ended up selling the truck for scrap to the car repair guy. we did get the porch project finished as we had no were else to go. 

This time we are painting that ceiling and visiting some Blues music venues here. 

Saw one of our favorite local blues guys last night in Clarksdale MS.

Today I will write some more on my screenplay. 

 

 

Garry , no problem, I had been tied of up with work, side work and museum work.

High noon on the West Coast, so a good day to all.

Smoke has cleared by about 80%, however, it is still really smelly stuff. 

I am just waiting on getting more quotes on having two 100 ft. trees cut down that are dead. It has been a bit of a chore getting quotes, people must be on vacation or up working the fires. Good thing I am not in a rush. I will just put the rounds out at the road after they are cut down and it will disappear in no time.Thumbs Up

Brent Seems you have rasied a good son! While I know he is thinking with his head about not going after a movie carrer. I am sure bet he is wondering what if he could makes it big time on film.

Ken, I could not have asked for two more perfect kids. They are both high straight "A" students, kind, generous, and I am sure will make a difference to the world in a positive way.

Mr. movie star could make a very good living in the Movie/TV biz, however it would just be a job and he wants a career. He does not find it very rewarding other than it pays really well. He could easily make $150,000.00 a year doing it, but he has much higher ambitions and there is no doubt in my mind he will achieve them. 

He was invited to go out for lunch with some of the more important people from Deadpool and he accepted this time, so we will see what comes from that although he thinks it is just an invite to hang out and nothing more. He was riding to the set with the assistant Directors often when he was on that shoot and they became pretty good friends in a short time. He is constantly texting with them now. He was telling me how he was getting lots of training from the stunt guys while they had nothing to do and were bored, Lot's of fake fighting, falls and learning how not to get hurt doing stunts. He has also followed the Assistant directors a lot on set and has learned a lot from them as well. It was just a year ago almost to the day that I signed him up to be an extra, who knew he would have had such a journey in the space of a year.

The tree guy is here, so more later.

All the best to all.

Brent

Good late afternoon Diners,

Brunhilda, I'll have an extra large coffee with lots of cream, please.

Without Ulrich it has sure been quiet around here.  I too have been wondering whatever happened to YGW.  I for one, miss his questions about anything and everything posted in the forum.

Yes, that Mac n' cheese looks absolutely delicious.  Before I stopped eating wheat I would slice 3 or 4 beef hot dogs into quarter inch thick discs and griddle them until they we're just starting to turn brown and stir them into the Mac n' cheese.  It's a real cholesterol rush, but boy, were they good!  Nowadays I'll use a corn elbow macaroni.  I know I'll get some debate on this, but I still say the best ever Mac n' cheese is the one in the box with the little powdered cheese packets.  You all know which brand I'm talking about.

Nothing to report MRR wise.

Hello to everyone, and I hope everyone is OK and safe.

Less is more,...more or less!

Ray- Sorry about the understanding. I didn't know what FIL meant.

No problem at all!  I just wanted to be sure folks knew who was who in my ramblings.... Whistling

Didn't get a whole lot done today except for going to the calling hours for an old colleage of mine.  Taught with both he and his wife.  I think I mentioned it a couple days ago, I have lost three people in the last week or so who I taught with.  Makes me feel old, I guess.  I am worried about the wife of the one whose calling hours were this afternoon.  She says she is OK as the whole family is there and she has plenty to do.  She also said, that won't last!  She is in her late 80's and without someone to look after, I can see her failing fast.  She was the (unofficial) "Boss" of our Fine and Practicle Arts Dept. at the Middle School.  I could entertain you for several hours with stories about "Ma".  It was good to see many, many old friends I taught with who were at the Funeral Home the same time I was.....  Heck of a way to get together though!

The Op Session at one of my Division's members house got cancelled for tomorrow (Not enough folks signed up to come...), so tomorrow I am going to get down to the layout rooms and spend a day getting things cleaned up and maybe even get started on the next major project (another bridge).

Hope each of you has a great and peaceful night!  A quote for today:

 Evening Diners!

 Flo, Give Ed The Piano Man, Brent, Inch, Gary, Jan and I a Crown Royal please. Leave a Stine of Beer outside for Ulrich incase he's looking in the window.

 Work Front and the Nut. Long story made short, a some what confussed Lady came wanting to buy the wrong stuff to do something that would not work right. Well I did my best to help her to half Caboose what she was trying to do as right as I could. For my effort I made a extra $60.00 in spiff money but I was honest and told her it was not a great idea!

 Brent How old is your son? Yea walking a way from making $2888.00 a week is hard, well impossible for myself. But he is being smart. If he does not like the work with long boring hours I understand. Plus how long will youth and good looks last?

 Train Front been enjoying trains reviews from this guy.

 I have wonder if he is buying the engines or are they being gave to him free? I know he is married to a Doctor from his post. Seems to be pretty down to earth kind of guy.

Evening All! Flo (or whoever's handy), could I get my usual breaded mushrooms with blue cheese dressing and some raspberry ice tea, please? Thank you so much.

Hobby Front: I've gone and broken one of my previous promises to myself: I wasn't going to buy any more engines. I found a model of BN 1876 that I am bidding on. (That is one of the three engines that BN painted for the bicentennial.) I had attempted to paint one of the other ones and have gotten totally sidetracked. I had started debating getting a SD40-2 anyway and this one, if I get it, kills two birds with one stone.

For those interested in Ulrich's situation, he sent me a PM yesterday with his e-mail included. I had sent him a PM basically telling him to not let the demons win. I know about depression all too well.

He sounds like he needs a real break, but I think his willingness to respond to my PM is a good sign. I sent him an e-mail relating a few details about our club's progress on the new layout, and some stuff about what my wife and I are up to.

Depression affects a lot of people. They need support and patience. I wish him well.

Good morning ... 

Dave .... Many thanks for contacting our very good friend, Ulrich. .... As Bear said, we can sympathize with his predicament. We all wish we could make things all better for him, and I like to think he knows each one of us cares very much for him.....  I certainly wish he would continue the interesting Hamburg posts here. I am sure every one of us will welcome his return without any negative thoughts about him. ... I used to have his email address, but I lost it. 

MLC ... Good to see you. I think I will get to Paducah shortly after the solar eclipse occurs and our out of-town-guests return to their homes. I want to see Bill at Classic Trains, and will make at least one purchase in his store. 

Bear .... Looks like you are having fun with Ed's piano. 

Have a great day, everybody.

I know I'll get some debate on this, but I still say the best ever Mac n' cheese is the one in the box with the little powdered cheese packets. You all know which brand I'm talking about.

When I tore my rotator cuff and went in for surgery over 20 years ago, I was pretty miserable.  My worst memory of the whole ordeal, though, was the Mac & Cheese they served.  I looked at the menu, and told myself "at least they can't mess that up."  I was wrong.  I'd expected the box stuff, but what did they put in this?  No idea, but it was probably some form of hospital health food made with gluten-free this and low-fat that.

Good morning from a much cooler West side of the North American continent just above the 49th. 

Went to bed and it was about 30C (81F), woke up and it was 14C (58F). Had to find a blanket as all we have had on the bed for the last whole bunch of weeks was the sheet. Hasn't rained since May 11th, I guess that's why the joint is on fire from one end to the other.

It is Airshow weekend and that means there will be lots of aircraft flying over all day as they seem to use our area as the in air staging point, and that is just fine with me. Use to go every year when I was younger, but old age has a way of making you skip such things now.

I have had three estimates on getting the trees cut down ranging from $1600.00 to $800.00. I will get a couple of more quotes before I decide.

Ed, love the Buster, busker scene. He looks like Liberace's grumpy twin with that jacket.

Dave, good stuff letting Ulrich know we are waiting for his return, I hope it is soon or our tour of Germany may have to continue by horse and sleigh.

Ken, Good looks don't count too much as he has been unrecognizable between the weird costumes and makeup he has had on. Youth and being in good shape have been part of the reason he has had so much work as he has been able to keep up the pace. In "Legends Of Tomorrow" he was hired as a group of four as special extra's, the other three were let go after the first day as they could not keep up physically. My kid did all their scenes as well as his own. There was a lot of quick rewriting going on for a couple of days to work that out. The kid was made up to look like different people to get around the problem.

Don't let the high pay fool you, Vancouver's cost of living in the housing department is through the roof with the average house at about 2.6 million and rents are really high as well. It all works out in the end.

https://www.realtor.ca/Residential/Single-Family/18411576/4649-W-8TH-AVENUE-Vancouver-British-Columbia-V6R2A6

 

http://vancouversun.com/news/local-news/vancouver-third-most-expensive-housing-market-in-world-survey

The minimum wage here is about $12.00, however, we know a couple of kids working at McDonald's at $17.20 an hour and they are always looking for people. I retired eight years ago and the phone still rings with job offers as no one can afford to live here that wasn't already here. We have a couple of family members in the RCMP that get paid a healthy premium to cover their cost of housing here. That is the only way they can get members to move here. They say once you leave you can not afford to come back. We are leaving in two years anyway, as it is way to crowded for our liking.

Well, I think I will get another cup of coffee and lay on the lounger on the patio as I can hear some old warbirds rumbling by.Thumbs Up

All the best to all.

Afternoon Diners,

Brent- I'm surprised the living situations are to high. It must be living in the big metropolitan cities like New York.

Griffin- How was the NMRA Train Show? 

Everyone- Ulrich wrote to me about YGW situation a month ago.

"As he informed me, he has been permanently banned by Steven Otte, for reasons I cannot comprehend."

He wrote more but I can't post. Since it goes more personal. I'm surprised he didn't write to any of his closest diner colleagues.

 Angelo I like YGW but I saw it coming. While I am happy he has his faith he keep pushing the bounder's of the web site rules. OK, he more than pushed, he steped over the line more than a few times. Same with Ulrich, he knew the rules far better that I do.

 I do miss seeing there post, both where friends.

 Broke out the Big Gun's and running the Mighty CB&Q's F7's. Thanks Ed! Big Smile

Evenin' diners.....

Janie a cup of decaf would do me well at the moment.  Got some odds and ends done down in the train rooms.  Mostly sorting out items that should have been put away months ago and cleaning up so I can get started on my next bridge project soon.

Yep, how many times should someone be warned before.......  I guess I will say, no comment!

Howdy. 

Ken and Ray.    ..  actually I was afraid that was the reason why we have not heard from YGW.  Makes me sad.  I enjoyed communicating with him, and his hobby barn is interesting. .. I also like communicating with Ulrich.. ... 

i don't want to lose good friends.. 

Everybody: ...  Have a nice evening (what's left of it  ).
