and I'll open the diner since I'm usually up 'til the wee hours of the morning. See you in September!

.

Thanks Ed.

I have never opened the diner, and I never intend to. I am more of a Weekend Photo Fun opening kind of person.

Thanks. I appreciate it. I'll make sure to do my part as co host!

Well then. If no one has any objections I will provide ample Spanish information of interest in September's diner!

 

    — and I'll open the diner since I'm usually up 'til the wee hours of the morning.

See you in September!

Since the song is now worming into my brain I'll share it with the rest of the Diner!

I picked this version since there's a railroad scene at 0:35. Enjoy!

I know it is not actually part of Spain, but Gibralter once had an extensive rail network to serve the waterfront.

.

There were lots of tunnels and interesting trackwork to gain the elevation from the waterfront to the top of the rock. I do not know much about it. These rail networks have only been mentioned in passing in histories that I have read.

Absolutely! I just hope you like spicy foods!

Spicy food washed down with nectar from the local grapes, trains, and side visits to the Spanish and Portuguese Air Force museums, what’s not to like about that!!!DinnerBig Smile

one of my favourite questions to all the kids that were always at our house was, where would you get water if there was an earthquake and it stopped coming out of the tap?

.

One of my favourite questions to ask the kids that were always at our house was: "Hey, do you all want to skip school tomorrow and go to Walt Disney World?"

.

Funny... they were never at a complete loss for an answer.

.

The closest Walt Disney World is 183 miles away. No problem for a family sedan with a full tank of gasoline (or a rented minivan if there were too many kids).

.

TOP OF THE PAGE: It only seems fitting for me to treat everyone to a HURRICANE!

.

Enjoy!

Brent ..... You commented about people not being prepared for the storm. They really dont need to do that.

Garry, one of my favourite questions to all the kids that were always at our house was, where would you get water if there was an earthquake and it stopped coming out of the tap? They were completely at a loss. The closest stream is about 3km away and often goes dry in the summer.

When I lived North of Vancouver in the mountains I did not store water as there was a major river, creeks and streams everywhere within a short walk of my house. People living in the city will be in real trouble if the water mains were cut. 

We have a generator that has seen a lot of service over the years in extended power outages, some lasting days. I always have plenty of gas on hand, unlike hurricanes, earthquakes give no advance warning and we are way past due for a big one. They took core samples and in the past two thousand years this area has had a major earthquake every 278 years give or take 12 years, we are 328 years out at this point in time. Bring it on, I'm ready!

. . .It is more a result of the "THE WORLD IS ENDING" reporting on the news. People are told that even though we have prepared, we still have not done enough, because all we hear is that this one is the "THE STORM TO END ALL STORMS!". . .

I read recently about the dilution of the superlative. It seems that every news cast includes terms such as “worst” or “historic.” As a result of over use, these terms no longer have their intended meaning. The risk is that this dilution will result in “The boy who called wolf” syndrome--when there truly is a event of historic magnitude, it will be ignored with catastrophic consequences.

Kevin - Has the news about Dorian slowed now that his (her?) track is taking him a bit further north up the coast?

.

According to the National Weather Service, Cape Coral is no longer in the Cone Of Probability, but the news here is still saying that it will most likely turn back to the West, and we will again be in the target range.

.

Meanwhile, I was streaming the news from Charleston, South Carolina (WCBD), and they are now proudly pounding on the drums of doom. 

.

I wish there was some constraint here. If it more than two days away, it is not time for dreadful alarm.

Good afternoon all.

Flo - A RBF please. Thanks.

Jimmy - Sorry about your cat. You have my condolences.

Ken - Congrats on the new rescue pup. Rescue dogs make the best dogs in my book. (I’ve had a couple, and currently have one.)

Kevin - Has the news about Dorian slowed now that his (her?) track is taking him a bit further north up the coast?

Brent - Glad to hear both kids are doing well.

Garry - Safe trip.

Lion - How do your little people handle having to use such big tools on repairs?

Sept. Diner - Either one sounds like a good (virtual) trip.

W*^k - The way this week has gone, I’m starting to think that I now w*^k with the same people Ken does! 

Weather - Cool-ish, which is still nice. (78 Fairies High for Lion.) No rain today, but tomorrow might be different.

NWPA - Well, it’s the annual Cornfield 500 weekend, so lots of activity around. For those who are unaware, the Cornfield 500 is a big redneck style party weekend, put on by a family nearby, where they have big mud-trucks, live music, and a race (full of amateurs) in a dirt field turned racetrack. (Hence the name.) Sunday they will conclude with a big fireworks show that would rival almost any Independence Day show.

They also hold two world-record Monster-truck jumps at this event. 

This year, the "headliners" if you will, are two big-name Mud Trucks, and their drivers. 

  Mud Trucks of Anderson’s by Richard Woodworth, on Flickr" alt="KingSling" width="640" height="480" />

First up, is King Sling. Some of you may have heard of this truck before.

Also included is Bog Hog, pictured below.

  Mud Trucks of Anderson’s by Richard Woodworth, on Flickr" alt="Bog Hog" width="640" height="480" />

Some may have heard of this truck as well.

For those who haven’t, Bog Hog is driven by Weston Anderson. King Sling is the new truck driven by Dennis Anderson, of Grave Digger Monster Truck fame. (Weston is one of Dennis Anderson's son's.) 

Both of these trucks have about 1550HP, and a 540 cubic inch block. King Sling runs a different type of injector than Bog Hog does, so they do run just slightly different then each other.

For the festivities this weekend, Weston has the pleasure of driving both trucks, as Dennis is healing from surgery. (But Dennis did come to do meet & greet, pictures, and sign autographs.)

Most people needed tickets for today for the meet and greet, but I just happen to know where the trucks were being displayed yesterday prior to being moved to the event, and when I was taking my pics of the displayed trucks, I happened to run into Dennis and Weston, and they were kind enough to not only do a meet & greet, and answer my questions on the trucks, but also did a photo with me in front of Weston's truck. I may post that pic later on.

Trains - Still no progress on the new layout to report, but I did manage to catch the newest loco for a local Short line, the WNY&P on a train yesterday, on what may have been her first trip on "home" rails.

  WNYP 6002 on Home rails by Richard Woodworth, on Flickr" alt="WNYP 6002" width="640" height="480" />

Pretty spiffy looking unit for a short line used to older ALCO and MLW power! This unit, and her sisters to follow, will eventually bump the 6 axle ALCO and MLW power on the line that goes over Keating Summit.

She was a former CSX AC6000, that has been rebuilt to 4400HP, and is now wearing company Black & Yellow. (A few of the other units are red/black instead, but all repainted ones are this same style scheme of Black/yellow. Two of the 4 axle units have stayed in their original colors, one ex Belt RWY unit, still in her Belt paint, and one that is Orange/black. And two are ex M&E in Red.) 

She was in a train with a ALCO C430 #431, a C424m #435, and two other Ex-CSX units not yet repainted, #,’s 6006 & 6007, that may be the two parts extras units. Here, I had grabbed a quick shot with my cell phone, as I was on my way to make a delivery for w*^k. (Otherwise, I would have chased and got better shots!) 

Had I had time, it would have been a very easy chase, as they had to stop and flag a crossing the next block over, as the signals were not functioning at all for some reason. So, in this shot, they were crawling at a brisk walking pace. (Had I been prepared for that, I would have gotten a better shot.)

Wow, I have posted a lot of pictures today!

Guess I better quit before John (TF) calls me a "Post Hog", just to go along with my pic of Bog Hog. Laugh

Hope all are well, and all enjoy the day!

That's kind of what I was referring to about New Orleans.  For years, the news proclaimed every hurricane "the big one".  After years of overhyped warnings, when Katrina hit, there was a reason why many people didn't leave.

Also, the reporting that we are having more hurricanes and more intense hurricanes is just not true.  What we ARE having is more reporting and more overhyped warnings than ever.

I am watching the news on the hurricane and just shake my head. I can't believe people are so ill-prepared for such an event.

.

It is not so much that we are not prepared. 95% of the people in Florida have been through this before, some of us many times.

.

It is more a result of the "THE WORLD IS ENDING" reporting on the news. People are told that even though we have prepared, we still have not done enough, because all we hear is that this one is the "THE STORM TO END ALL STORMS!"

.

Remember when Irma hit Florida two years ago? The Weather Channel said that Florida woud be "Pounded back to the Stone Age". Then, we had very little damage, and you saw the same picture of the flooded trailer park in Naples over and over because that was all that happened.

.

They also liked to show the scene of water flowing down Biscayne Avenue in Miami because it looked good in TV. Not one word was said about how all those buildings can go under 20 feet of water and sustain ZERO damage. And... the designs all worked perfectly. The only damage was to some cars that remained on the lower level of the garages that are designed to flood until the dewatering pumps can turn on.

.

Don't believe everything you see on TV.

.

Yesterday all the retail outlets in Lee County sold out of bottled water, gas, fuel cans, and generators.

.

Overnight all new supplies arrived, and the stores are restocked this morning and ready for business. I'll bet you won't see that success story covered on television. Publix, Wal-Mart, Target, Lowes, and Home Depot are ready to supply everything we need. They have never let us down. The distribution networks these big retailers have are amazing and they never get the credit they deserve. They do more for us after storms than FEMA does.

.

We know what we are doing.

.

People getting flustered into a panic by irresponsible predictions from trusted sources is not an example of anyone not being prepared.

.

Might I humbly suggest, as proposed earlier, Spain?

 

I, for one would not object to the Diner visiting Spain, though I see that we would have to have three sets of trucks for the different gauges.
As tour guide, I just hope you’re prepared to devote the time that goes into conducting a tour for a month.Hmm

Good morning for the last time this month!

Bacon, eggs, and black coffee.  Nothing better than that.

It thundered and rained through the night.  We may be building an ark soon.  The creek has already been flooded for a week.

Finally ready to make a sign for the N Scale motel.  I bought some do-it-yourself decal paper.  I printed an image of the sign and sprayed it with fixative.  It has dried overnight, so I'm ready today to apply the decal to a piece of clear styrene.  Then I will put in a small LED behind it.  I hope to have a sign that has the letters light up looking like neon letters.  I'll post a picture if I'm successful.  I'm not sure where I will be posting from ... I guess either Spain or New Zealand.

My vote for next month´s Diner location also goes to Spain. That is a country we have not yet visited and I´d be willing to supply some interesting foorag about "the trains in Spain, which do not stay in the plain". Just let me know your choice.

Howdy ... 

Jimmy .... Sorry to hear about your cat dying. Condolences. 

Brent ..... You commented about people not being prepared for the storm. They really dont need to do that. That is why I described what it was like being strnaded by the 2009 KY ice storm. We did nothing in advance to be prepared, but we survived 9 days without any new provisions. No power. No land line phone. No cell phone. No county water. .... We already had all we needed. ..... Hope your kids do well in at the univeristy. 

Everybody ... I won't post much at all for a week. We will be traveling in Ohio and Michigan visiting family.

I'll third the suggestion of NZ, I love the place and hope to have another visit before I croak. My sister gets there every year to judge dog shows, as well as Australia, she makes a circuit out of it and often has a stop in Asia as well.

Good evening from perfectville. 

The kids both leave on Sunday for University.Crying I will miss them a lot. We will drop the kid at the airport at 0700hrs for his trip to Ottawa and head right to the ferry to deliver my sweet pea to Victoria where she will study science. She is still interested in being a medical examiner but I am sure that will change if experience with all the other kids I know is any indication. I am glad we have a P/U truck as she is taking a lot of stuff to make it feel like home.

The deadline for the TV offer to the kid came and went. Can't name the show but it was a biggie. They had no firm dates and could not settle a contract so it was back to school for him, which is fine. The money was well worth taking the time off, but at the same time, he could have lost a whole year waiting, not going to happen.

 My daughter found out she has a large residence all to herself at University as a result of her grades and got an additional $6800.00 in grants as well. That puts us in the black as far as cost go for their education.Yes I love my kids what can I say.

I am watching the news on the hurricane and just shake my head. I can't believe people are so ill-prepared for such an event. "THE STORES ARE OUT OF WATER!" Whatever happened to getting 5 gal water jugs and turning on the tap to fill them up. I have 150 litres of water stored at all times, along with an abundance of freeze-dried rations and a means to cook it all. The canned food in the house alone would get us through a disaster. I just don't know, people create their own luck. Tongue Tied

Got my second Royal Hudson back from Rapido that had failed and it blew up again, so it is back in the mail. They send me a shipping label so it is not costing me anything. The first one has run like a top since I got it back. I am a little leary of ordering two of the next offering if I have to go through this again. Oh well, you spend your money and takes your chances, can't take it with me.

Went to White Rock and had fish and chips on the beach yesterday, it was a beautiful two train night. White Rock is the stand-in for the New England states in a lot of movies and TV shows that are filmed here. Take a Google Earth stroll and you will see why. We have gone out a lot this Summer to restaurants as we did not go on vacation this year and it is a good way to have quality family time.

The kid was taking almost a full online course load this summer and couldn't do any movie or TV work as he couldn't commit to so much time. So one day I got him to go into Safeway to pick up a couple of things and he saw a help wanted sign. He went and said he could work a couple of days a week and they hired him on the spot. He was working the 1600hrs to 2400hrs shift and noticed all the money the store was losing from either no prices or the wrong prices entered in the computer system. So late in the evening if it was slow he would enter all the correct pricing into the system. It instantly made a difference to the bottom line and the store manager called him in and asked how he knew how to do it. The kid said they were given laptops starting in grade 4 and were taught computer coding as well starting then, it was easy peasy. He was made shift manager and given a $10.00 an hour raise to boot. He also had to work 5 days a week but managed to attend all the online interactive lectures that he needed to. Some people make their own luck.Laugh

After we drop my daughter off at her new digs we are going to spend three days house hunting on Vancouver Island, who knows what will happen with that. We are also shopping for a new trailer which also means a new truck as ours is 20 years old. Could be an expensive fall season. I want all the bells and whistles on a new truck as it is likely to be my last. Being 62, if I keep this one 20 years I'll be dead.Laugh Most of the vehicles I have owned were new and went to the scrap heap when I was done with them, I am their forever home.Laugh The wife wants to head South and do the dog show circuit in warmer climes. Arizona, California here we come.

Have to go upcountry in the middle of September to attend the funeral of my wife's really cool uncle. He was in the Queen's own guard and was one of those guys that stood motionless in front of Buckingham Palace no matter how many beautiful girls would lift their shirts up in front of him, at least that is what he would say.Laugh He loved my trains.

Big busy week ahead, I hope I survive. Stay safe in the big storm I'll be thinking of you.

May I raise the question where the Diner will be located in the upcoming month and who will volunteer to facilitate the move?

 

 

I think we should all go to New Zealand to visit the Bear for the month, ...... if he's up to having us allIndifferent 

I don't know if there's any railroads there but we all get plenty of that around here on a normal basis and Railroad pictures can always be posted in September's Diner too.

From the pictures the Bear has shown,  Beautiful.  I don't know about you guys but I would like to see more.  Well there's my vote.  Anymore?  Smile, Wink & Grin
