Good Afternoon,

A cool day here, only about 60F right now but supposed to get up to 70F tomorrow which is nice for us this time of year.

Ken, in England, Pip is a short/nickname for Phillip as in Mike for Michael. Not very common here that is for sure. 

I certainly didn't have much for car memories when I was in school. My first car was a '61 Bug when I was in second year at Uni. After I graduated I bought a new Vega, lucky me. My only defence is that it was before all of the problems became known. Once I got into sailing all my spare, and then some, resources went into boats. At the boat club parking lot in Gimli you could tell the sailors by the generally crappy cars. I was 53 when I got my first nice car, a new 2000 Volvo S70. 

Dave, we still have the nest of Ospreys. I checked today and there are still 2 young ones but they look close to fledging. 

Tomorrow is birding and breakfast at the local sanctuary. It means getting up at 5 so will be an early night for me. Hope we see a few warblers. 

I called our phone company this morning as they were supposed to have a service guy here. I was informed that the problem is with their cable somewhere( not on my property) and it could take up to a week to fix. It is working right now but it could go out again at any minute. 

Well time to get something to eat. I'll bet Henry is dining in fine style on the Rocky Mountaineer. I wonder if they stop in Revelstoke, a former CP division point. There is a great RR museum there with a Mikado indoors.

I took my motorcycle in today to get a custom saddle. I scheduled the appointment over two months ago, the guy is that backed up. (Actually, his name is really Guy.) Apparently he does custom saddles for custom bikes from all over the US and Canada. The factory saddle was good for about an hour, then it got uncomfortable. I will get the bike back on Thursday with foam but no cover. I will take it out for a longer ride on just the foam on Saturday, then the saddle guy will make any adjustments, and cover it. I am going with a dark tan instead of black. It should look pretty cool.

 Ed you are right Cussler character was named Dirk Pitt. When we meet our new dog his given name by the rescue was Pop Corn? Then we found out his given name was Pip by the family that turned him in. I was calling Dirk Pitt but as a compromise to my wife I started calling him Dirk Pip.

I've been served Paella several times and I have never been impressed. First of all, I hate having to shell my own shrimp at the table. I like my meals to be prepared in the kitchen, i.e. I don't want to have to finish the task of cleaning my food at the table! Secondly, there is never enough of anything to satisfy my appetite. The usual portions are one or two shrimp each, maybe a piece of fish and a mussel or two and a small serving of rice or couscous with whatever tiny bits of vegies that were included with it.

I am with you on that, Dave! I like my food RTR and not as a kit! I am no big fan of shellfish, either.

I know we are in Spain this month, but if I am allowed a short detour, I´d like to post pictures of a different region of the world. Talking about travelling the world made me search for some old pictures I took during my last overseas business trip, which was to China in 2008. The trip took me to Shanghai and neighboring Wuxi, a small (!) Chinese city of 4 million people, and on to Beijing and further north to Baoding. Part of the travel within China was done by train, and part by air plane (Wuxi to Beijing). With that trip done, I can state that my travels have taken me around the world!

At first, a few pictures of Chinese trains, which are stunningly similar to Japanese trains.

Some of the look like good old U-boats!

Eating in China is somewhat different to the food served in our Chinese restaurants. I gave up trying to identify what I was eating. Some of the bits were, to say the least, quite strange for my European palate.

Those were the edible bits and pieces. A stroll over the old food market in Wuxi showed me creepy crawley things that would never enter my plate, let alone my mouth! Without the excellent English breakfast in the hotel, I would not have survived the trip! The only decent meal I had was the night before we left for home - in an Italian restaurant in Beijing!

And now a few random impressions.

The pictures show the immense amount of air pollution in China. Even on a "bright" and sunny day, the sun is just a faint yellow ball up in the sky. I was glad when we finally left, as I always had respiratory problems during my visit.

Bye bye, China!

I am the one on the left...

 

Happy times!

It most certainly is Paella.  And Dave is right.  It's not particularly good IMO.  

Tortilla

This, however, is Spanish Tortilla, and it is delish!  Basically just potatoes and eggs.

Great pictures!  I just read an article about pollution in China.  Many of the electronic items now made in China could not be made in the U.S. or Canada under our environmental rules without major money to keep it clean.

Like many people, I confuse Mexican food with Spanish food, although I know they are not the same.

After living in New Orleans, and traveling around southern Louisiana, I got used to eating just about anything.  There were some cafes in outlying areas where I wasn't sure what was in the dish.  It tasted great, so it was better that I didn't know.

Enjoy hump day.

I was in China a few years prior, in 2003, accompanying my daughter on a marching band trip. They were invited to march in the Peach Blossom Festival parade in Nanjing. We were told it was watched by millions and what we learned is the millions watched it on television. The only people to see the parade in person were the community leaders and invited guests. The kids marched past a set of bleachers that could not have seated more than a couple hundred people. There were cameras at both ends of the bleachers broadcasting to the general population. All in all, the kids marched a couple hundred yards. However, they did get the opportunity to spend 10 days in China, visiting Nanjing, Shanghai, and Beijing. They were invited to perform on the Great Wall. It was eerie to have them play the Star Spangled Banner on the Great Wall of China on the very day that the US declared war on Iraq without the consent of the Chinese government. (We did not learn of the declaration until after the performance.)

Richard. You will love a custom salad

Dave well after college we went to a seafood buffet with friends.  One of them complained the shrimp were crunchy.  He had never encountered a unpeeled shrimp before

China: my friend who passed earlier this year said he was in a restaurant where you went outside and chose your meal that was in cages.  It was a business meeting and adult entertainment was provided after dinner.   If you have a vivid imagination you would not be wrong  

muskrat Is supposed to taste better than chicken. I won’t test that theory

I am not nearly as good on an iPhone as on a computer so no pics until I get home.  We get on the for the first time just after sunrise.  So far the bus trip part has been spectacular, as had the price of food and drink

 Work Front. It was a pain in the caboose day and it was slooow? Only two customers all day but the last one was a good one thank goodess. They where note takers and want to prices a power base (makes head and feet go up and down) and a hard mattress. Got them to buy a close out memory foam mattress and close out power base. Normally note takers shop and shop and shop. I was the first store they stopped at and lucked out. $2145.00 sale and $135.00 in spiff money.

 Wife is reminding me of every reason I did not want to get another dog!Bang Head While my job is easy I am gone from home 11.5 hours so it is sort of a long day. I get home around 9:00 PM and soon as I get in the house I have to take Dirk Pip out because it is now dark! Sue, it was not dark at 7:30 PM, why did you not take him out then I asked? Answer "My show was on"! Bang Head When it is dark at 6:00 PM I understand some what. There are coyotes in the neighborhood.

 I am starting to love Dirk Pip.  He is a sweet pup, I like him better than my wife tonight!

Café con leche y churros, por favor!

Summer is waving good bye to us! The night was quite cold, in fact so cold, we had to turn the heating on in the morning. After half a day of rain, it has cleared up, but it is still quite fresh.

Let´s take a train in Spain today!

I'm not sure where you live, but I have a friend who is a pastor in Woodbury, MN.,  and there is a bar-restaurant there called Cowboys.  Is that where you went?  My friend left Nebraska 15 years ago, and I haven't seen him since.  Someday, maybe.

 

Henry and Garry, enjoy your trips!

Ulrich, I watched a program about that train.  Spain really has something to be proud of.  

 

It's a beautiful morning here, but I'm not really getting to enjoy it.  I have been under the weather lately, and have spent the past days sitting in a recliner watching TV.  Hope to feel better later today so I can get up and do something.

When I was working 7 days a week and evening meetings, I dreamed of the day I could sit in a recliner and watch TV all day.  Now that I am at this point, I'd rather be up and doing something.

Have a great day, everyone!

Good day from perfectville. It is high noon on the sunny West Coast. 

Just got back from Vancouver Island, we had done a drive-by at the airport at 0700hrs and dumped the kid bound for Ottawa and went to the ferry for Victoria to take my daughter to Uvic. The kid had the whole row of seats to himself on the plane and when he got to Ottawa to his new house his roommates had his new bed all set up and made as well as the 50" TV he had delivered set up in his room. They are great kids, they had also made him dinner.

Daughter loves her room as it has an awesome view. She is taking science, probably heading towards the medical field.

Spent four days looking at some pretty nice waterfront lots and homes on Vancouver Island and have three possibilities at this time. Came home to major in-law issues and other things that put a damper on the whole works. My wife's family is quite dysfunctional, my wife is the only one that can deal with these things so it is left up to her(us) to deal with them.

Stayed with my cousin while we were there in their stunning waterfront home and I did not want to leave. A pre-breakfast paddle beats rush hour sirens any day.

I'll take this over going to Disneyland any time. Too quiet and peacefull for words.

Well lots to do, we are purging again so we can move fast if need be. I just wonder about the layout and how long that will take when the time comes.Hmm We have offers on the house that are good (private sale) so we will see.

This is our 9 month old pup that has put the TV and remote together and brings it so we will turn on Animal Planet. I keep telling her she will get fat watching too much Animal Planet.

The wife has 4 or 5 Vet friends coming over for lunch so I had better get going.

 Afternoon Diners!

 Flo, the gang and I will have a Beer and dog treats please.

 York I am with you and it drives me nuts! She won't take out the trash because she has problems getting up the step. Yet she can get to her car to do what she wants?

 Big day for Dirk Pip. He had a couple of first.

 1 Went with me in the car with out Sue coming along. We went to the bank and library. Again he was a big hit.

 2 Left in the house a lone. Sue had went with my daughter and I had to make a run too a couple none pet friendly stores. Nothing tore up, knocked down or broken. Yes He was just happy we where home.

 Sorry all I have been talking about is the new pup. But so far he is the best thing that has happened to my family this year.

 Sparkie is not forgotten but Dirk has help to fill the void in our heart's.

Ken, I love hearing about Dirk and all the other animal companions out there. Please post more photos of him from time to time.

Our pups are 8 weeks on Sunday and will soon be heading off around the world to their new homes. A couple are going to pet homes and four will be in show homes.

Image may contain: dog

I don't pay much attention to the show thing even though I have been emersed in it through my sister, Mom, and wife for over 50 years. I find 75% of dog show people over the top arrogant and annoying. The other 25% are wonderfull people that more than make up for the 75% that give the hobby a bad name. 

My wife usually only has a litter of puppies every two or three years, however, we may have another batch on the way by Christmas. She has frozen semen from many of her prize dogs that are long gone and will be using some of it on a "lady dog" ( how's that language sensor with limited understanding) they will be going to competitive field homes where they compete in bird retrieving which they are supposed to be doing in my book, not running around in circles trying to look pretty.Laugh 

What time does the running of the bulls start? I'll buy anyone dinner and drinks that partakes in the event.

My cousin that I just visited got back 10 days ago from Spain, Portugal, and Morrocco. In Morroco, she went on a camel caravan across the desert for several days staying each night in luxurious tents complete with showers and toilets and the food was tremendous. She went right from the hot desert of Morroco on camels to paddling with the Orca in the Pacific in two days.Pirate

I did a dive on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and then was in the Pacific just North of Vancouver a couple of days later on a cold November afternoon, that was a bit of a shock.

I'll get the next round.BeerDrinks Choose your poison.Pirate

You have absolutely no reason to apologise! The pup sounds like a miracle dog. No one could ask for a more obedient and well adjusted dog than Dirk Pip! I am enjoying your stories about him enormously. Makes me want to have a dog again.....almost.Smile, Wink & GrinLaughLaugh

Cheers!!

It's not the age honey, it's the mileage.

Good morning!  66° and clear this morning.  Nice!

No breakfast this morning, I had mine already.  Each Friday morning, a small group of men from my church meet at 6:00 a.m. for breakfast at the local restaurant.  I look forward to it each week, although over the years I've had to eat smaller breakfasts than when I was younger.

Nothing much going on here.  I'm cutting grass today, then applying some fall fertilizer.  My wife won't let me kill the grass, even though she would never consider cutting it.  

Just about finished with one layout project.  I'm going to start putting in some roads today.  I am a little leary of doing something fairly permanent since I end up changing things so much.

I have laid out roads with some strips of paper how I think I want it, but I'm sure that if I do anything more permanent, I will end up changing my mind.  That's all part of the fun?

Starting to plan a trip to Utah for later this month.  I've got a brochure that tells how to visit the five national parks in five days, and one main thing to do in each park.  Looking forward to it.

Have a good day, everyone.
