Last time I turned on the TV here was about a year ago

 
You have the right idea Ray.  TV is kind of a waste of time as there is always something better to do.  I usually watch it at bedtime to fall asleep to.
 
Back in the day I never watched TV.  I was always doing something after work.  I didn't even know what popular shows like Seinfeld, Friends and some of the other garb were.  Until TiVo came out and my Mom got it for me for Christmas with a two-year subscription.  That kind of screwed me up for a while but I did like the forward fast through commercial option and got good at itLaugh
 
I must say my choice of what I will watch mainly is the History Channel, Discovery Ch. educational shows you learn from.  I really like that old one Seconds From Disaster.  Megastructures, How things are made, stuff like that.

So my Clear Select Pine comes from Chile Bear.

 

No, you do have New Zealand grown Clear Pine. 
 

Gotcha...

Got all my face frames together today Bear.  That clear select Pine sure is beautiful.  It's been awhile since I worked with some nice stuff like that.

I do like knotty pine, especially after the Danish Oil goes on and the knots pop.  I just don't like wrestling with it making face frames for cabinetry though.  The clear stuff goes together so much better.

 

Have a good morning

I'm a TV-aholic.

In my first apartment, I was in a distant city, unmarried, and I knew no one there.  I came home from work and turned on the TV.  The TV was like a friend that kept me company.

I still do that.  When I walk into the layout room, the TV goes on.

Crazy, huh?

Not real crazy

Sometimes it's what you're used to John.  When Judy and I were first together, she had to have the TV on to go to sleep and on all night.  I wasn't used to that at all,  it took some time.... 

 

 

26 years later,  I go to sleep watching TV and the TV is on all night.  It has a super dim mode,  the volume is very low,

 

But the TV is on all night longLaugh

 

No one is watching it,  it's kind of like you said,  a friend in the background

My wife is exactly the same. TV on all night for no reason at all.

It has been that way for 30+ years now.

She says if the TV is off any little noise will wake her up and she cannot sleep.

Good morning.  I'm headed out for a walk, and then I'll have bacon, eggs, and coffee.

Rob, I hope your reaction to the chemo is not severe.  I hope and pray it will be effective.

Nothing going on today, so the Altair National Bank on the layout will probably get some work finished.

Judy has the same reason.  But the problem for me is,  any little noise is when they turn up the volume for the commercials or they have some paid program for some miracle vitamin that will make you new again.  They always use a bright white screen in the background to wake you up so you can join in the fun and buy some.  The things we tolerate to keep our women happySad I tell ya.

Today is Judy's birthday.  I didn't forget that one!  I can't, I don't have a dog house anymoreLaugh  She can be a bit peculiar.  She wants to continue sorting through storage today so we can get rid of it soon.  It's a great idea but what woman would want to do that on her birthday.

We've had that Darn storage since we downsized from our house I lived in for 33 years.  Seven years and $7,000 spent to keep a bunch of stuff.  With that money I could have bought everything three times over again. 

We are taking all our belongings that we no longer have room for to an auction house in St Louis Park so we can finally get rid of this storage facility.  I'll have to swallow hard as some of that stuff is my Denon monster system with all my Klipsch high-end speakers.  Oh well, my ears don't like loud anymore anyway.

There are boxes of sentimental stuff she needs to go through but we should be rid of this money pit by fall.  Something we should have taken care of years ago.

I'm hoping things don't take too long so I can take her to El Loro for a nice Mexican dinner.

 

You're included in our prayers Rob.  Welcome back Spacemouse

 

Make it a great day all

Good Morning All,

   I'll have a regular to go please Zoe. 72F and rain forecast so as I try to juggle shop and trailer jobs I will get after the trailer first until the rains come. I have been lurking back and forth but haven't had much to say. Haven't been near the layout for a while and am starting to do the touch up and prep work so we can show the house later this year. Not too much but lots of little things, some new storm doors and some paint and such. The biggest job I see is stripping and refinishing the exposed part of the foundation where the paint is in poor shape. Thinking it would be an ideal cleanup job for a pressure washer with the wet media applicator. 

   Good to see Chip back. I hope Robs' chemo goes well. I have had a couple of friends get it with good result.    Off to the trailer.   Ciao, J.R.

Good morning ... 

TV ? .... Waste of time.

Movies? .... Bigger waste of time. 

Rob .... Best wishes to you regarding chemo. 

Chip .... Good to see you. 

Model railroading .... The trains operated well when I showed the layout for weekend company. .... Last night, I was running an ore train (NP F-units ABA), a general freight train with CB&Q F3 ABBA, and a genral freight train with 2 CB&Q SD24's. Passenger trains running were my "Heartland Zephyr" with a pair of BLI CB&Q E7's, a CB&Q heavyweight train with a 4-8-2 steam loco, and the Empire Builder with two P2K CB&Q E7's.  

 

Everybody .... Have a good day.

My surround sound system and hifi were replaced by a bar in front of the TV. Music is all headphones because no one likes my music. How bad can Kabuki Polka Accordian and Bagpipes music be anyway. 

My system got donated to a local 2nd hand store. Sigh.

I like quite a wide range of music Chip.  I guess it depends on what kind of mood I'm in.  Polka is a happy sounding music.  Most of the times I hear it there is some kind of event or celebration going on where everyone is having fun.  What's not to like?

The Bagpipes!Stick out tongue, that's in my blood.  This Ol' Scotch-Irish boy may occasionally get a tear in his eye from some of that delightful sounding music.

It's funny.  Well over 15 years ago for Saint Patrick's Day, myself, family and friends pre-arranged one of the bagpipe bands that go through the local pubs in West Saint Paul to make their last stop at Uncle Butchie's.

Just after 2:00 in the morning they circled the house playing their music.  We all walked out to the front grinning.  I'm sure the Non Irish Neighbors didn't care for that too much.  I know some other ones did though.  Some Thank You's were received the next day around noonWhistling

 

Well, I got out of the storage shuffle as it started raining and Judy had a change of agenda.......Happy

Now I can work on mybench work until dinner tonight.

I still have one of the first high-end Sony amps with Dolby 7.1 that I bought about 25 years ago for way high money. It was so modern all that time ago that it still has an input that works with my new Sony Blue-Ray player.

I also still have the same main loudpseakers that I built back then, but the other five speakers are just off-the-shelf items now, and mounted in the walls.

Movies are amazing at my house. Sound is such a big part of modern movies.

I love watching my movies.

I used to like movies, but lately it's all cartoons and superheroes.  I guess I have aged out of the film market.

One local theater is showing Galaxy Quest, but no, I'm not going to a theater quite yet.  A restaurant, yes, but not a theater.

Since this is a train forum, how many of us smile when we think of Emporer of the North with Lee Marvin and Ernest Borgnine?

Yes...  The cats are closer to being in tune!  LOL   Well actually a properly tuned bagpipe is just not tuned to the same "modern" aka, well tempered scale system that we are used to from "elite" European Culture...  It uses a much older tuning system.  Many people don't realize that the only "Universal" scale is actually pentatonic which has been used by many cultures and for well over 500,000 years.

Howdy all!  My daughter passed her driving test.  I wasn't so sure there for a while.  I took her out this last weekend and made her practice a variety of things, parallel parking being one of them.  Not sure what happened between Sunday and Tuesday.  I swear she thought she could levitate the car into the parallel parking spot. Sigh  It was embarrasing.  If she hadn't done perfectly on the rest of it she would have failed the test.  When I asked her what happened between the weekend and the test, she said she didn't know.  Nerves I guess.

Good luck with the chemo, Rob.  Pulling for you.

TV watching for me is pretty limited.  Football, some hockey, and one or two shows that I may or may not catch.  The only one I was religious about is the old Top Gear (British version), now Grand Tour.  I'm going to miss that one when it's done.  That would be plenty of TV for me.  However, my daughters love TV (big surprise there) so I watch more than I want to as part of simply spending time with them.  Not many more years before they've flown the coop.  Gotta take the time while I can.  The trains will always be there.

A little mid-day dessert on me guys.

One of my favorite McCartney tunes — the pipes are haunting.

This was played at my dad's memorial service and, I'll tell you, there wasn't a dry eye in the house.

Was Paul McCartney really THAT young? I saw him twice in concert, once in '66 and again in '87.

Good afternoon all, it is yet another beautiful day on the West Coast.

Made an appointment to get my eyes tested, it has been ten years and I definitely need new glasses, not that I ever wear them. It has been twenty years at least since I got new glasses. I have always been so active and they would constantly get knocked off my face so I couldn't be bothered.

Back is still killing me but with some improvement but here I sit. Still getting bike time in, I don't make excuses for not staying in shape. I was getting out of the pool the other day and the kid said to me, "Dad, you still "sort of" have a six-pack going, that is pretty amazing for a 63 year old". I was not sure how to take that, but he meant it as a compliment.Laugh 

I don't watch much TV at all other than movies and for that, I have a pretty good sound system. My 18" subwoofers each have a 350-watt amp built into them and will go subsonic, meaning lower than you can hear, but you can certainly feel a Klingon battle cruiser before you see or hear it. Subsonic will not be heard through cable subscribed outlets, only Blu-ray has that information on it. Subsonic is usually below 16HZ.

The subwoofer market is generally a scam in my eyes as any subwoofer sold in the big box stores will not go as low as a quality speaker to begin with, so you don't need one if you have good speakers. I just had my four bose 601s completely rebuilt as the diaphragms had aged out. When I picked them up the tech took me into the lab to listen and they measured down to 26HZ on the low end, my subs were in the low teens last time they were measured. I use the Bose for the surround in the BAT movie palace. The Bose are great for symphony and any acoustic music not so much for rock and roll so I have two big Paisley monitors for the rock shows. I do have picky taste when it comes to sound to the point where people ask me how I can tune my guitar while I am playing a song.Laugh If quality of sound doesn't matter to you don't worry about it, buying expensive audio equipment is a waste to those that can't hear the difference, our ears are all different.

When I worked for the Feds they spent thousands on driving courses for me as I did drive some very sensitive things at times so I guess they thought it was important I was well trained. I lost count of the new learning and refreshers I had. Before I retired they had asked me to go on as an instructor, however I had enough of work. I had no real interest in driving other than it was an important part of the duties I was required to carry out. The courses were a lot of fun though, getting some pretty big trucks out on the skid courses. I probably logged more time in smaller vehicles than anything with airbrakes, that being said when I retired after 36 years and more than two million miles, I had never had an accident. 

When it came time to teach the kid to drive I know I was more qualified than a driving school to do so and proceeded to teach the kid to drive. The day of his test I was sitting on a cement wall between Tim Hortons and the Motor Vehicle Branch when they rolled in from the test. They got out and instead of walking into the far end of the building the examiner and the kid walked the length of it towards me and I am thinking OH OH! this can't be good.Laugh The examiner said, "did you teach him to drive"? Now I'm really waiting for it.Tongue Tied She said you did a really good job with him, he is without a doubt the best-prepared new driver I have ever taken out. She showed me the exam sheet and said "look, not a mark on it. I was relieved, to say the least. Laugh

Well, I think I will hobble out and finish up the pressure washer work and get a giant Rum and Pepsi in hand and watch the Vancouver Canucks destroy St. Louis. 

Stay safe and well, all the best to all.

Hi gang,

We are sitting on the bank of the Mattawa river at a beautiful classic northern Ontario cottage. This is by far the nicest cottage that we have ever rented. It is very well equipped and everything is in excellent condition. The BBQ looks to be brand new. The supplied linens are hotel quality. Our hosts even left a bottle of shiraz and a s'mores kit for us! The first bird we saw was a mature bald eagle, followed shortly after my an immature one.

We are looking forward to the next eight days.

Just to be clear--perhaps I wasn't before--I listen to a shamisen-a 3-stringed Japanese stringed instrument, an accordian, and bagpipes playing in a trio specializing in marching polka music. I don't understand why the kids want nothing of it. 

It's alright. I can ignore them if I'm wearing headphones.

I had a high school football player from my school (he was in school when I still worked) came by to sell a discount card, raising money for the football team.

I took him to the layout room to show him what I've been working on.

He started naming the locomotives!  He knew every single loco I've got.  I found out he is a huge train fan, and has started buying some HO equipment.  He is not building a layout yet for some good reasons, but I encouraged him that someday he will be able to.

Made my week!

Good Evening,

I can't understand how anyone doesn't love the sound of a good pipe(bagpipe) and drum band. Nothing more rousing. Mind you the French in the Napoleonic wars weren't too fond of that sound as it meant Scottish soldiers. They called them the 'ladies from hell'.  Very fierce fighters. 

My brass Pacific has left Toronto and is 'in transit' so I hope to have it Friday or Monday. I'll be taking my BLI Pacific in the LHS to put on consignment. The proceeds will at least cover the re-motor and decoder installation and a little more hopefully. 

Another exciting day of grocery pickups and delivering some to my MIL. 

Seems like many of us have or had good stereo systems. I have an Arcam amp and Mirage M series speakers. When we did a reno of the living room, we put the speaker wire behind the new drywall so it looks neat but there is a lot of very expensive wire coiled up in the wall. The speakers are bi-wired so the speaker wires are in a cable that is about as thick as dryer cable. Paid $17 a foot for it over 20 years ago. If we move I might just cut the drywall to get the wire out and then get the drywall repaired. 

We do watch a fair bit of TV but most is on the PVR so we can skip any commercials. We mostly watch Brit series that are on PBS and a few other channels. The new Endeavour series has started and we really enjoy it. 

Well time for tea and tellie.

My wife only likes 5% of the music that I like, but I like 100% of the music she likes, so we listen to her music.

Her I-tunes would only have 300 songs, mine has 20,000!

Congratulations, Ken!  It shouldn't take long and you'll see a $0 balance on one of your monthly statements.

Good morning

Had fun with Judy for her birthday dinner last night.  She changed her mind and wanted philly cheese steak subs instead of a Mexican dinner.  Since El Loro is right down the street from us we have been going there quite frequently and a little burnt out.

I took her to the Northstar Tavern that has a large patio and is know for thier slow cooked meats that melt in your mouthDinner

It had rained all day.  It was perfect as right when we we're done with dinner a steady sunshower began.  Judy loves rainbows and got quite a colorful one for her birthday.  I stopped at Lunds and got her a birthday cake for later in the evening.

 

I envy you Dave!  That Cottage on the River sounds like a great time.  Crack a cold one and fire up that new Barbie and just relax enjoying the view.  I'm sure you'll break that Grill in properly but is there enough room in that cabin freezer for all your meat cuts? PirateDinner  Sounds like you and the wife are really going to enjoy yourself with some good tranquil R&RYes

 

That's the one Ed.  My favorite Paul McCarthy song that starts a tear.  That song Holds special meaning for me as well.

I see you like the sound of the Pipes too Charlie.  The history that goes along with the bagpipes is interesting as you pointed some out.  And I agree with you that there is nothing better than the sound of bagpipes played by a professional Pipe & Drum band.  Not your statement but I am man enough to admit, bagpipes being played by an amateur sure does sound like cats fightingTongue TiedLaugh  I would hate to be a Scottish parent with my teenager in the high school band practicing his instrument at homeLaugh

A lot of people don't know the Uilleann Pipes was more of the Irish descent and has a softer sound to it.  Most images of the instrument being played is held in the lap.  The War Pipes or Highland PipesPirate are more of the Scottish descent.  They can be heard for miles is why they are widely used in Saint Patrick's Day parades.   "Manly Yes But I Like It Too" LaughLaughLaugh

 

Well, I made some more progress on my cabinet benchwork yesterday.  The cheapest 3ft drawer slides I could find are $40-$50 a piece.  Ain't gonna happen as there is 16 drawers.  I am back to the drawing board as I'm gonna have to pull some kind of carpenter trick out of my hat.

 

Have a great day everyone
