Yes, thank you for properly titling this forum topic[:D][:)][8D]

This is a great idea. I look forward to this topic and getting to know you guys better.

By the way, you guys with 4 and 5 stars, how many hours a day do you spend on here anyway. I have been on this forum from the VERY BEGINNING and don't have 3 yet. Maybe I'm just not as opinionated as y'all [:D]

By the way, I'm Ron, an N-scaler from central MO who, contrary to my user id, models BNSF. I live along the old MoPac Sedalia sub and used to model it, but no more.

I look forward to getting to know y'all better here.

Hi Ron, the answer to your question is WAY TOO MANY. Part of why I have so many posts is I subscribe to 3 of the magazines, so I am active on 3 forums. The other thing is that I don't work for a living in the traditional sense. Those two things give me motive and opportunity. I happen to be number 5 on the all time post list, but moving up fast.

Some of my posts involve opinion, others are made trying to share information and answer questions, and some are just simply for fun. One way that the post count just flys along is by getting involved in a conversation. Suddenly posts come in clumps of 3 or 4 at a time. Also, in the process you get to know people and make friends (or in a few rare cases enemies).

I have actually exchanged emails with most of the people who have responded to this topic up to this point. I do get around.[:D][8D]

Hello, everyone. Lately I've been working on a small diorama depicting a scene near Sherman Hill. It measures about 11" x 12". Not very large, but I've managed to cram some near rock work in it. I've always wanted to try modeling Wyoming scenery.

The diorama will be used to display small locomotives and freight cars. Just thought I'd tell ya'll. [:)]

Hey Ya'll, Which is good Southern for hello to everyone. I think this is a great idea. I love coffee and getting to know the folks on these forums better will be good. I've just gooten started on the last major revision on my layout, increasing curve radius and frog numbers. I enjoy trackwork, but I'm really looking forward to getting it done and getting back to building scenery and other parts of the hobby. It will take a while though because it's springtime in the mountains and it's hard to stay inside when it's so beautiful outside.
Have Fun,
Tom Watkins

You never (NEVER) wash a good coffee pot, just rinse it with cold water, and when you brew a new batch you throw a little salt on top of the grounds and add an eggshell to it and let her brew. (old Navy trick) [(-D][(-D] I really like this idea here, so thanks Big_Boy for bringing this to us. No topic to adhere to, just let her rip with whats on your mind. OH-OH, Bubba (>^..^<) just stopped by to see whats goin on and he got that cat demon look in his eyes!! [(-D][(-D][(-D]


Oh man I couldn't believe it when I read it, someone else who really knows how to make great NAVY COFFEE, NAAAAA, so to the profile I go, YA , he's old enough to know. I haven't had coffee like that since the old "LEX" in the gulf of Mexico back in 1966/67, when I was attached to VT25 out of Beeville Texas. Back then we flew F-9 Cougars and used the old "LEX" for bounce practice and Carrier Qual's. Some of the best chow I ever had in the Navy. Hey LUPO, you would have had a blast on board, they really served grits and scrapple at breakfast and beyond a doubt, some of the best coffee I ever had. [:)][:)][:)]Hey, I think I'll open a restaurant and call it "THE GALLEY". Anyone for a great cup-o-coffee?????[:D][:D][:D]

Well now, I am home from work. I don't want any coffee right now. I have to get my morning nap in before I start the day, if I am lucky the dog will let me sleep to 8 am, and if I am not lucky I will be up before that. I won't get in bed till about 230am. It takes times to wind down and be ready to go to sleep.

But come 8 am I will definately be ready for a cup of Joe. (Better make that about 4 or 5 cups of Joe.) Until then, talk to you all later.

As a displaced Brit I now imbibe the North American style brew and use the get-up-and-go for morning use or staying up late.

I do remember my Mum making a night time drink from Camp brand coffee/chicory essence and hot milk.

What was she thinking?

Well Duchess Von Levy decided I should be up early and started pestering me just before 7 am. (Anyone want a Doberman?) So I got a little over 4 hours sleep. The coffee is on and ready and I am drinking it now. The good thing today is it is Friday and the bad thing about today is I have to work tomorrow (Saturday) night (again). Then again time and a half sure makes the paycheck bigger. [;)] [:)]

Now since we are all up, let me invite everyone to also go to the "Humor Thread" in the trains.mag forum and read/see the joke for the day. I post a joke or a link to a funny pic or joke everyday in the Humor Thread. Many people start their day with coffee and the "joke". So let me invite everyone to take a stroll over to the Humor Thread and see it.

Hey, I was off today after a very long 10 day run and did something that I never do, stayed in bed until 1130am. I'm almost always up by 9am on days off or weekends and never later than 930am. Just really tired I guess. That happens when you get older.

Hi y'all--thought I'd drop in for a chat. Not a coffee drinker (love the smell, but I don't care for the taste), my caffeine comes from Diet Dr. Pepper.

Just a quick story, when I was in the AFRES, the 1st Sergeant told me to make a pot of coffee. Not knowing, I filled the filter with coffee and proceeded about my business. Never was ordered or even asked to make coffee again!!
