Wall Street got it's name for when Farmers would herd stock to market.  The livestock became a bit of a neuscence going all over the place, so walls were put into place to prevent said livestock from going all over the place.

I find that bit of history to be hugely fascinating! I can just imagine the turmoil caused by having hundreds of cattle paraded through the streets of New York on a regular basis. My how times have changed! Or have they? Now it's all yellow taxis. Fortunately they don't seem to need board walls to contain them!

Edit:

Oh boy, oh boy! I have the top of the page! How about I share our dinner with you? I made pork tenderloin stuffed with dried cranberries, panko bread crumbs soaked in cream, spicey red pepper jelly, grape jelly, a tiny bit of Chinese five spice and salt and pepper. It was tender and sweet, but not too sweet, and there was just enough heat to make it very tasty. We served it with roasted zucchini slices covered in bread crumbs and crumbled regiano parmegano cheese with garlic, and a Boston lettuce salad with avocado chunks and Greek dressing. It was as good as it sounds!

I'm just a dude with a bad back having a lot of fun with model trains, and finally building a layout!

I remember you posted that one before Ed.  I'd have to say it was just as interesting to watch the second time aroundYes

The Amish and Mennonite communities are quite fascinating people.

I have heard that Canal Street in New York City actually used to be a canal.

I heard the same thing about Canal Street in New Orleans.

Given this trend, Fort Myers should rename Winkler Road to Canal Street.

My friend Tom painted these small aircraft models for a wargame we have been playing on Friday nights.

I am not sure of the scale, but these planes are only about the size of a nickel. I did not have a tripod or proper lighting, so this is the best I could do for pictures.

-Photograph by Kevin Parson

He even painted "invasion stripes" on some of them

I was simply amazed at the camoflage on this FW-190.

Modeling in all forms can be amazing.

This exhibition of painting skill is incredible to me. Check out the panel lines on the green P-38. My jaw dropped.

Not a single mud flap to be seen — and is that really an old 55 gallon drum strapped to the frame of Bilderback's tractor? Imagine backing with those little 5" round mirrors, probably vibrating like crazy!

Those were the days allright...

Hi Ed, neat video.

I would say go ahead and re-post a pic or video after some time passes if it's a good one.  Perhaps not exactly the same but I always enjoy seeing one of my favorite classic cars again while they're cruising around town in the summertime.  I have talked to the owners of them more than once as well.

 

My best friends in high school were the brothers Lance and Brent.  They lived two Resorts down and one Bay over from ours.  Their family was from a Mennonite Community in Michigan before they moved to the wilderness.  I hadn't moved there yet but heard about it later that their lodge had burned down.

Brent told me how fascinating it was when friends and family came up from Michigan and each member had their part.  The new Lodge was erected in a very short time.  Lance told me how fascinating it was having his part and how smoothly it went.

Half the first floor was pinball, arcade games, pool and foosball where we used to hang out.

Good morning, Diners.   A late tea and toast for me today, Chloe.

Jobs around the house to do,  then bake a pie for dinner.

That's about the best I got for humor this morning and it's rather lame.

 

I miss our friend the Bear and his Beartoons. 

I don't know but I tend to notice things, whether they have any relevance or not is another story.  I do know a rather fun and enjoyable thread of his, "Where's Waldo" just disappeared one day and I haven't seen the Bear since then. Didn't really see any reason for his thread to be deleted as it was rather funny and had plenty of train pictures.  If it was my thread I would have found the disappearance rather irritating.

When all said and done the missing thread was just a thread but the Bear is THE BEAR!  Hopefully he returns as he is definitely missed around here.

Lion.    Those sausages look real tasty.

 

The other day I made some sausage rolls.

I put a layer of chutney on some pastry  that was around 6 inches long- 3 inches wide.

I removed the skin off the sausages  and laid it on the chutney.

Fold over the pastry into a roll

Cut the roll into three  sausage rolls

Do that three times.  Put the rolls on a baking tray.   With a pastry brush, coat with a little milk  to brown.

In the oven 180 degrees for 25 minutes or so.

 

Once cooled  ----    Gone in 60 seconds.  Laugh

 

Then get requests from the family to make some more.  Yeah

David -

I'm thinking that your 180 degrees is Celsius.  180 for us crazy Americans will get you warm mush in 25 minutes! Dead  Yanks need to set their ovens for a hair more than 350 (Fahrenheit). Dinner

After all these years, I'm unsure what our friends to the north use when baking.  Does metric necessarily flop over into a preference for Celsius?

Always enjoy your inclusion of eats on your side of the Pond.  Hope Dawn has had one of her better days.  And you, too!

Well, I did not find 180' F to be outragious. It is just slow cooking. It is best to cook meats at the temperature that you want to serve them at. You just haf to increase the time.

But then, I am a Lion, and me likes me meat RARE!

Good morning, diners.  Bacon, eggs, and black coffee, please.  I never get tired of breakfast.

The snow is gone, and the birds are going nuts building nests, fighting for territory, and eating like pigs.

John, I thought the same thing.  I wondered why David was cooking something at such a low temperature.  My mind just automatically thought Fahrenheit.  Are we the only country still using it?

Lion, you can keep your rare food.  Even though I grew up in a family that liked meat rare, I always wanted it well-done.  I'm not sure why, but it has stayed that way my whole life.

Dave and David, it sounds like you both are accomplished cooks, and I wish I lived closer to you.  I would 'accidentally' drop by your house for a visit in the evening hoping to get invited to stay.

Ed and TF, we have several Mennonite towns near us.  They are not the 'strict' Amish, but they live on modern farms and used modern conveniences.

Kevin, I am always amazed at the ability of some people to make such perfect miniature models.  My clumsy fingers keep me from attempting such fine painting.

I also miss BearToons.  Hopefully he will be back with us soon.  The same for all the other missing diners.

 

At one time, the stockyards at Omaha were the largest in the world.  They are no longer there.

 

Have a good Saturday!

Good Morning,

A cool day here, about 35 F for a high but cloudy with a strong NW wind.

John,  Canada went metric in 1978 but we still use some of the 'old' system. For cooking it is still ounces, pounds, quarts and farenheit. For building it is inches and feet. Distance and temp is all kilometres and celcius. Liquid is all in litres. 

Our snow is slowly melting. Down to 1 or 2 feet in the back yard. By the end of next week it should be largely gone. 

I only have one stock car on the layout and that was a generous gift from Dave. 

I may make an ebay bid this weekend but not hopeful given the way all others have gone. That will be the excitement foe the weekend. I have to get the tax stuff together and get it to the accountant.

First, another coffee is in order.

Where is Bear?

CN Charlie

Ha, Ha!!  I find it intersting that my "bleah" emoticon turned into "dead" when LION added it to his post above.  Most "dead" Yanks no longer cook.  On the other hand, there are those zombies in the movies which seem in most other respects to be Americans.  Do they whip stuff up other than mayhem? Laugh

I have a few stock cars, ranging back to an old yellow Athearn one from my original HO trains.  Many of them are high-quality Walthers kits, including a pair of double deck stock cars for smaller animals.  For that reason, I went with hogs for the stock yard outside my old Swift slaughterhouse.

Back in my single-digit age years, I had O-scale Lionels.  I loved their operating cattle stock car.  For those who don't know it, it came with a vibrating platform with a similar vibrating path through the stock car.  The cattle were on individual platforms equipped with tiny protrusions which pushed the cows forward.

When we joined the European Union  everything except our money changed to metric.  We did not want the Euro coin.

 

Dinner  Corned beef, onion and potato pie.

Roll out some pastry and place on a large plate.

Potato cooked in water and two beef stock cubes.

When cooked  add a little milk and pepper and mash.

Add finely cubed corned beef, cubed onion,  and brown sauce.  Mix well.

Place the mixture on the pastry.    Some more pastry on top to form a lid.  Cut three small slits into the pastry.   With the pastry brush  brush pie with milk to brown.

Into the oven at 180C  for 45 minutes.

Serve with vegetables.

 

My grandmother taught me well.  Big Smile

I thought about having a stockyard across from my meat packing house.

Just not enough room to do it justice (anybody want it?) Yes, I have dairy cows and calves in there, goats too. It was more of a petting zoo than a slaughter house.

Plus a smattering of stock cars. The old Proto Matheson cars are very nice.

I almost bought one of those spiffy C&O/B&O "streamlined" stock cars in brass but the little gem went for almost $400! Just a bit more than I'd like to spend for one piece of rolling stock.

The Bowser PRR stock cars are nice for an unusual (strictly PRR) car.

Sorry -- I didn't mean to imply that you changed anything.  I thought it was funny that the forum software changed the 'dead' emoticon into the word "dead" in the quote.

I actually was reading the posts in reverse order, so I read your post with the quote before I read the actual post, and I was trying to figure out what that quote meant.

Funny stuff!
