    Don't let that scare you. All that mess IS just power wiring. Notice nothing connected to the AIU. But, I'm a switch/light freak. I like having lots of switches and lights scattered around. So it is much more complicated than it needs to be. Plus I wanted the ability to troubleshoot/modify easily. So did some extra wiring and such. DCS/TMCC is really easy to wire, and in most cases simplier than conventional.

    Afternoon All!

    Doug: Looks like she taught an old dog some new tricks! :thumb:

    New HD in the laptop...Seagate 80gig, 5400rpm up frpm 4200. This thing screams! Still need to load some additional software...Had 'No OP' errors, and memory errors...Not anymore! Also stripped all the junk off.

    Me and the kids have the sniffles here...Bride seems to have avoided it.

    Lowe's has marked down all their 'seasonal heating stuff'. Heaters, fireplaces...etc. Picked up a 35k btu Reddy Heater for $50 for the garage, but I left the CA superglue in the cart in the parking lot...DOH. The 2025 wheels will have to wait.

    NASCAR----sorry boys, left turns with highly paid actors and mostly over rated machines. Can we say commercialsism at it's best? or worst? The networks/NASCAR know how to market their product.

    Got home from taking my son to guitar lesson and crashed. I am trying not to catch this virus. So far my daughter and I have avoided it but she now sounds like she is coming down with it. I woke up this morning with a sore throat and coughing. Called the doctor and he ordered me a Z-pack which I got on the way from the guitar lesson.

    I have to go find my credit card. Time to renew my subscription to Raiload Model Craftsman.

    Evening all, sleeting here. Sending it off to Kurt and friends out east. And of course, it will all freeze tomorrow. Thank goodness for buried utilities. The post carrier didn't bother climbing the hill to deliver the mail - what was that about 'neither rain, nor snow, nor gloom of night...' Might have to call on that. Went out for pizza with the bride and now avoiding the newspaper - full of glum news.

    Have to get some of the Chief's special formula - I had a professor stop by my office to tell me how grey I looked - what does one say to that? :cool: Feel better, Tom. My son plays guitar too. Heck, I know, I know, but I still like Nascar - go Junior! - Now where's this league?

    Hey, 38 down in today's Trib crossword - 9 letters, Lionel Products....
    t-r-a-i-n-s-e-t-s. Cool!

    Chief: the photo was taken just south of Cape Canaveral. So you can guess what the bird is with its tail on fire.
    We're in Orlando this week and when we heard the shuttle was scheduled to go up, we went over, even with only a 30% chance of suitable weather. I came back with sunburned knee-backs and neck.
    Have been to 3 hobby shops this week - 2 Orlando and one St Pete. None located in areas that would make the tourist brochures. Did manage to spend a pile today -- would you believe mostly Bachmann track and British posters?

    Any good shops in Miami area? That's next week.

    60103, Orlando!!! My town. Been going there for 3 years now to work the Bass Pro Shops. Went twice a year [first part of Feb, usually this weekend and the first weekend in April]. Will not go this year. BPS condinced their events and I will stay close to home except one in Prattville AL. Was foruntate enough to get a fed pass to one shuttle launch. Outstanding. You could feel the vibartion and roar of the rockets in your chest as it left the pad. Glad you got to see it.

    NowI hear Buckeye went north to MI to fish. Hope he catches something.

    Good night all. :thumb:

    Its in the same sub-forum as this thread. Go back to the Caboose menu, and it is about 2 threads down.

    This could be a fun topic if enough of us do it.

    Good morning to all - wife is a funeral this morning and I"m still stuck at home. I'm getting major cabin fever. Need to put in a couple hours on insulating the basement and then be sure I'm done in time to watch my son get a whupping for not cleaning his room to spec. Should be a good show. I've already given him the warning, so my conscience is clear.:cry:

    Sir James, going to any shows this weekend? Sorry I made you mad.:confused:

    Doug - cool crossword puzzle!:thumb:

    Cool pics, Jeff :thumb:

    Guys the post office tells the mail carriers, If it does not look safe,DON't go there. If they have a safe path to the box then you should get your mail.
