Ole buzzard posted on Photography Iowa Pacific ran a Chicago-Prairie Du Chien, Wis., excursion this weekend. With the Wisconsin state capitol building in the background, the train's two E8s and matching train set on the causeway at Monona Bay this afternoon. It is quite a beautiful train in its chocolate and orange scheme.
Ole buzzard posted on Photography The city of Owosso, Michigan, is celebrating its Trainfest this weekend. The highlight of the festivities is the reunion of Pere Marquette locomotive 1225 and Nickel Plate locomotive 765. If they appear similar, it is because they both share the 2-8-4 wheel arrangement, and were built from the same blueprints. At the time they were built, both the Pere Marquette and Nickel Plate were under the control of brothers by the name of Von Swearingen. One of their objectives was to standardize the motive power on the railroads under their control.
Ole buzzard posted on Veterans' Page & Militaria I got a mailer from the VA earlier this week touting their new Million Veteran Program (MVP ). The brochure says "MVP aims to be one of the largest programs on genes and health in the United States."
What they want me to do is to go to my nearest VA facility and give them a blood sample so they can study my genetic material.
Let me understand this. I turn over my genetic information to the government for them to study. What could possibly go wrong?????
P.S. Didn't they do this in Nazi Germany, too? Just asking.
Ole buzzard posted on Pet PeevesPeople who don't properly dispose of chewing gum! I stopped at a gas station today to gas up my truck, and as soon as I step out of the cab, I step into a gigantic wad of chewing gum. I didn't realize it until I tried to pick up my foot and almost stepped out of my shoe.

Ole buzzard posted on Main Page The Lobby Yotty and I were driving home from having birthday dinner yesterday when we heard the news about Eric Cantor. We were just pulling up to a four way stop when we heard it, and I am so glad there was no one behind us, because we were bouncing in our seats, high-fiving, etc.

NotaBene Loved your post OB, glad you and Yotty heard the great news after your birthday dinner. I was at home cooking dinner when I heard the news and was delighted also. That De-Cantor is beautiful!
