Ole buzzard



   Ole buzzard posted on Photography  Another member of the Von Swearingen brothers' 2-8-4 family, Chesapeake & Ohio #2716, also built from the same blueprints as Pere Marquette #1226 and Nickel Plate #765. The only differences are mainly cosmetic such as placement of the headlights and the styling of the air pump covers.

   MeiDei  Minimum speed? : ) Around here, except in fog or foul weather, going 15 miles under the speed limit is considered loitering.

   Balogreene  Driving sports cars, I've always been careful about not going more than 5 mph above Speed limit (we don't have minimums in VA, but did in IL ). Since they moved our office from 8 miles from home to 25 miles from home, I'm doing closer to 10 miles over! And, I have to be in the right lane, or I'll get run over!

   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 Peeves  People 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.
