My post from last month that did mention the ‘Big Boy’ run across the Midwest.



Just some of the ‘Big Boy’ videos now on YouTube. Search on ‘big boy 4014’.


Well I am sure that some of you by now have sussed out that I am a HUGE train buff. I make no secret of it.

One of my favorite U.S. locomotives is, of course, the ‘Big Boy‘. I used to have two of them in N-scale but my son, then young, destroyed one of them. But, I still have the other.

Watching these videos of the restored U.P. ‘Big Boy 4014’ is quite a treat. I wanted to make sure that you knew they were there on YouTube.

Braxton, Our Harrier’s 6th Birthday, July 20, 2019 — McDonald’s As Is The Ritual.

Taking the dogs to the Alton McDonald’s (at the circle) for their respective birthdays, May 15 & July 20, has now been a firm tradition for at least 11-years (methinks). Started with Ulysses when we moved to Alton in 2007. It has continued with Maya and Braxton.

Braxton, being your quintessential British hunting dog, like the Queen, has an OFFICIAL birthday — July 20 (which was Deanna’s father’s birthday). But, alas, unlike the Queen he doesn’t have a real birthday. Given that he is our rescue dog nobody knows for sure when he was born. They think it was around the 3rd week in July.

This year, i.e., 2019, we added ice cream to the menu. Maya is more fond of it than Braxton. Braxton likes his customized cheeseburgers. Given how hot it was today the ice creams were good for them.

It is not the only time we take them to this McDonald’s. They get to go on a fairly regular basis. They know the routine when we get there. They each get two plain cheeseburgers and whatever buns I do not eat. No fries. They are happy.

It is fun. Teischan enjoys it as much as the dogs and, of course, she gets food and ice cream too. So, she does better than the dogs. She is the one that keeps track of these birthdays.

So, both their birthdays in 2019 are done.

Very First Post,
June 30, 2009.


Yes, I know that others have millions of followers. Well, I don’t. I finally got up to 500. I am happy with that. To I that is a big number. That said, just the other day I was telling a friend of Facebook that the largest group to whom I have given a presentation was 670. That was a long time ago, in Glasgow to boot. So, I can kind of visualize 500 people.

It wasn’t that long ago, maybe 4-years, when I had less than hundred.

I am very grateful and honored.

THANK YOU to all that follow this blog. Much appreciated. I will continue to do my utmost to elucidate and entertain each and every one of YOU. You are my BASE. Thank YOU.

‘The Barnstormers’ At The ‘Castle In The Clouds’, July 10, 2019 — Left You Wanting More, Much More.

by Anura Guruge


It was OUTSTANDING.

Left one wanting MORE … MORE … MORE.

This was the first time the ‘Castle in the Clouds‘ had done this event, i.e., having the ‘Barnstormers‘ (from Tamworth, NH) perform, and with their customary Midas touch they hit a rich vein of pay dirt. It was OUTSTANDING. The best $10 I have spent in years. Wow. Loved it as did everyone else that was there — and it was a full house.

Very well organized and that the upstairs room in the imposing Carriage House is air-conditioned and that there were adult beverages for sale was a bonus.

Yes, it was advertised that it would be ‘about an hour’. It lasted 44-minutes from the time the cast arrived in the room till they took their final bow. The timestamps on my pictures tell the stories. That was our only disappointment. It should have been longer. Even a full hour would have been too short. 90-minutes would have been close to perfect — and they could have definitely charged us more. Well worth it.

Great cast. Enormously talented. Very personable. Bravo.

THANK YOU ‘Castle in the Clouds‘. Another wonderful event.
