    Thanks Guys

    I think I understand now how it works, doesn't make sense but I understand. You get so used to having links still show up, just change color that it threw me. The only other forum I post on is a yahoo forum for samoyed owners and it is just the different color links.
    I joined the gauge just before the change and therefore I knew nothing about the previous version.
    I do want to mention I do visit other Railroad forums (not a member) to see whats happening. All of you guys should pat yourselves on the back as you are quite polite, well informed, correct information tactfully when needed, and don't speculate on things you're not sure of.
    That is what makes this forum so valuable to me.
    Thanks again for the help
    Charlie

    Yeah - believe it or not, most of the mods here are members of other forums, we trade information so that all can learn... And some can learn from our mistakes too :D :D

    We do - as Ezdays said - respect and thank our members for helping us keep The Gauge a great place to gather information and just hang around.. :D

    ~~~~ Thanks !!!!

    Hi everyone
    Went to see Pirates of the Carabean 3 today, and it was a lot better than the seccond movie IMO. Then leraned that Davis Trains is closing for some reason (they were doing quite well last I went), and that a new store, DCCTrains, had oppened on Beechmont. The bad part? DCCTrains specializes in DCC ONLY apraently, and DCC is FAR out of my range! Their stock is small, but hey, they oppened last April, plus they aparently do Custom work in painting and products, so it may turn out alright.

    Cheers
    CNWman

    Good to hear the movie review! Since I've taken time to see the first two Pirates films I feel the need to see the third. I didn't like the second very much really. A little heavy on the chase scenes and it seems to be the Hollywood formula to make everything go sour in the second film of a series of three.

    Sunday night and racing toward Monday morning WAY too fast! :)

    I didn't like the seccond movie much myself, it seemed focused on Elizabeth's love triangle more than the misadventures of Jack. As for your "formula", Ralph, it seems the critics think the third movie most often goes bad according to what's said about Spiderman 3 and Shrek 3, and look at the last two Matrix movies, those were total messes IMHO!

    Historically - the "second" movie always does worse than the first.... The Third - depends on the series or story and fan base... If the second stunk - you lose the 3rd - unless the first was really really good.....

    what they are talking about now, is that Spiderman, Shrek & Pirates "one" were all great movies.... And the second ones were "not as good" now thay have confirmed that Spidey 4 and Pirates 4 will be made.... -- It's all about the money....

    Now - the exception to the rule..... Every other Star Trek (odd numbered) did worse than the one just before it... Wrath of Kahn was an exception to the "Second Movie Curse" - it did way better than "The Motion Picture"

    Star Trek: The Motion Picture
    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
    Star Trek III: The Search for Spock
    Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
    Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
    Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
    Star Trek: VII Generations
    Star Trek: VIII First Contact
    Star Trek: IX Insurrection
    Star Trek: X Nemesis

    Star Trek XI is due out X-mas 2008 - They hope by re-vitalizing the "Young Kirk, Spock & McCoy story" they can breath new life into the series..... We can only hope..........

    Something else - if you're interested..... Always collect the First 2 issues of any comic book..... The printers don't print too many #2's.. because they aren't sure of the amount of buyers of the first issue... They print comics the month before they are on the stands..... So, issue 2 goes to press the month that the first issue is on the stands....

    Then based on the First issue sales, they can gauge the third issue quantities during the second month....

    So the Second issue is the rarest, and the first of course is collectible - "Just 'cause it's first"

    Yeah - I agree - it was great :) :) Hope you stayed through the credits to see the surprise at the end :) :) :) really cool!!!! :D

    3 hours is a long time to be in a movie though, (Counting 15 min of ads at the beginning). It didn't seem like it was 3 hours, because of the excitement of the movie... LOL

    Had an 911 call at 3:45 this morning. Here's a copy of my report.

    Monday, June 04, 2007. 911 called out Sundown Fire Dept for a transformer fire at Norm's RV Park on Hwy 171, north of Leesville. Safety Officer (Sundown 3) went to station (station 23) and readied all vehicles (Sundown pumper 1 and tanker 3). Sundown Sub-station (station 23A) (Empire Point pumper 1) prepared for action. Asst Chief went to scene to access the situation and declared said situation code 4 (under control). The call-out was 10-22'd (cancelled) after 15 minutes.

    Jeffrey Wimberly, SD3, Safety Officer, SVFD.

    Gunna have a very sunny day here in the greater Phoenix area, it should reach 108 in most parts and up to 110 around Buckeye and a few other outlying towns. They say a "cold front" is moving in so tomorrow should be about 10 degrees cooler. Man, I'm looking for my woollies if it gets that cold....:rolleyes: :rolleyes:
