    Thx for the email Chief. Those guys can ignore me and they can ignore that jerk wad, but they better not ignore da Chief, lol! Thanks for standing up. Apparently I forgot my login over there or it went inactive. PS - anybody makes fun of the TARDIS will never get a bowl of banilla, that's for sure!

    Good afternoon all,
    Just had to quit IE7 {again} another gremlin with it, blasted thing has forgotten how to store my logins for my favourite sites, so it's back to Firefox. I gave up on Outlook ages ago, it's just too complex.
    Microsoft is getting less and less user friendly.
    It frightens me what windows7 might throw up, I think I'm going for Apple when this thing starts to sprout whiskers.

    Good afternoon folks

    It has been a busy day. I had to visit a project up in Bucks County for a Final Inspection. We had to build a wall along the Delaware Canal where the Delaware River washed out the side of the canal and some of the road a couple of years ago. We then went to look at another site that is still under construction. I just got home about an hour ago.

    We had a busy weekend. Saturday we did some running around to various stores getting odds and ends. I mowed the grass. Sunday we went out to Lancaster and the Rockvale Outlets to pick up a sports folding chair for my FIL. It has all these compartments and a cooler for sodas built-in. we also found the elusive candlesticks for our new kitchen table. We stopped at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania. We had not been there in a while and it was nice to all the changes. The yard was also opened so we got to see the trains there. I took a bunch of pictures and once I get them uploaded I will post them.

    No modeling got done.

    I hope everybody has a good evening

    Good morning folks

    It was 74 F and getting sticky. High today will be 89 F.

    Once again I am having one of those mornings. I got this morning after being in the field all day yesterday to find out that I have to go to another field meeting this afternoon. This meeting is to discuss the relocation of one the state bike routes in Chester County. The fun never stops.

    In football my son made varsity for the time being. He may have also worked his way into starting center. He is not thrilled about playing center. The coaches seemed to be granting his wish but the other boys they tried at the position did not seem to be working out. He wants to play defense. He has been the center three out of the last four years, so this would be his fourth if it goes that way.

    No modeling last night. I keep looking at the layout wondering when I will get back to it.

    I hope everybody has a good day.
