Morning all,

I'm having issues with VPN this morning and can't connect to work.  Hopefully I can get it up and running soon.  It's slow as heck when I am connected.  I guess they never planned on having almost all of us (55,000+) work from home.   ;)

Nothing on the modeling front to report.  Just working towards the weekend.

Have a great one and stay healthy!

Morning all,

Well, the City and County Mayors or Orlando got together and decided to sign an Executive Order in an attempt to keep everyone in their houses for two weeks. You can leave for groceries and for take out food. No mention what will happen if caught doing something else. Tell the teacher I guess. Seems like socialism to me.

Ya'll have a healthy day.

Tom ;D

Morning, all.


Interesting change at work.  Last week when I worked, they told us not to wear masks to help conserve, now we're supposed to wear them all the time, reusing and cleaning them.  My clinic is also closed, we're all going to the West side clinic, which is our designated clinic for testing for the Covid-19 virus.   At least I'm off today still.  Started working on a diesel with a sound issue yesterday, hopefully can figure it out today. 


Tom, they probably decided to act as many people (like the Florida beaches during spring break), haven't been following the voluntary stay at home guidelines.  We're lucky here, our governor has said our golf courses will remain open.  We had snow on the ground when she declared that.   :o

Good morning. Not much to say. Taking in a little modeling chit chat before changing over to my work laptop here at home.

Top of a cloudy morning in SE PA to all.  Not in the cube, but working from the train room if you will. Four more work days inclouding today. Tomorrow, have separation interview via Skype.  Today, a video conference of our team.  Never did that before.  Never had to, either.

Good morning! Blazeman is getting close - I will be tipping a glass to celebrate your retirement in four days - but who is counting. I'm doing as much modeling as possible these days and taking advantage of the don't leave your house orders. I did my part for the model train economy and order more supplies for the layout, yesterday. I hope everyone has a great day, stay safe.

Good Morning All,

Day 3 of LAWN CAMP and hopefully the last for now. Later I need to return the wheelbarrow to daughter's house. I came up with a track plan (well most of it) but it needs to stew in the noggin for a couple of days. I guess no rush for at least 2 weeks. As Tom mentioned we have a stay at home order that goes into effect Thursday at 11 pm.

I hope everyone has a good day.

Hope Blazeman has a huge stash of supplies put aside for Saturday. Saw on a website that SE PA can expect our "stay at home" to last through early/mid May. The county has been fairly hardly hit, so we'll have to wait and see.
In other news, there is no additional news this morning..
Stay healthy all.
Working on my second million. I gave up on the first.

Morning,

I hear getting Medicare and disaster relief and corporate bailout is socialism.

Being told to stay home and closing businesses and arresting people for not distancing is communism or a dictatorship!

Warm and sunny here ironically when you ordered to stay at home. Going out on a bike ride with Mrs C this afternoon as our one "allowed" health exercise. The local food store only allows 5 people a time in-store to prevent over crowding. Keep modelling everyone and be safe.

Afternoon


Well this certainly does suck!!!


Even though we are painting the kitchen and keeping away from people.
It sure gets boring not be able to associate...


Oh well it will pass.


Everyone have a great day!!  :)
