Nice train set, RH
When I saw that you had posted on a thread titled, "Off Season Indoor Activities", I totally expected you to point out that all of your kids were born in the fall.

Default Winter hobby

In the winter I build furniture and make trim for my house . Below is a pic of my shop it is 20 x 24 with 9' ceilings. That is a combination machine which is a table saw, jointer, planer, shaper all in one which not related to a Shopsmith type machine.

Too many whites in that rack. What about the Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Crianza, Chianti, etc. ?

I don't remember the color off hand. I know it's a from the Sherwin Williams historic Charleston Paint chart. Yup we're so cool Uncle Sherwin gave us our own color chart.

I love playing live too, but getting a game going around here is like pulling teeth.

RH, how do you find the space to set up the model train sets you've got going? They've gotta take up a lot of floor space.
I really enjoy The Playground poker room in Montreal. Great food, hot women and some intense cash games. Feb 5 is the WPT event at the Borgata in Atlantic City. I wish I had a ticket.

I'd resolved, in my down time, to read through some of the great classics of literature that I've missed, but unfortunately I've not made good on that yet. I went from 15+ novels a month 5 years ago to only a handful a year recently. Not sure what changed.

Could your participation in social media, in the last five years, have contributed to less reading and more writing?

Intellectually, social media can be more stimulating in terms of lending oneself to engagment in real time, rather than long journeys of the imagination found in books.

What you have described is definitely the case in my personal situation. I read fewer books and spend more time staring at the monitor and typing what could be considered trite comments.

I will always believe that the brain is more stimulated when reading out of a book rather than from a device. Our imaginations are forced to fill in imagery to color what we are reading. On the internet, or a smart phone, or the kindle, I just don't think the brain stimulation is quite the same.

On the other hand, I've never had an instant response jump out of any book I was perusing. The social interaction when using social media can be addictive.

It seems like a healthy balance of discourse and reading would make for the optimal balance. I wouldn't say social media is the cause of my letting it go, moreso just many interests taking up my time. I will say with a world of increasing distractions, even compared to a few years ago, it's much harder for me to sit down and read large sections at once. I find if I'm frequently interrupted, I'm more likely to put down a book and not come back to it at all. It used to be that I could peruse a quarter of a novel in an afternoon and not be interrupted; not so anymore.

I guess when you really consider it, no matter what the distraction or excuse is, no one's to blame but myself. So I'll just have to make the effort to get better on my own. That's the way I see it, at least.

The Historic chart? Dang you are something extra special aren't you! We couldn't get one of those at my Chemical coatings store even though we were the same company! We had to have an architectural store order us one!

Over the weekend I took my intake manifold off and sent it off to have the runners ported and polished. Didn't go the chrome route because of flaking concerns. (Something about the aluminum alloy it's made of or something.)

Going to pull the cam cover and do the gasket and possibly get to the front engine oil seal. If it doesn't snow soon I'll want to drive it and won't get that done though.

Every store has them, there's the historical charleston chart which is huge, then we have a low country (that's what the charleston area is called) chart that has local colors named things like Sullivan's Island and stuff. Kinda cool and really helps for matching up colors.
