Back by popular demand, the Coffee Shop is now open. Stop by, have a cup, visit old friends and meet new folks. Just like old times...
JeffShultz said:Yeah, those 800 page topics can be a bit intimidating. If this coffee shop (I didn't visit the MR one either) is like others out there, it's basically a place to say good morning and share a bit of what's up in your life, modeling or otherwise.
And now that I've had my caffeine hit, the weather out here in the Pacific Northwest is, in a word, wet. Caused a lot of accidents around Portland last week as a years worth of road oils suddenly caused roads to slicken up. And I'm likely to be busy on the phone today doing tech support calls for people who's internet connections have turned to slime due to water in the phone lines...
I'm at about the 60% point on the mudding and taping of my new railroad room (formerly known as the garage).
I hear ya! I can make the MR grass look golf course perfect, and I save a ton on gas and my back since it stays nice and trim unlike the furture garden railroad layout.grande man said:Unfortunately, I'm only qualified to talk about modeled sod.
Two things. I really felt good about getting my water filter moved. IT has been a bottle neck for getting things done. You know how you have a list of small things you can do to make your railroad move forward. Well this was kind of a stumbing block for the proccess.
Second thing. I love the fact that they have classifieds on this board. All the cowboy sites have them and I had gotten used to the idea of swapping with people who both could benefit. I may grow to like this place a lot.
Chip, I don't recall what type of paint it was, but the girlfriend had leaky walls from ground moisture, once she covered them with this stuff we haven't had a problem since, I will have to try and remember to ask her what she used. It's been holding up for 2 years now. Not sure if you guys have them out your way, but Menards has sometype of wall sealer that may work. If I remember right, it goes on pretty thick. We have old clay bricks like what would be on the outside of a house, and not cinder/concrete type. I think she said this place was like 150 years old, we even have those 10 foor ceilingsSpaceMouse said:Anyone know how to seal cynderblocks from moisture so they can be painted?
I'm trying to quit. In fact, I plan to quit cold turkey next week after Photo Fun. I'm not really adicted you know.jdavid93225 said:Since Chip has over 2900 posts on that other forum since the beginning of the year, I'm going to guess he'll reach 3000 here by the end of July 2006.
Glad to see you all here!

BTW. I tracked a big cat outside Frazier Park for about 3 miles. Never saw him. He was probably watching me and giggling.
