  1. Just discovered there's a Glamrock genre on Spotify. Where's my Lionel Blairs. 

    1. truffy


      For the love of the children :o

  2. Anything between 4" and 100" of snow forecast for our region over the next week depending on elevation.

    Prepare for traffic problems they said. (Interstate 5 was a bumper-to-bumper nightmare in this afternoon's deluge) So looks like we're just gonna have to "Hunker down" for Christmas.


    1. Hroth


      Just the usual cold thin Christmas drizzle predicted for here. Keep warm, keep safe and have a good'un!

      It's the same sort of predictions for here...some to much snow, depending on elevation.  It rained a lot this AM (~0500), and there were chunks in the rain at 125m/400' ASL

      We had 4-5 inches last week and it was chucking it down during the night. There's plenty of snow above 3000' and I read somewhere Lassen National Park is expecting over 8 feet. We need some snow pack, bring it on I say!

  3. Einstein's big bang theory is in question now that we know that time doesn't exist and it's just in our heads.

    So is there any rush with getting the layout finished or not....

      The only thing in my wife’s head is fluff. Which might explicitly her problems with time. 

    4. Hroth


      Its bad enough trying to remember to rewind my watch....


  4. Having had a couple of real Belgian ales my head is full of questions. 

    Like why are there still people driving about with huge Trump flags on their jeeps???

    Why do I have all the symptoms of long Covid but haven't actually had it??? 

    ...and why do we have 2 gay cats.

    1. Mallard60022


      Trump Flags on Jeeps = losers and or target Practice objects.

      Symptoms of Long C and you probably have had it or another Virus and not actually realised; how do I know this?

      Gay cats are the real thing now. Purrfect companions as always loving and kind. Just let them have

      PInk Leather Collars and don't tell them about Dusty Hill RIP.

      Take care.

      Or, we could not bother extending stereotypes which are ridiculous when applied to humans to other species as well. Everyone, whether human, feline, canine, bovine, or something else entirely, deserves better than that.

  5. I've always considered myself a bit of a hard nut but software really does my head in sometimes.

  6. Having looked at eBay this evening I estimate that there must be over 10,000 quids worth of empty boxes in my attic!

    1. Hroth


      But they've got to be the right empty box!


      ( "[email protected]@K! RARE!!!" for example...)


    2. truffy


      It's not the rarity of the box that fetches the high bids, but the rarity of the air within.

  7. Before indulging anymore in my wife's homemade rum truffles I'd better hit the sack before I explode!

    1. Hroth


      Surely the quantity of rum in a quantity of homemade rum truffles should induce drowsiness?






      After agumentativeness and singing?

  8. The carpet monster has officially driven me insane with its insatiable appetite for 4mm scale buffer shanks.

    Luckily I have a supply of spare Cambrian coupling mounts so will procure another bottled ale from the cooler and slice a pair of replacements.

      You should try Lego bricks hidden in carpet!

    3. Sasquatch


      I did get rid of the carpet and put in nice hickory flooring. SWMBO went and brought a rug (you know what women are like for soft furnishings) Needless to say, the carpet monster is getting it's own back!

      That was easy! Now I can catch up on a few threads in peace.

    3. Sasquatch


      What is truly bothering me is that the content of  pop up ads on here correspond with that which my wife browses on her phone.  

    4. Hroth


      I had adblock whitelist RMweb to support the site, I've turned the whitelisting off to cut down the irritation.

  10. .. is postponing morning routines for another 24 hours during the bog roll crisis.  

  11. Keep calm and do some modeling.


  13. Why the hell are there ads for hideous women's ankle boots on my threads! Mrs. S is getting a grass gun for Christmas, she wouldn't be seen dead in those ugly monstrosities!


    1. Hroth


      The ad server is getting loopy again.  "Mining Intelligence", gym equipment and "tinfoil hat" wallets are what I'm getting at present...

    2. St Enodoc

      St Enodoc

      Ankle boots for hideous women or hideous boots for women's ankles... or both?

    3. Adrian Stevenson

      Adrian Stevenson

      I am getting ads for "fancy dress" outfits. Mainly girly stockings and suspenders... I wouldn't mind but they don't stock my size....

  14. has been spotted again, this time making off with a gallon of salty caramel peanut ice cream and a rather large spoon.

  15. has been a complete anorak this evening. I cooked myself a full roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings and binge watched "The Richard J. Willis Collection" on prime. Nice!

  16. That's blown it. Mrs. S. has discovered there's a mini fridge in the garage!

      I did tell her about the super glue to which she replied I didn't know IPA was a glue and proceeded to help herself.

      For a number of years, I worked in a university, as an instrumentation technician.


      A major part of this job was fitting, wiring and setting up strain gauges. (I enjoyed the wiring bit ...) It was accepted practice to keep superglue in a fridge - as the bond strength was a critical aspect of gauging.


      As for "IPA", I was led to believe this was short for "Iso Propyl Alcohol" - which definitely wasn't kept in the fridge - and I doubt if anybody would have been stupid enough to want to drink the stuff.


      Of course, I could be talking about the wrong sort of IPA ... .

    4. Hroth


      This is where indiscriminate use of acronyms can cause problems....

  17. ...has a theory  that the universe will one day come down to two black holes which will collide in a final big bang. Question is will the layout get finished first?

  18. has today learned that the expensive sat cam equipment I've been triggering located two miles up the hill, is there to capture images of wolves not Sasquatch afterall.

  19. SOS...___...

      Thanks for the advise Andy. Love the new set up BTW.

  20. has finally locked himself out of the garage. There he was all set up to start ballasting Queensbury. Instead I had to take the window out and crawl accross the layout to retrieve the keys.

    1. manna


      Wondered what you'd been up to !!

  21. has just been told to "Fix some eggs". looks like it's gonna be one hell of a day.

      All the Kings horses and all the Kings men couldn't manage that job.

      When will these comments stop? Some of them are “ cracking” well done all.

  22. has just realized we named our dog after a familiar locomotive wheel arrangement?

  23. Our new cat Scatoosh has just acquired a taste for poinsettia.

    1. NHY 581

      NHY 581

      A very distinctive Italian soft cheese. The cat has good taste.

      Is your cat now dead? If not, I'd advise a trip to the vet ASAP as Poinsettia is highly toxic to cats..



    3. Sasquatch


      Oops. Thankfully he's fine!

  24. Beware when buying chinese electrical products that 1 could be 5. 2 might be 7, 8 is where 4 should be and 12 is 3 and 6 could be 11 or 12.

    1. locoholic


      Do the Chinese make replica Enigma machines?

    2. Hroth


      Or nothing you get is what you expect it to be!
