    Trains for Railfans

    I love live steam! My brother belongs to the Timber Heritage Association. They restore and run steam logging locomotives in Northern California.
  6. It's very common to want to knock heroes off their pedestals! I was a Zep fan back-in-the-day and they got nothing but grief from critics and hipsters. Each one of those criticisms you mentioned were leveled at our favorite band, and quite unfairly as you point out. Everyone wanted to be the one who predicted the fall of the Mighty Zeppelin. Yet many years later, the band's legacy stands firm...

    NEWLY DISCOVERED BY EV / WHATS ALL THIS ?

    I remember the days of Xeroxed fan 'zines with ads in the back for trading "P&B"! First it was tapes of bootleg records, then known generation tapes off a master, next CD's. Now with torrents and sites like Dime it's so easy to have a giant collection.

    RIP Ken Nordine. One of the last of the Beat poets, his spoken word jazz poems influenced many including Patti Smith and Tom Waits.

    What Made You Un-Happy Today ?

    The constant abuse of public school teachers! I do a job no one wants and I get nothing by crap for it, liberal Democrats blame us for the low performance of black and brown students because we're all a bunch of middle class white racists and conservative Republicans hate us for being union members and just "wanting to protect bad teachers and pedophiles". It's been 25 years of this stuff and I've had enough!

    Bier

    May I recommend Big Chicken double IPA? It's made by HenHouse Brewing Company and it has one of the best aromas I've ever smelled! Watch out though, it goes down way too easy for such a strong beer... https://untappd.com/b/henhouse-brewing-company-big-chicken-2019/3063163
