    You been eating those jelly beans again! I told you they are no good with corn bread! All you need is a spoon full of Grandma's Mountain Dew Spring Tonic to get you up and hopping around again. Then you can go get us some photos. Scan your photos down to around 50 kb, and they will post well too. Look on the WP Forum. :D

    Well Dick, hope you and the Missus are feeling better. You can always trust Watash's sage advice.

    The only thing left, is Aunt Leatha's Hot Onion Poultus, wrapped up in a pair of her old bloomers, and a healthy swig of Castor oil, with a Cod Liver Oil chaser! Next morning if you are still green under the blood shot eyes, you'll get a dry spoon full of Black Draught powders, and a shot of Black Strap Molassas. Then they throw you out in the yard, and leave a towel, roll of toilet paper, and a glass of water on the porch, (after they lock the screen door.) You'll be fine in a couple of days or so. :D

    The way it sounds someone here is diabetic? No jelly beans which are sweets and diabetics aren't allowed to eat sweets period unless that person has low blood suger. I know this from the fact that yes i'm 22 and i've had diabetes now 19 years!!!! I got it at the age of 3 and boy I tell ya I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy!!!!!! But being i've had it so long I have to say its not as bad as some would think I have it under control and eat regularly and so on and its been doing good. Anyway the docs say i'll live till I die :D but I haven't felt better. Since i'm out of school and not sitting all day and not doing anything but pushing a pensil and eatting the school lunches my health got alot better since then. :D This may be a surprise to everyone but its true and I just wish it would let me go where I wouldn't have to worry about it for one day just to be different but its life to me so...... :D

    Telegrapher,
    That makes 2 of us then I am too. But i'm on insulin shots, once a day. But I can eat some candy once in awhile, but i'm not a person for alot of sweets. I guess that might be from the fact of not getting any as a kid so... But its under control and doing good. Anyway we do have a small advantage over others in away, I keep my insulin bottles, take off the sticker on them that says what it is and load them with water for train car loads on flat cars, the water gives me weight and after I get the top where the syringe would enter the bottle, I cover it with a small piece of plastic and then coat it with epoxy to keep it from leaking. Once thats all done I paint the bottle and so on to look like a tank. Then they get straped on my flat cars as loads, held down with scale chain and it gives the car a look and some personality. So I guess you could say I recycle them :D I also make Natral gas tanks out of them for big buildings where they would set on end and it does a nice job. I should figure out a way to make a manufacturing company to make tanks and they would be good detail for that! With a industrial spur going to it so the flat cars have a destiny. :D That might be a plan for future exspnsion area on my layout!!!! HE! :D And I said it wouldn't get any bigger........ Boy that was a mistake to say!!!

    I also use my syringes as well for aplying liquid glue and also I keep one for a specific job in decaling, I use it to aply water to the surface where the decal is to be so I can possition it correctly and not have to hurry because I used the decal set. Then blot it with a piece of paper towel to dry up the water once its where it needs to be and then add the decal set to the decal. Makes a lot of difference and eases the procedure of decaling. :D
