      It seems this "Thread", might not be a clear picture of the forum, that Jean had in mind when she got talked into being a co-sponsor.

        To almost immediately allow barnyard animules to give the impression that they have found a home, might keep them away from continuously interfering in the rest of the web page, which is supposedly devoted to Large Scale Model Railroading.

           This might just be a brilliant way of cleaning up an otherwise fine and possibly, intelligent web page...!!

        Or... quite possibly, it was Jean's idea right from the start.

       It might be rather polite to invite Jean to give her side of the agreement, and explain why she signed the cheque...and her hopes for the future of this new forum.

            BTW; as an admirer of "The Life of Brian" (The film) I suggest that it might be worthwhile to open a link to the full film, for those with constricting religions, that would not allow a screening.

      The "Life Of Brian" is supposedly devoted to Large Scale Model Railroading in what way?

    • Since I check my blood sugar four times a day I figure my numbers tell me I am still moving! And I know I'm ok when I feel the insulin shot!

    • No Sean; none of us seem dead at present, but 15 minutes from now or even less could be a different story. It seems the scavengers of dead bodies can arrive at any time.

         ...so the job of the living, is to continuously prove that we are alive, and operating our railroads.

       

            As a side note, towards "Forum Sponsorship";  where can a person find factual information, on this sponsorship program ?

       At one time several moons ago; I did drop the management a note on the subject, but I never received a reply, and he has never visited our railroad since.

        I guess there must be a secret handshake, wink of the eye, or political maneuver required for such actions...perhaps pretending to be a barnyard fowl is one of the requirements.!!!!

      I will not answer your “just you” (even though it appears to be) assertion, as I now have finally figured out your meaning!   Jean and I are the new sponsors of this very forum.  Just trying to drum up some posts, I guess

      Ah! I see the light!!

      (Now that I turned off my adblocker...)

      Sorry about that Bruce. And good for you and Jean, thanks!!

      So, it's time to bring this one back to the top - especially since it has a great new sponsor!

      Bring out your questions!

       

      Still waiting patiently for Bruce to trot out his antecedent(s) for that sentence, thereby explaining what he believes to have a new sponsor...

       

      Is it just me?

      OK, don't answer that...

      Roger all that, Bruce.

      And as long as no dead people were harmed in filming your intro, I'm on board with wherever you want to take this conversation.

      Which was...?

       The dead WERE harmed...but nobody died needlessly...

      Bruce,

      So dead people now have a new sponsor?

      And how did you determine that?

      Confused but curious...

      ===>Cliffy

      Well, sorry you're confused, but you ARE Cliffy!  

      And no dead are being sponsored (do THEY really NEED a sponsor????)...it was just when I wrote the phrase to "Bring out your questions" I was reminded of this old Monty Python skit.   Wow.   I guess I'm just very strange... I was just celebrating that I had written a check to sponsor this forum...(all the good ones were already taken?)   Well, I figure I've saved enough money to live a few more weeks in retirement...so why not live it up and sponsor a forum?

    • It has been over two years since "RailOps" was mentioned on these pages.

          To bring everyone up-to-date;

                                      ...we are still successfully using the program on the IPP&W, without problems; operating EVERY Saturday, weather permitting.
