      Rogering all that Bruce just said! And for those of us using LSC for photo storage, transferring to the hard drive, opening each one up to make it 1200 max pixel width, uploading it to my freight shed, and making the post to put it in. Which is GREAT, reliable, FREE, and shared between all us here; just takes a little time. 

       

      Speaking of free... I need to make my annual donation to LSC... Still haven't figured out how to make it automatic; Greg, you did, right?

      Figured it out: just click on Home (in the main ribbon), look beneath your mug on the left, and click HELP SUPPORT LSC. I clicked on Paypal, put in an amount, checked the recurring every month box, and authorized. Sweet!

       

      You can do however you want. IMO, LSC is of far greater utility than some magazines, and Bob does all this as a hobby -- and at his expense. We should all chip in a little, and now it's easy!

      For those interested I plan on getting to the diner between 7:30 and 8:00 AM for breakfast on Friday. Anyone wanting to meet up feel welcome. Ken will I see you there?

      Maybe Cliff will stop by

      Which diner??

      Sounds like a plan. But I guess this isn't gonna be a sleep-in weekend morning tomorrow, haha!

      If it works out, this might become the "Drag and Bacon." Different thing being dragged though.

      Word has it that the show is cancelled due to the MD state of emergency. No more than 250 people at an event.

      Joe, can you be more definitive?

       

      Per ECLSTS web site just now,

       

      "We have received many calls and emails about the status of the show regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus). The 2020 East Coast Large Scale Train Show will continue as planned.

      And I can't find anything related to the 250 max gathering you mention.

      Last post on their facebook site is 2 hours ago and they say they are going ahead, and the web site says so too...

       

      Where is "word has it"? (Not doubting you Joe, just wondering where that info is)

      I'm at the fairgrounds now. One of the employees came aroud saying that due to the state of emergency, no more than 250 could be at an event. There is a possibility that 250 people could be allowed in, but Star Hobby is waiting for a call from the state.

      Thanks David, that's some hard evidence.

       

      Too late to cancel my hotel though, so I'm going anyway. I'll post pics of the barbed wire around the MD state fair grounds... or at least the signs stating things like, "For your safety, we now need to shoot you."

       

      Sorry, that's in bad taste...

      I was just speaking with one of the exhibitors, and the word is that we will know for sure by 9 am Friday. So, we won't know till the last minute.

       

      Oh well, it was a nice drive out this way either way.

      Where did you see them, Bruce....?   PLEASE share them with us....

        Fred

      Greg has it right.   Facebook it is...

      For those of us that take pictures, it's pretty easy to take pictures with your phone and Facebook is about the easiest way to post those; it really is easy.   For those of us that still like to use a camera, it's rather difficult to post pictures until you're back at home with your computer.   Then, it's a multi-step procedure...and a memory test for what you were thinking when you took THAT picture -and WHO are THOSE people????

       

       

       

       

      So says the man that is taking pictures with his phone?  I still use the camera myself.
