Forgot this was on! Thanks to you, Dawg, I got to it just to hear the "more". ;) However, I'll probably leave it while Madame Secretary is on.

Just DVR'ed it - thanks for the reminder, Dawg! Another 2 1/2 hours before it's on here, so I've got time to settle in to the recliner with a snack.

I enjoy it because it is a much more intimate setting that the regular cars on the train. You really have time to chat with the passengers.
How fun, SC! I'm sure your passengers and the kids really enjoyed it. I know my grandsons would.

Souschef, it's so much fun reading about all of the fun you have working the railroad. I bet all of those families enjoy your help.

*********************

With the Iowa caucuses Monday, "Silly Season" has officially started. Finally. After all, I bet most of us will admit that the crushing amount of political ads have been enough already. I know we've been inundated here in MA with the NH primary a week away not. Well, I do enjoy the polling days, so I've been checking the Washington Post's updates on the donkey side. With under 1% left to report, it's a mere 2 vote difference.

Now if we could just adopt the Canadian way and limit the campaigning and ads to only 6-7 weeks, I would be so grateful!

I am watching of the re-play of the Republican debate! And I will get of the Democrat debate also!

This is so exciting! As I am an American, I must vote!

Love,
~Cat

Hi, Cat. Are you planning to move back to the United States? Typically, a requirement to be eligible to vote is that a person be a resident of the city or county where they are registered for at least 30 days before the election.

I envy you and Kayelle.
You have a lot of fun together.

When I was a kid we would hear the trains whistle long before it reached our house. It was a mad dash with us kids who was going to get out the front door first to see it. It was always fun to see the caboose. We'd wave at the conductor. I think he remembered we'd all be around just to wave a hello to him. He always smiled and waved back.

I love the stories he comes home with from the train caboose. They always stop at a place called "The Loose Caboose" where they sell produce from the Heritage Valley here, along with many hand made goodies. They had fresh field artichokes this time, and the SC was able to tell the guests how to prepare them like we do at home. Those city folks were happy to try something they never have.

I loved the TV series Northern Exposure and have just found that someone has put many of the episodes on youtube!

So I am somewhat overdosing on episodes of that all day today!

(I didn't know it won so many awards!) Deservedly so.

That's one of my most favorite series of all time, creative. I was disappointed when it ended. I almost ordered the entire series from Amazon, until I discovered recently that so many of them are on youtube. I've been re-watching them, too.
