I just got a new Aztek z-scale cleaning boxcar for my work desk layout. It actually works great. I have not run this train for maybe 2 months and without cleaning, the engine needed lots of nudges to make the whole loop. After maybe 5 loops with the cleaning car it runs great now. I think this even alleviates some of the micro-trains slinky effect.
The purchase experience is a bit odd. The only way to purchase is via phone or fax which seems inconvenience and insecure. There was also at least one bug (As in insect) in the package when I opened. Otherwise I would recommend this car.
Do people generally run their cleaning all the time or intermittently as needed?
Missing a bike or a kid trailer in south sellwood?
A bike thief grabbed a green novara corsa from my back yard last night. They hit several other houses in sellwood near the south end of the westmorland park. I know this because when startled, they left behind another bike and a bike trailer. The police said to give them to goodwill but I bet you want them back. Let me know if they are yours.
We booked tickets on the Polar Express with the +Mt Hood Railroad and then our kid started throwing up in the car. Unfortunately the tickets are not exchangeable or refundable. (It seems strange that they would rather have a kid throw up on the train, ensuring a poor experience for everyone else.) They wouldn't even exchange for cheaper times of the season when the trains were more empty.
Anyhow, we didn't want to risk it and gave the tickets away free on craigslist. I know I agreed to this policy but I really though we would find a way to make everyone happy. I will chose the coastal vintage train next time...
Advertising art director Patrick M. Horton, who lives in Brooklyn, NY, with his roommates, decided the blizzard of 2016 was the perfect opportunity to build an igloo (technically a quinzhee). After three hours of work, they posted the snow-structure on Airbnb for 200 USD with the following description:
Juniper looks doubtful about it all. It's a good thing you all were there with her, or she may have pitched a fit. The pictures are adorable - keepers for sure. I recognize Branwen's mom, and the others must be sisters. Is the baby Juniper's cousin?
I ordered chips and guacamole but instead they gave me some sort of green salad dressing. It was a pourable consistency, looking and tasting similar to ranch dressing. Was I supposed to put it on the chips? The chips were too bland to eat by themselves so I took it back.
