Added some news feeds

I added some Transportation news feeds today. Sadly, not much deals with motor coach. Of course NTSB had news feeds but they were unreadable…

Model Railroad Layout Garland Texas

     Maureen and I went to a model railroad layout in Garland Texas at the Public Library yesterday. The exhibit was put on by the Spring Creek Model Railroad Club. They were in the process of getting everything setup, but it was a very nice layout. They had some HO and N gauge trains there.Spring Creek Model Railroad Club

     We met a couple of church friends, Jim and Carol Cahill at the Library and shared some good fellowship.

     The club was using individual controllers for each train, something I had not seen used before, so each train had its own engineer. The trains also had sound effects coming out of each engine as well.

     Overalls it was a ver nice layout. Unfortunately I am still getting used to the new camera we have and half the pictures I thought I had taken were never taken. Only six came out, and can be found in the Gallery.

Workout

     I have been getting back into shape after the nasty bout I had with a near fatal infection in January! I had a workout this morning (back up to level 5 on the Lifecycle), free weights and sit-ups.

     I decided to get really adventurous and try and start the lawn mower (which hasn’t been started in four years). After about thirty tries the lawnmower finally started up (and kept running – it had started about 10 times before that – ran about 5-10 seconds and then quit). Talk about a workout!

      Anyway – to bring everybody up to date – I left Greyhound right before Thanksgiving. Had a terrible infection, which went into my blood on early January – was in ICU for a night and the hospital for four days. Had major problems with my heart rate all over the place. That’s seems to have stabilized.

     Seeing a doctor because of the UTI that started the infection, that is stable.

     Still seeing an allergist because of extreme allergies, after over 2 ½ years of allergy shots they don’t seem to be working. Still have sinus headaches (although have not had a sinus infection since I had the sinus surgery last year).

     Seeing a Neurologist for the sinus headaches. Had a brain scan and a sleep study a couple of weeks ago (still waiting for the results – trying to provide proof to my wife that I actually have a brain). Definitely was avoiding a sleep study until I was out of Greyhound, particularly on the extra board with the strange hours I had to work.  I finally called yesterday to try and get them moving on the results.

      Okay – everyone is up to date now…. I pray you all have a blessed Easter Holiday

Dispatch did call me in. Told him I resigned two weeks ago, off board permanently I hope.

Greyhound in their infinite wisdom has me back on the board two weeks after I have resigned. This could be some fun?

Officially out of Greyhound. I am no longer going to be updating the Greyhound part of this website, and I will not be posting any more on the Bob and Lorenzo Facebook page. Have to figure out how I am going to be handling the ministry posts going forward in relation to this website.

Two days left until I officially leave Greyhound. Took training last Tuesday, supervisor never booked me back on after training so I have been "lost in space (Greyhound black hole)" since Tuesday, never called in to get put back on the board… enjoying my time off! Looking forward to Wednesday!
