A Message of Remembrance

I listened as they called my President a Muslim.
I listened as they called him and his family a pack of monkeys.
I listened as they said he wasn’t born here.
I watched as they blocked every single path to progress that they could.
I saw the pictures of him as Hitler.
I watched them shut down the government and hurt the entire nation twice.
I watched them turn their backs on every opportunity to open worthwhile dialog.
I watched them say that they would not even listen to any choice for Supreme Court no matter who the nominee was.
I listened as they openly said that they will oppose him at every turn.
I watched as they did just that.
I listened.
I watched.
I paid attention.
Now, I’m being called on to be tolerant.
To move forward.
To denounce protesters.
To “Get over it.”
To accept this…
I will not.
I will do my part to make sure this great American mistake becomes the embarrassing footnote of our history that it deserves to be.
I will do this as quickly as possible every chance I get.
I will do my part to limit the damage that this man can do to my country.
I will watch his every move and point out every single mistake and misdeed in a loud and proud voice.
I will let you know in a loud voice every time this man backs away from a promise he made to them.
Them. The people who voted for him.
The ones who sold their souls and prayed for him to win.
I will do this so that they never forget.
And they will hear me.
They will see it in my eyes when I look at them.
They will hear it in my voice when I talk to them.
They will know that I know who they are.
They will know that I know what they are.
Do not call for my tolerance. I’ve tolerated all I can.
Now it’s their turn to tolerate ridicule.
Be aware, make no mistake about it, every single thing that goes wrong in our country from this day
forward is now Trump’s fault just as much as they thought it was Obama’s.
I find it unreasonable for them to expect from me what they were entirely unwilling to give.”

Lewis Hamilton – ‘I’ll be holding nothing back out there’

Lewis Hamilton: ‘I’ll be holding nothing back out there’playAd (0:31)Loaded: 0%Progress: 0% 18 Oct, 2016Laurence EdmondsonF1 EditorFacebookTwitterPinterestEmailprintcommentLewis Hamilton has vowed to “hold nothing back” as he attempts to turn the title battle back in his favour at the final four races of the season.Nico Rosberg currently leads Hamilton by 33 points in the drivers’ standings and can finish second to Hamilton at all of the remaining races and still secure the title. Despite the odds being stacked against him, Hamilton says he will not give up until the title is mathematically lost.”Seeing all the guys and girls at the factory last week really brought home just what we’ve achieved together this year,” Hamilton said after visiting Mercedes’ Brackley and Brixworth bases to celebrate the constructors’ championship. “They’ve worked so damned hard to give Nico and me this great car and you can see how much it means to them.”We’ve got four races left to make the most of it and that’s exactly what I plan to do. It’s just about hitting every race weekend as hard as I can, going all out for every win and seeing what happens from there. I’ll be holding nothing back out there.”Hamilton said he is looking forward to returning to the U.S. Grand Prix in Austin where he sealed last year’s drivers’ championship.”First up, we’re back in the States — which is like a second home race for me these days. I love the country, the culture, the people and the track, so I can’t wait to get started. I’ve got some great memories from Austin, with three wins from four races and, of course, the title win last year. That was one of the highlights of my career, no doubt. It’s almost like the American fans have adopted me as their own, so I’ll try to channel all of that positive energy into this weekend.”

N Scale Layout Change

I decided I wanted more space for the bulk materials transfer facility. So I took the building from the facility and made it the office for the chemical plant. I then added a new track to the transfer facility and lengthened the three yard tracks in they yard be relocating the yard office to the other side of the mainline. Ok, on to the pics.

Lavazza Qualita Oro Espresso


I’m trying a new Italian coffee. Qualita Oro Espresso is the signature Lavazza blend of 100% Arabica, combining prestigious coffees from Central America with some African varieties chosen for their intense aroma. Qualita Oro has a cup character that is mellow with a pleasant floral hint, typical of the Central American coffee origins. I have made with my espresso machine for coffee Americana and I have used my Chemex. Both have produced a very smooth and tasty cup of joe.

First Round Of Mods On My E92 M3

Here are pics after my first round of mods. I have installed color matched front bumper reflectors, black front grill, carbon fiber side marker/turn signals with smoked led lighting, black rear M3 badging and HRE FF01 wheels. The wheels are 19″x9″ on the front and 19″x10.5″ on the rear. I would like to thank my boy Peter, owner of Wheel Experts, for such a nice set of wheels. Ok, on to the pics.
