  1. What Are You Reading Right Now?

    CPTDB. Well you did say right now!
  2. What are you eating right now?

    Reminds me of once I screwed off the top of the pepper spice bottle and dumped over half of the pepper into my concoction! Most of my bottles had an inner cover with small holes, this one was a flip-top! No amount of " chemistry principles" could cure that mess. Put the results in a colander and managed to rinse most of the pepper off; still, it was a "bit" spicy but somewhat edible.
  3. Best sounding buses

    1948 ACF Brill with its underfloor Hall-Scott gasoline engine backfiring going up Loch Raven Blvd. One blew off its muffler almost in front of my house; it stayed in the grass median for quite a while.

  9. Trolleys

    The subject line said trolleys, so I thought that it was about trolleys:
  10. What are you eating right now?

    Just finished a "Monsterburger" from The Bantam Chef, a local greasy spoon. I liked it enough that I might get another if I am ever on that side of town.

  15. Your Transit Memorabilia

    My latest acquisition from an ex-DC Transit/WAMATA GM fishbowl #6607: There is a sad tale to go along with this plate. The person who owned 6607 decided to get rid of it and could find no takers so he let a local trolley museum get anything off of the bus that they might want. A friend was involved and I asked if he could get me the plate and side sign. All that he was able to get was the plate. The sad part is that very shortly afterwards, the bus was scrapped just after Thanksgiving Day. Here are some photos after the parting-out:
