Question by zeebya: Does anybody else out there enjoy laying under the Christmas Tree?
I started doing this as a kid, and I still love it. I sometimes, when I’m relaxing or have nothing else to do, will lay on the floor under the Christmas tree, with my head right next to the trunk. It’s almost magical, as you look up into the forest above you, the shining lights and pretty ornaments. It’s almost like being in the Ewok village, or a miniature person on a model railroad. Your consciousness just seems to explore upward into the tree, letting your spirit, for a short time, revisit that feeling of security and warmth that was a constant when I was a kid.
I find it quite relaxing. How ’bout you?
Yeah, I have cats, too. But they’re pretty relaxed, and I often tie a couple of Christmas ribbons and bows to their collar as if they’re a gift, so that when they’re under the tree we can joke that they’re “the presents.”
My Web Site: modelrr.oakviewresources.com Part 3: In this video I work on making some more trees. The videos are edited in time lapse mode with music in the background. Music Notes: The music on this video was recorded using Sonar Home Studio Ver 6.0. The drums and keyboards were played on an M-Audio Keystation 61 ES and/or sequenced in the MIDI Editor. The bass used is an SX Jazz clone with Dimarzio J pickups. The acoustic guitar is and Alvarez AD 70.
Question by Steven D: How many plan to run trains around the Christmas tree this year?
Trains have been running under trees for most of a century now. It’s time to dig them out and do a little service work. Clean the tracks with a green scrubby and oil the motor and gears. Check the wires from the transformer to the track, if it’s missing any insulation replace it. Model Railroading the hobby that lasts a life time.
