Today and tomorrow we’re putting the final touches on the display. The glass is going in, computer monitors are getting mounted, and the shelving is finally ready to go in place. It’s really starting to look good! All the educational info is at the printer and coming back to us today and tomorrow, so…
We’re in the last stages! The electronics are going in, and the educational portions are all sent to print. Video monitors are going in today and tomorrow. We’re on schedule and almost ready. In the meantime, I promised to post more train descriptions as time drew near. Here’s the third of four! The…
This is the week we’ve been waiting for! Our efforts are dedicated and focused on finishing this display before the grand opening this Saturday. In preparation for that here’s another fun little write up on the second of our railways. There are still two left, and I’ll be putting them up here on the blog throughout…
As the grand opening approaches, I’ll be releasing some of the more fun information related to the Prudent Living Train and it’s four working tracks. We’ve named each of them, and written a fictional history for each of them as a bit of fun for the display. None of it is real, of course,…
It’s been a little while since we’ve updated you on the progress for the train. Well wait not longer! It’s just about done. The tables are together and ready for testing. All that’s left is the rather lengthy electrical work, the glass enclosure, and finally the educational space/railing around the outside. We went out…
I got a call from my sister last week about a computer issue she was having that was semi-related to my last “prudent computing” post, but I thought it was different enough to merit a new post. She called me up and said she had been searching around for something for her son. He’s only…
Camping season is fast approaching. For those of us who enjoy the great outdoors, the warm weather is a sign of good things to come. Perhaps you can feel the pull of the weekend hike, and the smell of nature is a reminder that very soon you’ll be able to get out and enjoy some…
Naturally, since the spring weather has finally arrived it’s only natural to talk about that, but today I’m going to dig into my roots of computer guy work. I ran across an interesting problem on one of the office computers yesterday which had to do with a very classic problem I ran into a lot…
Now that the air is getting a bit warmer and you can be comfortable outside, there are a few maintenance activities that are a good start to the spring to make sure your out-of-doors is going to look the way you want it to. I’ve discussed some topics already, but these are a few more…
Now that the weather is getting a tiny bit warmer, the snow is melting and the sun seems to be shining a little more, it’s time to start preparing for some spring maintenance activities. It won’t be long before the grass gets green and starts to sprout up. If you mow your own grass then…

We believe very strongly that everyone needs a little break to crack a joke and laugh once in a while. Who wants to read a stuffy old blog that only has text and a fancy picture now and then, right? Well we don't. Nor do we want to write one! That's why we came up with the idea of doing at least 1 light hearted thing every week.
