The study examines environmental costs for cars' entire life cycle, including where power comes from and the environmental effects of building batteries. "Unfortunately, when a wire is connected to an electric vehicle at one end and a coal-fired power plant at the other end, the environmental consequences are worse than driving a normal gasoline-powered car." Something to consider folks.

This is a picture that your girls should never see. I witnessed one from 90-100 miles away when I was in the 5th grade. We got up early in the morning and saw the flash from north of Las Vegas. The whole sky lit up and about 20 minutes later the whole house shook. We lived in Barstow, CA. There are still 16,000+ of these damnable weapons in the hands of 9+ nations. HHD, Warren

Thank you for the compliments on the train pics. My grandfather worked on the CNJ, And as a kid I lived two blocks away from the main line. Plenty of fond memories touring the train yard and getting an up close look in the cab of one of those F7 locomotives. A twelve cylinder 1500 horsepower diesel engine is very awe-inspiring.

I just learned something from your Thanksgiving post below. I lived near St. Augustine, FL. back when I was 7 to 9 years old. I knew that it was the oldest city, but had no Idea that they celebrated a day of thanksgiving. Thanks. Glad we have more than bean soup now. :)

Hi drillintheUSA, I was going to post this on Wed. "Hi, I hope that you have a very Happy Thanksgiving. May God bestow his blessings on you and yours for this whole Holiday Season. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Thanks for being my buddy, Warren" Then I noticed that we are no longer buddies. Do you have any idea what happened? I just sent you a fresh request.

??Did you know?? that a Spaniard by the name of Pedro Menendez de Aviles celebrated a feast of Thanksgiving centered on a Mass with the Timucua Indians on September 8, 1565, in St. Augustine, Florida? They dined on bean soup 56 years before the celebration in Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts! But then... Another Catholic feast of Thanksgiving happened in Texas -- again before the Pilgrims. Don Juan de Oñate declared April 30, 1598, to be a “Day of Thanksgiving” and it was also commemorated with the holy sacrifice of the Mass. We give thanks for all the early Americans and for our ancestors in the Faith. ...and for whoever decided on turkey and gravy over bean soup! Happy Thanksgiving to all!
