Those who make the most "noise" tend to be the ones that are listened too. Complain and complain and then when you are done complain some more. This should get the rental company to understand your issue with the unwelcomed neighbor.



Now it is time for a yolk or two because stress causes me not to eat to my own detriment. (I'm a somewhat anorexic eating disorder type) Bread, burgers and flightless bird organic embryos. Poached embryos, yum!


Eat away, my friend. Sometimes food makes for the best medicine.

Light, hopefully he will indeed move to another apartment and then those people will know what you meant and they will be sorry they didn't listen. LOL

Waves at Gordi and Blue! Trying to catch up on facebook and in Skype and going to youtube. Good Lord, I'm all over the place.

Mark's wants to order out Chinese which we both love, but shouldn't be eating. Groceries are extremely challenging with his combo of health problems and I need to do better as well but... After our Chinese food tonight. lol

I hope so too my dear. I can hear the other residents in a room now all talking with each other discussing what happened tonight. If I'm honest, (the guy in question joined the conversation in question without being asked, which is ok)...I listened to his lies and looked at his lying smile while he was lying to all the people and stared at his nose. I had one thought. I could break that nose of his with one strike. Maybe two. And I'm the bad guy... grrrr! Enough is more than enough and I hate liars. That ain't gonna happen though cos otherwise I'll be gone and not him. Keep calm and curry on.

I hate it when other people just don't get or accept it when they can hear it but the rest here is young and unexposed to the real problem. Time will tell. Otherwise I will ask the rental company to put me somewhere else. It's a #hole here.
Rotterdam is not the nicest place to be when you're at the bottom of the ladder. C'est la vie.

Here's hoping the guy gets moved. If not, try to get out. I hate seeing you in an unhappy situation. Glad you can control your anger. That would only cause more problems, but you already know that. Try listening to some music with headphones and tune the guy out that way. I wish you all the best my friend!

My suggestion to “get to know” each other wasn’t meant to ruffle any feathers, I apologize and withdraw it.

No my apologies. My response to your suggestion was not a rejection, just a response.
My experience is that it takes time and patience to truely know a person any being for that matter.
And I wouldn't know where to begin, should I mention life changing mind altering experiences, should I describe what I find important, should I describe my life in a linear perspective?
There is so much in one life, at least in mine that all adds up to the person I am and who I am becoming.

I become shy, because I wouldn't know where to begin what to put in between and where to end.
Where I am now does not reflect the rainbow I feel my life has been, but a mere cloud passing over. Well perhaps more of a glacial occurence.

Hello Wis and Sheye! Sorry I missed you guys earlier.

Kind of quiet in here tonight. Watching things on youtube. I'll be checking in though.

Hi ho guys and gals!!!

Been a while since I've been on here that it would appear to be so. Had very sporadic internet access for the last few months up until the day before yesterday or so. I had stayed at my brother's place for almost the past two weeks. I was up there for nine days and eight nights that started on Tuesday of last week until last night. Had a blast while I was up there as I got to mess around on Xbox Live and stream the bejeezus out of Netflix. It's very quiet where he lives at just north of Charleston although he is on the flight path to Yeager Airport.

Found two of my brother's cats sleeping in the lazy boy the other night. Black Baby has one of his paws wrapped around Munchkin.


I think I made Lorri hungry showing her this on Messenger. If you guys every find yourself traveling through West Virginia, southern Ohio, and eastern Kentucky. I suggest stopping by any Tudor's Biscuit World for breakfast or lunch. I suggest that you get the "Big Tater" with cheese and bacon. You will NOT be disappointed!!


I've somehow and in someway still managed to find ways to get my videos up on Youtube. Still found ways of getting them up on Youtube even without internet at the house for the past three and a half months. The first video that I somehow managed to get uploaded back in January was an empty grain train thundering through town in a snow squall that turned into a whiteout. In this video, we have CSX 8096 leading empty grain train V750 back west towards a crew change at Russell, Kentucky.


Went out one Monday a couple of weeks ago not really thinking that I was going to really get anything. Good thing that I usually bring my video camera and scanner with me when I go out walking. Here we see eastbound mixed freight, a time freight now I might add, Q302 rolling east for Clifton Forge and Richmond, Virginia with a hefty manifest in tow behind the lead motors. It has gotten to the point here now that an additional freight between Russell, Kentucky and Richmond, Virginia so that Q302 and its counterpart don't have to stop at any of the yards along the way to drop off and pick freight cars up.


If I remember correctly, I believe I shot this one around the first week of February. This one is of eastbound ethanol train K478 heading toward Portsmouth, Virginia with a a former Santa Fe "Superfleet" General Electric CW44-9 leading the way in the Santa Fe's classic red and silver "Warbonnet" scheme. Funny thing is that I saw this very same locomotive come back leading an empty grain train about a week later.


Now this one coming up is one that I actually shot last week the day before I went out to my brother's place. Here we see the new addition to the rail traffic on my CSX line. The train that took over the switching duties for Q302 between Russell, Kentucky and Richmond, Virginia. The H750 is seen high balling east towards a crew change at Hinton, West Virginia behind a trio of veteran four axle ElectroMotive products. You'll even see me make an appearance in this one!


While I was at my brother's place this past week. I had the idea to finally go about and put together my favorite catches from the past year. I've already got the second part made but I'm going to wait a few days before I publicize that particular video. I may put up a third video as well but I have decided on that yet. I've also got a few more to publish along with that one that I've already put up unlisted on Youtube.

So nice to see that you have found your way back to the shed's engine house. I thought you may have been derailed or something. Now excuse me, I have more train videos to watch.

Good to see ya dude, love the cuddle cats. Makes me all warm and gooey on the inside. Love the train vids too. American trains are pretty impressive. We have freight trains in Europe but nothing comparable to the US. I think it was the US (possibly Australia?) but I once saw a vid of a train that is a mile long. It's so long and so heavy that there are 3 different pulling machines (excuse my lack of technical train words). One at the front, one in the middle and one at the back. The vid explained that all 3 locomotives (?) had to travel at different speeds at times due to the length of the train and the small amount of slack involved in such a long thing. Mindblowing to say the least to simple folk such as me.

A train driver was one of the few things that seemed like a good job to do. Then I read about the amount of skill, knowledge and experience involved in such a job. Dang. In the Netherlands, train drivers may only drive (yeah, prolly the wrong word!) on trajectories they know by heart. Kinda funky but I guess knowing where you come from and are going to can add to the safety of the train and its contents.

LOL! Good find! (Yes, I googled it to make sure it was real ROFL)

A Shenanigator is the male version. Apparently there is a also a Shenanigatrix, the female version.

No shenanigans now!

Things came to a head last night. There was a huge discussion here in the building and I said some things I shouldn't have said and apparently I threatened the guy. I (conveniently?) forgot that part when I awoke. Anger is a gift and a curse. I don't remember saying it but apparently I did. Not with violence, but still a threat. 5 witnesses heard it and the rental company advised my neighbour to inform the police and then I would be homeless. He came to me this morning and told me that. Honesty is a wonderful thing. I have no defence. I was angry, heat of the moment yada yada. I already mailed the rental company telling them the same story, a story I am not proud of.

My neighbour told me that he didn't want to do that because he didn't want to see me become homeless. I almost cried. Almost. We shook hands, had a short talk and agreed to talk later. By the hair on my chinny chin chin...
