  Fall 2022 is Officially Here! It is the officially Fall 2022. Come on cooler weather! WOW! It’s been a long, hot summer for us in Georgia with high humidity, too!   With the exception of last week and now there is a gaggle of hurricanes in the Gulf and Atlantic. YIKES!   Once again this time last year we had two High School Seniors in our "Internship a/k/a as a part-time jobs. And they did a great job, too. One year later we are extremely fortunate to have a very talented single senior High School (focused in the area of Art) who will evaluate this year’s Junior Art Students to recruit and train the student  to take the reigns as this Senior prepares for moving on to college next year. This takes...

morning low temperatures in the upper 50s & lower 60 degree temperatures for the past week!  And, Pumpkin Spice Latte are back at Starbucks! YAY!  That said, it’s been a very busy Summer which is probably a result of a lot of folks either still out of work or now working from home. I find it very relaxing to construct & weather models which could be what some folks are doing during their work-from-home Break Time! We've still got a bunch of...

  Anyone Ready for Fall Weather? We’ve got a lot of stuff going as we try to catch up on orders & casting.

These signs went dark when Debbie closed her model railroad store in 1993 and we moved the entire contents of the model railroad store (and these signs) to Eastern Tennessee. We had planned on displaying the signs on the side of a barn one day. But it's been 29 years now and we’ve agrees it's time to share these magnificent signs with ...

All this is way more than a single student can manage each week so we’ll be add another student intern in a month of two. Finally, the *New* Doctor Ben’s Website is ...
