I have spent 4 years creating this Web Site, (Half of which was "Slacking Off". or "Spot Time"), and beieve me it hard work straining my brain like that, LOL. I do appreciate the occasional compliments I receive. Some how it makes it seem worth it all.

Photo Of Angela Parks
Above is an example of, Multi Tasking at it's utmost extreme. Occasionally when my daughter is home for the week end, I have to relinquish my seat at the computer. Here Angela, who is in her third year at Georgia State University, is demonstrating to me, how to multi task. Some how she can, do her Psychology homework, send Instant Messages to at least three friends, eat a four course snack, listen to the Stereo, and carry on a conversation with me, about her not liking her picture taken, all at the same time. I just stand back in amazement. I tell her to not get my keyboard full of crumbs, and walk away. I sure wouldn't want to distract her. LOL

This Photo was on the home page, but has been archived here for now. It was removed because it seemed to make my page load too slow. Its a large picture. Also in this picture, is Carman B G Brown. He is the one in the back row left hand side standing behind the instructor John Clark. The Carknocker is the one kneeling down in the front row on the left right next to John Clark.

This is a picture of a Rock Quarry in Stockbridge Georgia. The picture, really does not show how big it is, untill you realize that the pieces of equipment, down in the bottom is a crane and a big earth mover. I repaired railcars there for years and had never been to actually seen the quarry. When, I finally got around to driving back in the quarry to see it, I was shocked to see such a big hole in the ground. Not many people have seen it, without an air plane. A lot of the rock removed from this quarry has been hauled out by rail, to use as road bed for the railroads.

Photo of Southbound Train

I snapped this photo of a South Bound N.S. Train, from the bridge at North Conley Ga. I was watching him by, to check on the condition of a reported shifted load of lumber. (Inspecting his train on the fly) I watched the load of lumber pass and determined it was ok to keep going and I radioed the Engineer and told him, he could High Ball it on to Macon. They speeded up and in no time was clean out of sight.
