I can only guess a hiccup has occurred, These day's we can be thankful that is all that is occurring, I had a fender bender on the 26th of DEC. and my insurance seems to be giving me the brush off and is unresponsive, communication seems to be lacking everywhere or is it just plain incompetence?

UGH, thanks Mike!

You just had to say that and remind me to check the forecast here. Snow expected tomorrow, and my 5th wheel is still not ready to pick up. I'm afraid tht when it is ready to pick up, I will not be able to get it into the drive for it as the snow will be blocking the entrance.

Any way, I found an inexpensive storefront to market my wares with, so coming soon will be a place to buy laser cut short kits and printing/copying services for those who don't have access to an Office Depot or Fedex store, or want prints up to 44" wide like some of the top flight plans. My wife just gave me another idea to add. Custom Wing bags. She said she would make me some several years ago, so I bought material. She has yet to do them, but said our future Daughter in law will help her get started. She happens to be a seamstress who has started her own business. If it works out that she can make decent wing bags, I can send some her way via my storefront.

Something definitely was going on with the forums. I posted twice to this thread after flyboy2610s last post. Both appeared on the thread. Then later disappeared when I checked the thread.

We got a taste of snow here. About 3 . It was a winter wonderland until it started melting. Next snowfall will be in a few years. Nice!!!

Picture is of the day it started snowing. It snowed all night into the morning. Lost power early evening until morning. Couple of broken trees I need to cut down.

No snow here yet even if we are 400 metres (1300 feet above sea level.) It is forecast for the early hours of Friday but will turn to rain before daybreak.

Bisco, I see you use a Spektrum transmitter, the Posh Bird from the South of England telling you how much time remains, gives it away!

I have been down in my cellar/workshop working on my Baron making sure that the model is ready in plenty of time for La Coupe Des Barons in June. This year it will be held near Lyon 125 kilometres, (78 miles) closer to my home. Deep joy! I hate driving and I'm not looking forward to all those big city drivers charging about! The tailplane is potentially a weak point on the Baron so I've been modifying it to make it more rigid.

Light winds are forecast for Saturday but it will be cold, only just above freezing point. I might just go down to the flying field to get some practice in and to enjoy some socially-distanced company.

David, are you still planning to go back to the UK permanently or will you be spitting your time between France and Miss Blue eyes' place?

There are a few jobs to do on the house here, then I'll put it up for sale. Once it's sold I'll move back permanently, but we want to come back to France for la Coupe Des Barons every year and for the summer interclubs at Berry Marche Modelisme, till then we'll be visiting each other every few months.

Another problem is that the part of France in which I live is losing population by the day so houses do not sell quickly.

I have considered purchasing a printer for my computer, the one I had cost $30 but the ink cost over $40 for tiny cartridges, I was given a copier-printer-fax, and I bought ink at $60+ today I haven't printed one page, the printer burned up. So now I am reluctant to purchase another printer because of the cost of these tiny ink refills, Is there a printer on the market that permits me to refill the cartridges myself ? I got lots of ink. It seems the printer manuf's have figured a way to suck you dry with overpriced ink cartridges. I will keep looking.

Get a laser printer, they aren't that expensive today and the toners last a LONG time and are not expensive to refill. Heck my mom bought a Xerox Color Laser and I think she said it was about $300. I bought a Brother, but not a color one.

Looks like it went up a bit since I got it in March last year Here is a better deal on it

https://www.officedepot.com/a/produc...ess-Laser-All/

This is the one my mom has,

Amazon Amazon

I just bought a Scanner Plotter that is ink jet and will have to make sure I run a simple color print job at least once a week to keep the print heads clean and flowing. I really don't wish to spend $400 for new print heads every few months. I know initially I will blow through ink and paper printing out the plans I have, but unless I get a steady flow of plans to print for others, I have to make sure to run a full color test through.

Hi Donny, A friend of mine just buys a new30 dollar printer everytime his printer runs out of ink and throws the old one away! I know that sounds like a waste of money!
