DM,  Battle is right on with staying away from the quick and dirty window replacment guys that cover the
rot and trim with alunimim. 

Windows can be a big can of worms once you start opening them up if you find rot
and the next thing you know you are removing the siding too.

Sometimes it leads to using "new construction" windows as opposed to replacment windows and the siding
can be tricky depending on what you have.

 From  the pic, that window trim looks solid, so hopefully no rot to chase. In that case, you may be able to use a replacment window and then replace the trim/sill with azak plastic . If there are hollow
areas where the old window weights were, I would fill with 2x4s and then foam and cover with Grace window tape and azak trim.

On Judith Sargeant Murray (b. 1751, Gloucester Mass) by author Bonnie Hurd Smith. The JSM house has a lawn where you can sit and enjoy a coffee (to the left of Bananas)

Bonnie writes Judith was::
“• The first person to claim female equality in the public prints ("On the Equality of the Sexes," 1790).
• Considered the first woman in America to self-publish a book, The Gleaner (1798).
• The first American to have a play produced in Boston (1795).
• The most important female essayist of the New American Republic, according to leading historians.
• The earliest known female American Universalist author.
• The co-founder of a female academy (Dorchester, MA).
• The only eighteenth century woman known to have kept letter books in a consistent manner.“

Her house (museum) on Middle Street is worth seeing especially the decorations for Christmas - soon Middle Street walk.

Thank you!

That picture is not actually my house, but looks just like my windows.
And the windows are very old with the window weights still in there on some of them!
Over 20 of them to do. I guess I will do just a few at a time.

From southwest Gloucester a view of Hamden Hill (oh wait - maybe not) another 32 degree day ( it’s been months like this - i.e. 32 degrees)  Train back in the AM.- a tad longer than from West Gloucester (about 3,000 miles)

Left Southwest Gloucester this AM. Last night the coyotes were noisy but at day break they sounded like a neighborhood of car alarms going off.  I think the coyotes are much much happier in Southwest Gloucester and I’ve heard they consider Niles Beach coyotes as “snowflakes”

The train had a layover when I got on and the next one is in four hours from now. Chicago is a mere 2 days away with an eight hour layover.

The Southwest Gloucester scenery for ten miles in all directions ...... nothing .........

News at 11.

At first it looked like a couple dogs were going to board at the layover in El Paso.  Instead wierd stuff happened and there was a commotion. Bags and luggage were being identified to its owner by agents and a bag got tossed onto the boarding platform,

It was very swift when the dog was led to the bag it jumped three feet in the air.  A passenger offered a description and when the guy came back from a walk to board the train again he realized it was over.  A couple pounds or so of white powder in liners.

They were all highly professional law enforcers double checking and triple checking with several minutes of passenger questioning.

The doggie was professional too.  The hour long layover in El Paso departed on schedule.  I saw it all happen in the train and on the platform.  I have pics but it wouldn’t be right to post - it was alleged.

Passenger Lives Matter.

About twelve hours later we had a three hour layover in San Antonio.  As I got off the upper deck and down the steps there was a dense pack of “blue” on the other end of the car - which I thought was ICCE folks but it was a dozen or so SAPD working on a passenger who was unresponsive at 4AM.

About 5AM, due to the emergency, the whole train deboarded. Everyone is solemn and talking quietly.

A News truck was here and gone.

Sad, the SAPD did everything they could I’m sure but ....

... nothing .......,,,,

Read past the headline. It's interesting.

Not surprising, frankly.

News at NOON;
Derailment minutes before arriving.  The train was marshaled far away to avoid the crash site but meant a long walk to station with luggage.

Blackwoods BBQ has on Clinton St offered a great great brisket. Pickled onion and cuke slices try pickling celery, green bean (raw) and whole garlic.

Lakeshore limited to back east in a few hours.

I think CNN should hire Matt Lauer and Lauer to persist until he gets an interview with Trump on sexual harassment.  To build up to the interview he speaks in many daily segments of alleged Trump abuses as well as his own.

So I wonder...does something inherent in the personality or character of the type of person that harasses others propel them to success?  Or does the success/stardom change the person to become a harasser?  I can't imagine something changing a person's basic character so I think some of it is there early on before success.

I think is starts with brain chemistry that effects libido. More powerful people need to moderate their libido - it probably helps with anyone who has a libido problem to know what’s going on inside them and to avoid any form of harrassment or abuse.

A common theme seems to be these news guys exposing themselves to people they are not in a relationship with.  I simply do not understand what they are thinking.

Are you saying that if you are not a predator you are a nobody?

I suppose that is the case among orcas.
