LinkStuff – Model Train Show Edition

Recently, I took my family to the Model Railroad Club of Toronto show.  If you ever get a chance to attend this show or something similar in your city, I strongly urge you to do so.

I’m not really into model trains myself, but the club has been working on their display since 1938 and it is quite impressive.  The kids enjoyed it as well.  I kept a sharp eye out for the Swayze Express, but unfortunately did not see it.

Of course, part of me was wondering what amazing things this group could accomplish if they spent their time doing something useful.  😉  I’m kidding of course – it was amazing.

Here’s an article with pictures and a review from the show.

Today is the last day to get a free Kindle version of Mike Piper’s Investing Made Simple.  The paper book is only $5.  And no, you don’t need a Kindle to read it on your PC.  You can see my review of Mike’s book (the first edition).

All the Tim Horton’s around here are always lined up the door. So I’m sure it’s a pretty solid investment. I think you normally have to sign up for a waiting list to get the opportunity when they do decide to open a new location.

As for model trains, I’ve never been into that myself, but I bet some people make some pretty impressive creations. I just don’t get the obsession.
