      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    NNL East News
    The NNL East website now lists the web theme for 2017. You can also see the new hotel information and print out a registration form. Here is the site address.

    This is great news. Really looking forward to it. And we'd love to see you return to NNL East in the Spring, too. Great to have you back, George.

    Harry, like everyone here I wish you the best. You have an advatage in that you live in an area that has some of the best doctors and facilities in the nation, so you will have access to the very latest medical procedures, technologies, and support available. Let them do their work so you can back to the model bench. Keep us informed because you have a lot of friends here and we're all pulling for your recovery.

    This is shocking. It's hard to imagine that any carrier has no orthopedist in their network. Orthopedic injuries make up such a large part of medical claims that they should have several go-to docs for their insureds. What are you paying for if not coverage for one of the most common conditions? Given the symptoms you describe it is likely that you have a disc impingement. The least invasive course of treatment would be physical therapy, but perhaps you will need injections or possibly surgery. Hope not, but none of this is free nor cheap. I would file an appeal with the carrier, a complaint with your state's Department of Insurance, and HealthCare.gov. Carriers hate to get inquiries from governmental entities so it might shake something loose. And definitely change carriers when the renewal period opens. But first check to make sure the new company can provide an orthopedist and potential orthopedic surgeon.Good luck.

    To each his own. I know how much you like Crown Burger, but I've never had one. I favor their steak sandwich instead. It does look good though.

    Can we forget Philly's finest? Dinic's roast pork sandwich with sharp provolone and broccoli rabe. Adam Rich selected this as the number one top sandwich in the U.S. I agree with that selection.

    The bill is still pending in the NJ Assembly. In fact there are two, one that just references Taylor ham and one that includes the term pork roll as well. I believe both bills are in fact moribund. Just for fun, you can see the more inclusive version here:

    Was A.J. Foyt's Hussein (the King, not the dictator) racer Can-Am or pre-Can-Am? There was a slot car but I'm not sure there was a static model. Either way I always thought it was a good looking car.

    Tom Geiger, How could you forget Fricker's? Went there several times when we attended the NNL Nats. Best wings ever.

    Anybody ever heard of this? It's different. Midwest only.

    Alan,  Nice of you to come on the forum. AAA Hobbies is my go-to hobby store. I happily drive down from Trenton because you literally have everything. While I would like to see a discount for forum members just like everyone else here, I also get that it would hard to reconcile that with your wholesale customers. That would be undercutting retailers that you supply, who are also loyal customers of Stevens. In any case it's wonderful to have resources like AAA.

    A few Mid-Atlantic NNL pictures.
    Had a great day at the NNL. Caught up with some buddies and saw a whole bunch of really outstanding models. Didn't take too many pictures but you can see them at the link below. Thanks MAMA's!
