DNatureofDTrain's News Article and Sharing Archives 

Note: This is here I relocate my blog archives so my blog does not get to full. However, Many of the sites and links are do expired over time, and will not load, also the videos that were removed were not transfered via link to the archives, so embed coding is transfered to the archives I will eventually add a specific area for video archives but for now the coding and or just links will remain archived, with the test, as my current archives does not allow the display of such.

Casey Jones Railroad News

Casey Jones News (from the last few weeks)

"And people think I am the only one who likes to listen to this song anymore call my tastes old fashioned then. My parents had wind up phonograph styled things.. I always loved those things, and while most in the 80's brought their favorite songs on tapes, I was demanding a record in 1989, I wanted Bangles Eternal flame on a record, my evil sister cracked the record.. then I had to settle for a casette..... Now I still like Casettes, and cds.. I believe if you really love the artist best to buy things that way instead of as an mp3.. but then again.. I am old fashioned. :) . " - DNatureofDTrain

But the number one ditty was "Casey Jones".

It became only the second million-dollar best seller in record history.

"It is painful yes, but these kind of memorials need to serve their healing purposes... But, be done in such a way it does NOT draw distraction to drivers on the road, or railroad workers from the train to the area. A Railroad worker who has witnessed his or her train run over a person is gonna struggle to not stare at the place where he ran them over.. and one sign of healing is when they no longer are drawn to look at the place, where it happened. I recommend the railroad companies to temporarily change routes, or to allow good mental health leave.. for railroad employees in such a trauma. But, if you a trackside at a memorial, to someone who has passed on. Look up at the passing train, and wave to them, and smile. If it is the train crew who accidently hit your friend. It may help them with the healing process as well. :) ."- DNatureofDTrain

Last weeks general news

1/27/2010 2 Weeks Ago General News...

"I think I hear thunder if so this is gonna have to weight.. as you all know I have a history of being prone to lightning strike, Hopefully today and tonight I can finish updating this and getting the railroad news posting up to date.. I also apologise if I have some repeats in both this and the previous post.. As I really seriously lost track of posting the general news.. Mostly do to health issues causing me to be sleepy and tired all the time, but I am still working hard on my work sites as well. Thank You all for your patience, Take care :) . " - DNatureofDTrain

"I feel Sheepish, It was icequakes.. Either way, I did not have alot of time, and I wanted to get some work in on mahalo before I left, my mother was suppose to wake me for supper she did not.. although they did save supper for me.. I was not able to get all my other e-work done either... So that again pushed me back, sighs. I am creating a line of new blogs that I will post on weekly, as well. The more blogs, the more I can earn through ads, and also force myself to write those books I been wanting to write, but have been putting off for so long. " - DNatureofDTrain

"If I were google, I'd stay in China but make them pay me for each thing they want blocked.. and make it expensive, then google could turn around and donate that to the National or public debt! and go hahaha.. but I am not google :P ..  I am DNatureofDTrain woohoo!" - DNatureofDTrain

http://finance.yahoo.com/taxes/article/108601/irs-online-tax-filers-can-get-refunds-in-10-days?mod=taxes-filing

"One thing I recommend everyone to do is to start a seperate banking or checking account just for what you want to give or donate.. Like if you want to give 10$ a month. Put the amount of money needed to keep getting 10$ a month out of interest for your donations account. Then you can keep donating monthly. This is not a bad idea to set up a Bills paying account in the same way, verses a recreational account for splurging fun.. and that not just for Haiti but for any other charities you want to give to there are tons of them out there. The more we help lower guys get into the upper guys the better the economy will be for everyone.. But always do your research on who to donate to first.. I can not stress that enough." - DNatureofDTrain

Dear Readers and railroad news

1/20/2010 12:14:00 AM

Dear Readers, and railroad news

Be sure to scroll back through the old posts, as I had added in plenty of news from the days I had missed posting.

We had technical difficulties with the copy and pasting... (the computer acting up)

I have not been feeling well on and off, also have been super busy with my other e-work as I am trying to push my daily earnings from 11 cents a day into 1-2$ a day...  So far its averaging 20-30 cents...  but I have hit one 1$ day.. and a couple of 80-90 cents a days..  I will also start to share in my news articles.. My Best responces earned on and off.. fromy mylot and mahalo...  So you can see some of what else I am doing.. When I am not updating my blog.

I also notice that this blog is having issues with page loading at times.. takes a few refreshes to get it to load all the way.. I find that just as irriating as you all do, as it is holding me back from adding as many posts as I could be adding. Good news is I only have 11 days of posting this year to catch up on, and then the blog is all caught up. I have a few non railroad articles I will post in one stint..

Eventually as things work out better. The Railroad News, and General news will be posted together.. if I still have problems with the blog.. I will just have to use my website News forum with it... and add a link there.. I will Eventually have an archives page up with links to the older news articles, and everything will be transfered off of blogger...

I will be starting a few new blogs... For my writings and stories... and even ministering..

So Stay tuned for that... This will be a new adventure and a way to expand my actual works... and Open to my readers a world they probably never thought to much about but had often had wondered about...

I am however done posting for tonight... :) Thanks to my readers for being patient for my sharing updates :) . And, I will hopefully resume to commenting more.. But I do not have alot to say on this weeks news other than RIP to all those souls who ended up in derailments and collisions, and my prayers and thoughts are with everyone else who is effect by this...

And of course.. The Quake in Haiti is on my mind often.. but I am not posting many articles on this.. because the Mainstream media on TV Stations is covering it well... as most railroad news is often never makes the TV..

"With inflation and bad economy and everything else.. There are so many ways they can do sponsors and  ads to keep prices down.. but I am learning through my own things how hard it is to really get sponsors as people have forgotten over time those ad decorations are suppose to encourage you to buy or drop a simple thank you to those companies for sponsoring your activity, or item for free or a more affordable rate.. If Ad sponsors know they are being looked at via clicks, or sales being made.. They will most likely keep advertising and sponsoring as they want to show their ads where the consumers will see them.. It takes an average of seeing the same ad 33 times before a person will even consider buying or clicking on the ad unless it is straight down the individual's interest list. In some cases they have Target advertising but I do not always 100% agree with many targeted methods coming up like me. .. Just because I am a woman you can advertise perfume, Earings and pearls to me all you want.. But, I ain't buying.. I don't wear those things. I already have my mind 100% made up on what I do enjoy wearing.. " - DNatureofDTrain

I would not want anyone to stop me. I have dreams of building my own country.. a small one.. but larger than Vatican City lol.. But, that is not gonna happen .. because no one seems to agree with the same values as I do.. in the long run..  I had a project I started call the Ludetribe .. Using four letters from my last name and  putting them into an acronym meaning Living Under Diving Energy.. I put the project on hold.. and figure if I restart it since it is based on Heinzism.. it would be the Heinzist Tribe or Nation... But.. I need to pull the supporters together and have a serious talks on how to resume this project.. and in the end we may stick with the Ludetribe name.. But.. I dunno it was a fun thing I had alot of faith in and I still get email requests from people who actually want to move in and live with us Ludetribals.. as I saddened inform them that we never made it beyond the planning stage.. So.. Some dream of the world's Tallest Buildings.. I dream of a Small Spiritual based free state like nation..  But even so.. We never did plan on making it past the micronation status.... But I figure if I never successfully get my Grandpas old house.. or the marshland here..
