Field Trip!

Although Hamburg, Germany isn't exactly known as being a tourist destination it is home to Miniatur Wunderland which is the largest model railway on the planet. This isn't just a railway though - it's planes, trains, automobiles and ships and people... lots and lots of teeny tiny people doing everything imaginable. It is a computerized 14,000 sq ft. (with expansion to 26,000 sq ft in the works) marvel not to mention that the designers have quite the sense of humor if you look closely enough.

I even found a gray E93 in one of the scenes!





























Still pictures don't really do it justice so included is a link:

http://www.miniatur-wunderland.com/

And when you get tired of looking at the teeny tiny cars, Hamburg is also home to the Prototyp Museum which is a small but very nice collection.

















If you ever find yourself ending up in Hamburg look these venues up - you won't be disappointed.

Nice pictures Kat, I'll put Hamburg on my short list. Either one of those two venues would make it worth the trip. I have to ask...Do they have hamburgers there, the food, not the residents? They do have weeners in Vienna, but they're not Oscar Mayer.

I'm surprised you let her keep any car in your garage, over your BMW.

How are you?

There is apparently a connection between passion for cars and passion for model railroading.

This book on model trains was written by legendary race driver Sam Posey,

Depends upon if you count schnitzel as a burger!

Thanks Furball. I wish I would have had more experience with the 1080p video recording on my new Nikon D7000. At MW there was so much action and so many funny things going on.

I'll have to check that one out. I can see where the overlap could exist. Miniatur Wunderland is a delight even if you have little interest in model railroading per-se. There are something like 65 individual computers runnng all the animations and the sequences are incredibly complex.

They don't have those, but they have Wiener Schnitzel in Wien, as well as Wiener Würstchen. Weener? That's like calling your vehicle a Beamer!

I concur with Kat that Hamburg is a neat destination for a day. Seeing the many ships in the harbor, sampling the seafood fare; it has a unique northern feel. You can also turn south-east for a day and visit the area along the Elbe river (Neuhaus to Wittenberge).

Worse, I think...calling a Wiener a weener will at best mark you as a foreigner, perhaps much worse if he's bigger than you and touchy.

I knew the proper name of a resident is Wiener, but I needed a homophone to make the joke work. Are we dealing with homophonia here?
(On a positive note, if you are conversing with a Wiener and call him a weener he will smile and nod. However, I do not recommend that when in Limburg you make a big point of mentioning that you like all Limbugers, but have trouble getting past the smell.)

The Henry Ford Punch Bowl has been found thanks to a "Chowderhead"

As I mentioned about a month ago in this thread Edsel Ford II was the featured speaker at the December 2011 meeting of the Madison Avenue Sports Car Driving and Chowder Society (see Autoweek article below). He asked for the members help in locating the punch bowl that has great grandfather Henry Ford I had won in 1901 in his one and only auto race, One of the members (many members are in advertising and journalism) was able to get an article about his presentation published in the New York Times, Someone in Holland saw the article and knew of the location of the Punch Bowl. According to Mr. Ford it is now in Detroit in the process of being authenticated,






By: Aaron Sigmond on 12/16/2011


Ford has lost the Punch Bowl--and we want it back,” declared Edsel B. Ford II earlier this week in New York City.

Indeed, the Punch Bowl is a historical artifact of Ford Motor Racing (which predates Ford Motor Co. by two years), and Ford wants it to become one of the centerpieces of the “Racing in America” exhibit at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich. Ford II described the trophy previously as “a footnote of history that sometimes it gets away from us. Frankly, the Punch Bowl has meant a lot to me personally. I was hopeful that a few years ago we were actually on our way to finding it, but that didn't happen.”

The background: Henry Ford was broke in 1901. His first automotive venture, the Detroit Automobile Co., which made delivery trucks, went belly-up. “It was a crushing defeat for Henry Ford,” recounted his great-grandson, Ford II.

Investors, including the then-mayor of Detroit and a U.S. senator were none too excited funding another Ford folly--though onus of the failure was actually on them, as they insisted that Ford produce trucks, not cars.

Ford, his wife Clara and their seven-year-old son, Edsel, moved into his parents' house while Ford plotted his next move.

“If he wanted to start another car company, and he did, then Henry Ford needed a new source of capital and to capture the public eye. So to do that, he turned to racing,” continued Ford II.

Ford II told the tale earlier this week to a packed room at the annual holiday luncheon of the Madison Avenue Sports Car Driving and Chowder Society, held at NYC theater-district mainstay Sardi's since 1957. Ford II recalled over the course of an eloquent and fondly anecdotal talk the story of Henry Ford's first, and certainly most fortuitous motor-racing win against America's first racing superstar, Alexander Winton. It was at that race that he received the trophy, an American Brilliant cut glass punch bowl by T.G. Hawkes & Co., of Corning, N.Y., for which Ford Motor Co. has renewed its search.

On Oct. 10, 1901, the Detroit Driving Club planned to host a 25-lap race on the Grosse Pointe Blue Ribbon Horse Track. To potentially entice investors, Henry Ford and a small team headed up by Ford and Childe Harold Wills, built the famous car they named “Sweepstakes.” Ford was not looking for speed (the car's engine made only 26 hp) but reliability. It was a good decision, as things turned out.
On the day of the race, approximately 8,000 fans packed the grandstands. The 25 laps had been trimmed to 10 because events on other days had run long, and the move from endurance to sprint was not good news for Sweepstakes or Ford. The field of competitors had also shrunk to three, after mechanical issues forced others to withdraw, and then two. Ultimately, it was only Ford and Winton in the race for victory.

By lap seven, Ford began to catch up to Winton, the “fastest man in America,” and by lap eight, Winton's car began to sputter and misfire. Ford won the race, and with it, a much-needed $1,000 prize, and, of course, the Punch Bowl. Winton's team had been so sure of winning that it had convinced race organizers to choose the Punch Bowl as the trophy because it would look good in the bay window of Winton's home.
Instead, the Punch Bowl remained in the Ford household until 1951 when, after the passing of Henry's widow Clara, the bulk of the estate was sold at auction at the Parke-Bernet Galleries (later acquired by Sotheby's) in New York City. The bowl went to a client identified only as “The Garden Shop.”

“When the grandchildren [of Henry and Clara Ford] dealt with the estate, nobody realized the significance of the Punch Bowl [as the first trophy of Ford Racing],” said Ford II. “They presumed it was just a quaint old antique.”

Sold off with the bulk of the furnishings and other household goods, Ford II mused, “it's probably on a dining-room table somewhere with ornamental apples or up in someone's attic.”

However, if you own the Punch Bowl--or know who does--don't get your hopes up that a financial windfall is imminent.

“There is no reward being offered,” Ford II said

Exclamation Charity Challenge

Hello Friends!

I hope you are all doing well.

Recently I volunteered for a charity group, (http://www.vso.org.uk) which raises money to send human resources (doctors, teachers, construction workers, etc) to East Africa to help impoverished children.

I have worked on a number of charities before and this is the first time I am taking a lead role for my segment. My goals for this is two fold:

1) To raise at least $7,500 which goes to the charity. This money will be pooled with other donations to help train, send, and keep skilled workers helping the children
2) Out of my own personal funds I will travel to Tanzania, meet with some of the children and volunteers to see the work they are doing. To culminate the trip, and symbolize reaching the fundraising goal on Monday, September 9th, 2012, I will raise my hands while standing on the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world, after climbing over 19,000 feet with fellow team members from all over the world.

What I ask of you is also two fold:

1) If you can, proceed to this link and help by donating http://www.justgiving.com/ClimbToTheSky
2) Share the above link, as well as my FB group page with people that you know so they too will hopefully donate and share the link: http://www.facebook.com/groups/289957841053638/

I appreciate you taking the time to read this and helping support my cause.

Best

Furball

I know, it's a pain. Unfortunately, since VSO is UK based they trade in pounds. Google can do the conversion for you:

Presently 1.5441 Dollar = 1 Pound.

Sorry to hear Ice. Watched my wife go through that scenario 20 years ago, including recovering from a shattered drill guide in surgery that left detectable titanium slivers in the x-ray.

Good luck with rehab, all my sympathies from my wife & I.

Thanks Ice,

It was a long, grueling rehab but after 2 pregnancies the knee loosened up. Although she no longer runs (torn it in a fall, running cross country), she's the best mountain climber, ocean/river swimmer and beach walker that I know! My best, knowing you are young, determined and strong, you will be back on track soon.

All the best, Ice! You'll be fine. The rehab will be painful but if you push through it you'll be practically back to your old self. Did you get one of those fancy ice packs that wraps around the knee and constantly circulates cold water? I never had one for my meniscus but heard ACL folks talking about them.

Get better!
