The Top 10 Model Train Shops In Alabama, Florida, And Georgia

For the past year I have been compiling a list of model train stores for my model railroading website. These shops all look like a lot of fun to visit, but what are the most popular? Here is a list for the states of Alabama, Florida, and Georgia.

The most popular model railroading shops (based on online chatter) in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia are:

10. Trains by Johnson in Pensacola, Florida

9. Warrick Custom Hobbies in Plantation, Florida

8. Blairsville Hobby Shop in Blairsville, Georgia

7. Southerland Station in Huntsville, Alabama

6. Electric Train Outlet in Saint Louis, Alabama

5. Trains and Treasures in Clearwater, Florida

4. H and R Trains in Pinellas Park, Florida

3. Bull Street Station in Savannah, Georgia

2. Legacy Station in Lawrenceville, Georgia

…and the most popular shop for model trains in Alabama, Florida, or Georgia is…

1. Kennesaw Trains in Kennesaw, Georgia

Hobby shops not quite making my top 10 were Model City Models in Jacksonville, Alabama; Pyramid Hobbies in Cullman, Alabama; KB Hobbies Model Trains in Stuart, Florida; Hollash’s Trains in Riverview, Florida; B&B Sales Hobby Shop in Snellville, Georgia; and Young Again Trains and Hobbies in Stockbridge, Georgia.

So, there are clearly many great model railroading shops all over Alabama, Florida, and Georgia, with both Georgia and Florida having four in the top ten and Alabama having two. Georgia did especially well to have all three of the top three.

When in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia be sure to visit some of the excellent railroading museums including Foley Railroad Museum in Foley, Alabama; Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum in Calera, Alabama; North Alabama Railroad Museum in Huntsville, Alabama; Central Florida Railroad Museum in Winter Garden, Florida; Florida Railroad Museum in Parrish, Florida; Gold Coast Railroad Museum in Miami, Florida; North Florida Railway Museum in Green Cove Springs, Florida; South Florida Railroad Museum in Deerfield Beach, Florida; West Florida Railroad Museum in Milton, Florida; Charlemagne’s Kingdom in Helen, Georgia; Roundhouse Railroad Museum in Savannah, Georgia; and Southeastern Railway Museum in Duluth, Georgia.

I compiled this list by searching for the hobby shops listed on a number of search engines and ranking them by the number of web pages, discussion forums, photos, videos, etc that are available online. I further screened this list to include only pages that mentioned model railroading.

Types of Travel Insurance

Travel insurance policies provide at least six types of coverage, intended for different types of travelers and trips:

Comprehensive medical travel insurance is for people who don’t have any other medical insurance, even at home. Since most people who can afford it have health care coverage in their home country, often through their employer, comprehensive travel medical insurance is mainly of interest to long-term travelers who’ve left their jobs and lost their insurance coverage at home, or to those living and working outside their country of citizenship or permanent residence.

Emergency medical travel insurance is for people who have medical coverage at home, but whose health plan at home doesn’t cover them while they are travelling. Emergency medical travel insurance only covers emergency services abroad; once you get home, you’re back under your regular home coverage for any necessary follow-up treatment or continuing care. Check with your current insurer before you waste money on an emergency travel medical plan that duplicates your existing coverage.

Medical evacuation travel insurance covers the cost of an air ambulance, attending physician and nurse, etc. if you are so badly injured, or become so ill, that you can’t come home or get to a suitable medical facility on a scheduled commercial passenger flight. Even very badly injured travelers usually can come home on regular flights after no more than a couple of weeks of emergency treatment and stabilization abroad. Some of the activities most likely to lead to a need for medical evacuation, such as scuba diving and extreme sports, are often excluded from medical evacuation coverage.

Trip cancellation and interruption travel insurance covers the cancellation or refund penalties and the cost of getting home if you have to cancel your trip, or cut it short, for specified reasons. The covered reasons vary, but typically include injury or illness to you, a travelling companion, or a member of your immediate family. War and terrorism may or may not be included, or may be covered only at additional charge.

Supplier default insurance covers any money you lose because of the bankruptcy of an airline, cruise line, tour operator, or other provider of travel services. Some travel insurance companies no longer offer it at all, while others pick and choose which travel suppliers they will insure.

No matter which type of travel insurance you go for, make sure you read the fine print!

Lessons For Children From The Beleif Of Our Lady Of Fatima

Believers say that In 1917, the Virgin Mary appeared to three young children in Fatima, Portugal. During those appearances, Our Lady of Fatima, as Mary came to be known in connection with the visions delivered a message to the children. This Fatima message included three secrets, including a vision of Hell. The secrets in the Fatima message and what would become the Fatima prayer teach children who believe if Fatima the five important lessons that are as relevant today as they were nearly one hundred years ago.

Lesson 1: God is with us every day—Perhaps the most important part of the Fatima message is that God doesn’t just exist; He is also a part of our lives. The Virgin Mary is an extension of God, and her appearance is in itself a message that God actively participates in the world.

Lesson 2: People can be saved—One of the secrets Mary revealed was sinners can be saved. This is an important lesson for children to learn as they begin to enter formative stages in their lives.

Lesson 3: Prayer is important—The Our Lady of Fatima prayer is a perfect prayer for children to learn. Its simplicity is its perfection: “O God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love you. I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love you.”

Lesson 3: Peace is possible—In addition to teaching the children the Fatima prayer, the Virgin Mary also told the children that the world is capable of peace, but only if it chooses that path. Children need to know that the world is what they make of it, and this was conveyed at Fatima.

Lesson 5: A miracle changes more than just one life—Even though Our Lady of Fatima appeared to three children, the miracle of the visions has in many ways changed the lives of millions more. Today, a century later, the world is still captivated by the visions. It is a miracle that continues to inspire, and children should know that miracles are possible.

The Fatima children are no longer alive, but their legacy and that of the Virgin Mary visions continues for many. Some people believe that each time a child repeats the Our Lady of Fatima prayer, he or she also knows that God exists, people can be saved, prayer is essential, there can be peace, and miracles are real.

Beautiful Young Female Models Of Asia Emerge In Fashion World

Of late, the trend in the fashion world shows beautiful young female models of Asia emerging in an unprecedented rate. Female Models from the diverse locations of Asia such as Japan, Taiwan, India, China, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Malaysia, Pakistan, Afganistan, Hong Kong, Myanmar, Thailand and other locations of Asia are seen in popular advertisement campaigns of commercial and non-commercial entities across the world. This growing significance of the young and beautiful female models from these regions is the result of the new paradigm shift in market capitalization. The Asian region, especially the India and China factor alone constitutes the major chunk of the world population. This entails the major market participation of the region in the commercial operations which are going on and which are yet to come. Economic pundits and industry experts are of the view that in the coming phase of development in the world, the major growth pace will take place in the Asian region. As result, major business brands of the world are vying with each other to grab a bigger share of the pie through product positioning and aggressive market aggrandizement via publicity blitzkrieg and other stratagems.

As part of beautiful young female models of Asia emerging in fashion world, there is an upsurge in the modeling industry in India. In India the modeling industry is closely linked with the film industry. Hence, most of the leading models are film stars. Take for example the case of the leading Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai. Aishwarya has been at the helm of the show business in India for several years now. She has starred in many Bollywood blockbusters. She is married to the son of the all-time Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan. Her husband Abhishek Bachchan is a film star in his own part. This trio has figured in some films. In the modeling industry also this family trio has a considerable stake. A resent industry source release claims that Aishwarya Rai alone signs up for an average INR 100 crore modeling contract annually. Apart from the Bachchan family and Aishwarya Rai in particular, there are other Female actresses of Hindi and regional language films who figure in modeling industry.

I have stated that it is an acceptable fact that beautiful young of Asia emerge in the fashion world today. Bollywood actresses Sushmita Sen, the erstwhile Miss Universe (Aishwarya Rai is in her stand a former Miss World!), Vidya Balan, Karishma Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka chopra, Asin Thottumkal and a whole host of Indian actresses are active in fashion modeling.This is an inevitable development and it is essential to sustain market capitalization.It is sheer commonsense on the part of marketing and advertisement agencies to rope in regional fashion models to endorse for the products and thereby easily win the consumer preference.

Photography Canvas Photo Printing

When it comes to canvas photo printing there is no better way to get an amazing looking canvas print other than having a top quality camera and a professional photographer at the other end of it. You can of course create really great canvas prints from your own images that you have lying around or indeed on your won cameras and the results are still out of this world but if you really want to get the best effect possible and the best canvas print possible then you might want to speak to a local photographer to get them to take some photos and you can choose which one you like the best to have it printed to canvas.

Many photographers that do their work as a full time job usually offer different kinds of services when it comes to giving their customers the best possible outcome and experience and canvas printing us usually one of the top products they can offer you to have hung in your home. That the great thing as when you get some really great photos taken it not just about what the end results are it the taking part and enjoying the moments with your family of lived one so that you can then look at the brilliant moments captured by the photographer and then you can pick out some good photos to have printed onto some canvas photo prints. Not only will a photographer offer canvas prints but there is other types of ways to make your images look so good, one way that is becoming more and more popular would be having a certain photo printed onto a bored which is basically laminated onto a black and any colour board which you then can hang up on your wall for your to enjoy. Another is of course the wonder of just having a normally photograph in a normal or indeed a wonderful frame which is then ready to place of being proudly hung anywhere in your home to.

So photography and canvas photo printing is the thing that is very trendy and a very modern type of wall decoration that you may find in a lot of homes these days and the best of it is that these types of printing tend to last a life time to as the ink that the canvas printers will use have a very good fade warrantee that allows you to purchase a canvas print and have good faith that its not going to fade anytime soon. I would recommend that you dont have the canvas in direct sunlight for a long period of time though, as many canvas prints will be able to withstand the sun for a long time but evidently overtime the sun will win in the end and the print may fade so this is a good tip to remember to keep it out of constant direct sunlight. So yes basically having a canvas photo made is lots of fun and you should really give it ago at some point.

Gold vs. Money

Gold salesmen will always claim that paper money is worthless. However, we should always be reminded that they are selling something. What they tell their clients are standard sales pitch expected from anyone who is selling something.

One fact is that money is only valuable because it is a medium of exchange. The money in our pockets is exchangeable for precious metal. As long as a service or a good is exchanged for money, a dollar is worth something. Otherwise, it is just a piece of worthless bill in your wallet.

However, since it is a medium of exchange, the idea that money is worthless does not make sense at all. If it is useless, it is implied that every written agreement is useless as well. In fact, money that is involved in most commercial and government transactions does not involve currency. This is the reason why the government cannot just print more money and use it to finance projects and other developments for the country. If this is the case, then all the government needs is a printing press and people won’t have to pay taxes. When you get a loan from a bank, that money is basically created from nothing. For accounting purposes, the bank cuts a check and places the money into your account. There is no cash involved in this transaction. You can pay debts or give someone money without any cash involved. This goes to prove that most business transactions do not involve cash or currency.

The truth is that gold for the past years has been a poor investment as compared to the US dollar. Unlike the Indians and Chinese whose investment on gold has increased by approximately 200%. For the last two and a half years, there has been a massive shift of investment into the US Dollar from gold and other forms of currencies. This means that investors from all parts of the world have high faith in the US economic, political, and financial system. This has made gold a victim of the improvement of the US Dollar.

However, there are at least two reasons why gold is still a good investment. First is the fact that gold has been valued as a form of wealth since the ancient time. It is, therefore, a logical alternative in the event that capitals need to shift from currency. The second is in par with the first reason. It is a fact that throughout history, precious metals have been used to defend wealth from destruction. In other words, gold has maintained its purchasing power for a long period of time.
