After the "FIX" fix.

 

After the fix "my favorites" link still went to Utube. I still needed to link through to another page on the website to get on. Then I clicked the "Main" tab to bring up the homepage. Then I clicked add to favorites. Got message... this one already there... want to override?... clicked yes. Signed off website. Clicked on favorites. Main page comes right up. All is good.

Grain cars are gone from Petaluma

Just drove by Hunt and Brhrens this afternoon.  Didn't see the grain cars.  When were they taken away?  How were they taken away.  Where did they go?
