  • August Turning Wheels

    I am sure by now some are wondering where your August issue of Turning Wheels is. Well Covid-19 has struck our printer's Hanover plant which meant a complete shutdown of the facility and a complete deep clean of it. All of this cost them 7 days of production time thus delaying Turning Wheels. However, the good news is that it was placed in the USPS today. All foreign issues will be in the mail by Friday. Pease be patient as this was beyond everyone's control and as we all know safety has to come first.

      Thanks for the communication. Is this Hanover PA or Hanover NH? I assume that which ever it is is the current mailing location.

        Thanks, Don. And...this post caused me to chuckle just a little. Thinking about the weird times and some of my own reaction to it and behavior reactions to this blasted pandemic. I have both, disposable masks and a couple of fabric washable ones. After reading that UV rays can kill the virus, I leave loose change and my work gloves on the black dash of my truck in the hot southern sun. Same with my masks. If there is a more UV saturated environment than a black hot dash inside the windshield of a closed vehicle in the southern sun, I don't know what is.

        So...I wonder if my August Turning Wheels should be given the "hot dash" treatment before bringing it in?

          John, thanks for the humor. I'd lay it on the dash board of my truck until the poly bag melts as I am sure that would kill all the germs.

              Received mine today. Excellent as usual. Particularly enjoyed the Avanti photos on inside front cover and page 9. Photos were taken in daylight but all lights were turned on. Cool!

                  John, I can't tell if you are joking or serious but the UV rays from the sun will not kill the coronavirus. Yes, the UV-C spectrum will kill bacteria and viruses but thankfully the atmosphere blocks these rays from the sun. Please don't rely on this as a means of disinfection. Just wanted to clarify for those that read it and think this will work.

                    Well...that's a talent (?) I've had since learning to talk. It frustrated my parents, siblings, teachers, preachers, and my 3 remaining friends for decades...

                    I do think a little more highly of the intellect of our fellow members who are capable of restoring and maintaining the old wheeled relics to which we are so devoted. Of course...there's always a few folks looking for an opportunity to qualify for nomination to the "Darwin Awards." But...instead of "restorers"...it looks like the destroyers and mayors of our large cities are leading the way for this year's awards.

                        Can't tell if you fellas are joking, or what? I've had mine for about 2, nearly 3 weeks. Of course, like all the other mail, it under went decontamination. Cooked it in the microwave for 2 minutes.............

                          Well, guys now you'll have the opportunity to sanitize September's issue as it was mailed yesterday with International issues leaving the country tomorrow. Enjoy it before you destroy it in the microwave or oven.

                            Bo,
                            Do you really "nuke" your mail on a regular basis?
