    Well, I am back on line. According to my drywall set square we had 18" thanks to the Americans and their big cars.

    I lost my internet connection and the roof made a creak or two.

    And I did a whole lot of shoveling.

    But my American Standard Cadet 3 toilet made it though the whole event without a hitch.

    That is quality.

    I wonder if Dave made it?

    Dave's been covering for you while you were absent. Doing a good job of it, too. Claiming he doesn't understand snow in America, and saying how the feds should plough everyone's driveways.

    there is nothing better than the
    manly smell of WD 40 in the air
    while banging away on brass with a chisel and hammer...

    it smells like......victory......

    do not hit your thumb...

    I do like Dave. He has some good ideas about how this Nation should be run.

    What makes me laugh about Americans is that they pride themselves in being self-reliant (and plough their own driveways) yet still pay tax for someone to do it for them (the Feds) and then argue that it's a bad idea if the Government does do it!

    Your Government has it so easy.

    Nobody wants them to do anything and they still take your tax dollars!

    One day there will be global warming and the co2 production means nothing.

    When the sun runs out of hydrogen and starts consuming helium.....
