  3. Ahh! my first car. Peugeot 403. Gas cap was under the tail light. Loved that car. Column shift. I could change without the clutch. thx for a great thread Hobot.
  4. lapse in protocol - dont be wiping your nose on that ffs. else they are just off to clean out a wasp nest
  5. Maybe Brad might be wondering more about who his Dad really is. I'm sure he reads here. l
  6. Is that Major Rob Ford getting a left in?
  7. whats the deal with the stern on this one? Is that a notch for another ship to snuggle into and rumba through the ice?
  8. BE CAREFUL... I almost turned a laser into a beachball by pressurizing it using a vacuum cleaner. I was totally unprepared for how destructive that little test was. l I hope to make it, but it won't be easy.

  9. Out to dinner at a haute cuisine french restaurant. First time there. Wife had bacon wrapped venison. Bacon was 'de-smoked' so as not to over power the venison. Subtle, yummy.

  12. as it happens, I have just finished reading a very well written and entertaining book (Terra Incognita, Sara Wheeler) about her experience as the first (sanctioned?) artist to visit Antarctica (I think that prior to this any artist was a scientist first, artist second, free-loading hippies dont count) I'd recommend this book for any of you who fancy some writing that is several cuts above what you are reading here - and no less entertaining.
