Well I'm over all this rain, I dumped another 30mm out here this morning, as we hit 257mm (just over 10") for this month and 487mm (just over 19") this year so far and this weather is set to continue here until the end of this month at least. :-O

Cheers.

Wiggo you live in a dry part of the world.

That's what they tell us, but when you've passed half a year's average rainfall in less than 3 months.....

..... does anyone have a Super Sopper or small hovercraft with a slasher handy as my grass needs cutting badly?

Cheers.


Barrow a few sheep, they will even haul the grass away Wiggo. LOL

[quote]Saturday Beer O'clock is only 75mins away now and a few home made lagers are warranted after all the mass produced stuff that I drank yesterday. ;-)

Oh yes all those Friday night parties. LOL
Had a guy that just got back from Cuba vacation, well he brought me some Rum (200ml) and a Cuban cigar
The Rum comes in a box, I guess for flying reasons and no glass.
The Cigar I'll have to vacuum seal since I don't smoke. So I'll save it for my dying day and then it won't matter. LOL

I love European beers, but Budweiser is inexpensive, and my system is used to it. My favorite beers are the Trappist Ales. I have been drinking Budweiser for decades. Some of the American craft beers are very good. Every now and then I stumble on a good one.

Steve


I agree Steve, it took me a while but I did stumble onto some real good ones.
But the good ones don't come cheap.

Tapper ale I have never tried.

Okay here is a wild guess.
Does it have to do with springs? like putting them on and off?

48ºF this morning and a good rain all night, I think most of California is getting some of it this time. We got 1 1/2 inches so far and more for the next few hours.

No wind at all.

I had to laugh one time when a friend of mine went west to another state and brought back a 6 pack of Coors which he said was so good. well in NY state you couldn't buy it yet so he gave me a can to try. I thought man this stuff is Awful , I have only had one other can in years and it was just the same, "AWFUL".

Bud and a few other big selling beers all fall under the same taste.
Micro brews are beating them by far better.

It was also a TV show, though I'm not sure if Chuck was in the show.
Chuck Conners was not in the 1964 show.

Yes:)
Martin Sheen was in the cast in the TV show.


My kids watched it every week.

Could be for trimming or stripping wire?
or putting tension on something being pulled?
