If it makes you feel any better, tough up here too. Plus our prices are about 20-30% higher.

Recently started a 75 Norton E-Start basket. Will have $4k+ into it before done, but should be better than break even. Then again I'll likely keep it cause that's what I do. It will be my 4th Norton (3rd Commando). Can't have to many, can you?

Damn, here I was trying to inject some humor so I can sit at the cool kids table and created a riff between loved ones. Sorry for using the under the bed thing, I didn't know it was a sore spot with some.
I apologize, seriously.

Yeah, Pete, I'm not mad at all.

When HAP goes into broken record mode, we just ignore him until the meds kick in.

Shock and titillate me! I've got money!

I like HAP's jokes. Don't be such a wet blanket.

Boy, you just put your self on a big, dislike, list of a few on this site.

You should apologize to them and beg forgiveness if you expect to become one of the in crowd..

Too much water passed under the bridge for me to care about what other people think of me.

Never been one of the in crowd, never will be.

Thanks for the advice though, and keep the quips coming. It amuses me.

When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead.
It is difficult only for the others.
It is the same when you are stupid
