OK, I'll settle for that Dudley.
You have to be tall to be a Mountie, right?
And I checked on Google and Brendan Fraser's 6 foot 3...

Funny that you should mention that, I was headed to Seattle the next morning. I don't like to point out when I am posting from out of town until I get back just in case someone might be lurking. Anyway I didn't have time to look up Frasier as the sister-in law and nieces had enough trouble getting up in time so I could catch my flight smiley - rofl Even a non-fiction person would have been a strain. I am back home in the hot, flat land now. Nobody did any of my work while I was gone smiley - sadface so I have about a dozen drawings to finish and two or three job-sites to visit every day for the rest of the week.

I love guessing for a living. smiley - erm Why do they insist on calling it Engineering?

smiley - cool, FS
Y'know, I was looking at your "Nuts+Bolts" piece the other day, and just for a moment in among all that oh-so-learned Scoutery I thought you maybe needed some steering towards the metallurgy of cold-heading steels, and then I thought, no, (Bor-on) that is exactly what this guy doesn't need, because he has enough of that in RL, and moreover so do I.
So you just damn well keep on guessing for a living. The people who call it Engineering are the ones who have been taken in. There is absolutely no such science as Engineering. All we can do is use Maths and Physics to weigh up the gap. If we still fancy it, the next thing we do is shut our eyes and jump.
See you on the other side, kindred spirit.
Pinsmiley - ok

Sorry (really truly atch) cannnot. I was expecting to receive my one-month notice at the end of May, but I've been sentenced to another month.

So unless something untoward happens, it seems like I'll be here throughout July. smiley - sadface

I just don't remember ever being this civilised. Or humble.

Quite. The humility is indeed inspirational.

I know I'm going to regret saying this, but it would be good to re-establish this Convo...

You still in QLD then?
