    That will be a challenge but you do great work! Looking forward to seeing progress. I made a sort of impression of a steel mill furnace myself because the more accurate work looked to daunting to me! :)

    The "Easter schmidt", you'll have to take up with God, the "honey-do's", you'll have to take up with "his" boss. :D :D :D

    After June first (when this current competition ends!), I'd be VERY interested in that, though mine doesn't compair to the steel mill.
