    Lord, I apologize for whatever I have done to be bored enough to have just read all of this.

    To continue, or maybe revive the original intent of this thread, I will now post about NOTHING.

    ctually if you had not ever seen me write or throw a ball, you would swear I was right-handed cuz I do pretty much everything right-handed, including shooting firearms. Although I have found that I can handle pistols very well and very accurately with either hand. But given a choice, I am a right-hand draw/shooter.
    Its odd that you mention that, i shoot left handed. I cant keep my right eye open whilst my left eye is closed, i can only keep my left eye open whilst my right is closed. I therefore cant line up a rifle using my right eye. And my right eye is lazy so i cant line up a rifle with both eyes open because my left eye dominates. So i am stuck shooting a rifle left handed and a pistol i shoot right handed but i hold it slightly to the left of centre.

    I should have seen that coming.

    The dark sucker in my bedroom has taken in all the darkness it can hold and now im left with too much dark. Its an odd type of dark sucker and i cant find a replacement one at the local convenience store which means im gonna have to go all the way to the supermarket. *sigh*

    It's funny that you talk about left-handers. Of the 5 men that are assigned on our shift to the pumper in our house, all are left handed. The 5 truckies and 8 rescue guys are all right handed in the house on our shift.

    It makes perfect sense if your pump panel is on the left side of the truck.
    Top mount would require one to be ambidextrous and if it's on the right side, you got your truck from Canada.

    Yeah its a real bastard to try and get to though. We have to use those little mechanic's trollies to get to the pump panel. Im sure there must be a better place to put it.

    Has anyone seen a REAR mounted pump?
    They make them.
    No hands required, I guess.

    Its way too late in the day to be thinking like that, Chief!

    As for the "right hand" pump only being in Canada.. not the last time I looked.

    Then heat olive oil in heat (medium heat). Add swordfish, Sear on one side for about 3-4 minutes then turn over and sear other side. Cook till desired doneness. Mine was just a tiny bit pink still in center but I wanted something a bit medium rare.

    remove fish and put on top of vegetables.Sprinkle lemon oz ( my lemon myrtle Aussie herbs) over top of fish. Use pan lid to cover fish to keep warm. Add little more olive oil to pan and toss in some sliced mushrooms and diced garlic. Saute for a few minutes, then add wine from marinade + I added just a little more wine ;squeeze in some lemon juice; scrap the bottom of pan to get the browned bits up. reduce liquid down till you have about 2 tablespoons of liquid.

    Pour over fish and vegetables. One pan, one dish meal. YUMMM.


    Almost forgot dessert-

    fresh strawberries drizzled with aged balsamic vinegar.


    my apartment still smells so good. Only thing missing was company.
