    Vinyl would be no good! Aluminium windows leave pretty silvery coloured blobs around the fire scene...

    That brings up another good thought....

    Should Stonehenge be sprinklered?

    And who would be first due in case of fire?

    (And you can just see the answer to that one coming, right? Wait for it.)

    So if I bring this thread back to the top of the list, am I prolongng its death? Am I responsible for the ongoing torture rather than just trying to kill it? Have I saved a thread that may have been killed?


    NO! I didn't think so either....................but we can't let it get pat the first page.

    I don't think it needs to be 'sprinklered', as nobody lives in it. (Bit draughty, big gaps between the stones, no roof, that sort of thing).

    'First due'? - I'd say it would be the Amesbury Station of the Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service. That was the closest I could see, but if anyone from Wiltshire is reading, they can correct me

    But after the vinyl or aluminum siding goes up a roof would be logical.

    Then it could be opened as a mall. That would require sprinklers.

    And the first due company in case of fire would be.....

    I guess this means we are building a metal truss structure, with sprinklers. How many levels will we make Stonehenge Mall and Emporium??

    It's either for an airport baggage handler. .. or a proctologist. The terminal digit thingie bothers me a bit.

    You must be applying to become a compudoor I.T. dork, whatever it is they do. Or maybe a systems analyst?

    I am having a chocolate crisis. There is no chocolate in the house (and me being the good girl I am, did not buy any today when I was in Whole Foods.) The cheap stuff will not do. If I am going to eat it, it has to be quality chocolate.

    I figured you would get this one Rick. It is from my Public Admin textbook. It is a partial description of a GS-3 File Clerk Position (Civil Service) (and NO I am not applying). I thought it was very funny.

    now back to my grant writing.....

    If you're not sane, would you know?

    And what about Woodhenge? Should it be stoned?

    You could move to the Middle East. They still stone people there.

    Yeah, but not the same thing at all.

    I thought Ohio was the middle east. It's not quite far west enough to be the middle west.

    Perhaps I was misinformed.
