    Default Going to Ruin Great Britain

    Yup, I'm heading out across the pond and England will never be the same. I'll be hooking up with Marty but hope to track down some of the LFBs that have visited our place in the past.

    MartinM, Steve, et al, care for a pint?

    And of course Paul Grimwood, I'd be honored to do some pulsing while in country.

    Artie and Paul talking tactics and nozzles - that would be worth paying good money to see. Maybe they could video it and turn it into a web broadcast on here.

    BTW - anyone heard from Steve lately - I haven't seen him posting on here recently.

    Before he can hog the shower he has to first figure out how to use those various weird creations that they have over there controlling the water in the shower. Usually takes me about 20 minutes of pushing buttons and adjusting dials before I get it working right. Of course every damn hotel that you stay in has a different model just to make it more challenging.

    i dont think i get a vote but i will say 'yea' on account of me stumbling across this thread at the right time.
    "There are only two things that i know are infinite, the universe and human stupidity. And im not so sure about the former."

    For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.
