Surely a door that opens on the left opens on the right if you're going the other way.

To back up Buttercupdays here, a tool always works best at its own pace. Electric jigsaws, mitre saws, branch saws, whatever kind of saws, they all cut straight and clean if you let them but go off all over the place if you lean on them.

I suspect the peel thing requires biology lab equipment that I don't possess, but if you can pull it off, let us know!

My alternative answer for my favourite kind of apple: free ones! I was hiking in Austria a couple of years ago, and the pear crop had been so bountiful it wasn't economically viable or wasn't logistically possible to harvest it all, so there was pear ankle-deep on the minor road beside the orchard. I felt no guilt at all about helping myself from the trees on the way past.

Not surehow you'd get one at all cheaply, though, unless you put some fresh peelings on rooting hormone and compost under a sunlight lamp ...

Don't know the quote, but it sounds like it was Marilyn Monroe and she followed it with "I'm high maintenance."

Time for another one?

"It's where people can some day look civilisation straight in the eye and spit, and you don't have to please anybody, and you don't have to love thy neighbour. You leave the ba___rd alone."

Nobody? Alright.


I told Halloran we didn't do vocals, and he said, "What my Sissy wants..."

"My Sissy gets!"

She got it, all right!
