    Sorry, since I should be in the Pittsburgh area it will be the Yellow and Black of the Terrible Towel. Fortunately the good football and hockey teams make up for the baseball club. The Pirates are so bad I understand PNC Park asked to be traded.....

    I should visit Australia and ride with you blokes. However, I fear you would mock my accent. Compared to many Americans, I sound British.

    Americans have such interesting accents, each state can have it's own slight twist it is interesting. In Australia you have people like my self with light---barely any accent and then the ones with that really strong generic accent that you expect.

    BAH

    It's not the stereotypical "Philly" accent heard in Rocky and mocked everywhere. Unlike most East coast cities, people in the Philadelphia area pronounce "r" in words - compare us to folks from Havahd or New Yawk or Balmah Mahyland. Also I find it helps me control my stutter to speak very deliberately and pronounce words carefully. Tom Stormcrowe says I sound exactly like my posts.

    Honestly Neal always looks a bit upset in his photos ( least in the few i have seen ), i put this down to two things

    1 and most important , i don't know him well enough yet.

    2. he has practiced that look so that we all don't know he is actually pissing him self laughing at the rest of the world


    joking aside, if you ever come to Australia let me know Neil, but try to aim for spring or autumn.

    Let me see if I can remember this....

    24c = (24 x 9)/5 + 32
    24c = 216/5 + 32
    24c = 43.2 + 32
    24c = 75.2f

    Had to earn temp. conversion for HVAC work.

    They're in short supply around here I'm afraid. More likely to run over feral cats

    It's not my fault ! I had a Dickensian upbringing.. One bowl of gruel a day and a wrap over the knuckles with a 3' ruler if you couldn't spell Historian correctly. We had inches, feet, yards and miles in those days, and we purchased butter by the pound. Petrol (gasoline to you guys) was sold by the gallon and milk came in pints. And then someone came along and changed it all.. It's all very confusing.

    It's a plan ! Get your knees done then come on down. Just not in summer as it's far too hot and sticky here in Queensland to make it fun . Never mind the accent, I spent two weeks in Ft Washington PA on business a couple of years back so I'll translate for tergal if he has a problem.

    Good looking cat. Mine isn't afraid of my bike, but she doesn't like it to come out. The cat thinks the bike should stay in the corner, but she admits it's useful for static electricity.

    static cat.... dont let it near your computer then =) . Gecko ( the cat yes named after a lizard) he is the biggest carry on , when ever i bring the bike inside to do work on it at night he sits in the corner and makes some rather pathetic sounds .
