Dave, the tiny amount of regular lawn we had left is in the process of being converted into a mixed fescue low mow area with naturalizing flower bulbs planted intermittently. We saw one that got us thinking about it in Obreck gardens in Madison. My old Toro is close to being sent to a local high school small engines class for students to play with.

75 is melting. Mind boggling.

That's the setting on the AC thermostat at my house. Cool it down to a nice 75.....

Don't forget Robert that our bodies in Canada don't freeze until -40C or F take your choice, it's the same. But they melt when it hits 20C or 68F. Bet you're glad to be out of ON, or are you?

That A/C temperature setting is the same that we cook food at here.

Yep, if you order it well done. Beer needs to be a little cooler. Can't go with those European serving temps, though we used to rather than spend beer money on ice.

"Some days are better then others". This banter should be on Facebook. But sure enough, this banter made me log into this forum too many times (hooked by now), reading almost every thread, and unknowingly picking up "technical" stuff.
A huge Thank You for all the "banter" teachers on this forum who make learning fun!!

Be careful or you can come to the point where your mate walks by says "are you on that stupid Forum again?" shakes their head and walk on by.....

When we meet other Escape owners, Mary introduces herself as the one who is never here...
