Ah, Bilby, come to Texas, we can give ya what ya crave..........we've got at least 5 geographic zones to deal with...............I think that's what I learned in 7th grade Texas History.....the teacher was terrible by today's standards and would have been run off by now had she been still teaching.........she would assign chapters to read and then stare at us and expect us to recall the entire chapter---------BORING and an easy job for her. I HATED 3rd period and if I have bad dreams some of them are centered around her -----now isn't that interesting??

I'm strictly lump and hardwood, the extra work has never bothered me, fact I revel in it.

That extra work is the deal breaker, this is the first time I would like to have a propane grill.

Your in NW Pa? I'm in NE Ohio, have you seen the Radar?

More coming our way.

Ha, my Texas History teacher in 7th greade would play country music as we worked...and every time she heard a song she liked, she would stop us, crank it up, and teach us to line dance! She was fired a few years later.

Here lately it varies.

If I'm off work, it's miserable weather. If I'm stuck in the office, it's gorgeous.

Geography was part of Social Studies and it was the most tedious subject going! Even things I was interested in (like Ancient Egypt), I lost interest in after they got to it!!!! After the Industrial Revolution, I think I became comatose. That's probably when they started on geography!!
