    technical point. but in practice consistency is number one in my book. If you always loose 5

    MunkeeI see lots of people making similar set ups and that is fine. But IMO you are better off
    just building a BK with electric controls. Make your Hot water in the BK and pump it over to
    the MT and t...

I was married for 10 years before my wife knew I drank. Then one day I made a mistake and came home from work sober

When I got married One thing my wife, did not find
Was that I drank a bit, from time to time,
For 10 years, I keep this little secret
I keep it close, I keep it decent
Then one day, I made a mistake
What I was thinking, I can't relate
I had always held my composure
My mistake was, coming home sober
