close enough ... still wouldn't want to breathe it. hard enough to breathe the morning-after gas expulsions

Ah but there's often no reasoning I'm sure you know Don't know what gets into them but sometimes they just go bananaape**** when there's no real reason too. The funny thing to all this is before I even mentioned it what do you think she was doing? Yes, SHOPPING online for clothes and she had a $177 necklace/earing set in the cart. I mentioned it but she fought back with, "But I didn't buy it! It's still just in the cart and has been a while, I haven't purchased the necklace yet".

LMAO, the silly little things the Mrs can flip out about. This is the same women that told me, "Look... just go ahead and get the Mesa Triple Rectifier amp head for $1899 and be done with it so you're happy". I'll admit though, for a very very long time I've had the philosophy of "Get the better and *right* thing first and be done with it rather than cheap out and eventually wind up spending more in the long run to get it eventually anyway".

I hear ya, rev. my swmbo really isn't like that, really. she's been begging me to get a march 809 pump and a single-tier stand so i don't burn myself moving hot water around from keg to keg. i have 1 of these about 4 miles down the road:
