The great Urbanan-Kanadian war of 2013 is brewing. Text will fly, accusations traded, alliances formed, factions broken, and feelings hurt. It could get bloody, with a side of maple syrup and co-op organic veggies.

Glad Karl and I signed a peace treaty.

I do not envy that job, but if a trade were really possible, I would be game... But only for a week!!

Most days I gear up appropriately for the weather, ride about 5-10 miles to work, park about 15' from the door



then go upstairs, take off boots, sit in front of too many screens, and look out the window



PS, see the pile of dirt with snow on it (past the pond, across the road, behind the trees)? That's where GQ was throwing his DT and whatnot :)

Just getting the jump on you William. You're the master stirrer. I can only aspire to be as good as you some day. Age and wisdom I guess.

By the way, nice burnout Smelly. I didn't realize a DR could do that.

This tree fitty truly is an awesome force, capable of feats far beyond my imagination. Now that I'm nearly caught up on routine maintenance, I reckon you'll be able to feel the earth moving backward every time she hits full throttle.

However, it is the holiday season, so I guess I would trade you for your 530, if you ask nice enough
