    Are you going to drive down to do the Nessie tour? It is a bit deliberately corny, but a well worth it lake cruise with a tour of a more delapidated castle on the water. I still have two camera film canisters of Loch Ness water with a stone from the lake in each one. I'll let you all know if a little Nessie starts to grow from them.

    Loch Ness is not very wide, but it is really long and very deep.
    .
    No I'll likely not make it to LockNess....
    I am likely going to try and make it up to the site of the World Cup Downhill Mtn Bike race in Scotland, Fort William and do a ride as well as to Glentress just south of us....

    I am so awed and humbled by the architecture here. It is so rich and ornate. The private school they took us to last night ( http://www.fettes.com/ ) was unbelievable. It makes you realize how young and unsophisticated North America is....

    To Art's shock....I did make it into a church and did make it out in one piece although I did stick to the round part so the devil couldn't corner me....

    Here's a picture of the front of the place we were at last night....very, very impressed with the people and the culture...

    Don't you just love it when they use some overly generic term to make it sound like they know what they are doing? This is almost as bad as after two years of extensive, weekly study for when I used to have nearly daily headaches, they diagnosed me as having multiple headache syndrome....DUH!?

    This is why we say that the medical industry "practices" medicine.

    This is extremely dangerous (as you already know). My son had a collar bone break, pinned, and infected. It was treated as an ordinary infection for a month or two. When it flared up while he was on Air Force reserve duty, the military doctors diagnosed it as osteomyelitis and they removed some of the diseased bone and started a very aggressive antibiotic treatment. He took the medicine through a picc line for a couple of months. This worked for him andI hope that your doctors don't dally around with this.

    Sup Gruppys. This heat wave is stirring up some work. Today alone I finished a furnace and AC retrofit with a low boy to high boy conversion and chimney liner to boot. Then had to come home and put in a window shaker to stop the girlfriend from....complaining.

    Now all the old guys in the building who watched me do it from their sitting spot are asking me when I can do theirs (they all have seen me come home in the service truck before). Maybe it's time to fix the Windstar slap a ladder rack on it and design a pretty logo? LOL nah not for a few more years. Need to get better at being gruppy first LOL. It's all starting to make sense. I'm finding I'm quicker at solving problems now. Like modifying a window shaker mounting kit so that it actually holds the unit and doesn't want to drop it lol (it was on sale at Canadian Tire-just ask Doug what that means).

    Never did get to go back to the mystery walk in. Apparently it's working the way the customer wants now. Maybe he put vegetables back in it lol.
