    Yah, I noticed that! but its cool too, like they are thinking of the next 12 years, probably a way of encouraging the kids to look forward to staying in school... I've never seen a graduation for kindergarten before either, thats a sweet concept in itself! Congrats to you and the young lady!

    Makes me feel oooollllddd for some reason... ;) 12 years is 12 years, but its relatively really not that far away either... And I just know I'm gonna feel it a LOT more when 2026 actually gets here too... :rolleyes::rofl:

    BTW, Happy Birthday!!! :Juggle:

    @svfd17 Congrats on the Aniversary coming up! :cool:

    Bart! .... Hmm?


    Mr Bartman, Sir I do recall a similar explanation of yours to me of said ninja-like activity. I will paraphrase: " your unnatural ursine-flightless-bird brain is far too undeveloped to comprehend this secret code" ....ok parts , or all of this may have been exaggerated. But I'm glad others @kertap75 did not at first get, the BART ninja-like code of 2014

    :);):D:p

    Edit BTWJK Bart. I know you don't think that! I mean you know I'm pure ursine! Just with a flightless bird name! :);)

    Nice one grinch. Finding something that works, some niche maybe and then being out on your own has gotta be a pretty awesome feeling:cool:

    Not quite out on my own yet ,but moving in the right direction . I own the business , but not the product or company that makes it . I just thought it would be nice to let someone else do the grunt work for a change . I just order it and stock it than sale it . it was cheaper this way instead of making it , so it was a win win from both sides .:D

    My job is done here then! :)

    My 3

    I've been and still am, head down and growling at quality manuals, procedures, standards inside at my desk the past few days with our impending annual external audit in a few weeks. I love learning new stuff.....after I've learnt it!!!
    BTW I say: "my desk" because it has my name on it and requires my signature on stuff. But my real and preferred desk is the passenger seat in my car, and bag :)

    Lots of power outages downed trees flooding etc here last few days. Weather gone wild. 90,000 lost power at its height we are told. That's a lot in our city for our little country. No majors just inconvenience. We only lost power for a full 3 minutes but dark at 6pm it was enough for this prepared ole bear to spring into action. I had solar rechargeable flood LED. set up and he lights came on with my wife smiling at me in a compassionate way seeing me grinning happily cradling about 12 lights I had previously stashed about the house. " Aww! Poor darling! You didn't even get to use all your little toys! " "I used one" I said. . .... I put them all back again. :(

    I get to escape my office-desk to the east cape next week. I don't really have the time or want to be away from family, but clients need me so I be there. And it'll be great to again have a cup of tea with some longtime down to earth non pretentious friendly customers.

    When I am in the office, I see google Chrome sitting smiling at me at the bottom of my screen. I like chrome! He's quick, quiet and unpretentious. I know he has "EDCF" on the very LHS of his bookmark bar:).
    No time at present but I know EDCF is always sitting there with a smile for me.

    Bonus. I made myself escaped the office for an hour for a late breakfast and a bit of mobile EDC forum fix. Made good use of my minimalist EDC too http://edcforums.com/threads/lets-see-your-minimalist-edc-carry.118828/page-14#post-1961310 .

    Back to it. Take care on roads all and have a great rest of week and weekend.

    Sounds like some crazy weather. Glad you weren't hit too badly.


    Do you think there is an EDCF wives forum. My wife says the same stuff.

    Definitely plausible !! Maybe a secret telepathic wife link - a Force if you will.
    Possibly It's "female ancestral instinct" (sounds like a thing doesn't it!? ) Passed on from the paleo days by the long suffering Mrs Grok :) from her book titled: "Words to use when Grok talks about his multiple redundancy systems of different clubs and torches he has stashed about the cave, just to put him in his place!"

    Good luck Grinch

    I always want to see people that take the risk of starting a business succeed. So I'm definitely pulling for you.

    I had to laugh at myself today when trying to fit into a pair of white overalls. They gave me size 3XL (my usual in say a Tyvek is 2XL ) -I got one leg half in! Not a :censored:show of fitting me. .
    So they found me one with XXXXXXXXL on the label!!- ( thats 8 XLs!! ) I was floored that they even made them that size. But I still could not get my shoulders inside!.
    I danced about and tried best I could to fit while commenting in disbelief that: " this is a 8XL! seriously!" much to the enjoyment of the size zero asian ladies standing by watching and giggling at what must have looked like a giant crazy white man trying to fit into a pillow case. :cry:

    Finally they hunted down an old disposable Tyvek XL -which I fit - just.


    Then I had to get out and again I had to dance about and try my best to get a shoulder out. Finally I had to rip my way out to escape - again much to the enjoyment of the size zero asian ladies standing by watching and giggling.:(


    Im so glad I can bring such merriment to people:rolleyes:
