Thanks Cal.

(the upside of being an obnoxious pest is walking out the door within 60 minutes after coming out of surgery, at least three times faster than most, plus up and about within a day. But on most other occasions a drawback)

So, how was Maui ?
Flashed them folks there some prime Canadian tender loin, entered a bar belly rally, vulcanic eruptions ?

Electricity Can Kill You! - YouTube
That is sissy capacitors
would you like to try whit those instead?

And dear me that is so wrong as long as voltage is enough to jump across the insulation provided by the skin is the current that is going to kill one
so one got to think that what may be armless to oneself especially with fingers tips accustomed to a soldering iron and therefore a few kilo Hom's resistance may be lethal to young child whit just a few hundreds

Annual trip to see Dad so it involves cooking, portioning, freezing, cleaning, shopping and lots 'o' listening. Aside from that it was great.

You know it. I was dodging harpoons left and right.

Umm, you'll have to ask my wife about those. She's the expert.

Looks like you'll be hobbling for a bit yet. Guess you'll have to postpone the dance lessons huh?

Sorry...I was in the Burns unit......the Robbie Burns unit!!

It is his few days of celebration here in Scotland.

That such a writer has so much acclaim is a clear statement of the paucity of quality in Scotland's literary history. However - Burns celebrations are a good enough reason for a massive, national (and international) ****-up. Haggis, the traditional menu for such occasions, is a vile, well squashed roadkill like concoction boiled in a questionable condom , the accompanying turnips (neeps) are more fit for sheep consumption. The traditional mashed potatoes do have to be well killed by frost and snow to gain the required degree of revulsion to the taste buds. Its little wonder that you need a bottle of whisky already in you to sit down to this torture, another bottle poured over it and a further bottle to keep the others company. And then - having endured that - you have to listen to renditions of his 'works' in verse and song; and worse still lectures by self appointed experts on his life.
You then spend three days in bed with a few buckets in easy reach of the bed. By February most participants have re-emerged and can be seen in the light of day.

Oh, its a great life here for those of you with literary interests!

PS. I see that one word has been 'censored' by some do-good, PC, software. Well the first letter is 'p', the last two are 's' and the other you will know.

Ta Brian - Now I won't need to think about eating for a couple of day's and that should help to trim down the waist line a bit...

Except that when I go look at the original post (in the backroom area) there are just *'s meaning you were being more polite than you thought?
