LOL! Note I qualified the offer to "anybody interested". I figured you simply would've replied, "I'm just dying".

Thanks Bret. I printed the installments when they were first published on Bang Shift.

Bret, great read... you are a man of many talents  grin
Thanks for the links, I don't get to the other sites often and had missed that story.
Happy New Year... I guess we will have a 101 years of racing on the salt celebration this year.
Of course in the last 100 years the salt has gone metric... from 2 to 20 feet thick to 2 to 20mm  sad
