    Just finished watching American pickers. I always end up wanting to migrate to the good old US of A.

    Geez I love that show. Always interesting characters.

    I found Washington amazing. Everything is so clean and gargantuan.

    I love that show too by the way!

    Mrs SIXPAC has always said that if we ever go overseas we have to go to America. Im pretty sure we will one day. It will be a good trip too as I will be doing a top fuel drag car crawl with my boy while Mrs S & daughter will fly over New York by night in a chopper which is a bit of dream of hers & then we will meet up and do an Aussie pickers tour and load a fracking container with goodies.

    Once stitched my Whippet up after he went through a barbed wire fence chasing a rabbit. Funny how they dont feel too much when the adrenalin is running hard & fast and they are such sooks. Plaster casts, no but I will have a go at anything twice.

    I was thinking black powder but too noisy and way too much damage. I always look for the easy alternative. Lazy these days due to disc probs.

    Try Karvea 300mg. Works wonders. I only take a half. Much more economical but dont tell my Doc

    My passion is opal. My dad, bless his soul, first dragged me out to White Cliffs August 1970 & that was both of us hooked. Went back every year after for about 12 maybe more years except for a couple of trips overseas. I have all the gear to cut & polish. I would take a few pics to show but all is buried deep inside 20 footer. Another reason I need to get going north as I have so much to cut and finish b4 I meet the furnace.

    exercise works resting BP 180/140 @ 120 BPM after 10 push ups 80/40 @ 250+ BPM seems to be a worry for a 50 + er the kicker is three days with no sleep every thing is fine 120/80 @ 68 BPM resting :shock ps. that is with a lethal amount of caffeine each of the three days !!
