Gents,

Considering how uncomfortably warm it must be Down Under right now (or in N.Z, Brazil or S.A., and maybe Norway, for that matter), I thought it would be only right to offer an invitation for you to come visit me up here outside Chicago. There is a fine Irish pub with patio seating where they really know how to draw a Guinness.

I like the "feels like -26". I've no idea what that feels like.

 Thanks Richard, that's nice of you- FREE GUINNESS PICTURES...?..... It's dropped to mid 20's here ˚C with a cyclone on it's way, so good Guinness drawing weather....there's actually pubs here where we can buy it in liquid form in mugs, rather than drawn in 'pitchers'... *smile*

Thanks mate. Just need to book a berth on an icebreaker.
MMM feels like minus 32 C, you'd have a hard time keeping the beer liquid.

Richard,

I feel your pain being only 300 miles south!  I also have 8 inches of the white fluffy anti-motorcycle crap on the ground.  I'm working on two of my bikes in the shop right now, so the itch for spring is killing me!

Stay warm,

Joe

At those temperatures, aren't the beer more likely to come in blocks? ;-)

Hope you've got a few "blocks" duTch. Marcia might weaken by the time she gets to you.

 Haha- if I did, I'd be straight up on those hard rough bits- ...still have to fix it anyway, from when it went walkabout a few years ago, apparently it's a good board *eek* but I've only used it a few times. I'll have to fix it and leave it at the youngsters place, he's living at Alex Head 2min. walk to the beach

I think surfers in Oz an NZ must be made of different stuff than those of Malibu and Santa Monica where I did my body surfing back in the day. I tried the board a few times and ultimately had the one upright ride that allows me to say "Yeah, I surf."
