We made it back

Post by BrianT » Mon May 28, 2012 7:37 am

Well we are back at home after our trip to China and Thailand,
and we are really looking forward to going to work today. :lol:

Our trip was a great success, Pat and I saw so much its had to say what the best part was.

Our trip home was a little long, left our hotel in the Gulf of Thailand at 8:30 pm (est) on Thursday 24th May
arrived home at 4:15 pm (est) on Saturday 26th May. About 15 hrs of that was waiting time at airports of ferry terminals.
Due to all our flights going west we ended up flying completely around the world.

Welcome back, brother! Looks like you had a good time. Love the pic of Pat and the Panda.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Rabbit.

I do agree, the font colour is not the best. Can anybody tell me how to change it
on the attachments.

Mike, I don't think you can do that with the attachments. I was just ribbin' ya', Gary. I can barely see it myself on the home computer.

I don't know why, but everytime I see those terra cotta dudes I have the urge to grab a bowling ball and let it fly.

Welcome back!
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."
