    Might have to take you up on it. I've been wanting to visit Australia for several years now. I keep looking over vacation packages to your country and I AM going to get there one of these days! It's on my list of places I want to visit.

    Michael, welcome! I think a completely upside down, opps sorry, I meant "down under" perspective will be a breath of fresh air. We're a pretty fun bunch of folks here.

    I think you've seen the troublemakers on this site (me, KurtV, KTDave, Matt4x4 for example), the Brainiacks (me, Jasonlion, Waterbear and ChemGeek, who we're looking to nominate for the next presidential election - you all can decide which will be President and which will be VP), Industry Pros (me, Waterbear, Waste, thepoolguy), and the just plain nice (me, Mermaid Queen, Buggsw, SeanB).

    As much as you're h earing us say it's so hot and rainy here, it's in the 40's down there, isn't it?
