If you Google "bottle of cheap Bordeaux" (in quotes) this thread shows up. It's on page 3, but it's there!
We have a job to do, then!

Careful with it. As Seneca said: "He who has great power should use it lightly."

I went to page three, but I couldn't find it since I am wearing my wine googles ... or is that, goggles ?!

Anyway, there was a revelation to be found ... THIS THREAD IS ABOUT A CAMERA !!!

I think that I have been hood-winked ...
Now, that one is just too far out

So after nearly a week of couch/cot surfing & wearing out our welcomes amongst our family & friends, I'm very relieved & happy to report that the new pole's installation & wiring met the county inspector's codes & we're reconnected! In the immortal words of Prince Adam, "I have the power!"
I thought that it was ... "I've GOT the power!"

probably from the stamping of grapes for the cheap Bordeaux wines, the feet in that area are 357.214mm (roughly 14.06354331 imperial inches)
Makes sense to me...

dwarfed by the feet of Cremona, Austria. They somehow found out that feet were 480mm (18.9") long
They must have stomped some HUGE grapes!

Mr Parallax, sir! I don't mean to be imprudent or anything, but you have used the wrong search phrase. If you instead google "cheap bottles of Bordeaux" you'll find us on the first page.

Remember, with great power comes great responsibility!


PS: A retired friend just got home from a month (or more) of staying with family. He said the first thing they were going to do was walk around touching things and saying "this is mine, this is mine, this is mine, too..."

But which kind of power did Amy get, great or absolute? I'm not familiar with Alabama utility companies.
