I can't believe this thread is still going..............

Much as I'd like to say "And that's why I won't buy a k-3" I have to say I bought a k-3. And a k-3II. And a k-1.
Can't fault your thinking on the K-3ii and the K-1.

Glad to see you here...for however long it is before the hociR gets you. So many have gone missing that there is hardly any doubt as to what happened to them......every one bought a K3.

Nope. That's right at the top of the smellometer.

I worked it out: Pentaxdude is a psychologist conducting an experiment on all of us just to find out what we would do with the originating post.

Sorry, Pentaxdude, you violated the requirements for research ethics so you cannot use any of this thread content in your reports of your research. You did not obtain documented informed consent from all of us.

Then you will need to work overtime to make more. At least you do not live in a famous country to the east of where you live where your trade union would tell you that was too much like hard work - and stop you.

Well, I don't like it. Ri-coh sounds too Spanish. We all know what they are like. ;-)



OMG I'd totally buy that!

Ha! We did a whole packet tonight. Some, for lunch tomorrow, and the rest for the pasta dinner, this evening. Busy night. Had Teacher / Parent interviews for both kids.

Well, around midnight I went and opened an Aldi pre-cooked package and did 10 more slices in the microwave. I ate 4, and feeling guilty, took the other 6 out to the raccoons that were playing on the back deck. Big raccoon smiles all around! My raccoon is not all that good, they are not big talkers, just big eaters, but I swear I heard them chanting...HAIL BACON!

Mrs Rupert, who has to work, went to bed around 10pm and when I got in bed at 1am she said "it's hard to sleep with that bacon smell...is any left?"
When I told her the raccoons got the last 6 slices I cooked, it was..."Damn raccoons!"

I think I can get out a few pots & pans, call in a dozen squirrels and 4-5 raccoons and do even better. I can't do all that hopping around but Mrs Rupert can, she does that Zumba stuff 2-3 time a week.

I saw them perform live and it sounded good to me! You should feel honored to have a band somewhere named after you kitchen full of Velveeta (and bacon).

Here is one to entertain Racer: Aircraft engine falls off truck in Sydney, driver charged - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) .

I drove along that road just a couple of weeks ago. I had just been to a flat pack furniture shop nearby.
