Everybody better bring in the brass monkeys tonight!! And that French bacon has the date backwards on it!!
So in Des Moines you have 22 months in the year ?
In the land of Oz we also write the date dd/mm/yy.
And every time we buy a computer one of the first tasks is to made the date format right (for us).
Fortunately, and we are ever so grateful , Mr Gates does give us the option!
I'm pretty sure that the K3, if I was to buy one, would also allow the correct date format; thanks Hicor/Choir/Whatever.

Feeling lonely Joel?

And what about 12 fluid onces = 1 cup ... 2 cups = 1 pint ... 2 pints = 1 quart, ... etc.
And what about 16 inches = 1 foot ... 3 feet = 1 yard ... 1760 yards = 1 mile, ... etc.
And 3 strikes = "out" ... 4 balls = "walk" ... a "balk" = advance of a base, except for the batter ... but yes, if "beaned", etc.

All good reasons not to get a K-3, since it doesn't calculate conversions nor answer the essential questions of life in its "Menu" function.

Not too bad here this morning. Only -2 and no snow. I don't mind the cold. Cold air doesn't need to be shoveled.

Love the Hee Haw link, Joel. One of the best, and classiest, tv shows ever!

Meh. Polar Bear Club requires a lot of bare skin and a lot of liquid water.

Roll on the ice maybe, before the liquid water part.

And at least one actual polar bear, to make things interesting!

No polar bears here. Not even very cold so I am pretty sure they would be a bit surly anyway. No K3s either. (or K5 Mk IIIs...or whatever they're called today.)

Scrambled eggs and bacon with cheese on top though! And coffee (thank goodness)
