A good thunderstorm blew through yesterday. The Neighbo(u)rs shed got the worst of it.

If it is a problem, it's that I have too many interests! Photography, cycling, camping, fishing, spending time with my kids and grandkids doing all those things, fixing stuff around the property (never ending from compressors to light switches), scanning in slides and old pictures from my parents, and the list goes on.

Honestly, I will end up being busier when I retire.

I have now seen, more than once, folks from the American South speaking English on a news broadcast or a documentary with english subtitles. And for the most part, those subtitles are required!

Oh I know, but the Dragonfly, with it's second valve makes it easy. Very nice when baking corn bread...no threat of burning.

I ended up buying the Whisperlite after my stove at the time, a Bleuet Micro Plus, running on Propane/Butane, failed me while winter camping. Luckily a friend camping with us had a Whisperlite...I fell in love. :) I also own an MSR Dragonfly which can simmer (very difficult to do with the Whisperlite) but sounds like a 747 taking off.

I was always amazed in German class when some folks refused to change their idea of vowel sounds for the German language and maintained the "American" sound to everything they read. For me, Bahnhof was an easy one, BAWNhoff....others....BAN-HOFF. Oh well. The Swiss German dialect had some really difficult throat action going on. A Swiss friend of mine tried to teach me their "Kitchen Cupboard" word...lots of spitting and hacking in that one!

After living in Switzerland for a while, many words took on a different pronunciation. Wagner became Vahgnuh and not WAG-Nur ...and my friend Beat was not beet but Beh-ATT...oh, and for some reason, I have always said Rah-Thuh instead of Raa-thur when saying rather...maybe my Mom's English english?

My MSR Whisperlite International (multi-fuel) is the same, it uses the flame to heat the fuel thereby vaporizing it under any conditions.

My Yamaha Exciter II snowmobile had that option. You could direct hot coolant through the carb to keep it from icing up.

Hats for different purposes. Greasy work hat, general baseball cap to hide the hair, warm hiking hat, wide brimmed paddling and gardening hat, oiled and waterproofed camping hat, oh yeah, and the minus stoopid hat.

They make an TRD offroad version here with a shorter wheelbase, a slightly taller stance, no air dams, better approach/departure angles, and a locking rear diff. Not a Jeep but with a good set of tires, a very capable offroad machine. And it's not a Chrysler :lol:
