    Calling all Flat guys that includes you Larry

    I been a bit negligent in getting this posted here for which i trully apologize.

    So here goes there is a contest taking place that is open to all comers. Yup for a change its Flat workers and Spinny guys in a Birdhouse Showdown.

    I aint gonna repeat the long list of Hinglish, French or Japanese rules here, you can get to see them on this thread.

    Now we want to see 100% turnout among the flat guys. Dont let the spinny guys get away with winning this one. You can enter both categories flat and spinny if you like.

    May the contest begin, or lets here the excuses for not entering and you will have to explain it to Don the resident Sherrif.
    cheers

    You should have stopped at "got no time", that's the one I'm using too...
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    I will have to pass on any efforts outside of gift finishing. Couldn't we do this in February???

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    What Larry said, except I do like birds - some of the bigger ones taste pretty good when they're roasted.

    Anyway - not interested.
