    No pressure
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    you live in minnesota, how come a little cold and snow bother you so much?
    Id think any temps above 10 degrees F and you would be out there in a tee shirt making sawdust.

    That's one of my problems. I was board with chess. However, I did beat my oldest son, Greg, once in two moves...YAHOO!

    Enjoy,
