    It would be nice but not worth my name being plastered all over the place.

    Heck, I entered with no qualms. I'd let them plaster my name on the Goodyear blimp over the Rose Bowl for just one of those tools. They can do whatever they want with my name and picture if they want to give me the whole kit.

    I see that they do not accept Canadian adresses.

    Oh well, I already have all those tools except the Domino and I don't like the extreme glittter of Los Vegas.

    Frank, did you mean Las Vegas or Loss Vegas? Either is considered correct.

    You've definitely got a pretty good "green" setup already.

    I was attempting a bit of humour with Los Vegas, but the way I wrote it, it might be takes as a spelling mistake -Loss Vegas is better.

    I like that even better Dick. And, will, no doubt, use the term myself now.

    I used to know a guy that made money on every trip to LV.
    He is a gemologist & went around to all the pawn shops & picked & chose from the best diamonds & other fine stones found in pawned jewelery & was able to buy them at fairly cheap prices because of the glut of jewelery pawned to get home after the person lost all their money. He brought it home & sold some as it & other stones he put in his own settings to sell. He told me it started when he was down there on a short trip for the military & went in to check out what was being pawned. He started doing it as a hobby & now had to declare it on taxes because it makes him enough to contribute a nice sum to his retirement fund every year.
