Re: Drilling holes in rocks - Help

I have a Bosch and it's one of the best investments I've made.

Re: "Put it in 'R' for Race"

Re: Merry Christmas

This Christmas has been under a pall for me. My partner of 12 years underwent brain surgery on 12/12 for a glioblastoma. The bottom line here is : "She will die from this."

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

Just last night, I 'missed' a step walking from my 2nd floor to my 1st, and took a tumble.
