They will more likely end up in a tree :) few errant fibers that will get snipped.

Awesome. One of you should hopefully hook up. Just try to stop Ben tying on anything with a /0 after it and you'll be fine.

Hahaha! The thing is the steel like some pretty huge stuff at times, it is just setting the hook with a big iron.

Beautiful day here, sun, afternoon off, opened up the doors, a dude playing chilled jazzy/ blues saxophone on the street, sitting tying...will add a blue charm which failed a bit but will swim.

They're on about plastic money over here. Say it lasts 2 to 3 X longer than paper stuff. But the coloured coins got to be costing a small fortune for tax payers adding a dye to various coins??

I prefer the plastic money coming from Aus we had it since the early 90's, and it makes sense you can go for a surf with money in your pocket, or wash your jeans and not have lint disaster. Yeah funny with the coloured coins there are entire series of them and not too sure why loads of different quarters with printing on them. We also just turfed the penny so maybe the copper helped pay for the mint to do up colourful stuff, or someone has been into the mushrooms? I might just have to ask google...
