    Oh no, he was the one that got me on this site and gave me a lot of help on the twins forum. I am truly sorry to hear of his passing. I wish I could have met him in person. He seemed to be a great guy.
    RIP Peter

  • Shoe update, copied from KZR:

    “Today’s report on shoe is that he is resting comfortably and responding to pain management. He is experiencing some kidney problems because of the trauma from the accident, but they are addressing that at this time. He is not quite out of the woods yet.”

    “but ron …i was only telling the truth”

    Well, since silence can be taken as ascent, I guess you ARE correct, sir.:-D

    BTW, Does anyone know if Jones is a Welsh sirname? Years ago someone told me that “Jones” was the Welsh word for “Smith” as in blacksmith, silversmith, tinsmith…etc

  • Hey Gerosh, wow I didn’t think I’d ever see this post again:). Let’s see if I can answer some of your questions. Although I did install a new chain @ the same time as I changed the sprockets, I kept the stock link #’s, I might add a link on a future chain but the stock length is fine, right now. The 17T sprocket is about the maximun size if you…[Read more]

    Thanks for the replies and comments. I now know where Cardiff is and at 2 least peoples reason for the good Dr’s repeated visits. 😀
    Although I did figure there would be a couple of replies to WhipKwak’s characterizations of Welshmen.

  • snakey replied to the topic Where is Cardiff in the forum Off Topic 10 years, 7 months ago

    And while I’m on my confusion w/Britan. Why is King John (Lackland), such a historical “persona non grata”? So much so, that there has never been another John, in the “ruling family”. He’s the guy that signed the Magna Carta, which is the basis for limiting the Kings power and setting up the Houses of Lords & Commons as well as the grandad of…[Read more]

    I heard on the news, y’all got a bit of an earthquake, (5.5) the other day. Did any of y’all feel it?

  • snakey replied to the topic just had a thought in the forum Off Topic 10 years, 9 months ago

    I saw a history program awhile back. The program said that the “invention” of the mixed drink came about during the US prohibition. By mixing w/different flavorings, you could hide the taste of bad alcohol, a lot of that bad alcohol was methanol.
