Re: first and last trip of the season

Zelph If it''s a cousin to firewater then yes - we have lots :shock: . In truth, we do have fireweed though I didn't see any. I suspect it was too late in a very dry season and too soon.

first and last trip of the season

Hi all, I've been off forum for most of the summer; busy time of year in business and I've also been preparing for an upcoming kidney transplant.

Unintended Bargain - Storage Bonanza

Hi All, I like to stay organized and I've stumbled across a "neat" solution. I'm designing packaging prototypes for a new product for my business. I decided that clear plastic tubing might be the answer. So I googled 5 or 6 plastic tubing providers with sample requests for specific packagi...
