Does the A10 take a lot of power to taxi?

Nope. It's 75 outside right now, and was 90 last week.

If it snows here...it's the end of the world Mate!

Ugh ... who ordered all that snow ?

My SFO -> LHR -> ABZ flight is already delayed 2+ hrs. Good thing I had a 5 hr gap planned at LHR before the flight to Aberdeen.

A-10 would need a whole lot of power as the legs are still not on the floor!

Guy just in here says I should stick my Lambert T32 on the Graupner Electro trainer for tomorrow....MMMMmmm

We think that 4 Flash's running flat out can melt a strip in quick time.

Gordon...No snow in Abz yet, so you might make it

Managed to drive 65miles to work only my 3 day this month I was the only one stupid enough to come in today Now I'm stuck on a red sea standby. Flying toy aeroplanes is sooooooo much better than the real thing!

Hope you all have a good Christmas!

No snow here... (more like Florida minus the bird-sized mosquitoes)

Good thing Hanuka doesn't need to be white


Happy holidays to all!

Merry Christmas to all and Happy Holidays from Puerto Rico.

You aint the 1st to say that today.

I got into work @ 2pm. The rest of them already @ work all blokes I work with.
They commented what time you call this.
I said there was a good 6inches down my way - my mini dont like it. I drive a go kart (mini).
They pi$$ed their selves - It dont like it does it. I wished I didnt say anything at that stage!

As I drove in the yard the car was going sideways - so it was believeable! But 2 hours at work for a days pay can't complain - even with the banter!

Merry Christmas Dunc

I hope you enjoy your White Christmas Laura.There is a snowflake's chance in hell of being a White Christmas here in Victoria, Australia. It's going to be about 35 degrees C (95 F) here. We enjoy swimming and barbeques etc over the Christmas break, but I would swap it all for the chance of a White Christmas just once.
