    Careful! The DCT models can be very addictive...

    I have a funny bear story in BC. I Was on my bike and stopped at a road construction area and was being waved through by a flagger who did not realize that a bear was crossing the road about 40 feet behind her. I kept trying to point to the bear and she kept on being annoyed at my failure to move. When she finally looked around she almost spotted herself when she saw the bear. Fortunately the bear kept going and all I could do was ride away.

    Problem solved!

    Ha! it won't be long and you will have more infrastructure than you need.
    Dragging your house with you. Of course it will let you pick up one of those stray dogs you've met along the way and bring them with you.

    Or it’ll be one of Neda’s rare posts saying “Gene isn’t available right now”.
