      A friend of mine is fond of saying that there is no such thing as bad weather, just poor clothing choices. He's mostly right, I think, where winter is concerned. But in summer, you can only cool off so much through clothing (or lack thereof)! Nice work, Doug!

      Ugh! I hate mud work! The rest I don't mind, but I am completely incompetent with mudding. People who know how to do it make it look so easy and then I end up making waves of mud that has to be sanded forever to make it even. Nice work, Doug - you're a better man than me!
