George (Sir),

Time to get over the blushing period. Crikey, as Jeff would say, congratulations.

Jim

Thanks for the toast Jeff. Once again, a hearty laugh on my side. I keep wondering that if we met, would we be immediately best friends, or dislike each other completely. I choose to believe the former. Nothing better than humor to create friendships, eh?

CJ - I baked my 5th batch of ciabatta using your recipe during my "day off". I was a little short on the biga, so I just improvised until the hydration looked right - really sticky stuff. It turned out really well. Thanks for all your efforts on the e-book. I will learn it like the "Apprentice" in the near future.

The blushing period is over. Back to biz.

Sir George of Longview.
Mate, I've only met, and welcomed into our hovel, one person from this internet thingy. An old pric, ex truckie, pre that he had enjoyed a hard and devious living.Appalling table manners (same as mine, hehehe).
And now a friend.
I don't anticipate a recurrence.
GTB, you're gilt edged. Mate I'm lead lined.
The only way you and I would ever hook up would be in my environment: probably desert. And I reckon (for a Navvy, eh) you'd do ok.
Chuck me into your Social Circles, and it would be terribly unconfortable.
To summarise Sir George, I reckon you'll do me for a mate.

Your call.
teach.

I can't reach the logs with my gloved hand so I use a simple garden tool. It's a simple four prong cultivator. It doesn't pick up the logs but does a great job wrangling the logs.

Heads up! These don't come up very often. I'm not going for it because I think the shipping is overpriced, but for someone in Chicagoland, it might be just the thing:

People,
I think I hear what's being said. (And I'll probly get another belt in the lug for this post also).
sin loi.
P.Police has a garden variety solution.
Dmun seems more upmarket, but with feet firmly planted in reality.
Me?
I'd LOVE (Love love love)to have a forged clinker-grabber artifact, but what are the chances?
Zilch.
So I steal the design and make my own. Will look like crap, but will do the job. I'd guess A$10.
Beer income, but sham pain lifestyle eh. hahaha.
Love you mob.

Dmun,
I saw it too...having rather selfish thoughts, I wasn't going to mention it on the forum until after the auction ended. I agree, the shipping is more than high, which may keep me away as well; even though I've been searching for exactly this item for months.
Jeff may have a good idea, steal the concept and make your own, may give it a shot myself.

Thanks DMUN!
I honestly did not know they made such an animal.
I live in Chicagoland and shipping is just under $20.
HIGH SEAS PIRACY!, I exclaim.
I'll keep an eye on it to see what it goes for.
(Secretly, I'm sure we'll all be bidding)
