Now if you "check twice", you only have to cut once!

Welcome to the forum.

Cleaning my glasses will not make me look any better.
But will make what I am looking at better!

Well, not Central PA at all. I'm a Pittsburger, land of sun and fun (but kinda light on the sun and fun actually).

We live in a Biiiiiiiiig state!

Had great steaks at JT's, fried clams at the little hole-in-the-wall bar across the street from the American fire company #1 in Tamaqua (where our sales engineer from KME was a member), and had way too many Yenglings and other such rot-gut at Molly's. Molly's as you may know, is periously close (stumbling distance) from your room at the Inn at Jim Thorpe---it's in the basement!
