Hope this helps.

HTH= hope this helps

If leather is oiled or treated it will wipe clean from the finished surface. The suede looking surface will stain . Ox blood is/was used to dye leather red I think human blood is likely to stain as well.

Heh, woops. Acronyms - more brevity, less clarity

Let me tell you folks, waking up to strange noises and your bed shaking due to an earthquake is quite a shocker.

We don't get many here in the north. Also, you are always very confused when waking up. And I've been indulging in some horror entertainment lately.

I don't associate the bed shaking and strange noises with horror... more with hopeful anticipation, but yes earthquakes can be quite bemusing.

The only quakes I've experienced were in places where they're unusual: New Hampshire, Virginia, and here in Georgia. Another area where I am statistically unusual is that a disproportionately large number of my acquaintances have been hurt or killed by terrorists, and I am not counting Soldiers in combat. Over 13 people!
1 on the plane over Lockerbie; 2 in a building blown up in Saudi Arabia; 2 killed in the World Trade Center; 1 killed in a bombing in Jordan; the list goes on.

I'm in a boring meeting, it's freezing inside this room (stupid heating not working, apparently, despite how many buttons we press), I can't change my signature here because profiles are down too.... ARGH!

I just want to go home, lay in my sofa and finish my books, I've got only about 50 pages left - I might leave work earlier, didn't have a lunch break anyway ::)

Lazed out of bed around 11 pottered round the house and am now out to buy presents and go and see nephew and nieces. However I will pay for my slothfulness when I have to be up at 04:45 for work on Sunday.

I was mildly hungover this morning, so I decided to postpone my heavy workout until tomorrow. On the brighter side I've gotten a lot of school reading done today and yesterday, and I've finished one of the books well ahead of schedule. Also, after a whole lot of fleshing out the plot I'm ready to start my next series.

I need to ignore the fear and use my drill later today, to install the blackout blinds - light is definitely waking me up far earlier than I need to >:(

Anyone knows that if I want to use 3.5mm screws, which size hole should I drill? Same or the next size up?
