kryptonjohn: Seems like a gift for the Mrs with all the jobs you'll be able to do around the house.
So no loss of credits here.

 

 

 

HAHA, nope... Ryobi is my home fixing things, all 14 of them. Chainsaws, petrol brush-cutter etc. 

 

These are going to work. :)

 

 

 

Edit: We have a few acres, and a massive 80yo stone cottage, so a drill and stuff is almost useless around the house. 

 

Weed killing, and fencing, and water tanks makes the Mrs happy money-mouth

Going to the Dentist to replace a large filling which had fallen out and:

 

No injections

 

No drilling

 

No pain

 

And only cost $45.00!

 

Put a smile on my face.

"German cheese cake" is the 'currency' in our company to get processes speeded up or priorized. Regardless the colleague is from Asia, France, Germany, UK or somewhere else. Is it clearer now? ;-)
