Bolor, yes, a blower with an electric starter can be quite helpful. When I had a blower back in the mid-80's, I was told to invest in a blower with this sort of starter.

I wish I had done that too, but the machine is 28 years old and probably not worth spending the money on. When it's really cold, I put an electric heater in front of the starter cord for a while to warm it up a bit

Bolor, we don't get the bitterly cold nights as you do in Timmins. Still, it is an easier start with the electric starter. As well, my blower was an 8HP and that is not strong enough for the wet St.John's snow. 10-12HP, with a dual-blower system is the only thing that will work effectively with out kind of snow.

Uh oh, do I detect a little tightness in that remark?

Surely after 28 years it is time to retire that thing and get a new one with an electric start. You have certainly earned it Bolor!

And yes I know, please stop calling you Shirley!

This quote from the "nicer" thread. Wouldn't want anyone to renege on a promise!

I'm not sure just what mark a teacher should give the student who offered this solution to a math problem. I mean technically, isn't the student correct?

Sinc, drinks are on the house. And, because you are here, we shall serve something a bit stronger than apple juice this time around.

Sinc, yes, semantically speaking, the student would have a case. "Find the value of x" would have been more appropriate.

Too bad they had not included Marc of Chez Marc's Restaurant, Emporium and Doxieville NL Enterprises in the poll. Bet he would have ranked right up there!
