Off the subject a little, I was searching for pool supplies the other day and ran across a pool place in your town. I thought you were joking with Sarnia. I never looked it up but it came up in my search. Where is it in Ont? I have been to North Bay. but that is it!:D

jbetts...Even though this has to do with gasoline and petroleum, it is in an off the topic of TF's petroleum forum. Hence I've moved it to off topic.

J hate to rain on your parade jbetts but it will not make much different. The email is a hoax. Most Americans don't have the back bone or political will to cut back on much of anything much less gasoline.

The way gas prices are going I wish I could buy more yesterday! If you don't go on the 17th it might be another $.08- $0.10 on the 18th!

I am tentatively suppose to close on the property Wednesday. I have been cutting grass to the point of seeing green. It rained so much last week; today was the first day I was able to start catching up. On top of that, my satellite TV system stopped working and had to replace the reciever...........or so I thought. Turns out it was 2 shorted wires and a wasp nest partially blocking the signal. I upgraded to the DSR 922 4DTV reicever. It is NICE! I can't believe all of the channels it gets. I am gonna be on a tight rope until next week. Hopefully things will slow down then.

Stew, it would be bad form to say much more about it until I have the deed in hand with my signature on it. Hopefully that will be the case tomorrow morning. When I get back, I will post some really beautiful pictures and let the cat out of the bag. Plus posting all of the pictures will sure help my post count. It has been sagging below 20 lately and that is also bad form. :D ;)
