Re: Ooh, new shooting truck

Bruce, I read an article many years ago by that long haired businessman who was head of the cbi or something, he was quite an astute business man.

Re: Coyotes attacked my dog!

To be honest, if it was my dogs that got attacked I'd take a different route. Set up a bait station that will keep them there, anchor the bait down.

Re: Ooh, new shooting truck

I can speak from my own experience of working in several countries in Africa where all the Land Rovers I saw (and there were quite a few) were lying discarded in junk heaps whereas I didn't see any Landcruisers in junk heaps.

I used to make these 20 odd years ago when they were a new thing, like everything else though once more and more make them the prices bottoms out.
