After posting and starting this thread I went out to cut an elderly's lawn of a neighbour using his tractor. His property is on a step hill side and I criss cross laterally the hillside at a steep angle. More or less hiking out as if on a sailboat to maintain stability.

I misjudged a turn & the tractor capsized the last thing I was able to do was kill the blade. It more or less rolled over me.

Besides my ego the only damage is my right side which is now a vivid abstract of blue and black. The effing tractor is fine. John Deere makes a strong tractor.

It could have been allot worse for that I am grateful. And I can safely say to Andrew that I have a minor addiction to Ibuprofen, not sure if that will influence my posts.

If at all possible I would prefer to look at the things that unite us.

Does that mean that you think that Andrew is a dumbass?

I do, I think he is a complete dumbass.

Here in bleak Yorkshire, we have a colleague over from San Francisco, missing Thanksgiving and depressed because of the wind, rain and lack of daylight!

We're thinking of getting him a líghtbox.

Interesting, you type líghtbox and it puts msmoby, do I win a prize?

I'm sensing that.
