    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Ha ha ha ha there are days Eeebees when your cooking makes me want to eat when I really don't need to eat. I swear December was a five kilo month.

    ...I have to say I was considerably restrained in my consumption of food on Christmas Day...except for my sister's trifle...red wine jelly with chocolate sponge with a chocolate slurry...then she made it even worse by putting whipped cream and flaked almonds on the top...

    I am hearing you. My wife made a trifle using almond fingers, blackberries, boysenberries, cream fresh, Greek yoghurt and of course some booze. I ate the lions share.

    Another fresh new year is here, another year to live! To banish worry, doubt and fear, to love and laugh and give!

    May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your face, the rain fall soft upon your fields.
    Happy New Year every one

    Thanks Driverman but I am sure most of us on here would prefer the wind in our face.

    Yes but have you ever sat opposite a Waikato drinker in the middle throes of a fart fit.
