Mr. Burns - I'm not going to say "Please don't go" I think we all need a break. But your wonderful insanity made sanity out of this insanity if that makes any sense.

Burns? Who? What? Never heard of him....



Kidding. I'll miss your insight and humor. Here's to much success and happiness in whatever comes your way, JB.

OK, the smartass above will doubtless ask if I live under a stone as well. Answer, no. I work for a living, have small kids and ride, climb and play music when I have some time. Plus read MO when I can. So, smartass, do you live glued to a computer with no bike to ride and no sex life, or what?



So, having missed the gossip because of having to live in my real world, can someone explain what is going on here? Why is Mr Burns leaving? Seems to me like yesterday he arrived, or am i just getting senile? The rest of the crew here will mean I'll renew but one of the best will be missing.

Thanks. All is clear now.



Shame, though.

Yeah...uh...don't let the door hit you on the way out.



No really, thanks John. See to me, this life, it's all about how much sleep you can get before the alarm goes off. Is your alarm sounding John, can you hear me John? Beep, beep my friend. Beep, beep.

Good luck JB. You will be missed. Hope you'll drop by and visit with us from time to time, share some thoughts and of course your excellent communications on the ubiquitous frustrational manifestations of all our ridiculously pathetic lives and the SOB's that make them such. PS Although I consider myself a decent "Shade tree" mechanic, decided to not go for the used MB, thanks for sharing your pain. PPS Have a good one.

What the frig happened to Blip and all the original crew anyway? As for JB he was only here 2 minutes including travelling time. Can MO not make enough money to keep you employed? I paid the fee (in hard earned New Zealand dollars - I needed a lot to pay US$11.94) and must say you haven't kept us very well informed as far as what's going on at MO. You gotta keep in touch with your customers especially if you want us to renew when the time comes.



Cheers
