Thanks, Miguel. I know I need to get back to you about that second Boiler. I sent it over uninvited, so I'm really happy with any decision you make. If you have particularly deserving friend, f...

Re: Signed up

I'll be going down on either Thursday or Friday, so if anyone from the Pittsburgh area wants a ride, I'm glad to offer it. Too bad you're on the other side of our wide state, Tom. Bu...
