    In my defence I can only refer you to this thread Jason.

    Posted as you may notice whilst you were still dossing in your hammock.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    As for you my dear Comte, as allies of the Colonists, you should have been there to wish them well on this day. Instead of sniggering in the corner, the very least that you can do to make amends is to send them a huge statue with a torch in her hand.

    It's true, I missed it. You caught me sleeping like a Hessian on Christmas morning.

    "AMERICA: We'll murder you in your sleep on Christmas."


    I'm going to avoid thinking too hard about your talc reference.

    It certainly did not seem funny at the time either Jason. It took ages to vac it out of the textured grass on the playing surface.

    If your textured grass is a washable sheet, I suppose that you could try using salt for snow. Sugar would be too sticky.
