  1. on Saturday night…

  2. I would stay up if it was as a reasonable time… but at 4 am… it’s not going to happen. Your European “fans” deeply saddened.

    Two questions:

    I see a cds cell on a data logger that appears to be in the fridge. Does this mean that you’ve finally answered the age old question? Do the lights stay on, or do they turn off when you close the door?

    Also, when will the macadamia butter be for sale in the store? – That sounds delicious!

  4. george, great questions to ask during the chat 😀

    I was only kidding about the macadamia butter – but if you really want me to ask!

  6. That’s my ugly Butane soldering iron up there. That poor iron has seen some better days. So who won anyways?
