And sailors buy shares in oil companies so they can feel they are at least getting something back for all they spend on diesel.
There's a reason why McGregors are the Provincial duck up here in BC...
Hoffa you and your Mrs. would like it here in the mountains on the east coast. The wind starts to pick up in November and blow all the leaves off of the trees and you get these drifts of leaves in the forests, on hillsides, etc, and they all breeze around making noise and getting into everything. That happens again in mid-February when the sun starts to warm up and the atmosphere gets unstable into March, again the winds pick up and those same leaves come out of hiding and blow all over the place. You make swishy sounds here when you walk because there are so many leaves all over the place, and it is very pretty besides.
