You're just being shellfish!
It's a great way to build mussels, though.
The person below me uses their Airstream as an excuse to go fishing.

Umm...My "big" collection is in miniature, I have 6 of them in an N scale trailer park on my model railroad...

hi codybear, if you mean "couch potato-itus" you are right! it is sleeting here and ready to start snowing and it is so depressing that i can't work up the oomph to get it and get done some much-need stuff! how are things in sacramento? our daughter and son-in-law used to live in lodi and work in stockton and by pleasanton and we flew into sacramento when we came to see them.

the person below me thinks aluminum is the most precious metal...

Here's the scoop on 'aluminum':


Properties of Aluminum (from the wikipedia)




Aluminium(Al) (or aluminum in North American English; see spelling below) is a silvery and ductile member of the poor metal group of chemical elements. Its atomic number is 13. Aluminium is found primarily as the ore bauxite and is remarkable for its resistance to oxidation (due to the phenomenon of passivation), its strength, and its light weight. Aluminium is used in many industries to make millions of different products and is very important to the world economy. Structural components made from aluminium are vital to the aerospace industry and very important in other areas of transportation and building in which light weight, durability, and strength are needed.Aluminium is a soft, lightweight metal with normally a dull silvery appearance caused by a thin layer of oxidation that forms quickly when the metal is exposed to air. Aluminium oxide has a higher melting point than pure aluminium. Aluminium is nontoxic (as the metal), nonmagnetic, and nonsparking. It has a tensile strength of about 49 megapascals (MPa) in a pure state and 400 MPa as an alloy. Aluminium is about one-third as dense as steel or copper; it is malleable, ductile, and easily machined and cast. It has excellent corrosion resistance and durability because of the protective oxide layer.
Aluminium is one of the few metals which retains full silvery reflectance, even in finely powdered form, which makes it a very important component of silver paints.
Aluminium's crystal stracture is an FCC stracture, Hence the high ductility of the pure metal.
Aluminium mirror finish has the highest reflectance of any metal in the 200–400 nm (UV) and the 3000–10000 nm (far IR) regions, while in the 400–700 nm visible range it is slightly outdone by silver and in the 700–3000 (near IR) by silver, gold, and copper. It is the second-most malleable metal (after gold) and the sixth-most ductile. Aluminium is a good thermal and electrical conductor. Aluminium is capable of being a superconductor, with a superconducting critical temperature of 1.2 Kelvin.



The person below me now loves aluminum more than ever!

That's impossible.

The person below me gets fleet insurance rates for his Airstreams.

Hi, No. I sing "On the road again".

The person below me sings "It's a small world".
