@Wnderer: You should get the old BBC Quatermass episodes playing on those old TVs

I remember seeing the one about the invasion from Mars when I was a kid -- it scared me silly!!!

@David: I have thoughts of throwing everything up and coming over there to take it over from them.

I had to read this twice -- I think over here it might be better to say "throwing everything over" or "giving everything up" ... LOL

I know just what you mean -- the thought of offering to take over had crossed my mind (of course, I use the term "mind" in the loosest sense) also...

@Max - I have thoughts of throwing everything up and coming over there to take it over from them.    But just now I'll wake up and my coffee will be cold......

@David: That sounds like very sad news.

There's certainly a little tear rolling down my cheek. I think the owners just want to retire, and there simply isn't enough business to make it attractive enough to stay. I'm going to email them to tell them Rick and I are coming down, so to get theit best stuff out :-)

@Max - "Mock Electronics is closing down in the New Year".   That sounds like very sad news.    Don'cha hate it when you just discover somewhere like that and they go and close down?  If I was you I'd be heartbroken.....  why is this happening, do you know?  It sounded like they had lots of tasty stuff and there are a few guys like you (and Rick) around to patronise them?  I wish I was not so far away, I'd come and help relieve them of some stuff too....

@Rcurl: Got to get by there, pay my final respects, and help relieve them of some of their excess stuff!

Why not come round to my office this coming Friday and we can drive down there together (that way I can make sure you don't snaffle all the good stuff :-)
