    I got nailed today :p

    First off, please excuse my dirty grubby fingers, I was working on my car earlier so I wasn't my normal spotless self. :)

    So, after much swearing and sweating and finger crushing, I finished changing the front brake pads and also put on new front stabilizer drop link rods on my car, y'all really needed to know that. :p Anyway, after a quick wash and a nice cup of coffee I then decided it was now time to move that pesky coral that had been bugging me for so long because it was in the wrong place.:biggrin:

    After carefully picking up my prized specimen I made a rather embarrassing squeaking sound coupled with a few choice words, alas the coral ended upside down on top of a piece of rock, and it stayed there for a while until I nursed my wounds from my first ever bristleworm attack!!!!

    p.s. this was also the perfect opportunity for me to play with my new photo editing program, take note of the fancy shmancy borders and watermark :tt2::tt2:

    It actually wasn't too bad, the initial sting caught me and lasted a few seconds, but seemed to stop as soon as my hand had dried.

    "Operation Extraction" then commenced, much to my daughters delight. lol.

    Dean - use sticky tape to pull them out or go to the A&E and get them to spray on synthetic skin and then pull it off. Its a product that gets used on burn victims. Works GREAT!

    Naaice.

    Funny you should mention this, but I was thinking about an accident I had as a child while trying to learn to walk on stilts. It involved a cactus patch and an extraction process.

    When does the itchy start? Everything is fine now, no itchy or scratchy or anything. Maybe they didn't go deep enough?

    lol :p It's not what I think you're thinking about, I haven't dropped the suspension, it's just the name of the rods that connect the suspension to the anti-roll bar, the bushes were gone and were making a bit of noise.
