    When I started work as a brick mason's laborer at 15, the guy that started with me was a bit slow.

    The boss sent him off at lunchtime with instructions to go and find a few pounds of elbow grease and not come back until he did.

    I had to work on my own for the rest of the week.

    There are 6.9 billion people in the world. 320 million use pounds. SO you should be saying - for those who live on planet earth 3KG and on the isolated region of the western hemisphere 5lb.

    Less than 5% of the world population uses a pound or a mile in daily language.

    Thanks for saying Hi.

    I remember you stopping by and I see your name in the lurkers section regualarly.

    I have a good local SoCal supplier of Peacock, but thank you. I need to remove as many variables as possible from the hatch as I can. Once I establish the breed and understand the hatching idiosyncrasies of peafowl, I will step into the world of shipped eggs.

    Enjoy your catching up. You are more than half way at page 147!!

    Sin, MX. now CA.
    Yup, metric system is more easier than standard. I like it. If you're a constructor (Architect) you need to convert all your standard measures to metric and then back to standard to get exactly measures.

    Pardon I'm learning English

    Day 23 is winding down

    The humidity is finally below 45% now the tropical depression has moved away. It may help the hatch rates for the next series of madness.

    Bernie is back to routine. The wet season makes grass cutting a huge job.
