Thank you, rjh01. Added to my extensions!

I guess the shady site people have a picture of my butt now, oh well.

I have been in the US Army and work for the Feds in a Civilian job so I am sure I am on a number of government lists....

Yeah, I was a combat engineer and trained in making the boom.

I'm sure I'm on quite a few lists somewhere.

If I ever buy a significant quantity of fertilizer, I assume there'll be a knock at my door soon after
