Where they peacocks?:confused:

BTW, where is Skidog? anybody seen him, I hope he aint in Austin.....that might explain the dead birds....8p Of course, if hoosier was in town, that would do it too, as the mere stench of him could kill a bird at 30 paces. 8p

BTW Milk, Everything I need to know in the world I find out here, on your threads. I am serious, not being an arse. I never make time to watch the news, but I find out all kinds of things by your threads. Keep em coming!:) Good job my friend!

Yes, there was a natural gas smell that has everyone worried in NYC.
