Does anyone else feel like that lady in those commercials (steinmart I believe) who was standing in front of the door going "Open, open, open, open".

Hold on there little one. It will happen before you know it.

As for standing in front of the window saying "open, open, open" you are smaller then me, so you'll be behind meSly

Re: [Hooknswoop] Wind Tunnel in Colorado [In reply to] Can't Post

wow. Good to see the diffuser in place! Smile That was one of those critical items because it essentially closes the entire flow path below it to heavy equipment Smile Next comes the inlet contractor and the air path should be complete!

Slightly hijacked [In reply to] Can't Post

Ugh!!

So, I've applied to be a tunnel rat at the new tunnel -- sent the resume, the application, the cover letter, etc.. Anyway, waited a week or so and just made the customary "hey, just wanted to make sure you got my stuff" phone call.

No problem, right? Wrong!

I think (am pretty sure actually,) that my VM sounded completely idiotic!Blush I do fine face-to-face and talking to someone over the phone, but VM!! I think I have some sort of message-leaving-impediment!

If anyone sees this Norm guy, be sure to tell him I'm a great (read: not-completely-incompetent) girl!BlushBlush

Dear sweet Kelli, you don't know me as well as you think you do, if you think Derek can distract me from tunnel time.
