Oh I wish, I could use a good Chili Cookoff about now.  Bangers and Mash and Fish and Chips are about to get old! 


I'm looking at a 1986 Land Rover Defender form the Ministry of Defence that I will likely bring back with me when I come home.  I miss all the Car guys in Hampton Roads.  Tell them I said Hi.
