Much to my suprise, when she saw my new antenna setup in my office, the only thing she asked was - will that thing attract lightning? I told her that I would put a ground wire on it.

You had already worried yourself sick about what she was going to do when she saw the new setup.

Wrong answer, try this. Hon, we all know metal attracts lightning. When you wear your jewelery you're a walking lightning rod, I'm surprised you didn't know that.

Just thinking.... if she likes gadgets, you can get her a new iPad or iPod. Maybe even an iMac. Just don't expect the same love'n if you buy her a new iRon.

Xmo, that was absolutely one of the funniest videos I've ever seen! Except for the not showering regularly I have to admit I'm probably 'guilty' of using all the 'excuses' he uses! Of course I find this video just as I'm about to decide between buying a Yaesu FT-950 or a Kenwood TS-590. Fortunately, at this point in time, I live alone so I only have to justify this purchase to myself!

It really made my day, thanks!
