    True.... but they also have extra place to put beer and that's not a bad thing.

    I ended up with an ancient upright freezer from my grandfather's house. It drew too much current for my garage wiring, though, so now it's just a big storage cabinet.

    I don't much either. I work at home and a trip to the pub for a cold pint is sometimes the only human interaction I get all day.

    Hmmm. what time is it anyway...
