Well, if I liked to fly t'wood be nice, Jerry. But I think I'd rather have a Mercedes for each day of the week...hehehe

Yep, Howie is right I suppose. All big airplanes look the same to me. Personally I'd have let the dealership keep that little one, and built a bigger pool.

The Great White Groot Throne!!!!! Howie, we should buy Jerry one of these to offset the chilling effects of the coming cold Michigan winter. Maybe Diane would contribute a few Canadian dollars if we throw a couple of white chocolate kisses at her!!! hehe

Oh, and maybe we should send Jerry, a couple of cases of Preparation H too. Bet there will be some side...errr bottom effects if Ole Jer sits on his Great White Groot Throne for long periods...

But...Jerry will have to furnish his Throne with computer and fax...[Linked Image]

I want one of these! http://www.japan-101.com/culture/high-tech_toilets.htm

Read the article, it's rather humurous.

When we went to Japan, we encountered many of these types of toilets. As expected, I couldn't resist pushing buttons to see what buttons did what. Written all in Japanese, it was a cat and mouse game not knowing what button did what? But, hehe, I pushed them all anyway. My Japanese exchange daughter hollered at me, "HEY DAD! YOU HAVING FUN IN THERE?" She could hear the different features being turned on and all. I replied, I WAS UNTIL I HIT THE WRONG BUTTON. She laughed her head off knowing full well which one I found.

I found that there is one button in particular that you do NOT want to push. But, I must say though that the heated feature on these toilets are wonderful.

Yah! I hate freezing my bum off on cold toilet seats! grin I've got a couple of guesses as to the "no-no" buttons, but I'll keep them to myself.

"Great White Groot Throne"? grin grin grin You bet, Ron! Now it just needs to be tricked out with the great features from Japan.

You might say that, I am a King and seem to reign supreme in that category. All I need is my Burger King hat. But, I'm just a peon in others. [Linked Image]

The room I was in at this home in Japan has no heat in the bathroom so that heated feature on the great White Groot Throne was an added pleasure.

Your guess on those buttons are no doubt more than likely correct! I have to admit, it made me jump when I hit those buttons! It was less than pleasurable.

I now know why she was laughing so hard out there. It was only a matter of time before I hit the wrong one and she knew it!

I mentioned something to her about that when I departed the room saying, hey, what the heck is THIS one for anyway? I don't like it! She laughed even harder then. That button dad is for women. Yeah? NO KIDDING I said? I don't think I'll be playing around with that toilet of yours again unless I want to become one! Of course, she had to translate that to her parents. I heard them all busting a gut in the other room. When I entered, they stared at the look in face as if to say, and, what the heck is so funny anyway laughing even harder yet? I was the brunt of a few Japanese jokes after that.
