    According to their site they have no phone... Which is odd but I can deal with it.

    You are 100% correct. It's a common mis-heard lyric. Really "thrill of the fight", or something like that.

    My target and I have talked twice but haven't ever finalized a trade. His box goes out today with one mighty heavy piece of glassware!

    Sorry I have been a little quiet this BIF I have a lot of real life things going on. Looking forward to the haul.

    I will have mine up soon, just got a new camera and trying to figure that part out too.

    Cheers, Matt
