I'm no good at solving puzzles. I'm still at a loss regarding the possible meaning of three brass-colored and two bronze-colored wrenches under my name in posts here. Or should I say "coloured spanners"? ;-)

Oh, now I see- five same-coloured spanners for any Administrator who reaches 2,728 posts! But then the spanners' white background is lost... :?:

Hopefully this cold winter will do in the Minnesota State Bird, the mosquito, that they insist on sharing with Wisconsin. If we have to have global warming, I wish it was here instead of the Arctic that is screwing up the weather pattern there and sending cold weather way farther out... Stan
