On occasion, disease-infected corpses were flung into cities in an attempt to infect the people under siege

I'm sure that there are loads of volunteers to help crank those winches.  whistlie

I can plaster but it's not pretty (and flat) like it should be. Welding, engine rebuilding, car mechanics, plumbing, electrics, tree surgery, roofing, pointing, floor-laying, kitchen-building, boiler-installing, gas-piping, soldering, knocking rooms together, caving, climbing, canyoning, canoeing, diving, windsurfing, mountaineering, skiing, snowboarding, rally-driving, electronics, progamming, truck-driving were all easy........


Hey wookey, have you tried this yet  Shocked.....
