Do you have any of those N95 face masks (I may have the # slightly off)?
Maybe seal the cracks in your home with towels/whatever until it dissipates? Please be safe!

Good deal, thank you for looking... dunno why I didn't do the search myself other than looking at other high profile threads.

yeah it could have been a lot worse but is still bad.

things are fast and furious since the start of the year... i think this is only my fourth day here and i dunno how you guys can keep up with threads you comment on... i got so many booked and windows open i feel a draft

ok seriously, i'm wondering what today will bring... i think i need to register so i can subscribe to links instead
