          Every time I read your location, I think of that America song 'Ventura Highway'- one of my fav mellow tunes. A definite time transport, mood setter and it likes lots of volume!

            Actually, I did forget the comma after "Actually" as Christian pointed out. I'm pretty sure, however, that no comma is necessary after humor (because there's no need for a pause in reading or speaking what I wrote), and neither of you caught my typo; I meant to type "or" but typed "of" before "punctuation".:o

              I sometimes need a small disposable container to mix up epoxy, dispense glue, clean paint brushes or whatever. I've tried using party cups and such, but solvents usually cause the plastic to melt. Then I got the idea to recycle aluminum cans. Cut the lid off, then rinse out and dry the can and you have a wonderful one-use container.
              Certainly a worthy idea. Once you get old & diseased you also wind up with a lot of old prescription bottles that seem pretty impervious to many solvents. Great for mixing small batches of custom stains/sealers/touch up paints. My pharmacy seems to ship everything in the short, wide 2" diameter bottles these days.

                OK, next time I'll do an alliteration just for you.

                  I lived in Ventura for a little while, I frequently would walk to the end of the pier.

                    Cool idea... that seemed to stir up an inordinate amount of stuff.

                    People take their sodas pretty seriously around here, I guess... ;)

                    We happen to be more bottled water folks recently. I've done similar with the plastic bottles. Just saw one off to desired height for a mixing cup. There's an advantage there in being able to see the level, what color if I'm tinting stuff, etc...

                    I should say that I've been using it mostly with Shellac based stuff, (ethyl alcohol solvent) don't know if they hold up to other finish solvents.

                          Ventucky Pier

                          I lived in Ventura for a little while, I frequently would walk to the end of the pier.
                          Unfortunately, a while back the pier got a little bit shorter.
                          Still a great place.

                            Yes, I know. It happens every couple of years and then they rebuild it.
                            I've only been to that restaurant once.

                              Dude, NO SHARP EDGES! My can opener cuts cleanly and since aluminum is so soft, it leaves a very smooth cut. Really.
                              Maybe we did not have a can opener back then... that why we grind it on cement.... I was too young to why certain thing was done certain way for a reason..
