Re: That Great Golden EIB Microphone in the Sky.......

Here on the west coast he started at 9. So the first thing I have done every morning since OCP started was turn on the lights and then turn on Rush. What a remarkable person. It would be impossible to exaggerate his importance in my life.

2021 Patch Contest - Winner last page

Time to guess the patch design for 2021 (Year 11). If you guess what the Coleman appliance is used on the patch then you will win a $50 shopping credit with OCP. The new patches will be ready for the anniversary date of January 11th so the winner will be announced on the 12th. One guess per person.

If it isn't a 220 gen then it would have to be either a 200A or 201. The only other one that would fit the gen nut and be able to attach it would be a 236 or 502 but those would be so long that you would not be able to put on the burner.
