Good thoughts, Ed !

I gave my pair of grandsons a brand new Meccano set each a while back, through a third party (my wife). . Never heard from the kids. . A few weeks went by before I saw them. . I asked them how they liked the Meccano. . They told me that their mom took the sets away and wouldn't let them play with them ... they are only allowed Lego. . These boys are 7 and 10 .... time they were learning about screwdrivers and wrenches.

So much for the development of their mechanical aptitudes !

Don't ASK ... I might lie. Don't TELL me ... Iíll forget. But if you SHOW me I might remember; and if you INVOLVE me Iíll probably get it.
