Hey Rog,

You offering pre-mortem viewings? I have a new concept -- who needs 'belts?' Let's get her some suspenders, eh?

Roger if you do not find anything when you take the belt off, see how much force it takes to rip one of the ribs off the belt.

Knew I should have stopped by on the way home today. Then I could have seen the offending belt and given a useless opinion of it.

I fear that once you are done with 'your plate' you will be able to buy the plane!

Thanks for all the great investigative work.
You were on to it a few weeks ago!
Commendable diagnostic skills, Rog!

Our friend from Switzerland is a Brit - Brit's rule when it comes to grammar and English.

When I became a US citizen I was tested for my knowledge of English by an American

worse Rog:
When i worked at a large US company I wanted to give my parents a tour of the manufacturing plant. I was a manager. I had arranged for an escort for my parents. I had a white badge (non-US) and was stopped by a red-badged gate guard (US Citizen) who could not speak English, he was apparently Eastern. He could not understand enough to call the person who was to escort us, and shooed us away saying "no America, no America" ... THEY FLEW home that day and never saw the plant.
