Mars rover, why it really lost communication with NASA?

Could this be the real reason?

I'm afraid we're going to have to send John over to take that paint program away from you.

I can't take credit for that one... it was borrowed, because it had the Farmall in it. :)

Jack, that looks like the recue crew to me. How much do you charge for mileage on your service calls.

John, That isn’t me, I think that’s Lloyd and Dianne McKillip’s tractor I took a picture of at the 03 Cub-arama. Please correct me if I’m wrong. I guess that’s Lloyd on his tractor.

For us southerners (Mo.) what is Tim Hortons?

Sun Jan 25, 2004 10:15 pm

Tim Horton was probably one of the best Defencemen period in the NHL except for maybe Bobby Orr who as you all know played for the Boston Bruins, but was from Ontario - and no, not Ontairo California... After Tim retired from hockey, he started a Donut and Coffee shop in Toronto.

It got really famous. Great homemade style donuts, and awesome coffee! Ron Joyce bought into the business for about a million and Tim along with Ron parlayed Tim Horton's into a nationwide franchise similar to Dunkin' Donuts.

A couple of years ago there was a merger between Ron Joyce and Dave Thomas - yes the founder of Wendy's. Tim Horton's and Wendy's merged with Ron Joyce becoming head dog and Dave as his 1st VP.

Tim Horton's is expanding into the States, and you should be seeing one pop up soon.

Moncton, Riverview and Dieppe NB (where I live) is the Tim Horton's capital of the world. We have more Timmy's per capita than any place in the country. There are approximately 125,000 people here. We have over 30 of them, and every one does between 1 and 2 million per annum, and are all owned by the same franchisee.... very rich guy now! I wish I had bought shares back when I had a chance but couldn't afford it!

I guess the sign with Timmy's on Mars would equate to a Starbucks sign as well - although Timmy's is better coffee. Much better.

Hope that answers your question John....

We have Tim Horton's in our area (They're all over the place), but then this is the home of Dave Thomas so I guess we should expect that.
Good donuts and the coffee's OK if it's fresh. They also have an interesting soup & sandwich menu for lunch.
