        Saw a galvanised 2gallon watering can outside a shop selling "collectibles" described as a ventilated watering can, which means it had holes in the base and the bottom of the spout and was thus neither use nor ornament and better described as scrap.

                I've got a galvanised bucket which I have patched up many times (for fire ash now) I could sell it for more that I paid for it £1.50

                    I know a lot of people like that sort of thing, but "novelty" plant pots leave me cold.

                          The exchange rate for U.S. bucks is pretty steep for us right now and even a modest lunch across the border is still expensive!:yikes:

                          But I'm going anyway. A buddy of mine and I are going to zipline Niagara Falls (read: one long scream) and then flip over the border for lunch. Hope I don't get tempted to buy much. :doh:
