Not the same hillside Cueball walked down earlier, I notice.
Yup, I cant wait to see SBN's updated map after this little adventure... wait it was SBN who made the map right? [spoiler]...I might be going crazy..
Sorry, no wasn't me. I'm in front of a computer enough that I don't usually have to blitz or ketchup much, but I don't have the creativity to make maps, or charts, or songs, or stories or cupcakes <sigh>. Sorry, I'll try to think of something.
Re. Lego vs. Legos - One of the reasons I've always found "Legos" weird and wrong (other than being British and therefore used to "Lego") is because it's this weird thing Americans have done with just this ONE brand. Like you don't see anyone referring to other similar products in the same way, nobody ever talks about "Knexes" or "Meccanos" or calls pieces of model train track "Hornbys"...
Maybe to distinguish them from Duplos? Because you can't say, 'pick up your bricks, and your bigger bricks,' but you can say, 'pick up your Legos and Duplos.' I have a strange urge to go to the Lego store and start a discussion though. (I'll probably resist.)

I've always heard it called a wheelbarrow. What else is it?
Apparently there are places in the US where it is a wheel-barrel.
