Been a while since one of us has done one of these, so here's my feeble attempt for today:

1) A- Have you found any of the "brand new" Johnnie's on a peg near you?
B- Which store?
C- Which ones did you buy?
D- What did you think about the new packaging, once you finally saw it?

2) Gaze into your crystal ball for a moment: With all the latest hoo-ha about the RC2 announcement that they are dropping some die cast lines (ie: ERTL) and "repositioning" others (ie:JL), is your opinion positive or negative regarding the future of the cars we love best?

3) A- Have you gotten any snow so far this winter?
B- How much?

4) Are you excited about our next calendar holiday (Ground Hog Day!) and how will you celebrate it?

5) What is the first web-site you visit when you turn on the 'puter every morning?

Talk amongst yourselves .......

B- Which store? WalMart C- Which ones did you buy? Mustang, Javelin, Talladega, Futura, Eldorado, 442, Boss 429, a few more I can't think of right now.
D- What did you think about the new packaging, once you finally saw it? That I'm glad I'm not displaying them in the blister anymore, and that they were tougher to open.

2) Gaze into your crystal ball for a moment: With all the latest hoo-ha about the RC2 announcement that they are dropping some die cast lines (ie: ERTL) and "repositioning" others (ie:JL), is your opinion positive or negative regarding the future of the cars we love best?
Negative, but I wasn't thrilled with RC in the first place, and nothing has happened to change that feeling.

3) A- Have you gotten any snow so far this winter? Not really
B- How much? A small flurry one day last week

4) Are you excited about our next calendar holiday (Ground Hog Day!) and how will you celebrate it?
No
5) What is the first web-site you visit when you turn on the 'puter every morning?

Ok...

1) A- Have you found any of the "brand new" Johnnie's on a peg near you?
B- Which store?
Wal Mart
C- Which ones did you buy?
That was a week ago! I don't remember which one it was...
D- What did you think about the new packaging, once you finally saw it?
It should cut down on people swapping cars in the package...
Otherwise it doesn't matter to me. I have a knife.....

2) Gaze into your crystal ball for a moment: With all the latest hoo-ha about the RC2 announcement that they are dropping some die cast lines (ie: ERTL) and "repositioning" others (ie:JL), is your opinion positive or negative regarding the future of the cars we love best?
I don't know what to say here... There was no new product available for months on end... Then there is the statement about profits being off.
I can hope for the best, but......

3) A- Have you gotten any snow so far this winter?
No.
B- How much?
None.

4) Are you excited about our next calendar holiday (Ground Hog Day!) and how will you celebrate it?
I will dance around nude at sunrise while waving a pair of the beasts (one painted red, the other painted green) over my head. The music I will play to keep the beat is "Everybody Wang Chung Tonight".

5) What is the first web-site you visit when you turn on the 'puter every morning?

1) A- Have you found any of the "brand new" Johnnie's on a peg near you? Yes, but only 4
B- Which store? Wal-Mart in Brockville Ontario
C- Which ones did you buy? Olds 442 and Buick GS, Left the Futura and Torino for later
D- What did you think about the new packaging, once you finally saw it? Not bad, although I am not a fan of the vacuum type packaging, I do like the layout and graphics.

2) Gaze into your crystal ball for a moment: With all the latest hoo-ha about the RC2 announcement that they are dropping some die cast lines (ie: ERTL) and "repositioning" others (ie:JL), is your opinion positive or negative regarding the future of the cars we love best? I work at a TSC store here in Canada, and Ertl is our top selling line, especially farm equipment, I know RC2 is keeping the farm end of things, but it is too bad that they have to "downsize". I do look forward to the JL new releases and what they will come up with in the future. I think for now it is a positive move

3) A- Have you gotten any snow so far this winter? Just this week
B- How much? About 15 cm, (8-9 inches)

4) Are you excited about our next calendar holiday (Ground Hog Day!) and how will you celebrate it? With a few wobbley pops i reckon'

5) What is the first web-site you visit when you turn on the 'puter every morning? My fantasy hockey pool. Then Hobbytalk of course
