    Nice slingshot.<br>The design is similar to your avatar slingshot.<br>Maybe you should try other kinds of wood, too.

    You live in paradise mate. You could start a business selling samples.<br>That' s a beautiful view you have there <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_eek.gif" alt="Shocked" longdesc="5">. I will stay outside watching stars all night if i lived in that nature. Thanks for sharing.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Mmmm...One of my favorite things is olive bread dipped in olive oil. I think I'd fit right in there. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"> They actually used to have groves of olive trees near where I live. They found that they do very well in our climate here. No longer grown here for food purposes, but there are still many around just for decoration. I keep waiting for one of my neighbors to prune their olive trees so I can snag a couple branches. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6"></span>
