I knew you were 'Bob the Bloody Builder' ;D ;D ;D

PS. Just don't build a bloody highway right in the middle of you're suburb where you have a lot of people living in their homes, and if you do they will kill you no matter how rich you get money not the bloody issue. ;) ;D
@ Speedy,
It isn't a highway.
This is what it's all about:
http://mlpaa.org  and we'll take all the help we can get. :)
Why in the world would anybody remove a lake and turn it into a desert? I like the before pictures better.
Maybe one needs to look a little deeper. Vandals removed the lake many years ago and it subsequently became a dumping ground.
But that's all spelled out on the website. We're currently in the process of turning this into a wildlife refuge and a park that the whole
community can be proud of and enjoy.  :)

"Build 9364, a partner version that was originally compiled on March 15th, has been made available on file sharing sites and includes some of the new changes that Microsoft is building into its significant Windows 8 update".

Well I wonder ???: So is this something that will be included in the 'Windows Update' or have to be paid for $$ and installed on top of existing Windows 8 Build.  ::)

Well that really is interesting, looks like the MS grand plan to have all OSes based on the all singing and dancing windows phone metro interface only to bin windows phone. I'm sure Nokia will be less than impressed.
