    Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise
    was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying
    12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz,
    Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship
    after its stop in New York.

    This would have been the largest single shipment delivered to
    Mexico. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York.
    The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost.

    The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were
    eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their
    anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of
    Mourning, which they still observe to this day.

    The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is
    known, of course, as "Sinko de Mayo".

          Well I never... you learn something new every day. Perhaps that explains why Mexicans use sour cream on their tacos.

          This has reminded me of a Canadian archeologist who told me that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce was very popular with early Canadian settlers and trappers who foraged in the tundra. Since Lea & Perrins have maintained a record of all their bottle designs, archeologists have been able to sift through the remains of settlements and date them according to the types of Worcestershire sauce bottles they found.

          There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

              I have a VacuFlo system for my house. It might have enough suction for a small table saw but not for the large cabinet makers saw like you have.

              Like the others have said, your Walvac might work fine for smaller tools, especially for a hand sander.

              The VacuFlo actually uses...

              I got my second shot last week here at the Eisenhower Med Center in Palm Springs. I am 82 and in their system and was contacted by them to come in for my first shot. At the completion of that shot I was given my appt. for the second shot.
              Like yours Rolf they were really organized both times....
