Big win across the pond for Kentucky boy, Russ Cochran.

Yesterday, I tried to get a lot of the things done around my house that one never does unless company’s coming or one finally just screams that the toilet paper roll keeps falling off.  I’ve even lowered myself to leaving it semi-fixed and blaming the occasional guest in the powder room for its breakage...
