Don't "lego" of your sanity over it. Now - I have Meccano - is that better?
Meccano is more interesting, never seen a real one... but people who've had them, loved them.Wolfie!
About 4 years ago I started up my lego collection again. I now own most of the Harry Potter stuff, an electic train and some of the Indi sets. So I don't mind the odd lego block or two. My brother still has the lego we played with a kids 30 years ago. I find it rather theroputic building things. so just send some of those links my way.
