Thank you lawrence, just came back from a week vacation, and have been
enjoying the last batch of bad examples. infact have had several laughs
in an otherwise very very bleak day.

do not shut out the joy because we are too busy or too important doing
very important things. we only go through life once to miss much of the
humor so generously provided.

cheers!!! rof - in between hurricanes
