    Beware... forsooth. I understand this is the sort of thing that the New Jersey boys carry... but only on ceremonial occasions. Italian heirlooms, only given when one has achieved a certain 'acceptance' --

    an actual lol.

    Some martial arts guy I read somewhere talked about how even a small and untrained person can generate quite a surprising amount of force, they just have to learn how to harness it. Illustrated the point with some stat about the astonishing speed that air moves in a sneeze - imagine if they could punch with that power from their torso behind it...

    I read this aloud to my youngest lad; he said that maybe my "kiai" should be "achoo."

    I was concerned that they are OK, but you are probably right.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    I drove one of those once in the '90's, so much body roll you had to tack it for the corners. Perhaps he's stuck in irons somewhere. A lee shore or somewhere suitably exciting.

    I did speak to Paul the other day and he was sounding a bit croaky, although he's okay and sounded in good spirits. They've both been on holiday in warmer climes, busy with the rel's and various out-laws.

    Paul's not dead, just ill from a bad throat issue. It's FINALLY starting to clear up.

    We both got it too. I noticed it first when we left Savannah. I thought I'd licked it after a few days, but it's back again. It really knocked Lindy out as well, but she's bounced back without recurrence.

    When you're right, you're right. It probably was something we licked. We ate out a good deal except for some steaks Paul served us raw. I cooked the asparagus. Admittedly, those were responsible for the usual "next day" effect. You think it could have been the steaks?

    Maybe Paul is the WBF Typhoid Mary .
    Which, in the interests of conversation, I had shots against last week. Typhoid, Tetanus and one of the other things , name escapes me. Anyway , arms wanted to drop off for a few days.

    throat too sore to 'talk' on the forum?
    The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.
    Personal failures are too important to be trusted to others.

    Very subtle, Mr B.
