Learn from the mistakes of others, DD. Give up that high kicking now, while there is still time.

Nice pair of pins.

I can't quite picture David wearing "that" style dress.

I can't even manage a waltz!

You've shown wisdom in the choice of subject, David. At this point you're unlikely to be as original as Joseph Smith, Mary Baker Eddy or L. Ron Hubbard.

I doubt, Bob, that anyone can be original on the subject of death because no one knows the essence of it, only the symptoms.

Epicurus made a good case. In his letter to Menoeceus he wrote, "Death ... is nothing to us, seeing that, when we are, death is not come, and, when death is come, we are not. It is nothing, then, either to the living or to the dead, for with the living it is not and the dead exist no longer. Most people prefer lots of embellishment, however.

Old Will put it rather more succinctly, "To be or not to be, that is the question".

Well I intend to "be" for the immediate future and that's all I can manage right now.
Lovely story DD.
Keep up the good work.

I'll do my best, Andra.

Thanks David. I think we needed a bit of cheering up.
