    Top o' the evening to ya! How is every little ol' thing?Seems to be dying here, to borrow a metaphor from our favorite ol' codger, it's tres mausoleum-like here.

    Miss the days when, in spite of some strong personalities, we actually had fun takehere discussing poetry.

    Hoping you sharp ones (the real ones) can make that happen again.
    Take care

    Disaster never comes alone
    always it brings many tongues
    to taste and to torture
