It's a 100 mile round-trip for me to the nearest flush toilet!

I know the feeling, SRS. York and back in a day. 400 mile round trips are not fun. No traffic at least. Apperently some football match was on...

Very starnge, being in England aand seeing flags everywhere. It's just not English. Felt much more normal when I got back to Scotland, and saw national flags everywhere. I'm used to random displays of Scottish nationalism.....

It isn't good for a camera to rattle around unsecured in an empty space, Amos. It would break the camera.

I'm half-way through all of my trips to Dallas. I think the train (read: cheap but time consuming) portion is over. Tonight and twice tomorrow I must drive (read: faster but way more expensive). The things we do for our kids (and the lack of appreciation that they show for all of that work) is staggering.

I wonder if we could slip a webcam into her most secret and closely guarded regions -- for example, her brain.

You mean like "Sinus Cam" or "Esophagus Cam"? No, wait! What an idea! The ultimate in microcamera websites! "Toejam Cam"! Just attach a wireless microcam between two of your toes and don't wash your feet for, oh, two weeks. A new low in voyeurism to be sure!

It would give some visibility into the nature of, um, intimacy. Which might be a good thing.

Why would I want to arm myself with gardners, chauffeurs and fiber optic lines? I like the arms I have. Anyway, if I were to have a gardner where my right arm is and a chauffeur where my left arm is then there wouldn't be room for a fiber optic arm. Oh, I suppose it could be a leg or a foot or errr... mmmm.... something. We'll let Rustic Rebel finish that thought.

Well, I wish we could all call in disgustingly rich and arm ourselves with gardners and chauffeurs and personal fiber optic lines, THEN you'd see some BS all right.

Sorry, Ma, but I've been riding the rails today. Took kids to a convention in Dallas this morning, then returned to pick up the youngest to spend the night at home. Repeat again on Saturday and Sunday. No train on Sunday, though, so that trip will cost me in gas money.

I am not going to go haring after your 7% solution, even if you hound me to. I am no baker, street irregular, or holme-less ragamuffin to cater to pipe dreams or similar fiddles.

BTW, I recently traversed a web page that showed, at the bottom, an ad specializing in legal services for those who had been bitten by bedbugs in hotels. The headline said "Bed Bug Lawyers". I think this is one for the Martian Annals of Earth -- that collection of Terran idiosyncracies so extreme that they would make an Ancient One just shake his head in disbelief.

Why would I give you a dressing gown? And if I were to do so should it be mouse-colored so that you can wear it around Holmes? Or would you prefer another color -- a study in scarlet, perhaps, although that might make your skin sallow and give you a yellow face. What, son? I should stop needling you or I might become a man with a twisted lip?

No more so than the old saw often used by those -- like us -- accustomed to deep posts. For deep posts require deep thought, and being deep and whole; and when the flurry of the times means several such posts, deep and wholly to the point, are called for, then several similarly deep postholes are wholly in order. And thus one can only recite, as our elders did so often, when confronting several such deep posts whole,

"Well, well, well."

There, it is enough, and if the humour is too broad, at least it was not broadly written, and is not as dour as a church.

Be sure to take lots of best wishes, positive energy and anything else of that order you can think of.

The swords won't help on the Plane, but they are useful for getting through city streets. Central Edinburgh, tourist season, in Full Highland. You can legally carry a sword, and resisting the urge to use it on the slow moving crowds is hard. So long as the case comes up in August, I'm sure the jury will buy an insanity defense....

As Rapaire has pointed out, he is not fencing words, and his point is well made, and certainly his post does not deserve to be denied the point; for that would be almost as bad as losing one's post altogether. But, and I say it whole-heartedly, I am touched, and moved by such touch to take up defence in this post of his point from his own. This makes me wholly, and deeply, responsible for opening my mouth, with haste, as a sort of post orifice, if you will. And though as deep as a hole, surely not as deep as a well, or a hale, as they say when they cry, "Hale, no!".. But, for a post, 't will serve.

Amos, I'll not fence words with you, for my riposte from seconde to sixte would put it to the touch. I would indeed take a pound of fleche, and that would cut me to the quick. You can be, if you wish, the the minister of de fence, a post which I'm sure will foil your ill-wishers. You ARE de MAN! You can have de fence post, a staple for asking, "Wire we here?" So, for now, excuse me, for I must piste.

Indeed, were you to be deposted, I would not begin to know how to minister to such a loss. But, a minister of defence I could readily be, should need for such a post there be. If so, I urge you not to fence with words, nor post any fencing posts, but to speak plainly, and posthaste, to so advise if you are in a state of defensive posture. For pre-haste makes no man well, but ministering to one unfenced, unstraddled and brought down is to help a man to cease from digging wholly too far a hole, and that post-haste. For well it said, de post is mightier den de fence, and so is the post hole mightier than the whole post. But beyond well, hale and whole, even the best minister cannot make you, for there is no known line post-whole, post-hale. So, I shall sign this post, hail away, and sign off, though without a mount, I shall not post off, though I suppose I could go to the post officers for such.

Well spoke, for a man so dedicated to fencing AND to posting as yourself, good Rapaire. I have yet to see you fence with a post, but often enough have seen you post from the fence. And if you were to sign on as defence, would you be obliged to depost? How many? To unfence a fence sitter is no sin -- but to unpost such a valiant fellow a loss indeed, and a shame besides. Lose your post? Oh, forbid it. Safe yourself from any bug that would de-post you, for such a monarch to be deposte would be to see the king's business fall off severely, in sooth!

I think being post-Bush is semantically equivalent to being post-hole, or at least, post-A-hole. Which requires one stop straddling the post hole digger, for which being Australian is no excuse. I can forgive the Governor being Austrian, but I think the Prez is taking it to far being an Australopithecan. Someone should remind him to take the pith helmet. He seems to be always taking the pith without the helmet.

When you start discussing chain link and wire types of fencing the puns start flying and this is where "Barb Dwyer" steps out of the phone booth and puts on her aluminum foil hat and suggests, via a little verbal fencing, that it would be better to be post-Bush than deal with Bush posts about now.
