Re: recommended books

Ahhhh...I see then.
Well. I might object to being the "hard and fast " Guy.

Re: recommended books

There is a special Ring of Hell for punsters, and Janet ain't safe just because she responded to another thread either!

Re: recommended books

Sorry Janet, I canto understand what you just wrote.....maybe we can practice together when we get to that ring I mentioned. We should have plenty of time on our hands.
