Thanks mC - they didn't have that sort of thing when I was in school.
Didn't you start with inkwells and a quill, Tony?
Quills? They didn't trust us with those. We had slates and chalk.

Sorry, Tony, it was a rough translation

Really beautiful day out, a little cool but that's ok. Made for a great day to be out on the golf course volunteering for the chamber outing. Not playing golf! No one wants me playing golf. Just keeping track for the prizes. Got a free lunch and got out of there a little earlier than expected too.

The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

Of all the forces in the universe, the hardest to overcome is the force of habit. Gravity is easy-peasy by comparison.
