    um, yeah... no glasses = one grumpy woodworker with a headache, but the rest can go!

    He's not wearing his glasses - that's what's confusing you. (but he's still got the wool sweater on.)

    You guys just don't read enough Heinlein! Lazarus Long is one of my favorite characters! A few good quotes from Time Enough For Love:

    1. Progress doesn't come from early risers – progress is made by lazy men looking for easier ways to do things.

    2. A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

    3. A society that gets rid of all its troublemakers goes downhill.

    and my all time personal favorite:

    4. A poet who reads his verse in public may have other nasty habits.

    Thanks for reminding me of him today, Ned! Enjoy that coffee!

    Thanks,

    Bill
