    OK, Stu, 'fess up!

    So, either I missed something, or I'm blind as a bat. Stu, your tag line has referenced someone from B.C. for two months now. What's the connection???

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Her and her husband are on my top ten list of people I admire and I'd love to meet and shake their hands and just say "Thanks".

    Yep, Pat Buckley is/was one of my heros, she had class, she was smart, witty and charming, sadly, something you just don't see much of anymore, she was a lady, nuff said.

    That she came from roughly the same part of the planet as me, was always just a bonus

    Cheers!

    Love this quote from her....

    Kennedy asked if he could borrow a car to go back to Gstaad. Pat replied: "Certainly not - there are three bridges between here and Gstaad."[1]
