46. I thought I remembered you there. Oops.
I went to look and managed to scroll right past your name even though I had a memory of you being there. I think I'll go wash my glasses. :blush:

Reading through this thread is very informative. Apparently the article under discussion has a bit, or a bit much, for everyone. It's "fun(?)" to watch the various focal points to which posters respond.

:hug: Desertrose

Perhaps that Biblical passage should have read, "And the unworthy shall inherit the earth." I wonder what it said in the original? *sigh*
