History will remember today as a day of days. Mark it in your diary. It will enter into our iconography.

I have returned to work. There will be a ripple, that will become a palpable surge in GDP, that will metamorphose into a raging torrent of energy and industry today as I fire up Powerpoint and Excel, and the steam, hiss, clank and roar of a process flow surge through the economy.

It will be positively Stakhanovite.

Admit it. You are lucky to have me.

My husband may be experiencing a lay off or redundancy soon.

I hope you're right.

Of course I'm right. Haven't you read my profile?

I would love to. However the recent change in the forum has bought about many eccentricities.

An inability for me to read anyone's profiles being one of them.

It says simply that I have a lot of faults but being wrong isn't one of them.

"It says simply that I have a lot of faults but being wrong isn't one of them."

And so enters my long lost brother, stage left!!

Mom always told me I had an older fraternal twin that had been left behind a trashcan at the airport in England. I don't recall her saying your name was Hesspartacus though. But you're right about never being wrong. It's a family medal. Wear it loud and wear it proud.

BTW, the mother that tossed ya in favor of me says she sends her love.

Really? Wow.

Tell me your secret. I always assume I'm wrong.

ps If you are both C Grant doubles I will be in my element.

More Avram than Cary, I'm afraid, Tito.

Nitro, I don't care whether the sadistic old witch sends her love or anything else. Rejection is a heavy burden to bear.

Never mind. One C Grant is enough for anyone.

He had lovely hair too.

It's ok. I have faith in you.

Things will pick up.

You've said you are never wrong and as I have no evidence to the contrary you must be right.

Tito, I wish you both well. I know it doesn't help, but as I feel powerless to, I'll repeat things already here [ a little sick humour at work here for levity's sake ]:

"There's a jobless recovery going on. Didn't you know that? Pish! Stop asking,"how does that work, exactly?" and just get on board."

"Keep yer chin up."

"Hang in there baybee." ( insert picture of cat, hanging from branch by front paws )

Now the truth: Perfect time to start your own business. Really. Don't listen to any shit who says different. Start small...grow..stablize...grow...lather, rinse, repeat...Don't follow the herds fear, don't adopt it for yourselves. I personally understand how much trepidation comes into play but just as things can always get worse, they can also always get better.

That'll be 20 of your dollars, please.

See?

Really? Wow.

Thankyou for your kind reassurances. Who wouldn't trust you?

Having people who are also quietly and loudly stupid to communicate with helps a whole kaboodle full!

Bless ya
