    BUMP - so it is easier to find.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I had three questions on the African continent, and two on England/Ireland specifics. Not one of my best days

    I believe that I am having a good week at this. Sometimes the questions are just easier than others..... then sometimes someone walks into your office and it takes an extra 50 seconds....

    ahh well.
