Thanks everyone, I certainly appreciate the kind thoughts. Corinna thanks especially for the 50 year old whiskey. I've actually spent a few days on the Isle of Skye and it is a beautiful place in the world.
I just got back from a nice meal and several adult beverages. Unfortunately only lager and tequila....several tequilas. Your condolences have made my day.
I was going to mention to you Corinna that if the response count creeps beyond 25 before midnight EST (-5 GMT), I'll forego my other holiday plans this year and will see you in Germany on 24-May-2008.
