    • Thank you Uncle Tree. Agree with you about Fear & Loathing—Death has me still confused a touch. It keeps changing it’s mind what it is. Warning: stay away from the politicians. You don’t really know who to believe. And yes, they always want money and not just from the clergy. 😉 Loving life 1/2 the time. Get grumpy and sleepy the other half. 😎 jk
