    Just like to know where we stand I guess. Lol doc
    Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.
    People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do .: doc

    too many people over here are terrible begrudgers, they hate it when others have more than themselves or do better in life, they just can't take it. I have seen people behave in absolutely deplorable ways towards others that they perceive as smarter, better looking or better off financially. They just want these people knocked off their perch so they can see what it's like to have done nothing with your life.

    A peculiarly Irish trait, unfortunately
    The Gods are just, and of our pleasant vices
    Make instruments to plague us

    I think there are people like that all over the world. I haven't met any pessimists in Ireland.
