Apology accepted Bonnie. I too hope we can get past this and move on. I 
consider the matter closed.

The fact is that, as I am sure you and others already are aware of, we will 
not always be in agreement on the matters we each feel passionately and 
fight so hard on. That is perfectly alright. However, we can always work 
together on those things we agree about as well as also trying to find ways 
to work together on those things we do not on. While I think it is better 
not to waste precious energy and time fighting over what we do disagree 
over, I do believe it is important and healthy to engage in discussion and 
debate with as much mutual respect and benefit of the doubt given toward 
each other as is humanly possible. That said, when someone turns up the heat 
over a matter I care deeply about, I am not shy about my views either; 
though I would rather use such moments to use my energy in some other way 
constructive instead. For example, I like to take such moments to cook 
something good and share it with others when possible: e.g., I make pretty 
good omelet's and other dishes. In my family, some of us males can cook and 
I am not just talking about heating food either. Some of us are fairly good 
cooks at that and some of us have done as a means of employment at various 
levels. When the opportunity affords itself or someone otherwise asks me, I 
also take time to show others how to prepare and cook simple, but hearty, 
meals as well as other survival skills. I do it very low key, trying to be 
careful not to impose my self on others if it can be helped. BTW, an 
excellent beverage in this heat is a mixture of iced tea and orange juice. 
Good stuff. But now I am rambling on and on anon ... :-) [smile]

Hi Morgan,
  Sorry man, open mouth, insert foot. I should have known you were presently 
homeless. I hope we can get past this and move on. It won't happen again.
Please forgive me. <GROVEL><GROVEL>
