I just love sitting and watching -- I think it's the sociologist in me. Sometimes you get rewarded with an "aha!". Thanks, "one..."!

Wonderful verse.. I think it has that satisfying feel of longevity, and secure comfort...

La edad es experiencia y siempre culaquier edad es buena. peronalment creo que la mejor edad es siempre la que uno tien. Por cierto, muy de agradecer tu avatar con D. Qujote y Sancho de mi tierra, soy de La MAncha como ellos.

One of my favorite songs is "Impossible Dream" from the musical "Man From La Mancha." I like what it says. :)

Best regards.
