Wish They All Could Be Mede & Persian Girls

MM & Pete,

Thanks for the encouragement. I agree there are bigger problems that mankind needs to solve, and there are a few forward-looking ideas being put into action, like the Norwegian seed bank.

It's just here on this little corner of the planet we have to concentrate on problems that WE can solve. And to my great surprise, we have been able to figure out some very interesting things. Instead of hiding them under a bushel, they're being stored up in (Internet) heaven. Download and store it away for a nuclear rainy day.

[Pete, I'll have to take your word for it about the Persian ladies. In general though I haven't found that "Earth girls are easy"! But can millions of years of evolution be wrong? They're that way for a reason.]
