(I know this is supposed to elicit the Can Do, and Don’t Hold Me Down spirit.  But it also puts me in mind of 1 Corinthians 13:11  –  “When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”  Of course, I had NO idea of the actual chapter and verse, but that’s what Google is for!  Right?  1 Rave 1:1  –  “Be well and doeth good, friends.”)   —   YUR
