RE: How Green Was My Valley

From: An Exhausted Fan

After having been in the presence of greatness I am now going into hiding.I
remember seeing the awesome majesty of the Grand Canyon for the first time.
I had to crawl (trembling) to the edge  to  a spot where there was not even
the hint of a railing or anything that would slow your fall into the depths
of all that grandeur. One would not even have bounced before reaching the
final conclusion.

Watching the tag team wrestling of Bill and CHick represents such an experience.

A final comparison and then silence. When Mark Twain made his great
European tour (and not a word about hostas mind you) he spent a week in the
Black Forest and the surrounding farmlands.He observed a particular
phenomenon that might have some relevance to this present discussion. He
opined that the size of the manure piles prominently displayed  at these
farms seemed to determine the status of that paticular farm family in the
community.An amazing observation.

"History doesn't repeat itself, but it rhymes.""Even a lie is a psychic
fact." -Carl Jung, psychiatrist (1875-1961)
