  1. @SheilaCSR: Yup, I did. 😉

    @Avitable: I be!

    @NWCWD: I’m meh-gnificiant.

    @Sybil Law: I live to serve. 😉

    @CMG: Hence the book. You also start by losing the low points, so it’s the survival of the fittest IQ points. I’m only left with the high ones now.

  2. Just last night, my middle boy was asking me about the A-Team (and the theme). I filled him in with what I knew.

    As for me, I’ve been watching Rat Patrol on a regular basis. (Victor was such a young-looking German officer.)
