Thanks for the information, Dirk and for all that you and the MODs do.

We certainly do appreciate that Mr. Baker takes the time to answer us individually, and I will certainly try to keep my questions concise.

If I fail in this, I trust that you or one of the other MODs will let me know.

Please thank Mr. Baker and the others for us.

Ta!

Dear donnarose -

I certainly will. And as I told Tracy in a PM to her:

This is after all, Tom's on-line home, and we are his guests. The house rules here are really very few, and quite simple to follow. And they exist for eveyone's betterment and enjoyment.

Best,
Dirk :ugeek:

This is a very good point here. It just occurred to me, as I may be guilty of the offense somewhat, that just a little conversation turns lengthy considering that there are actually over 200 of us now!This could get ugly, especially now that my mug is here :lol:

:lol: Tom is the only one who can get away with calling me "Goldie" but I see this time it's "Gold".
I think he's been looking in another place to see that and is having a bit of fun with me. But how does one address him when not intending to be quite so 'familiar' but still respectful? Gosh, I'm beginning to think like a French courtier dithering out in the hallway before going into a crowded palace room!!! :shock:

I do want thank Tom for the time he takes reading the questions (mine included) and responding. The variety amazes me and I'm hoping we keep him entertained when he's at the computer.

I enjoy reading Tom's answers to our questions for they are both witty and insightful. I liked the response he gave me concerning playing heroes or villains. Did any of you ever hear the saying one man's villain is another's hero? History is full of heroes and villains and whether you feel someone is a hero or a villain is dependent upon your point of view. For instance, in America, George Washington is considered a hero (although we often forget about how much the French helped) yet in England, at the same time, Washington was viewed as a traitor and there was a bounty placed for his capture. You have to wonder where the line was drawn between Washington being viewed as someone fighting for the independence of his country and being considered a traitor by the King? In American westerns, the cavalry always came over the hilltop to rescue the pioneers from the savage Indians. Yet, in the eyes of the Indians, it was the cavalry and their pioneer cohorts who were the evil ones. This line appears in fantasy too. In Doctor Who, while the Doctor was busy saving the universe and being a hero to humanity, how many Daleks, Cybermen and other odd assortment of alien invaders considered the Doctor's efforts to be evil in their eyes? It makes you wonder about the fine line that exists between good and evil.

I would love to hear Tom read, and maybe revise, the Book of Genesis. Maybe he could give God a good sense of humor?
