    That looks great! Thanks
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    Wow you're quick off the mark Suzi, here's me thinking I'd get a rest before I needed to start marking the quiz.

    I can award a first to answer virtual badge if I so think fit
