be reading my old messages and though it would be a good idea to post it.
I don't know who the "Dave" you are referring to is. However, I believe
fantasy kindoms are wonderous, beautiful places and I don't think anyone
would really want to inject reality into them.
I think the message might be a little too long to use as a footer on
anyone's messages, though.
