Could you state these rules?

How many follow up posts by the OP are necessary?

How long should these posts be?

Should all contributors be thanked individually?

I don't want to break these rules and end up being shunned by sensitive readers.

Kahn: Thanks for the grin.

The only reason I visit this board from time to time is for a few laughs.
Having spent the last 3 days with my children and my grandchildren, even though I care a great deal about all of them, the unencombered single life style has a certain amount of appeal

Thanks Dex, for showing that's not always the case.

Milton, Meetup has lots of different groups....quite interesting. Even some groups for people of our age (I'm assuming you and I are in the same vicinity).

Jarhead, I totally agree---Khan definitely helped break the tension with that list of questions! You go, Khan!
