You got it, Linda, as did everyoner else. Having a spotty time here so maybe by tomorrow I'll have a proper big X board, and ten new Q's. Thanks for waiting guys.

Thanks for playing Linda

I'm so sorry for all who've been patiently waiting for me to be active again in the game; its medical and I'll just leave it at that. I miss you guys, and hope to be up and running this weekend (I say this time wise due to a scheduled procedure that should help, and its tomorrow, well really now today, on Friday.) C U gamers ASAP on my end. Thank you for your patience.

Hi guys, I am on a borrowed computer at the moment, and am stuck in a hotel out of town for awhile w/o my laptop, which is on the fritz. I am experiencing Lightfoot/corfid-withdrawal . I'll be on-line only for very limited 5 - 10 minutes, etc, here and there when I can borrow this computer as I am now.

Please accept my apologies for lyrics being down for so long, and for awhile longer as well. Bigger fish in life is frying whether I like it or not - I don't

I miss all of you in all aspects of corfid; and lyrics quizzers as well. At least I can listen to The Man's music for now.

Hey geo Steve, good to hear from you. Thanks for checking in, even if on a borrowed computer. "Quizzers" will be here, as will we, when you are ready to return. Take care.

I was wondering what happened to you, Steve. Glad to hear you're fine and considering returning to corfid.

Kind words jj, and you do the same this summer !

he has to be a well-read man,
Well said Steve
But Well read??
Maybe maybe not
A couple of years ago I was bitterly disapointed after I had given Gord a specially found second hand copy of one of my favourite non fiction books
"The River That God Forgot" by Richard Collier

Please see my earlier posting at:-
http://www.corfid.com/vbb/showthread...t=river+forgot
This superbly written book describes the activities of the Amazon rubber barons at the beginning of the 20th century,a book that I felt would appeal to Gordon because it is largely set in Manaus, yes "Mann-owse" the Brazilian city he had visited and found "The No Hotel" in.
In the hotel the morning after I had given him the book I tried to stress that I hoped he would enjoy it but he calmly responded by saying something like
"But I don't read books"!!

He probably reads the sports pages of the local papers and laments the crappy teams we have but still loves them just the same..
just like I do.

I'm sure I read somewhere that the inspiration to write "The Wreck" came while reading about it in Macleans or Newsweek and realizing that the event was going to slip under most people's radar & disappear into local history.

So I'm sure he does read but books aren't everyone's passion and when you are busy nothing is as frustrating as trying to read a book in five minute snatches. I love to read but sometimes newspapers, magazines & internet forums are all I can manage!
