  1. Did you do it for love?
    Did you do it for money?
    Did you do it for spite?
    Did you think you had to, honey?
    Who is gonna make it?

  3. I seem to be standing still - I'd better find out why!

    I love James Thurber, Ron - one of my favourite Americans.

    He also said, I think,
    "It's better to have loafed and lost then never to have loafed at all". :-)
