Wine for breakfast seemed quite reasonable once, in a previous life, but only if there was no rum.
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

Rum goes good with a number of other liquids such as Coke and juices. But unfortunately, it no longer goes good with my head.

Time is tricky. The amount of time you have is always inversely proportional to the time you need.

Rollicking : boisterously carefree, joyful, or high-spirited .

High-spirited horses can be a joy to ride is you have a good seat and the experience needed to stay tight. But if experience is lacking you could find yourself becoming an unintentional wingless flier.
