So, is it just the friends I attract?  questions are so much fun, probably
even more fun than having definate answers, I love the ones that spawn an
exponential number of new questions to explore.  I am looking forward to
the answers to these questions, as I have pondered these but they are so
down the list that they hadn't been asked yet.  (yes it is terrifing that
with all the questions I ask, that they are just the very tip of the
iceburg of the things that I ponder)

oh, I get a scooby snack as I estimated the SCA dates right when I sent
them to Isa right after she asked...  The SCA was 1 and 2 months when I was
born, so I can actually keep this one strait.  So Miri, just remember the
SCA is 5 months older than John/Crimthon...
