I agree 100%, and not only because I happen to be married to the guy. A club, for me, is a structure to do things with people, and if I'm doing those things with those people already I don't really want the structure. When I was younger, I used to enjoy the organizational and "ritual" things of a club - the game aspects, in fact - immensely, but now it would just be a chore. And yes, I'll gladly cook for a crowd somewhere in the middle of May :-) (garden party, anyone? our sorry excuse for a lawn might be up to scratch then) Irina -- Back up, but not perfect yet: ---------------------------------------------------------------------- | Experience is what you get when you were expecting something else. | ----------------------------------------------------------------------
