<shameful look> He he he... that's a confusion I make since I began learning English. I don't know why I make it (sister and daughter are different enough words), and so sporadically (it comes back every two or three years...). Freud would probably have a lot to say about this... :))) As a conclusion, I did mean "sister" :( .

Less than masculine? Well, I feel I behave personally quite masculine (ask Jan about that, he'll agree. It annoys him enough like that :)) ). But it's true that I have a high understanding of how precious is life since my early childhood. Strange that I didn't become a vegetarian (not that I haven't toyed with the idea. But I just can't stand the idea of never eating a good entrecôte ever again in my life :))) ). But I agree about not being a typical hunter/gatherer (but not discoverer, on the contrary! I love discovering things, I just don't want to kill to discover them :) ). Not that I miss that: we're advanced enough that we don't need hunting anymore, so why keep these behaviours instead of moving on? :)) Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
