Sort of flattered to be called an illuminatus by some of you - and thanks for the welcomes. Dirk E. - yes indeed, I have long been an admirer of his Tepa: illuminatior est quam ego. And Gristopher G., the erudite Norman - why not? But while I've heard of the Seven Sages of the ancient Greeks, I know not the 'Bamboo Grove'. I seek illumination. Who are the sages and which one am I? Ray =============================================== (home) (work) ===============================================
