Summit, that puts a big smile on my face. Next time you talk to Samuel, tell him thanks. We're big into research on BBC, and we depend upon our resident research librarian, badknees, to keep us well-fed.

I actually communicated with Samuel this morning; he happens to be flying in to El Paso this week to give a talk at UTEP on the Big Bend Reach of the Rio Grande.

Oh, man....you're killing me. I'm all the way over here in Dallas, but I'd give my left arm to attend that talk. But then, sadly, I'd only be able to paddle in circles.  :icon_wink:

Save the arm!  I'll see if I can get him to give a talk in the Metroplex.  Check your PMs.   :victory:

Oh God I was laughing and trying to explain why I was laughing.

By the way my old line was I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

The views expressed may not be mine in five minutes.

Fair enough. But I do need to give you your props on the ambidextry. I read that aloud to my family and the room broke into guffaws and groans. In the best way.
