Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Break a string etc.


Isn't all this rather silly....superstitions
playing such an intense roll in our
behavior?   Just to clarify...my "break a string"
comment was simply meant to say, go out there and
give it your all.  Nothing about sprites, or evil
spirits, or superstition was intended.

To all my fellow achievers, NBTV, Measuring Man,
etc... I wish God's blessing and the best of all
that life has to give.  Don't break a thing! There I said it.
