My wishes for you also Greg.
"The World Must Conform to Our Lord and not He to it." Rev. Dennis Fahey CSSP

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit." Cardinal Pie of Potiers

Good riddance you old fart!

haha!  Just kidding Greg!  How did you like my feeble attempt at dry, British, Greggish, irreverence?

Take it easy buddy!  Enjoy your beautiful wife....and make sure all of your travelling does not come at the expense of your marriage.

I love your pragmatism. Take care.

God bless you in your work, Greg, and help you keep the Faith.
Please listen to the frequent messages and take heed of the directions given from Our Living Lord and Our Loving Lady from around the world here: https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/ Great things are at stake. Please consecrate your life to the Blessed Mother so that the Kingdom of God may come, "Ad Sanctam Trinitatem per Mariam, Ut adveniat Regnum Deum, adveniat Regnum Mariae, ergo TOTUS TUUS ego sum, MARIA" See http://www.maria-domina-animarum.net/en/flowers/1-250

Mary, our Heavenly Mother, implores those who receive Holy Communion Daily, or at least Weekly, to Offer their Lives. TEXT OF THE LIFE OFFERING, adapted and pluralized: Dear Lord Jesus, before the Holy Trinity, Our Heavenly Mother, and the whole Heavenly Court, united with Your most Precious Blood and Your Sacrifice on Calvary, We hereby Offer our whole Lives to the Intention of Your Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Together with our life, we place at Your disposal all Holy Masses, all our Holy Communions, all Rosaries, all acts of consecration, all our good deeds, all our sacrifices, and the suffering of our entire life for the Adoration and Supplication of the Holy Trinity, for Unity in our Holy Mother Church, for the Holy Father, Pope Francis the First; and for His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. For all the Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, for all Bishops of the Universal Church that they may be true Apostles and Shepherds; and for Priests, Nuns and Monks, for good Priestly and Religious Vocations, and for All Souls until the end of the world. O my Jesus, please accept our life Sacrifice and our offerings and give us Your grace that we may all persevere obediently until death. Amen." https://marianapostolate.com/life-offering/ It is recommended that you make this Life Offering as soon as you feel ready, and to renew it from time to time.

Please read the Blessed Mother's amazing promises in the link: A simple effective way for thousands of us to save millions of souls. The Doctors and Apostles say if we save even just one other soul through prayer and sacrifice, we also ensure the salvation of our own! Let us Offer our Lives in Sacrifice to Jesus and Mary Today, to save, if it were possible, all souls everywhere.

Bangkok, Rangoon, Tokyo, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Sao Paolo, Brazil what could possibly go wrong?

Luckily, I don't much like gooks or darkies. ;)

And Moscow who have the best looking women in the world are not buying, nor would the boss sell to them.  They are clever bastards and would develop this themselves and probably poach our best people.  Our developers are Ukrainian and Russian mathematicians and computer boffins.

Good Luck and God Bless!
The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
    It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
    It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
    And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;
    There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
    Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
    World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.

... what will you we do without us you to entertain you us

Fixed it for you Greg.  Honestly you will be sorely missed on the forum.  Despite your views on lying I think you always (? ;)) presented the unvarnished truth - as you see it, but often  ;D right on target.

(I bet you scored high on the IQ tests that you posted! You sure know a lot about everything.)

I know you will be successful. May God be with you.
[Matthew 8:26]  And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then rising up he commanded the winds, and the sea, and there came a great calm.

[Job  38:1-5]  Then the Lord answered Job out of a whirlwind, and said: [2] Who is this that wrappeth up sentences in unskillful words? [3] Gird up thy loins like a man: I will ask thee, and answer thou me. [4] Where wast thou when I laid up the foundations of the earth? tell me if thou hast understanding. [5] Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

Good luck with that job.

That thread is very difficult to read.  The 'serpent of rationalism'.

Quote
Here is a denial of absolutes, of universals, of metaphysics. On these the pragmatist
turns his back and turns towards adequacy, that is to say towards efficiency, "towards facts,
towards action and towards power.'  Here is the flight from reason; here is the antithesis
and enemy of natural law. Here are the Sophists come to life. And here is anti-intellectualism.
For (William) James speaks of the "trail of the serpent of rationalism, of intellectualism."

Exerpt from The Natural Law and Pragmatism
They shall not be confounded in the evil time; and in the days of famine they shall be filled
Psalms 36:19

You cannot even take bloody phone chargers around Asia now incase they explode in flight.

There has to be a business for flying with very little and having everything you need at your hotel in  box when you get there.  Chargers, cables, adapters to suit the country, nail scissors, etc.

I'm tempted to FedEx my stuff to myself.  I would if it wasn't so damned expensive,
