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.
Mary, our Heavenly Mother, implores those who receive Holy Communion Daily, or at least Weekly, to Offer their Lives. TEXT OF THE LIFE OFFERING: "My dear Jesus, before the Holy Trinity, Our Heavenly Mother, and the whole Heavenly Court, united with Your most Precious Blood and Your Sacrifice on Calvary, I hereby Offer my whole Life to the Intention of Your Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Together with my life, I place at Your disposal all Holy Masses, all my Holy Communions, all Rosaries, all acts of consecration, all my good deeds, all my sacrifices, and the suffering of my entire life for the Adoration and Supplication of the Holy Trinity, for Unity in our Holy Mother Church, for the Holy Father and Priests, for good Priestly vocations, and for all souls until the end of the world. O my Jesus, please accept my life Sacrifice and my offerings and give me Your grace that I may persevere obediently until my death." Amen. https://www.avemariamaternostra.com/life-offering-promises.html 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 promises in the link: those who make it seriously will face no Purgatory (promise 5) since they would have completed it here, will have all their loved ones released from Purgatory the day they offer their life with intent to persevere (promise 4), and can save the souls of all their family members in due time by their life offering (promise 3). It will benefit all souls who have ever lived until time's end (promise 2) A simple effective way for thousands of us to save millions of souls. Inflamed in Large Letters of Love, you will have your name written in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary forever (promise 1).

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.
Children say that people are hung sometimes for speaking the truth.

If I am not in the state of grace, may God put me there; and if I am, may God so keep me

Good to hear you will post occasionally from airline lounges.

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,
