    I don't know Wise, my three boys would be out the door after third paragraph. Or politly I hope said, never mind lets go fishing.

    A bit long and complicated. 2 cents

    Leo, you know, that was what my kids use to do with me. They tell me that I explain more than they want to know. I don't think that my students dare tell that to me but I can tell when their eyes glaze over . It's that professorial gene. I will try again. Wise.

    Wise, I can't emphasize how much it helped me understand the functioning of the spinal cord when you explained that humans are structured like dogs or other 4-legged creatures, with the anus being the "bottom" of the body. I was always confused why "walkers" still had B/B and sexual problems if they could walk. Well, duh ... makes perfect sense now.

    Since both my children fall into that grade level, perhaps I tend to think at that level now. Proof that parenting does indeed cause brain damage.

    Good luck.
