Oscar Wilde died too soon; he owes you one.
Well said, and happy retirement!

Subject: Re: Twain on Moderation?
I used to say "Moderation is a good thing as long as you don't take it to
extremes." Sadly as far as I can tell, Twain didn't say the one about
moderation in moderation. When checking out one of these, I usually go to
Google Books and search ending in 1920. True that he said some gems in
speeches that may not have made it to print in his lifetime, but a zero hit
count is pretty telling. Unless it turns up in a speech, this goes to that
mountainous scrap heap of things that sound like Twain but aren't.
Also, in case anyone out there is following my adventures, as of the 31st
I'm removing lines 2-5 on my sig file below, to be replaced with "Retired
