    Forace´s Legacy - Swap off when you are down.

    It's better to set goals that one cannot acheive than to settle for mediocrity.

    Are you Maltese. Lee? I never knew that.

    A few thousand years ago the Pheonicans(?) went off in their boats. The wind took some towards Malta, and the rest ended up in Leboland - so the story goes. Many of the words are universal I beleive - I can understand some.

    Amiel while Maltese is an Arabic Idiom, geographically we are considered part of Europe. Malta is also a full member of the EU, though when I mention this to people from other EU countries, most don't actually know. Our good mate Frank Gerdell apoligized to me for not knowing. I laughed, why would the average German care anyway... Malta is tiny only 1/7 the size of the ACT...
