Bargyla has shown great restraint and poise in her apologies - I tip my hat
to you for being mature and definitely courteous. So let us discuss the
issues of sustainable agriculture and let us mix those discussions with our
own personal twists and idiosyncrasies, cuz after all we're "just" human
with many foibles - 'specially those Aussies!
