I'll be in Denver, Colorado February 15-19.
Then Las Vegas February 19-22, returning February 22 evening.
I will be watching from 40000 feet and other locations, so behave...


I'll be leaving some things for my fellow Super Moderators to use while I am gone.

First for Myk (Avel du)... a brain.

Why, anybody can have a brain. That's
a very mediocre commodity. Every
pusillanimous creature that crawls
on the earth -- or slinks through
slimy seas has a brain!
Back where
I come from we have universities,
seats of great learning -- where men
go to become great thinkers.
And when they come out, they think
deep thoughts -- and with no more
brains than you have.... But! They
have one thing you haven't got! A
diploma!
Therefore, by virtue of the authority
vested in me by the Universitatus
Committeeatum e plurbis unum, I hereby
confer upon you the honorary degree
of Th.D.
Dr. of
Thinkology!


For Len (LeonardoDaBenz)....courage.

As for you, my
fine friend -- you're a victim of
disorganized thinking. You are under
the unfortunate delusion that simply
because you run away from danger,
you have no courage. You're confusing
courage with wisdom. Back where I
come from, we have men who are called
heroes. Once a year, they take their
fortitude out of mothballs and parade
it down the main street of the city.
And they have no more courage than
you have. But! They have one thing
that you haven't got! A medal!
Therefore -- for meritorious
conduct, extraordinary valor,
conspicuous bravery against wicked
witches, I award you the Triple Cross.

For Mary Kay (simplyslk)...Heart

As for you, my galvanized friend,
you want a heart! You don't know
how lucky you are not to have one.
Hearts will never be practical until
they can be made unbreakable. I could
have been a world figure, a power
among men, a - a successful wizard,
had I not been obstructed by a heart.
...back where I come from there are
men who do nothing all day but good
deeds. They are called phil...er --
er -- phil -- er, yes...good-deeddoers.
And their hearts are no bigger
than yours. But! They have one
thing you haven't got! A testimonial!
Therefore, in consideration of your
kindness, I take pleasure at this
time in presenting you with a small
token of our esteem and affection.
And remember, my sentimental
friend....
...that a heart is not judged by how
much you love, but by how much you
are loved by others.


Good people of SLKWorld,
I, your Wizard par ardua ad alta, am
about to embark upon a hazardous and
technically unexplainable journey
into the outer stratosphere.
To confer, converse, and otherwise
hob-nob with my brother wizards.
And I hereby decree that until what
time -- if any -- that I return, Avel du, by virtue of his highly
superior brains, shall rule in my
stead...assisted by simplyslk, by
virtue of her magnificent heart...and
LeonardoDaBenz, by virtue of his courage!
Obey them as you would me!

Tim/woz53...you will be scarecrow in April :D

Jeff, Good luck on your adventure into the upper troposphere ! I will keep my fingers crossed for you that you have a wonderful time. Having spent my whole working life fixing those aluminium death traps, i know how scary it can be when they finally slam the door shut and you are on your way. Regards, Robbie.

Frank Morgan played 5 parts in that iconic movie. Famous for so many reasons. ... There's no place like Home. 😊👍

6 parts but close

he played the Wizard and five other roles: the carnival huckster "Professor Marvel", the gatekeeper at the Emerald City, the coachman of the carriage drawn by "The Horse of a Different Color", the Emerald City guard (who initially refuses to to let Dorothy and her friends in to see the Wizard), and the Wizard's scary face projection
