George, I gather I have given you great offense. I do apologize. I have 
been less than tactful in my several attempts to gently point out that you 
are not the only person on this list who has lead a rich and full life of 
multiple accomplishments in many areas and hope that you would show more 
interest in celebrating their accomplishments than advancing your own.

Life is indeed good. It's because of this fact that I have never 
understood the attraction some persons appear to have for engaging in a 
perpetual game of "Can You Top This." Maybe you would care to advance your 
theory in this regard.

And yes, I have shown very poor manners in this note. I apologize to the 
list members and will make no further  ad hominem commentary..
