Is That A Statement Or A Question?

The unstoppable march of the upward inflection.

When people tell me anything that sounds like a question I always say "I don't know, you are supposed to be telling me"

And when anyone says "Basically", I inform them that I am quite capable of understanding the complicated version.

When I hear someone say "Basically". I always think they are likely to be trying to convince me that a lie is true.

i think you will be, in the fullness of time, by taking into consideration the pros and cons and not withstanding the ups and downs normally associated with the in's and out's, and based on the balance of probability of both yin and yang providing the infinite possibility of being well - basically right

Yes reading odds and sods now and then from someone who is usually here and there doing this and that with some so and so or other writing whatever and whenever the mood takes him, Clear as mud I say. I would say that his statement is a definately possible piece of historicaly correct piece of perfect fiction. Absolutely described by a classic proffessor in the art of commercial seamanship. it's a good job he isn't a farmer we would be knee deep in .... ....

I'd like to say Enjoy Borneo TCA, but that might turn out to be expecting too much.
Have as good a time as is possible and stay safe.
