Hi CG (aka S)

No worries will make my own plans getting used to riding on my own  :)

Great report Gunda, I was wondering what you consult on?

I used to be a Mining Engineer( BSc Mining Eng GDE and Manager's ticket) , but slowly migrated into IT about 25 Years ago.

I do the annual update to the mine's I.T. Business Impact and Risk Assesmant - My report helps the IT guys do their continuity, disaster recovery and crisis management planning.

OK so help, an 11 year old just asked me whats the difference between a rock and a stone?
When is this "Old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

Ouch. Not sure. Good question
I know a mine mines ROCK not STONES.
Illegal bonking in Islam gets you STONED not ROCKED.
Stub your foot on a ROCK.
Load a STONE in your catapult.
Decorate a garden with ROCKS.
Scale of sizes on a coal mine is duff, peas, nuts, STONES, cobbles and {can't remember the bigger sizes}
Size?

I'll as Prof Sue, my big sister - used to teach linguistics at Wits
Chinese uses same character ( 石 ) for both.

Also, have a little back trouble at the moment. Not too bad but hoping it will clear up before I go to KZN.

   ( don't tell anyone, but I fell off a chair at the pub while watching the Bokke beat England and hit the leg of the chair into the small of my back )
