    All true wealth is biological.

    Tests are a gift. And great tests are a great gift. To fail the test is misfortune. But to refuse the test is to refuse the gift, and something worse, more irrevocable, than misfortune.

    A bus station is where the bus stops.

    A train station is where the train stops.

    A work station.......................

    And my personal music mantra, "play it like you mean it".....
