"The master makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him, he is always doing both." (Lao Tzu)   6th Century BC

Wonderful quote, Dennis, and very true.  :flowers: I've always thought that if you work at what you love to do, you never have to work a day in your life.  :thankyou: for posting.
Cheers,

Having a hard time with the PB site this morning. Still running extremely slow for me. Oh well, I'll try again.

As Jani has just said, an excellent quote. Now when I get asked if I'm still 'mucking about' .... I can reply, 'no, I'm working.'  Working at mucking about really, but they don't need to know that!  :whistle:

Also, thankyou for the link Dennis. I hope all the Canucks out there take a looksee. It'll make you want to get out your buckteeth and beaver tails!  ;D (since I'm only Canadian by association, I just got the teeth!  :2funny: )
Cheers, Val

Agreed.  All those years of tearing into aircraft electronics boxes was playtime.
