Turned on, saw Jan's tasty recipe and your shortest ever post Eddie.

Good words though.

You live, learn, think a little and pass on knowledge.

Brittania Encyclopedia may have also said what Wikipedia says about "Henry David Thoreau; July 12th 1817 – May 6th 1862, he was an American author, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, historian, and leading transcendentalist.He is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay Resistance to Civil Government (also known as Civil Disobedience), an argument for disobedience to an unjust state."

There you have it.
