Do you think that the time is now opportune for some incantations to call the Captain?
The post below was excellent. I tried to reply to it but the reply window would not open!

The Price of Children
This is just too good not to pass on to all. This is something absolutely positive for a change. I have repeatedly seen the breakdown
of the cost of raising a child, but this is the first time I have seen the rewards listed this way. It's nice. The government recently calculated the cost of raising a child from birth to 18 and came up with $160,140.00 for a middle income family. Talk about sticker shock! That doesn't even touch college tuition. But $160,140.00 isn't so bad if you break it down.
It translates into:
* $8,896.66 a year,
* $741.38 a month, or
* $171.08 a week.
* That's a mere $24.24 a day!
* Just over a dollar an hour.
Still, you might think the best financial advice is don't have children
if you want to be 'rich.' Actually, it is just the opposite.
What do you get for your $160,140.00?
* Naming rights. First, middle, and last!
* Glimpses of God every day.
* Giggles under the covers every night.
* More love than your heart can hold.
* Butterfly kisses and Velcro hugs.
* Endless wonder over rocks, ants, clouds, and warm cookies.
* A hand to hold, usually covered with jelly or chocolate.
* A partner for blowing bubbles, flying kites
* Someone to laugh yourself silly with, no matter what the boss said or how your stocks performed that day.
For $160,140.00, you never have to grow up. You get to:
* carve pumpkins,
* play hide-and-seek,
* catch lightning bugs, and
* never stop believing in Santa Claus.
You have an excuse to:
* keep reading the Adventures of Piglet and Pooh,
* watching Saturday morning cartoons,
* going to Disney movies, and
* wishing on stars.
* You get to frame rainbows, hearts, and flowers under refrigerator magnets and collect spray painted noodle wreaths for Christmas, hand prints set in clay on Mother's Day, and cards with backward letters for Father's Day.
For a mere $24.24 a day, there is no greater bang for your buck. You get to be a hero just for:
* retrieving a Frisbee off the garage roof,
* taking the training wheels off a bike,
* removing a splinter,
* filling a wading pool,
* coaxing a wad of gum out of bangs, and coaching a baseball team that never wins but always gets treated to ice cream regardless.
You get a front row seat to history to witness the:
* first step,
* first word,
* first bra,
* first date, and
* first time behind the wheel.
You get to be immortal. You get another branch added to your family tree, and if you're lucky, a long list of limbs in your obituary called
grandchildren and great grandchildren.
You get an education in: psychology, nursing, criminal justice, communications, and human intimacyuality that no college can match.
In the eyes of a child, you rank right up there under God. You have all the power to heal a boo-boo, scare away the monsters under the bed,
patch a broken heart, police a slumber party, ground them forever, and love them without limits, So, love without counting the cost.
That is quite a deal for the price!
Love & enjoy your children & grandchildren!
The best investment you'll make.
P.S if you dont have kids not to worry. peaceful vacations can be had i am told!!

I am afraid I'll have to take a few weeks sabbatical from LN, becuase of work, work and more work. Hope that hon. selector will select a new skipper-or at least someone to do the 'acting'. Btw, let's clear the confusion abt Prince-come on guys, there can be two ppl with the same name... so let's give him a break :-))
It takes a lot to be a step parent. And what you wrote was awesome. To accept and love someone else's child as your own is one of the greatest test for any human being.
For that, I salute you.
BOWLED OVER,yes. But just by work. If that isn't an anti-climax, what is? :-))
Great to see your 'Kokilawi' skills. keep it up :-))
adieu, guys and girls.
