Just thought I'd let you know that I may not be able to access a puter for the next fortnight. Have fun while I'm away and don't to anything I would

I am slowly launching a project on how to prevent kids from making a mess out of their lives. Being a father of three and having lost a cousin and a couple of friends and aquaintances (as well as nearly losing my own mind*) I feel that this is worth spending some efforts on.
I hope you feel the same and will help me with relevant informations and advice. Thank you in advance!
From my own experience I can say that it's easy to show and tell kids how dangerous drugs can be - but at the same time they are confronted with a lot of stories from their friends on how fantastic life on drugs can be. The difficulty lies in teaching the kids to stay on the right side of a very fine line.
I have not told my own kids much about drugs yet. The reason is that I am not proud of what I have done myself when I was younger. More important: If I tell them that I used quite a lot of cannabis, speed and LSD and (seemingly) got away with it unharmed - would I not tempt them to take the risc themselves?
Enough said for now, I guess. I am looking forward to read your postings!
(*some may think I lost it all - I hope I have proved them wrong by this posting )
Back in the saddle

School is not what it used to be. This time I was served breakfast, lunch, tea, souper - and inbetween there were a lot of coffee-breaks. And it was all free. The room I slept in was cleaned every day - a hotel could not have done the job better.
Only problem I had were the teachers. That was not new to me. They tried to learn me how to build a website. They failed utterly of course.
Ah, well. At least I now know what to learn and how to learn it. Maybe some day I will eventually have taught myself.
Good to be back BTW. And to all the ladies who sent me hugs and kisses (you know who you are and why you did it): You really helped me. A lot. And even though most of us are only "virtual friends" I will never forget you and how much you meant to me.
Back in school
