    Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

              You should see some of the more irrelevant things I think about posting here that never make it past my internal censor!

                It's great to know that he has come at last. I salute and toast him.

                  Another revived thread from Day One.
                  Good story and it's encouraging to know famlies are traced and informed of their loved ones rsting place as a matter of course.
