Welcome! Nice to have you here.

Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.

Hi nice to meet you
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Greetings and welcome!

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Yes, it made a prominent appearance in the BBC's recent series Life on Mars. A 'must see' if you haven't seen it. The BBC series that is, not the US rip-off.
