  • I think you walk the talk more than most. It’s very, very clear that it’s your vocation. I read your anecdote about your experience with an MS patient earlier in your career and your compassion is so clear. I admire you. There. I said it.

    Keep doing what you’re doing!

  • Speaking a 2nd language is very good for the brain I think. (Or learning one if you don’t have one already.)

    • Agree I wish I could do it. I failed to be conversational in Slovene, but at least I can order two beers;-)

      • I think Slovene will be a challenging language – the pronounciation? Interesting grammar with 6 cases though?

        • It was. You forgot the dual (two). Rad bi pivo, Rad bi pivi Rad bi piva, Rad by piv (I (a male) want a beer, I want two beers, I want 3 or 4 beers I want five or more beers)….the verbs relating to doing or having done etc etc. The language is phonetic so it should be easy to pronounce but if you have a yorkshire accent and you speak to people, you look at their face and and sometimes no lights go on, becuase if it is not quite right, it is wrong. Try saying Ptuj (an old town, where there is no other place that sounds remotely similar) and you just get blank looks. Having said all this the Slovenes are lovely people.

    you say more than most when it comes to toeing the line, and for that I salute you.

    You talk a lot of sense.

    Ps when can I go an EBV trial? 😉 ?

  • The actual America expression is, ‘you talk the talk but can you walk the walk?’

    The Brits have managed to mangle it.
