Thanks for the generous pick 'sly'. And thanks to everyone for their excellent submissions. I very much enjoy following the entries each time around. Thought it might be a good time to jump in with one of my own.

I never cease to be amazed at the depth and breadth of interpretations that each topic can generate. I'll do my best to come up with a good 'thinker' in a couple of months for November/December.
