No thanks to me, but thanks to NDoggie (if I remember correctly), you've taken up fishing and probably provide fish for your whole village. I wouldn't be surprised if you have become a fishing instructor to boot! (Easy does it.)
Now as far as the content of the link, I also agree with you and 2Domer, and, like 2Domer, I relate so well to the article (as my mother says, "Oh, just buck up! Don't be such a wimp.") that I know it can't be the complete explanation. Life is tough, no matter how tough you try to be. We all need a little luck.
