1 TIME TO BE ME - by Janet Kira Lessin
Sasha and I have been in an accelerated dating frenzy since our lovers of four years dumped us two days before 09-11. At that time we made a conscious decision to give it all our gusto and date like there was no tomorrow, for we surely didnít know if that was a distinct possibility or not. And here we are a year and a half later, and the world situation is even more precarious.
We had high hopes weíd have our tantric-polyamorous family firmly in place and weíd be well on the way to getting off the grid and establishing our self-sustainable community. We saw our imaginary family, those special 6-12 adults, fall in love, grow closer by the days and make love as a group at least twice-monthly. The house was over 90% complete and the family business, The School of Tantra, doubled her revenues from the added labor of all our extra helping hands.
Truth is, our worldís nothing near what we imagined itíd be. Weíve had a series of not-so-great relationships which would almost seem humorous if they hadnít been so painful. We differed with live-ins on issues across the board: from ethics to finances to labor to lovemaking to sharing time. The builders took off with our building fund and just before they left, my female lover ran off with the lead builder to be monogamous only to end up returning to her greatest love, cocaine. To top it all off, another woman Iíd fallen in love with, one of the finest souls on this planet, died in a flood.
The only one thatís left here with us is Melanie. Sheís wonderful. I admire her more the longer I get to know her. However for now, weíve decided weíre just friends. SP went over to Oahu for a job and the next leg of his cosmic pilgrimage. He says heíll remain connected to us always, and considers himself to be our Oahu connection. Bottom line, weíve rented out most our units to "strangers". So much for community.
Sometimes, you just gotta laugh.
Time for reflection. Sasha and I decided to take February off, my birthday month. I turned 49. Wow. That was big. Last year in my 40's. It was good taking a break. Alone time. Time to find ourselves. Sasha and I grew closer. So lovely. We continue to grow closer every day. Divine. However, I believe the greatest benefit I gained this month was that I found my most precious gift ever.... Me.
Iíve always been a Pleaser. I donít think Iíve ever really known what Iíve truly wanted. As long as I can remember, Iíve been a reactionary system responding to external and never-ending stimuli. "Give me this," "Do that." "I want this." Even the unspoken words, energy and body language from those around me, unseen but felt, were extreme pressures to hypersensitive me to succumb to their wishes and please them. All of them. Each of them. Itís been exhausting.
Sasha and I made some major decisions. We realized living together with people is much harder than having sex with them. Dah, I know. Major revelation! However, Iím not into casual sex. Dilemma. Maybe. Not really. We came up with a plan.
We decided weíd go with what is and be in the now. We decided not to be so anxious and push things when they just arenít happening. Itís ok. We came to the conclusion that there IS something to that old magical attraction of chemistry. Chemistry shows that souls have a message for one anotherĖkarma to share. Maybe thereís something to be said for falling in love. And what could possibly be wrong with having sex for a while? Check that out fully before going any further. Think really long and hard before moving in together and if we decide to do so, get that pre-nuptial written and signed. In fact, take the extra time to write down just exactly what weíre agreeing to before we decide to cohabitate. And hey, living across the island in separate houses maybe isnít such a bad idea.
Actually, I donít think Iím ready to date again. Not just now. I have that part of me thatís just not ready to do that one again. And do I have to? Or maybe I do. Iím not sure. However, I know one thing. I know how the universe works and as the old Rolling Stones song goes, "You donít always get what you want. But you find sometimes, you get.... just what you need."
After all, I met Sasha, the greatest love of my life, right when I made a conscious decision to be celibate after being in relationships, non-stop, for over 30 years, since I began dating at age 13. Just when I gave up on ever having love in my life, along came Mr. Perfect. In fact, he was one better. Mr. Perfect was Dr. Perfect and he lived in a gorgeous home in paradise, and.. he wanted me! So we fell in love, mutually, equally, intensely and passionately despite the best laid plans of mice and men.
So sure, maybe by letting go the universe will deliver what we want. And maybe what we want, isnít what we think we want. Maybe. Whatever. What I do know is Iím no longer attached and Iím ever-so-happy with what I HAVE in my NOW.
Sometimes you just gotta smile.
2 FOUR MEN AND TWO
LADIES by Janet Kira Lessin
It's taken me five years tell what I'm about to reveal. I've been both proud and embarrassed that I simultaneously made love with four men and one woman. We let go, no holes barred and freely flowed with total abandon.
It had been a glorious day. Our house had been full with sixty-two free-spirited souls flowing to the songs of our two naked musicians, Stan and Vanessa. Stan--handsome, charismatic--resembled Jesus with his manicured beard, trim body and long flowing hair. Vanessa, sensuous and svelte, emphasized her stature with spike heals and a long, black cape. The cape highlighted her nakedness as it draped across her small, firm breasts. She lifted endless legs, dancing like a gazelle, tall and graceful and bent backwards in miraculous maneuvers while seductively stroking her mournful violin which wailed and moaned in tearful tones and triumphant tunes.
More people started to leave. After one particularly large group made their departure, I turned around to see who remained. Stan and Vanessa had taken a break, their instruments still visible, we knew they'd be back. Our long-time lovers, John and Jill snuggled in the corner. Gabriel, a lover I'd been with once before, had flown over from Oahu for this party and now hung back trying to find the time to talk with me alone. Sasha sauntered towards me and smiled, kissed me full on the lips then inquired, "Anyone feel like joining me in the hot tub"?
As the sun's final rays faded to reveal twilight's first stars, I undressed, grabbed a towel and made my way down the stairs to the hot tub nestled in the garden below. The night-blooming jasmine began to open and created an intoxicating aroma. I slipped my towel off, draped it across the banister and gently lowered myself into the inviting warm waters sighing as I settled between my beloved husband and my lover, Jill. I felt myself relax, tensions melt and my breathing slow to match the breathing of those around me. I felt shy as I smiled and looked around the circle, coyly connecting consciousness, one by one meeting the eyes of the sacred seven now assembled before me. We talked nonsensically, totally clueless, none of us realizing what was soon to transpire.
We dried off and returned to the living room. Someone asked Vanessa and Stan to play another song. obliged, reached for their instruments. "Wait", Stan commanded, "If we're to be nude, so must our audience". We laughed as we looked at each other and removed towels and sarongs. "Proceed", John said, "Your most gracious audience is now properly garbed and eagerly awaits the show."
I became totally enthralled in the movements of our performers. Was it my imagination or were they playing better than ever before? Vanessa was especially erotic. The crescendos of her instrument matched her movements and immersed us in seductive waves of bliss. Stan's smile contagiously affected us all, male and female, regardless of any previous sexual identifications. I saw everyone was in trance--hypnotized, mesmerized, energized. I was very turned on. It was inevitable; we couldn't help surrender.
Next thing I knew Jill and I were on our hands and knees facing each other and John and Sasha side-by-side their backs under us. Their lingams (penises) aligned so that Jill and I could easily access both as we honored their genitals they licked, stroked and sucked our yonis (vaginas). Jill and I alternated between sensuously kissing each other and licking the two lingams that bobbed between us. Gabriel and Stan inserted their throbbing members into our thoroughly moist yonis. I was in Seventh Heaven. Here I was honoring two of the most beautiful lingams I was ever blessed to have before me while kissing one of the most gorgeous Goddesses on this planet. In addition, I was being sent into bliss with two of my lovers kissing my clitoris while two other Adonises took turns thrusting in and out of my yoni. Vanessa decided to watch (as she did all evening), which added yet another level of eroticism. I could hardly believe what was happening. Part of me judged how naughty I was while another part giggled and applauded my courage and ability to turn on five awesome beings. I was in bliss, so happy. I don't believe I'd ever been so hot before.
The stimulation and energy was so intense that I thought I'd pass out from excitement. I rode the waves of my orgasms higher and higher and higher. I'd never experienced so many types of orgasms; they were so awesome they amazed me. Unlike any I'd ever experienced before, they came in so many variations increasing in frequency and intensity as the night rolled on.
Feeling the different and diverse energies of the four penises that freely flowed in and out of me was extremely stimulating and erotic. I connected with something deep and ancient within me. I thought
erotic, filial or agape, are all rooted in our sexual-aggressive generator. It
is the timeless spaceless center of the evolving vortex of life. The energy that
ties everything together and gives us meaning and value. Where does love come
from? This is shaped, in the family from the time we are born (and even before
by our genetics and womb environment), until we leave home. This influence
continues all of our lives. As we develop, we transfer love to others whom we
allow to preform "family functions." We then recapture our early
feelings, in the form of fantasies (most often unconscious), and continue love
with "confused" sexual potential expression, which is shaped now, by
the culture and society we grow up in. Follow the rules and you will be
accepted, if you don't you will be scorned. So how we feel about love and
express it depends on our families, culture and society. Although most ignore or
deny, it's sexual origin. During this process, our identity boundaries become
confused and it is difficult to know what is inside our minds and outside in
society. This keeps us under the control of the outside civilization. The guide
lines for sexual aggressive expression is determined by our society; which in
turn is shaped by our religious and legal systems at any given time. Romantic
love sets the format "Romantic love" becomes the natural, standard
that demonstrates to all what love is. When we are in love we are healthy,
happy, generous, giving selfless to our loved one and sexual relations become
sanctioned. It is here that we see life demonstrating what love can be with
every one all the time. How is it that romantic love goes away? What keeps us
from feeling this way all the time witheveryone? (Agape).
How can there be one path when there are so many different people , life-styles and cultures? What about all the prior and other civilizations, billions of people? The one path refers to each individual path. There is only one you, with one face exactly like yours, you have one physical life although we are all connected by DNA as one to a common biological, past. We continue as one cosmic life here and the here after when we rejoin the universal, evolutionary flow.
Love is the human energy that keeps us on the path
5 BEAM US UP, SCOTTY by Janet Kira Lessin
"You donít believe in war, but whatís that gun youíre totiní?" Itís damned near impossible not to get political these days and park your ass on one side of the fence or other. What an incredible time for self-reflection and discovery of who and what you really are, deep down, on a core-soul-essence level. Perhaps thatís the true reason behind war as the ultimate test of self.
These past few weeks Iíve tried to put myself in everyoneís shoes in this, the greatest of all psycho-dramas. I desire to move into witness, free of judgment, to identify with everyoneís pain and perspective, even if just for the moment, in order to reach a state of unconditional love and complete empathy for all my brothers. From a God-Mind perspective, thereís a reason for everything and allís perfect just as it is. And, it couldnít happen any other way.
Of course, I imagine, each person thinks they are doing whatís right, whatís best for themselves, their families, their country. Iím certain Bush, Bin-Laden, Blair and Hussein have each rationalized and justified their actions and intentions so clearly in their minds that they feel good about themselves and donít lose much sleep. There probably is some divine reason for all of this, that I judge as insanity. Iím just not seeing it. After all, we all have a need to survive. Our reptilian brain part of us does exist and serves a purpose. Itís probably the main reason behind humanityís survival as a species. In addition, everyone has a sense of "morality" and itís essential to feel good about oneself in order that we donít cut our own throats.
Iíve had all types of extremely interesting conversations about this war and its ramifications. Iíve had conversations on both sides of the continuum. Iíve had friends who come up and talk to me about all the conspiracy theories, the Illuminati and the Annunaki. I even heard that George Bush and the Queen Mother are members of a shape-shifting, inter-dimensional species of Reptilians, some of which live under the Earth, who are in allegiance with the extra-terrestrial Grays who grave our skies and abduct us. And on the other side Iíve talked to those who feel the war is the karma of those people and we just need to accept it. Some believe that we need to rid the planet of "evil," and that the war will last only a few days. Weíll be the heros as we free those folks so they wonít starve anymore, and so on, and so forth. Yup, Iíve heard it all.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. But....
When I look deep inside, weigh and measure what each person says, feel what they feel and that dark, heavy cloud clears and all thatís left is me, Iím left with something very basic and core. I simply hate killing.
To me war is just so, so.. ..uncivilized! I mean, here we are after all these thousands of years of existence--all these years of wars, killing, rape, murder, death--all the pain and hardship that comes from such high drama--and when it comes right down to it, havenít we learned? I mean, donít we get it? Here we are reaching for the stars, with the height of technology, science, art and spiritual expression and we still canít move beyond swinging in the trees and simply BE civilized?
Weíve just had about fifty years of incredible progress and relative peace in a world where the population has topped six billion! Our population has doubled in my short lifetime alone and here we are, or I should say were until yesterday, living in relative peace, on the verge of solving just about everything!
And we let one crazy fellow, the village idiot, ruin that? I mean, arenít there really other options? Couldnít we sit down and have a good cuppa tea and discuss this before we blow up so many nice people and pretty things? I mean, think about it.
Recently Iíve been toying with idea of what it would be like if the Federation came down with their Mothership and said, Janet, youíre now king of the world. I mean, stranger things have happened, right? After all, Moses parted the Red Sea, Jesus fed a crowd of 500 with one fish and a loaf of bread, Ezekial went to heaven in a fiery chariot, etc. etc. So why not a Mothership coming down and appointing me Ruler of the World?
As silly as it may seem, letís just go with this, for arguments sake, ok?. I mean, why not? Before I used to think thatís impossible, Iím not qualified, but now since this administration I think, sure, I could do it. Iím just as good as the next guy, especially Dubya. In fact, Iíd be a better leader because 1) I think Iím a bit smarter, 2) Iím a woman, so Iíd probably have more compassion than George, 3) I have a big heart and 4) Iím definitely more awake and conscious, closer to enlightenment than GW.
And, think of it, any enlightened, good-hearted soul could really do this world leadership stuff. Theyíd simply surround themselves with experts to help them with decisions. Piece of cake. Iím just volunteering to do this Ruler stuff for a while here, in this scenario, just till we get our acts back together, ok? Iíll just do this for letís say, the next 500 years. After that, someone else has to rule. 500 years you say? Oh, I didnít tell you that Iíd release the technology that will permit us to live to be 500,000 years old, if we so chose. After all, I want us to become a wise race and I figure the one sure way we can become wise is if we live longer. Anyone anyone who lives to a ripe old age of 500,000 HAS to wise up. So you see, 500 years is a relatively short time.
So hereís what Iíd do to solve all the problems of the world. Like I said, I donít have to be the smartest person in the world, Iíd simply surround myself with the smartest, brightest people (and beings) in the universe. Remember, in this scenario, the Mothership just came down and weíre in the Federation, so now weíd have all the smartest beings in the galaxy, not just we mere humans. We can solve any problem imaginable.
Iíd open up all the secret files that the gov has regarding hidden issues like Roswell, The Philadelphia Experiment, underground facilities and free, clean energy sources. Iíd allow all the life-improving technologies to be given to we, the people. With freedom of information to have access to what we already know, (especially access to the already invented but subverted information on free energy), weíd have clean sources of transportation and food production. I heard that we already have Star-Trekian transporters, so we wouldnít need cars or planes anymore. There would be plenty for all. That would solve about 90% of the worldís problems, right there.
Next, Iíd distribute the wealth. Thereís no need for the elite to control all the money in the world when thereís plenty for all.
Iíd educate people about population control. If someone really wants to breed themselves like rabbits, thereís plenty of room for expansion as Iíd open up terraforming on the other planets in our solar system. Iíd encourage folks to settle strange new frontiers, just like our pioneer forefathers before us.
Oh dream on, prom princess.
Reality is weíre here and now. Bombs burst in the Middle East. Innocent women and children die before their time. Soldiers leave behind families. All, young and old, suffer and cry. Some things never change.
As a result of lifeís uncertainty, Sasha and I become more appreciative of every moment we have. We live each day as if itís the first and last day of our lives. With the world rushing by, we recognize the brevity of our twinkle in time. Our dance is so precious, when I think of it, it takes my breath away and brings a tear to my eyes. We are blessed each morning we wake in each othersí arms, our dear kitty friend nestled against us. The dark surrenders to a kaleidoscope of colors. Exotic birds send melodic challenges, create a chorus of heavenly song with their feathered brethren deep in tropical jungles. Itís good to be alive.

Communication is so intricately woven into our conditioning that when we change our communications we free ourselves of dysfunctional conditioned responses. This allows us to open to our authentic selves and brings us into a positive energy flow. The NVC tools are effective in any situation whether personal or professional.

12 SUMERIAN STUDIES: Tutorial Study with Sasha
I've been studying the works of Zecharia Sitchin. Sitchin archeologically documents settlement of Earth by miners from Niburu, the 10th planet in our solar system. He provides evidence, written in stone and clay, that settlers from a long-orbiting planet (now acknowledged as orbiting toward us again) settled Earth 445,000 years ago and, 300.000 years ago, genetically altered a local primate to serve them. Sitchin's information will totally change our world's paradigm. The evidence is undeniable, concrete and overwhelming. And I've been reading Neal Freer on the implications for human consciousness of the Stichin Thesis. Freer feels, and I agree, Sitchin should receive a Nobel for the most important contribution to our collective awareness since Darwin.
Sitchin meticulously translates Sumerian accounts of Niburans' genetic manipulation of Homo Erectus to create human goldminers and servants. In Sumer after the universal deluge, Niburans taught our ancestors elements of Niburan civilization-astronomy, math, agriculture, herding, writing, massive architecture, geological information about planets and moons--to better serve their masters. Earthlings in most areas settled by Niburans were conditioned to slavishly obey their Niburan lords; excess humans were banished to hinterlands. Niburans involved us as pawns in their perpetual wars with each other-including thermonuclear massacres of us at Sodom and Sinai.
Niburan evidence includes stone-carved star maps that accurately describe and map the orbits of outer planets (Neptune, Uranus, Pluto) invisible to naked eyes on Earth. Niburan maps gave precise landing directions through our solar system. Sumerians, trained by Niburans, accurately predicted Niburu's 3,600-year return. Niburans used rock moving technology vastly better than ours today to built massive navigational landmarks (the Giza pyramids, monuments on our moon, Mars and Mars', Phoebos). Sumerian scientific writings keep becoming confirmed as our science catches up with theirs. Our best museums have Sumerian carvings of rocketships and depictions of Niburans manipulating our double helix DNA to create the first fertile servant. The servant's intelligence was peer to his creators' from the getgo.
With Sitchin's Sumerian/Niburan evidence we can now fully free ourselves to create a new paradigm, a paradigm free from the"godspell".
"Godspell" is Freer's word for the yearning of humans abandoned by the Niburans (who phased of Earth around 1250 BC) to return and order us around more. Our yearning for such "divine" direction mutated into religions which mandated murder of millions for their particular gods=Niburans. The Niburans were, by and large, obsessed with genealogy, male superiority. Many Niburan lords were petty, murderous slavers, generally disrespectful of consciousness (See Innana's_Story) And genetically we're half Niburan.
Ah, but the other half, the Homo Erectus, the already evolving hominid the Niburans altered to be their servant: Homo Erectus, in tune with this planet, more cooperative and sexier too has much to contribute once we break the godspell of Niburu.
If you'd like to participate in a free experimental email study (where I ask questions and respond to your answers) of the Sitchin and Freer materials, drop me an email at

We get to know each other intimately. Learning to center ourselves, we recognize, accept, coordinate and synergize our own varied inner voices that react to relationships and love. Practicing with each other, we learn how to convert our interactions from sour to sweet, sharing vulnerabilities. We see how aspects of other people that sour us do so because they resonate our own underdeveloped voices. As we accept these voices in us, we simultaneously enjoy their appearance in others. Accepting our varied inner selves helps us celebrate diversity in others and builds cohesiveness among participant .

TANTRA RITUAL Thursday, August 31 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Enjoy a fun evening of All-Chakra Tantra, Dr. Sasha and Janet Lessinís system of relating to lovers. In Tantra Ceremony (Puja) rites, we send, receive and blend with seven partners. As we rotate among partners, we exchange energy from our seven energy centers--chakras (members of a couple can, alternatively, do all the rites with each other).
The rite we do with each successive partner flows from a syllable of the Bija Mantra, where each syllable awakens a different chakra. One partner, one chakra: security, sensuality, power, love communication, insight and spirituality awaken. Then we return to our initial partner for the entire, kundalini-charged Mantra, expand your consciousness to one shared with your partner, with the group.

16 TANTRACONNECTION.COM - More Loving: A Synergistic Networking Site for Dating, Mating and Co-Creating
I'm thrilled to announce that my new web site, tantraconnection.com is going to be up and running in the next two weeks. I created this site in response to the many pleas I've received from School of Tantra students who wanted me to find dates and mates for them. Not only was I being asked to be a matchmaker, I also had to keep track dozens of stats on these people; location, height, hair color, etc. It became quite apparent that in order for me to keep the facts straight and be the ultimate matchmaker, I'd need either a super-huge memory or an incredible database. I knew my memory wasn't going to work, so I began searching for the ultimate web guru and the money to finance it. The more I looked into it, the more I realized It was also pretty obvious that the existing dating sites out there weren't going to work, because they didn't take all the relationship structures into play and if they did, they were too pornographic. No, I had to start from scratch in order to take everyone into consideration; monogamous, polyamorous, playcouples, heterosexual, bisexual, homosexual, etc. Besides, there were also those who just wanted to be friends or those who wanted someone to go to a seminar with. It's been a long, rocky road but after one false start where the web guru absconded with my money and didn't deliver, I think we've arrived.
Expected launch is April 1st, 2003. You may check www.tantraconnection.com before that as it may be up. Please, if you feel so moved, fill out a profile. Support us. Make yourself known. At the very least, become a friend to someone. I welcome your feedback as I imagine the site may have some bugs at first. I desire to improve it in order to best serve you. This site, ultimately, is for you. My global vision is that we find each other, synergize, connect, help each other heal, promote love and wellness, create happiness and wholeness.
Besides the dating aspect of our site, you may advertise your products and services on our site. I'm also looking for quality articles to feature. I'd love to hear about your life. Write up your experiences and share your spiritual path. The fees we charge are minimal and anything in excess will be put right back into the project. We envision a networked system of trained facilitators and seminars, workshops and annual conferences held around the world. TantraConnection.com is part of a global web ring of sites supporting one another in the path to planetary consciousness. United we'll create a world where peace is the norm and war is a myths of the past. We see the golden age, it's easy to envision. Together we do it, bring heaven to Earth.

19 CHILDREN OF THE MATRIX - DAVID ICKE - Coming to Maui?
fascinated with the works of David Icke, who is perhaps the craziest speaker on
the planet. His web site begins with "MAD, BAD, OR JUST PREPARED TO GO
WHERE OTHERS FEAR TO TREAD? The most controversial author
and speaker in the world. ĎStrange times are these in which we live when old and young are taught in falsehoods school.
And the one man that dares to tell the truth is called at once a lunatic and foolí -- Plato. And... ĎToday's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut, that held its ground.í"
Iím interested in creating a seminar with him. Iíve contacted his group and theyíre willing to work with us. The conference could be held in Maui or on the mainland. Iím open.
Davidís incredibly dynamic, with tons of charisma. Iím definitely not the type to follow a guru, however, Sasha and I saw him last September in the SF area and heís a fascinating speaker, interesting, full of powerful, controversial information which reveals "the truth" behind the secret government and who actually rules the planet. While you may or may not agree with him, while his theories seem to be really "out there", heís definitely onto something thatíll hold your attention and make you think. Sasha and I watched his presentation for over eight hours over two days, and he was so compelling, neither of us experienced even one moment of boredom.
Anyone interested in helping create this event please firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call at 808-244-4103.
20 WORLD CONSCIOUSNESS CONFERENCE - August 2003
Iím interested in creating an all-chakra, mind, body, spirit and sex conference to be held in August of 2003.
Well, I had a dream that was quite profound which stated emphatically that we need to create as many positive, loving, sex-magick rituals we possibly can on August 12, 2003. Weíll just call it World Orgasm Day.
Well, it has to do with the 20 year biorhythm of the planet and the dark timeline which began in 1923 when Allister Crowley did his black sex magick thingy in the Great Pyramid with the modern incarnation of the Goddess Inanna.
Well that ties in with the time experiments of the Philadelphia Experiment on August 12, 1943 which opened a time portal which is looping and then the scientists figured out what to do and we able to pull the sailors that fell overboard in 1943 through the time portal on August 12, 1983 with the Montauk Project. And, ya know, Nostradamus says Armageddon begins the end of August.
Sure, but anyway, the time portal opens again August 12, 2003 and if we can get 10% of us focused, doing positive sex magick rituals, we can do a 100th Monkey-type shift and go back to the nice timeline, the original God one of peace and love. I know. It sounds kinda like a combination of Star Wars, the Matrix and Lord of the Rings, but hey, sometimes these dreams are true, right?
For some reason, Iíve been going crazy trying to figure this all out and mustíve read a hundred books on this stuff and itís just a theory. I even reserved the domain worldconsciousnessconference.com so I could create a web site. On a practical level, sure, itís rather crazy. But my Higher Self keeps leading me back to this so, who am I to question her? Sheís always been wiser than me. Letís just call it a hunch. And if Iím wrong, big deal. Just call me crazy. Iíve been called worse before! However, the worst thing that can happen to you is weíll all have a great time. Thatís not so bad. So, anyone interested in helping out?
