***A toast to boat drinks***

Do not go softly into that cold good - night

Rage! Rage! against the dying of the light

And most important: To thine own self be true

Now comes a day of great question where men and women ask of themselves, who am I?

his future is our present and tomorrow's future is their history and man shall be judged upon action and not word. There shall come a time in each man's life where the final act is death

this above all, to thine own self be true

To Donna

And I'll have you know dear lady that the Scottish highlands were defended by an unlikely group of men who favored scotch and the celtic musings of the bagpipe to the sounds they would die by and spill their own life's blood to protect

The poem (by Dylan Thomas, a Welshman, by the bye) runs:

"Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light..."

Also, ye weren't implying that "to thine own self be true" had aught to do with "The Scottish Play", did ye, laddie? 'Tis from Hamlet and is part of Polonius' advice to young Laertes...

Now the description of the Highlanders, that I could aye agree wi', as I can trace my father's name all the way back to The Bruce himself...

Twenty degress and the hockey games on.

Nobody cares; they are way too far gone,

screamin' "Boat drinks," somethin' to keep them all warm.

This morning I shot six holes in my freezer.

I think I got cabin fever.

Somebody sound the alarm.

I'd like to go where the pace or life's slow.

Could you beam me somewhere, Mister Scott?

Any old place here on Earth or in space.

You pick the century and I'll pick the spot.
