I believe the term, in the vernacular, is "true dat". My girlfriend and
I are both fortunate in that we have very similar interests in
computers, electronics, photography and cooking, and even where we don't
particularly share an interest we at least participate in what the other
is doing. I have a rather better appreciation of Scottish Country
Dancing, and Carolyne's taste in cars now runs almost exclusively to
elderly Citroens, Reliant Scimitars, and her 2002 Polo. It helps that
we're both geeks and thus almost pathologically interested in *everything*.

Well now, property is replaceable, mostly. I would urge SWMBO to
protect her life with the nearest suitably heavy bit of property
(Citroen Special Tool FBH-14, maybe).
