I'm actually worried about losing bellyfat and gaining muscle by then (2 weeks). I've hit a point in my workouts where I'm going through a lot of physique changes recently. I should mention that from the time I got the suit ordered in February, it's already much too loose.
Now I have to make myself another cuppa, I just screenguttered the one I'd just made.

Mmmm, Fox news light! but they are right there has not been a peace treaty signed, I can't remember the name but I read a novel where the north rebeled and joined the south forming a United Korean Republic ticked the Chinese off, which led to an invasion and all sorts happening (Japan glowing etc.)
They will probably send a couple of small gun boats for a show of force on some insignificant south Korean rock islands and when South Korea defend them, there will be some shots fired, maybe a boat will be hit ...
Probably very, in their way.
The trouble is most likely the new young dictator trying to consolidate his position before the old guard in the military take over and he gets retired to a small farm: about six foot long, by two wide.
Add in his inexperience and he may go farther than anyone sane and more mature would want to. Dangerous situation - I wouldn't want to live in North or South Korea, or Japan at the moment.

'Expert' on the wireless yesterday saying the power is currently with a childhood chum of his father who currently has his ear more than those at the top end of the military.
Also said they want international recognition as a military power and aid, neither of which they're likely to get but they've started making ever increasing statements and don't seem to be able to stop.

I can't believe I'm writing this after Vasudevan's post yesterday about using VB in a dot net program. Today, I finished a major conversion utility and an omission was picked up which needed an input form to collect some further information. I was toying with the idea of rearranging the main form to include a new textbox but what we needed was something that was prompted for at the time the database was on a one-way update. Well, if something didn't stir in my bonce which is exactly what the Microsoft.VisualBasic.Interaction.InputBox and some other methods couldn't solve for me. I included this in the application and darned if it didn't give me a get-out-of-jail card.
I drilled down into a number of classes in it and there's actually some useful stuff in there. It was quick and easy, dirty but usable, clunky but functional and for a one-off, it solved my problem. I won't use it all the time but bugger my old boots if Vasudevan doesn't need some more points. I spat at his suggestion yesterday (in good humour, of course) and dagnabbit if less than 24 hours later I'm licking up spit.
F*** me, if it ain't 'arf funny what goes around comes back to haunt yer.
Vasuvedan, thanks for the heads-up, belatedly and with much contrition. Humble Pie is seldom eaten but I've pigged-out on it today.
