As a structural engineer, I worked with architects. On one job I worked with a guy who usually worked on restoring religious buildings (the buildings are religious?). My wife wanted to see Savanna so we stayed over while visiting relatives in SC. Surprise, we bumped into the guy while getting breakfast next morning, he and his boss were designing the restoration of the old synagogue there.

Assalamu Alaikum (My favorite moderately recent movie is "The Kingdom of Heaven)

I have just got in from my weekly visit to the pub , where , eavesdropping as usual, I overheard the following coversation:
A-" Hmm! On the whole, I think I prefer the Steve Miller Band to Ed Milliband."
B-"Abracadabra!"
A-"Yes, Red Ed isn't much of a magician, given that he needs a miracle, is he?"

Not wishing to show that I'd been eavesdropping, I went a peculiar shade of purply red trying to withhold my laughter. Usually in the pub I go to, what you hear is boring drivel about jobs or football, easy to ignore....
