Thanks for posting that Ted.

If you understand the Butterfly effect then you know that for every action there is a reaction.

I don't know if you ran across this in the Med when you were there but many old men would wave in a friendly way and shout, "Hi Joe." If they spoke English and you talked to them they remembered what our fathers did for them in WWII. They were grateful.
