last year, Paul attempted to summit with his wife, Fiona. Fiona made the summit, but Paul had problems with his oxygen and had to turn back only 100 meters from the summit. this year, it is his turn!

Re: summit :P
Knowing that I am taking my (cyber)-life in my hands, I would venture the opinion that there are plenty of contexts where "peoples" and "monies" are legitimate usages. "Harass" and "harassment" with the accent on the first syllable are the traditional pronunciations. There are plenty of Brits who still won' accept the accent on the second syllable, but the battle is already over in the USA, meno male.......

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
