Hell. Hell to pay. Hell to pay in the person of the guilty party.

But "hell to pay" suggest that you inflict hell towards those that you pay, not that you should pay hell, the location, or am I missing something? :shock:

Oh, wait, it was short for "hell of a lot of money" perhaps? If so, yes, by all means, do go ahead and pay! :D

If grrr grrrr, goes true to form, his response will probably be along the lines of : " Vick is such a benefactory beneficiary, he'll probably return the payment with a bonus."
As a professional, you, are your one and only asset. Without integrity you are worthless, but with it, you are priceless.

Congrats on the new job, piggy.

As for NiaD, I am up for it any time, and am only slightly disappointed that it didn't fall around my birthday this year. :wink:

Was hoping for it in October, but very much understand it needs to fit in with your life. It is a gift whenever it comes.

Looking forward to it whenever.

So, I flung in my hat, and now I see the date is the day after Burns Night. I hope there's a Scottish angle, because mine is likely to be "crowd sourced" with a variety of Alba dialects from midnight to 3am. A Doric chapter would be a challenge :-)

Answering that question would be in direct conflict with our official policy on the matter.
