One of my fans












tells me that I remind him
of the Czech folk-tale character,
Děd Vševěd, the tattered
and Wise Old Man of the Woods.

I am very flattered.

Vševěd means Allknowing.

Děd Vševěd appeared mean on the surface, but his inside was kind.
He offered help on variety of subjects to a commoner or the king.
But he only provided answers if the question rhymed.
According to his mother he was a baby in the morning, man at noon and wise old man in the evening.

So from now on, Anthony my man,
expect my next question around ten.
