  1. FYI, on your page challenging quotation attributions (or, rather, the lack of them), there is one typo –“not” for “none” (perhaps mid-keystroke the mind edited “not one” into “none” (which equality should make your “mention” into “mentions”! :o) ).

    Here’s the sentence :

    > In fact, not [ mention [ children at all.

    (-;

    ps: Came to your page re the supposed Mark Twain quote, “… to fool than … fooled”.
    (And then got to wondering why we’re so *ad hominen* about it, about validating it with some famous person’s origination!?)

  2. Hi Ian!

    Just wanted to say hi and let you know that we are pointing to your ‘In search of the blue agave’ website in our updated website (see http://www.desmondji.com/useful-links.php). Hopefully that’s cool with you.

    You may want to have a look at what we’ve been doing in India with blue agave spirits since we launched products about a year ago in Goa (especially the 100% agave). Maybe you’ll decide it’s worth writing about on your comprehensive site, or on the FB page.

    Cheers!
