Well people I got promoted to Senior Member. 2 days before my birthday.
This month will be unforgettable for me.
Thanks you all for the patience you had with me.

And now my target will be The Member Of The Month reward.

For now boozing time has started.

Mogwai (cantonese) meaning "monster", "evil spirit", "devil" or "demon"?

You see me like that expat? Gentleness is my middle name.

Robert,

looking closer, you and expat could be right. But there is always the possibility that Mogwai had intercourse with a Madagascar owl. icon_confused.gif

happy birthday Peter !
I got confused by the promotion date, so ... better earlier than later

here is my toast icon_biggrin.gif
Code:

#! /opt/oorexx/bin/rexx

parse arg coun

do   i = coun to 1 by -1
   if i > 2   then do
      bottles1 = i "bottles"
      bottles2 = i-1 "bottles"
   end
   else ,
   if i > 1   then do
      bottles1 = i "bottles"
      bottles2 = i-1 "bottle"
   end
   else do
      bottles1 = i "bottle"
      bottles2 = "no more bottles"
   end

   say bottles1 "of beer on the wall," bottles1 "of beer"
   say "take one down, pass it around," bottles2 "of beer on the wall."
   say "cheers for Peter cheers for Peter"
   say
end

say "no more bottles of beer on the wall, no more bottles of beer"
say "let's go to the store and buy some more"
say "cheers for Peter cheers for Peter"
exit



save it somewhere with a significant name ( I called it BBOTTLES )
and type bbottles <how many You want>

quick and dirty on a linux like
for TSO substitute the shebang line with /* rexx */

Peter, does this sound familiar .............................

A lady goes to the bar on a cruise ship and orders a Scotch with two drops of water.
As the bartender gives her the drink she says, " I'm on this cruise to celebrate my birthday, and it's today."
The bartender says, " Well, since it's your birthday, I'll buy you a drink. In fact, this one is on me."

As the woman finishes her drink, the woman to her right says, " I would like to buy you a drink, too."
The old woman says, " Thank you... Bartender, I want a Scotch with two drops of water."
" Coming up," says the bartender.

As she finishes that drink, the man to her left says, " I would like to buy you one, too."
The old woman says, " Thank you. Bartender, I want another Scotch with two drops of water."
" Coming right up," the bartender says. As he gives her the drink, he says, " Ma'am, I'm dying of curiosity. Why the Scotch with only two drops of water?"

The old woman replies, " Sonny, when you're my age, you've learned how to hold your liquor. Holding your water, however, is a whole different ballgame".
