Come on, I've got my cravat ironed and can almost taste the scent of sherry on the wind.

When and where?

It seems odd to me that someone who lives in a gated community needs to plea to meet people outside. Isn't it a consequence of living in such a place that you are not likely to meet people outside. Instead of inviting people to meet outside, why not leave the gates open and invite them in, or is there something sinister going on in these gated communities. I understand that security is the main reason for thiese places which seem to be cropping up all over the country, but there seems to be a missing link.

you may have missed the main thread on this issue, but the there was inconclusive evidence that those people living within the confines of a gate, are sad indivuals that engage in activities such as match-stick modeling or collecting antique abacusses (spelling?). It seemes like a good idea to keep us away from normal people, hence the gated-only invite.

I have some very interesting heat-retention modeling techniques to discuss with someone !
