"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

A good friend of mine and I have begun a serious talk about volunteering to become the "Army of Liechtenstein" if they will pay for the beer and the fire-crackers. That way we could 'patrol the border' (another way of saying watch the ski-bunnies) and talk to the Swiss guys that get lost in the Alps. Since Liechtenstein does not have an army at all, we figure that a couple of guys would be enough, and the travel opportunities would be awesome.

I wonder if they would let people volunteer for a two week duty....in the summer.

Oh, and Nanc, the Swiss have one of the most dedicated military organizations on the planet. Every citizen is required to serve for a time and every citizen is expected to keep their firearm in good working order, and to practice using it after they leave active service. As a result, they little problem with armed robbery. Those in the Swiss guard that desire to can then apply to serve in the Swiss contingent in the Vatican Guard. That by itself is a very prestigious position, and is one of the most high-tech "body-guards" anywhere. That is one reason that those guys getting lost is such an unusual occurance.

I watched a documentary on the Swiss Guard a few years back. They went through the history of the Swiss guard and the Vatican.

The Swiss Guard is a very prestigious position.

This just goes to show you that an armed citizenry is a great deterent of crime...*Kelly pulls out her 2nd amendment (bullet) earrings and polishes them.*

Nanc, tweezing is such a mundane task anyway...I must go ...I think I have a shelf to dust.
