Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other; body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!
BAJR and Past Horizons never make it for awards... but then

a) nobody puts them forward..
b) nobody would dare let them win
c) we don't need any awards.. the smile of a BAJRite is enough Wink

With peace and consolation hath dismist, And calm of mind all passion spent...
