Vaya con Dios! Que se vaya bien!

Good quote and good points LD... Sadly, the younger generation doesn't seem to understand it.

Old NFO,- no, the younger generation don't understand because they've been *taught* not to understand it.

However what is "right" and what is "wrong" can be interpreted in many different ways.
LD thanks for the quote!
