I'm thinking 35-40 will take her... Too early to tell though.. From what I understand, she sails as good or better than she looks. She certainly ruled Hawaii in the 60's.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken, opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
