    Newspaper piece

    There was also a piece in the Age Newspaper (Melbourne Australia)

    can be viewed at
    www.theage.com.au/news/national/index.html

    and just look down the page for the heading
    "Love that costs father an arm and a leg or two"

    Hmm, reminds me of a joke I heard from some female stand-up comic:

    My boyfriend and I went to the zoo, where we saw
    an alpha male gorilla being groomed and fussed over
    by his harem of females.

    "See?" said my boyfriend, "That's nature's way, the
    same way it's supposed to be with humans."

    So I took him to the black widow exhibit....
