I have no problem with this concept at all. I have seen so much of the
mentality however that I did mis-interpret your intentions. For that, I

I love to have to have fun in the lessons I give. But it is fun in the
context of
hard work.

I had a broken tooth once, that requied a root canal. When I left the
office the Doctor said, "Thanks for coming, I enjoyed it." I looked at
him and indicated that I thought he might be one brick short of a full
load, (in humurous matter). He responded by informing me that he
always feels good when he knows that the work he has done has
helped a patient. Talk about a matter of perspective.

(Please don't ask what that has to do with the present discussion.
Somewhere, in the depths of my mind it made sense.)
