Have you ever been sailing?

You're coordinating the raising of four sets of sails, struggling to keep the bow straight, setting up shivs, all while plowing straight into the head wind, trying to keep the boat upright...

When suddenly, you hit a pocket or a current or something, and are tilted at just the right angle, going in just the right direction. And it's smooth sailing.

That's how it's been, these last few weeks.

Of course -- until some fool gets in your way, or messes up your current!
