Thanks, Alan! The flood myths are interesting, aren't they? I knew about 
the Greek myth of Deucalion and the flood-story Uta-Napishti tells in 
the Epic of Gilgamesh; but I didn't realize, until I looked it up on 
Wikipedia, quite how many other cultures have flood-myths too.

Anyway, I'm glad you're enjoying these.

Best wishes,
