*Ahead of the curve: The idiom is an abbreviation of the expression ahead of the power curve. The power curve is an aviation term, the mathematical interaction between drag and airspeed, or how the engine power of a given aircraft acts upon that aircraft’s airspeed. Pilots may talk about being ahead of the power curve or maintaining good speed and altitude or being behind the power curve in which case they lose speed and altitude. The idiom came into use in the 1920s, when more airplanes took to the skies and is sometimes incorrectly expressed as ahead of the curb – aka an eggcorn.

Staying active and busy is the highest priority for Alex. On the squash court, hockey rink or golf course; this is where you will find him when he isn't working, exploring local history, brewing ales, or attempting to art. "Reality leaves a lot to the imagination" ~ AE
