We are talking about about a personal trait that has been transmitted genetically from father to son. That's why we use the word inherited rather than received.

Hi Al,

Do you mean "since" or "sense"? The phrase "this makes since" doesn't make any sense ;-)!
Thanks,
Torsten

i Penelope,

For future information, 'alot' is not correct. this term is always two words: 'a lot'.
