I've been away for a while. I spent an hour or so catching up on about 600+ posts here. Very entertaining reading, but often very tiring.
The predominant posters of late could be designated "The 'Plute - Aok - Physalia' Show". Or more simply, "The PAP Show". Which leads me to the dictionary....
Main Entry: pap
Etymology: Middle English
-- something lacking solid value or substance
I enjoy many things -- great music, competitive sports, substantive discussions, and yes, even some 'pap' on TV like 'Big Love' or 'Boston Legal'. I guess it's not too surprising that, as a guilty pleasure, I also enjoy the 'PAP' here.
BTW, I considered Ponte as one of the "P's", but his posts are either too acerbic or too sage to get the 'pap' moniker. And as for Persh -- well, he's been strangely quiescent of late.....
Yours is a completely non-sequitur response. Surely you know the difference between PAP as an abbreviation for a word (papillomavirus) and the ACTUAL word pap. Or do pharmacists lack a mastery of vocabulary?
What exactly are you trying to say about yeast -- or are you trying to be funny? Do you think Plute, Aok and Physalia are 'rising' stars?
Regardless, a poor response by any measure.
I DVR 5 shows -- Big Love, Boston Legal, Sopranos, Alias and House. Between those, and the various live sports, it's about all the time I can spare for TV.
I'm quite sure Entourage, Deadwood, Desp. Housewives, Pepper Dennis, The 'L' Word, and lots of others would be interesting, too, but I'm afraid I'd get hooked, and I just don't have the time.
BTW - I only DVR shows presented in HD -- once you've seen it, you just don't want to watch anything else. NBA Playoffs on TNT-HD -- superb!!
Ponte der Teufel
Mr. Pierson, CEO of the Pierson Bank in Amsterdam wouldn't lie and he didn't post it on GOOG, GOOG did not even exist FCOL. Mr. Pierson introduced me to his banker friend, CEO of La Jolla's bank or S&L, and that is how I came to buy my lot in SD for $10K.
Mr. Pierson passed away a long time ago and I was just reporting what he told me like a parrot fer sherr. What's your problem, gringo?
You won't find who wrote the Bill of Rights on GOOG either, gringo.
Utterly Ponte! Kiki
