By the way, I see now that www.behindthename.com has been ... in recent years as far back as August 2000.

I looked up Dena - Possibly means "dale" or "valley" in a Native American language.

"Valley" reminds me of "cleavage" and... No, I won't take that thought any further (until she visits me in England). Emotion: wink

We are not going down that path again!

} About the subject line: I greatly dislike it when I write a } meaningful subject line and then see it used for weeks above } discussions that have nothing to do with it. My answer to } the problem is to use nonsense subject lines to begin with. ...
Yeah, but how hard would't've been to have stuck an "etc." after the nonsense word (in the spirit of encouraging conformity)?

R. J. Valentine BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oops! Sorry.
I've still got two friends who are unselfconsciously called . It doesn't seem to present a problem.

My uncle named his two sons Peter and . I seem to be the only one who noticed.

More serious was when an acquaintance of my father, a Mr , named his newborn Harry. He, not Harry, considered it highly amusing.

Yeah, bring back those good old nuclear attack drills.

"Air raid drills."

Did we think it'd be Russian airplanes delivering nuclear bombs or that it'd more likely be missiles equipped with nuclear warheads dropping in our yards?
Air raid drills are what they had in London a decade earlier.
PS Kerry will be the hands-down winner in New ... will be the next President. Happy days are here again.

PS Sure, Kerry will probably win in New Hampshire, despite the obvious moral superiority of Joe Lieberman. The rest of your crystal ball's prediction is pure fantasy. You may as well ask questions of one of those 8-ball things.

We'll see in November who, you or me, is right. After the resignation of the arms inspector, along with what he had to say about Bush's foolish proclaimed justification for attacking Iraq, I'm even more certain Bush is going down. Going down big time. Happy days will soon be here again.
What an ass Bush made of himself, reaffirming his idiocy, ... address. Hard for me to decide whether to laugh or

cry as I watched his performance. The one who made an ass of himself was Ted Kennedy, but it played well in Kennedy-Kerry liberal-lefty Massachusetts, no doubt. As for Bush's performance, I applauded. Didn't you like the "permission slip" statement?

As much as I liked his 'dead or alive' statement. Your man is a cowboy. In the eyes of the world, he looks like the fool he is. Some wool appears to still be covering your eyes, however. I hope you'll see the light soon.
But enough U. S. politics. You need to be here, Charles, IMO, to get the full flavor.

No, you need to be in Europe. Only here will you get the larger picture. People are laughing at Bush and, as a result, Americans, if you people in the Midwest hadn't realized that by now. Thankfully, a large number of voters live on the one, or the other, coast. There are a few in-between who also recognize the urgency of ridding the world of Mr Bush's influence. He is a very dangerous man, as is any deluded evangelist who wields a large amount of power.

My mother knew a Pearl Button and my aunt's first names were Violet Ray (but that wouldn't have seemed so odd around 1915, I suppose.)

I am reading a book by a Harvard professor called Lynn Sharp Paine. I assume that her maiden name was Sharp and she just couldn't resist the combination. The acknowledgements reveal that her husband is called Tom.

Time once again, I guess, to bring up my grammar-school classmate Iva Payne.

I'm sure I've mentioned before that I used to work with a man called Robin Banks. Checking to see the last time I brought it up, I found lots of references to a female blues singer also called Robin Banks.

At least it's memorable.
