Sorry I missed this, but I still have a house full of company and they will be here all weekend. But I am glad to see it back again.

Thanks!

Kay! Thanks for checking in with us. It was fun, as you'll see when you have time to page back through the thread.

Hope the company are much fun, and you aren't running yourself ragged being the perfect hostess.

BTW -- that's some cute baby in your avatar!

Thanks, Nancy. He's 4 weeks old today. I get to keep him all day tomorrow. Hope I survive that and the company. I'm getting pretty worn out and need a good night's sleep. Why am I still up at 12:45AM?

Glad y'all had fun. Hope to make it next week.

G - In Fifth Business by Robertson Davies, lead female character Liselotte Vitzliputzli suffers from acromegaly,
one of the syndromes, including gigantism, which can be caused by tumors of the pituitary gland, producing this substance.

I guess SPOILERS should now be used.

Though not the one on prime time...

B - "The Moment of truth has finally come" is part of the patter in one of my favorite radio summer songs of all time, from 1966,
"Cool Jerk". What is the name of the group which performed "Cool Jerk"?

(Group name is related to something in the Starter).

G - The driving bass line is played by one of those 88-key pianos.
(Gimme a little bass, with those 88's..)

How many black keys, how many white keys?
Beach Boys

there are 88 - more white than black - lets say 50/38

I used to know this

What was MsKing gonna eat?

I'm gonna go eat Triscuits that have been re-frozen about 12 times now. I'll bet they're crispy and delicious.
I was Jonesing for some carbs. Do Frosted Flakes straight from the box count?

(How do I get the quote thingy to work?? I hit the button in the Post a reply window, but that doesn't do it right.)
I LOVE Frosted Flakes.

I have not eaten them in years.

They are carbs for sure.
