Well, I was a bit confused by the posts from Thomas but I've got it
straight now. It was mainly the "Richard" that threw me but getting the
second post first didn't help.
Thomas, there are two other frequent contributors to the list, Tom Gray
and Tom K. Grab claim to your intial in a hurry, more might be coming.
Also, there are two Ricks that make a lot of noise on the list, Rick
Seddon and me, Rick Parker. Rick S. is a Richard posing as a Rick while
I am the true thing, a Rickard (a weird name for a non-Scandinavian.)
Both Rick and I get beat up a lot and when we get tired of it we beat up
on each other. I usually (???) let Rick have the last word. He may
think that I'm deferring to his rank, age, brillance and good looks but
actually it is because he is two time zones to the west.
I wouldn't mind reading some further posts from you guys on the types of
culture. It isn't too far off subject and the list hasn't been terribly
Rick, I loved your "trans. Fagle" comment. As for the casinos, I really
hate the casino ads but I want to get down to Foxwoods some dreary
winter day. They are supposed to have put up a good woodlands culture
Thanks for the compliment Thomas. I find the biographical reading of
TWL most interesting and rewarding but it is a sure winner for having to
post defenses. And thanks Rick for plugging my web site.
