Hi Tanya,

I'm sure it wasn't your intention.

No Tanya, I owe you the apology. I should haverealized that you were
just continuing to jest until after I sent out my post. I would have
been just some more fun. Its a terrible thing appallexia --highly
contagious. My fault entirely for being so vulnerable to such
dispeptia of the mind. We did learn something though, didn't we? Can
you imagine: we could have wrote a dissertation on bugaboos before we
even discovered whether they exist or not? I was thinking that, with
a name like that, they must be aboringinees, or some such (not
really). In any event I then found this:

"A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds". --Ralph
Waldo Emerson.

So? Where are the hobgoblin's?


PS: Your English, by the way, is excelent. Mine has been
deteriorating for cuite some time. I've been down here so long, I
start droping double leters like: 'll'. I start writing 'f' in place
of 'ph', and put 'c' in place of 't' in sufixes like 'tion'. And,
the few times I notice, I don't care: I convince myself that I'm just
developing a new speling norm for English. And I'm still upset with
the internet that you have to have English keyboards. I really miss
those upside-down exclamacion points.
