Not all chocolate is made alike.

You're right.  But every authentic chocolate is still better than vanilla in disguise.  Tongue

I'd still rather have false vanilla than false chocolate.

Oh my! How can such things be posted on this board? And by someone in authority no less? Look, I'm in favor of interracial relationships just as much as the next person, but that doesn't mean I want to see graphic, detailed pictures of it in the most intimate moments! Look at how they are all over each other and wrapped around and... my goodness...

Liza, look away.  Wink

Really, guys? You're all over an ice cream cone but no one seized this low-hanging fruit?:

I thought of Thaddeus because of mor-tadella, which I know Cousin Mor fancies.

What is "cousin" in Romanian?

Văr. But that wouldn't work as a middle name. Maybe 'Vărutzu' ("little cousin").  Tongue  

There's nothing "little" about me, Văr!

I'm not even kidding, when I wrote that to Romaios, I had two things in mind: my age (I think I'm older) and my weight (I always presume I'm heavier than the person I'm speaking to, unless proven otherwise...plus, we were just talking about sandwich meat!).  But if you found all those other meanings there, and added your own, then you're my new best friend!  I pray God for you to live forever.    laugh

I literally snickered when I read it and I was so sure someone would make a joke... Even an obvious "That's what she said!" or something. But, nothing. I was pretty shocked when the conversation just kept on going.

I always took Deut. 25:11-12 as a warning against things of that nature. There should be no seizing of that stuff in public at any time by anyone ever, even if there seems like a good reason or it's an accident.

When we studied canon law, I remember learning the principle that if there was a law against something, it was probably a big enough problem before the promulgation of the law.  Makes you wonder...

Well, I don't know for certain, but I do know that Wikipedia hosts the picture and identifies it as a column type snowflake, which it describes this way: "A class of snowflakes that is shaped like a six sided column".  When I first saw it I couldn't believe that it was one, but apparently it's so.

Lactobactilus dwell in vaginas, Propionibacterium - all over the skin, probably in belly buttons too. Both are used in dairies. What's the difference where they come from?

Or do you think cheese grows on trees?

That's probably what it is. There is a lake in the middle of the town but I'm not exactly sure it is there yet. I've been away for too many years and I've never seen an aerial photograph of it.
