So, here's a Random Post....

Since it's fall, and I live in Michigan...there's tons of apples.

What is your favorite apple?

I like Pink Lady. 

I once had an apple called Kiku....I thought it was great, but, I can't find them anymore.


Empire Apples are my favourites

I might be wrong, but I believe that he is not enriching this forum at his previous pace precisely because he IS doing his (new) job.

Don't you mean, "No man can have two masters simultaneously"?

We may have owned him before, but obviously the pay and benefits package wasn't good enough.  This is NOT the place to discuss employer master-provided health care.

I have found that the Golden Delicious apples one buys in the grocery store, taste markedly differently from the apples you pick right from the tree.

Last year I went to the orchard and I usually steer clear of golden and red delicious, however, I had parked the car right under one, and reached out and plucked a beautiful greenish yellow apple...and it was soooooo good!  I picked a whole bushel of them.

However, I don't care how fresh they are, the ones in the store, are not the same.  Short shelf life?  Perhaps the sugars change the texture and the sweetness really quickly.

I just know that if you put them side by side and did a taste test, you would swear they were not the same apple.

Hmmm..........Guess you'd better that up with him and his new employer.  Perhaps this will go down in history as "The Battle for the Trisagion".

But also remember, that a man who sells himself to one party would have no qualms selling himself to another, even if not "released" by the former.  That's the nature of the business, I think. ;D

A final thought on the matter--maybe your memory ain't what it used to be.  ;)

Random fact of the day: Colloquial Finnish pretty much lacks letter d. That is, if we aren't talking about loanwords. It's kind of weird to realize that desite it being established part of written language nobody really uses it in day-to-day life.
