LOL Starrsville, I can't accept any credits for inventing any terms, only for butchering the language!

Someone did in the last week or so. Using as the example, posters who "correct" other posters about places they've never been to before.

Or, am I losing my ever-lovin'-mind? Could be!

Oh, I post so much that I am the only nickname on your mind Starrsville, when in SF, let me know, I'll buy you a drink, you really need one!

Last week I was in Palm Springs, by the way.

I'll take you up on that offer. Can't wait to get back to SF. And, I get to see LoveItaly on the next trip "left" too. How lucky am I? Two Fodorites on 1 trip!

Hi starrsville, I am waiting!

And Faina, welcome home!!! You will have to tell us about your 30 wedding anniversary trip to Palm Springs.

Starrsville, remember the old saying about the only way to keep your sanity is to go crazy, LOL. Sometimes it seems to be true.

Except for a well spun tale of adventure, neither is better, IMO.

To quote that old English guy, Bill,

Or In-Seine as a Parisian on a pont might say.

Oh, that was bad. Very bad. (If I do say so myself).

That is a hoot, now I can tease my French snobby wife of a friend and tell her all the French are in-Seine.
