I've got a Unix-type body: old, creaky, but still works well -- and both the Mac types and the Windows types derive from it.

I see. Well, I seem to be more toward the Mac-type then...but I am using Windows here. Can that create a conflict in interest? Should a Mac-type get involved with a Windows type? Is it safe to throw Macs out of Windows?

IF you have one body type, but try to live as though you have the other, like an artist in an advertising agency, you find your soul ossifies.

I'll never trust anyone ever again. I won't believe anything every again. Except what the President says, because you can't be President if you don't tell the truth. George Washington and Abe Lincold both showed that. And the Pope. You gotta belief what the Pope says because he's infallible. And maybe Amos. But that's it, except for my wife and my mother and any other mother, because if you can't believe some mother who can you believe? And politicians. You gotta believe politicians, too. And anyone who plays a banjo because a banjo is a sign of veracity.

A beastly habit, that, mon vieux. I am practicing my French. I have been invited to move to the wilds of Normandy and live in a chateau. I am seriously thinking about it. I think MOAB has your number, Rapaire. 666 to the 6th. 8.72661E+16. Or, to put it another way, 87,266,061,345,623,600.

My father-in-law was invited to Normandy back in 1944, but I don't think he lived in a chateau.

This place has 300 acres and many wonders. It is such a dramatic shift I have serious misgivings, but we will still have broadband. It is a puzzle and a dilemma.    Back to the Norman Conquest!

But you'd be living among THE FRENCH! And Our Leader has shown them up for what they are! You'd be eating nothing but snails and fren...freedom...fries! And you can't drink the water so you'd be drinking wine all the time, even bathing in it! And they got these funny toilets there that are part toilet and part drinking fountain!

I know these things because not only have I experienced them personally but I listen to Our Leader.

I dunno, man. I think this bogey-man approach to international relations is something a Legionaire might have dreamed up. I've known lots of French and they have all struck me as lively folks with several brain cells working. Unlike your furless Liter.

Check it out.

Too small? 300 acres? You could swing a cat there while the kids rode horseback and the visitors played golf.

It's bigger than what you have now, and mine, and Rapaire's, and Bunn's, and Khandu's, all rolled into one!

Yes, but if you're going to go to the trouble to move there, it has to be really big! 300 acres is adequate, but the house isn't olde enough or big enough.

Gee...you must have a very big spirit attached to that mid-size frame to feel cramped.   In addition to that manse, which is full of very large rooms which haven't even been used yet, there are five separate hosues and multiple apartments over the considerable stables. I think I could find elbow room all right. As for age, it is the largest freehold property in France, which means (to me, anyway) it has been an intact parcel for some centuries.

True, the buuildings have been modernized for heat, AC, and hot water, PBX services and will have broadband internet through a T1 or perhaps a dual sat system.

On verra, tout ca; the negotiations are afoot.

WHooo hooo! Finally! That goofy MOAB ghost (two occurances of the thread line) is FINALLY gone! For a while I thought everyone saw it, then realized it was probably in my browser. But now I see it was some combination of Mudcat and my browser. I accidentally hit "detrace" instead of the little "d" a few minutes ago, and when I retraced the thread it came back only once. I never could figure out what the problem was there. It didn't mean twice as much MOAB to love, just a strange duplicate line.

LOL! Charley passing through like that made me feel like I was curled up in one corner of a rundown broke-backed opium den in a Shanghai slum.

But I know better than that. The secret towering grace, the impeccable rhythms, the flashes of divine wit, harmony and inspired phrase -- these are the gems of the MOAB, which only her children can know.   And if I do end up being a lazy genius in a fine chateau in Normandy, I can assure you I will not forget Mom. She can have visiting rights.

                               ODE TO THE MOAB UPON ITS 2000TH POST

When MOAB reached its thousandth post
I wrote a pome, said 'twas the most
That any thread had ever had
It warn't too shabby, not too bad.

It now has that thousand times two.
'Cause some folks don't have shit to do
'Cept shoot the breeze and waste their times
With foolishness and goofy rhymes.

Yes, MOAB it continues on.
The Goddammed thing just won't be gone!
A dream from which we cannot wake,
A never-ending stomachache.

It now looks like it may be true
That this thread never will be through!
So, what the hell? Don't buck the tide.
Just grab yer nuts* and enjoy the ride!

I would write a poem about Mom's 250,000th post, but we're not there yet. I should be more precise and say that I'll publish the poem I'm already writing.

It's an epic. There is a hero, a ruggedly handsome librarian who can whip out an analytic or a 008 field as quickly and as well as he can his bejeweled sword. There's a heroine, a beautiful and sexy, yet virtuous, woman who falls into the clutches of an evil monster named "fred." There's a king and a sailor and a potter and an evil wretch who creates a zombie in the tower of the long-abandoned castle and three witches and a guy who provides comic relief because his kilt is too full and too short for the windy conditions on board the ship, where he is especially embarassed when he has to climb the ratlines to rig sail. And there's horses and Gabby Hayes, who rescues John Wayne from the Picts, who bought him from Rory the Leper...Lepra...Irish Elf. James Bond figures into it too, as does Paris Hilton and Greta Garbo and Thucydides. And a giant squid. And a duckdog.

Betcha can't wait!

Those large muscles gleaming, with those sensitive eyes begging for understanding...irresistible combination, in their way.


Sometimes it seems we are all eternal bond-slaves to the dictates of protoplasm. Not irreversibly so, but it seems to be the dominant condition. Protoplasm is fine for what it does, but methinks there are broader ranges to explore.

At sixteen thousand six-nine-seven letters
I'd like to say the MOAB still grows better.
I'd like to sing the praises of her station --
The charm, the grace, the canny peroration.
That wiser grow, and wiser growing still,
Surmount all hurdles of the world and will.

I'd like to hymn her beauty and her grace --
The light she brings to every reader's face.
How fine, to praise the rhyhm and the temper
That makes each Son of Mom swear, "Semper!
Semper Fi! We pledge our souls to you!"
I'd like to write such paeans -- as would you!

But sadly, none of it is true.
