Hi Sandra I speak a Slavic language as my mother tongue and we have a similar formal and informal you, (the plural and singular). This made it a whole lot easier to learn Spanish and French as far as understanding grammar. I think most European languages are structured in this way. I learnt Spanish ...

Well, that's because you don't know my nom de plume :o

But seriously, I know two laureates...really I do. They won the medicine prize jointly for research they did back in the decades.

Hi Linda No, the prize doesn't have to correspond to work done in the same year. I think the only rule around timing is you have to be alive to win. The rules depend somewhat on the field but you can imagine that contributions to science, peace and medicine may not become apparent for many years. Yo...

Hiya Now in my collection. :) A friend made a copy (sirens in the background) of her CD and sent it to me. Devendra (he) is young, about 24, and sounds like no-one else but reminds me sometimes of Ben Harper and someone else I can't place. He has had a pretty interesting life. A lyric is going round...

Has anyone heard this singer/muso? I just heard a few songs, and I am hooked. Worth a listen.

Dear Lizzytysh, If you can get a copy it is well worth listening to, very moving. It is read by Maya which is incredible anyway, but the Marsalis music treatment just gets all the juice out of it I think. here is a blurb Among the sterling guest artists joining Marsalis and DJ Premier is America's p...

This is actually a poem by Maya Angelou, but I first heard it performed as a song with Buckshot LeFonque (B Marsalis et al) so I always think of it as a song. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings The free bird leaps on the back of the wind and floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wings in...

Hi Tom I wasn't trying to make you feel worse. I guess reading Byrons post made me think a lot about what I meant by "fear". My impression was that the general tone was a bit more trashy, with a lot less ad hominem action than we saw some months ago. Now it just seems that you talk to those you "kno...

re Camella

Byron, I thought she wasn't entitled to be....ah entitled? Well, not at the PoW. I heard she was gonna be the Duches of Cornwall or the Princess Consort.

Hi Tom, thanks for your post. I have always loved this board, way before i ever started posting. lately I have been wondering what the hell is going on here. I can't say I know who is the person (or persons) who are assuming alter egos, although sometimes it is obvious, and I think the general trend...

Maybe you could hook up the puter to the toilet paper? Cheaper and also you get two uses out of it.
