The British Crown is a useless anachronism.

Now you want to play like you were just discussing the thread topic.
I can put up with it, but "turn-about is fair play"
and your posting history shows that your skin is a lot more delicate than mine.



I think its kinda fun.

@OmSigDAVID,
Sure, Bubba . . . if it makes you feel important to think so. You're trotting that "getting angry" BS again--you have so little imagination.

Don't get angry now, it's not good for your blood pressure.

@glitterbag,
It was re toffee and taffy maybe being the same - and I said, nope.

You can tell because on top of my response there are small letters saying, I think, re glitterbag. If you click on that, you can see what I was answering.

Thanks Merry, I've no idea what rock candy is, that was posted by someone else, and OmDavid mistakenly attributed it to me.

Oh sorry OB, Omsigdavid misquoted me about toffee and taffy. That comment was actually written by Izzy. My understanding of toffee and taffy is that they are very very different. I don't think I've ever seen rock candy. The closest I've come to that is the lyrics of a Burl Ives song called "big Rock Candy Mountain"
I love toffee, hate taffy, and rock candy is an unknown substance to me.

I agree, I remember that version now. Was it part of the soundtrack of "oh brother where art thou"?

I seldom buy film DVD's but I have a copy of "oh brother" and a much earlier Coen Bros. film "blood Simple"

Looking over PSH filmography, he's been in many movies we've seen....one of the most intense was "doubt" with Meryl Streep, and his performance as Truman Capote was wonderful.

If indeed, his death was due to an overdose, drugs have snuffed out another bright light.
