Well I'm a newbie now, feeling decidedly superior to those poor little hatchlings.

Walter for the last few minutes I've been trying to find the origin of the Manchester United red devils logo. Can't find it. BUT it's not 3 stars, its the sails of a boat!

Blatham thanks for clearing that up. Is it calves as in leg or calves as in the Queen's prized herd of Aberdeen Angus cattle that excite you? I could eat one right now.

fishin...what does a moderator do? Are you there in the background, quietly meditating on moderating or is moderation in all things necessarily an active role?

You are right, Steve. But from the distance and after having some tea ... it looks like the stars on the brandy bottles.

Well umm.. I'm not really sure what I do. I'm just me for the most part! Smile On occassion, when I see someone ask questions about technical aspects of the Forums I try to point them towards an answer. Otherwise, I suppose if things got really rough and tumble I could call a "time-out" (I got a little silver whistle that goes with the job!) and ask the parties at loggerheads to cool their jets and/or tone down the fisticuffs. Should we get someone who insists on throwing tantrums and making life miserable for everyone else I can remove posts but that is really a very last resort.

If "Moderator" = "Sheriff" then you could think of me as the Andy Griffith type. Well golly...

Hmm.. Sorry. No killing. Barney ran off with the only bullet we had when he skipped town with that floozie. He'd been carrying that one bullet around in his shirt pocket for almost 30 years....

Phoenix - Ixnay on the "007" thing. It's a SECRET! Shhhh! Very Happy

Blatham, brilliant article by Maureen Dowd, thanks. I watched the State opening of Parliament, switching between BBC and CNN. BBC had live uninterrupted and entirely deferential coverage of the Queen's speech. But in the middle of it, (missing the boring stuff about govt. policy) CNN cut to their local reporter, Nic Robinson..."Nic what can you tell us about homosexual rape allegations at the Palace?". (!)

ebeth..nice to hear from you. No I don't want to chew on the Queen's leg, I'll leave that to the corgis and various courtiers.

However if they looked as good as Lola's I might change my mind on that.

Since Steve doesn't seem to be 'online' (here) momentarily:
re. 'Anglaises': there are at least two more:
Gautam is living in London, McTag is British as well.

And you all have a surprisingly good command of our language, as well; except, of course, for your orthographic faults. Repeat after me:

c-e-n-t-e-r

c-o-l-o-r

h-u-m-o-r
