Look what is at http://www.users.bigpond.com/burnside/:

From Bill Hunt:
I have spent many very pleasant hours with your back issues, may there be many, many more. The mention of "flowing arrows" reminded me of a genealogy book I saw many years ago that said the name "Flower" was of occupational derivation, being a synonym for "arrow maker". It mentioned that archers had a grim joke of sending their foes "bouquets" referring to the brightly colored fletching resembling a colorful blossom.

Very interesting!--(words of the site mgr.)

A-HA! Dr. Bill ... caught you sneaking off to other sites ... you can't go being brilliant elsewhere and not expect the great Pooh-Bah Jackie not find you out.

Congratulations! Now how about shining that luminous intellect a bit more on us poor benighted souls!

After all ... you were "ours" first, weren't you?
