I canter, I canter, I canter, which makes me post... post... post...

Interesting! Canter comes from Canterbury, shortening of the Canterbury gallop, which is the pace at which pilgrims traveled there. I suppose you could go faster, it's your Chaucer.

well, I hope this isn't too much of a spoiler for anyone. . .

reeces, the post requirements are: for newbie, 25; for journeyman, 50; for member, 100; for enthusiast, 200, and for addict, 400. We have yet to discover the next level's title, which, I would have to make a guess, is at 800 posts.

>>oh look I'm a newbie!!!!!!!!

Bit of a stretch, there wasn't it?
Never mind--many of us have been guilty of padding!
Keep 'em coming.

Unfortunately I am not related to the candy family. I used to work with someone whose last name was Brach. We'd often commiserate about how we'd not be here if only our names were on the proper family trees. When people ask me how to spell my name (how difficult is Reese?), I'll often say "R E E S E, like the candy, no relation." Guess it's good for a chuckle or two.

Happy weekend, All!

reese and brach on the same job?? How sweet!

One year in my dormitory at college, there were two girls
who shared a room, and their last names were Box and Spring.

Yet again those of us not in the USA are starting to feel left out (well I am, anyway). What are you talking about? I've never heard of a reeses or brach chocolate bar (?).

Reese's Pieces (an M&M-like candy) claim to fame is Product Placement in the ET movie.

Gosh, that was the position I played when I was a kid!

Sorry--guess this was kind of a payback for Marathon, which to me is a gas station. (ok, petrol station!) :-)
Reese's also makes the famous peanut butter cups. Brach is
a long-established candy company. One of my favorites is
their peppermint stars--they look as though a candy cane has been sliced into bite-sized pieces, individually wrapped.
