I don't recall hearing the term except as part of infectious mononucleosis - a viral (Epstein-Barr Virus normally) disease most common in adolescents and young adults, characterised by swollen glands (hence it is aka Glandular Fever) and generally feeling pretty crappy. The mononucleosis part arises from the presence of a high number of mononuclear cells (aka lymphocytes) in the blood.

Literally then, I assume nucleosis is a high number of nuclei (with or without surrounding cells) in the blood, but there are much better terms for that.

Might you mean nucleolus, the small sack that holds the RNA in the nucleus of a cell?

PikaPooch, what is the derivation of your screen name ? My mother-in-law formerly had a dog we dubbed "Pica" because of its tendency to eat non-food items. Welcome, by the way.

No way in the world. No one in this house uses pokemon (),and in his (?) profile, there is mention of that game.

As Dorothy Parker might have said, the emotional range of the emoticons is from A to B. That is why I never use them.

Jim will tell you-- when i think he has been out of line--i've sent him a PM-- but as of late--he has been very well behaved-- I don't think he needs to hide behind a "second name".

check his profile, and read his posts-- he is slowly but surely getting better and better-- and he did mention that he has just completed 8th grade-- so he is 13-- or perhaps 14-- I'm pretty impressed with him..
Nah, he is not perfect -- but which of us is? some of us have been know to reduce threads to food-- not words.
and some there are/have been some pretty boring (my perspective)threads on cricket.. our pooch- who i suspect to be very young will either shape up--or get bored..

Its sometimes disturbing to have excited, loud, talkative kids in the library.. but do we want to ban kids from the library and keep it for the exclusive of scholars? Who will be our future scholars if we don't let kids get into the library and learn to love books?

we've had our Tom Swifts-- and our shaggy dogs, and more than our fair share of double entendres, puns and literal interpretations. we are not all serious here.. lets not be to hard on young pups..
