[wiping tears from eyes] Whew. That was great. Thanks, Max.

Yes, that's great! Thank you, my sweet Max!
You may imperative me all over the place...

Surely should be millstone, though, not milestone?
#37111 - 07/31/01 10:14 AM Re: For Beatles fans
Loc: this too shall pass
milestone, as on a Gantt chart, is probably carefully chosen.

As a veteran Windows ME Crashee...IMAGINE THAT! Thanks, Max!

I've heard some of those before, and loved them!
I always thought of "milestone" in that song as being some intermediate deadline set by the employer of the unfortunate composer?

LOL, I just finish reformating my computer and that's the first post i've read on this forum. :)

Hi and welcome to the board! I trust your name has no ulterior significance...

> I trust your name has no ulterior significance...
If so 'Levis' might have been more fitting...
Otherwise let me give my whole-hearted welcome
Loud, contentious arguments ... ahh, the hot chilli of life
(aside: why are there so many bleedin' spellings of 'chili', 'chile'!)
(another aside: 'chilly' and 'chilli' are almost homophone-antonyms )

This puts me in mind of a song by Moxy Fruvous, a Canadian band Hi Bean! with the same sort of gift for wordplay as their countrymen, the Barenaked Ladies. In a MF song called "The Kids' Song", they intone:
My name is Gabby and I just got here from Chile,
I like Canada except that it is chilly,
I met Premier Bob Ray, and he ain't no Pinochet,
My mother makes a spicy bowl of chili!
Cheap rhymes. Always cracks me up.

I don't think I have posted this one before, apologies if I have.
When they catch a chinchilla in Chile
They shave off its beard wile-nile
With a sharp razor blade
Just to say that they've made
A Chilean chinchilla's chin chile

Then I'm sure you've heard of the Canadian band called ...
The Winona Ryders
