Was that supposed to be a reference to me? I seem to be the youngest person on the board.

No, apples + oranges is the youngest person who has given their age; and, not exactly: it was a ref. to the phrase from the Directions thread.

I suspected that he might be of comparable or lower age than me, but I haven't seen him post his age. . .

Are you sure he's a he?


Whoa--edit alert--just went to see if he or she had put a name in the bio, and found 'this person no longer in our database'. So I guess you are the babe here, Jazzy!

What kind of drink is Moxie?

I'm a Brit currently living in the US and I've never heard of a drink called Moxie. I am guessing it's American but I've not seen it over here either.

Thanks for that. Very informative. I'll have to see if I can get some to try.

Welcome, Phil.

I never knew Moxie was a drink, either. Frankly, I thought it was some kind of Hebrew word for spunk!
It doesn't sound like I'd like it. Give us a report if
you try some?

Psst--I have a girlfriend in your city, and she's into
computers--even got a credit on a Mac flyer--if you're
a-lookin', send me a Private Message--she's single.

Jackie! I'm shocked - and from an old hand, too...

Well, if you can have a drink called Sweat, why not Spunk?

Jackie! I'm shocked

Ok, whoa, right now. First--I was blushing for my ignorance of the origin of the word moxie, and even more, later, when I realized I probably should have said I thought
it was a Yiddish word.

Secondly--I have just discovered, thanks to a special friend, that the word spunk has a completely different
interpretation in England, of which I was entirely unaware.
So I don't feel the need to be embarrassed on account of that.
