    That's my reaction to just thinking about her at all. Thinking about her singing will get you a whole page full of them.

    I'm thinking of her time - the 60's and 70's - not her performance skills or talent to be sure. :biggrin:

    Isn't there a law prohibiting mentioning those two things in a sentence with her as the subject?

    I believe that it's the equivalent of 'Humanitarianism' and 'Hitler'.

    I guess you get to keep the 2004 Guru ribbon indefinitely. A reminder of your former glory. :tongue:

    I feel you, Ivan, and I'm not even that old. But when I hear Nirvana on the radio, then realize their big album came out in '91, I think 'wow, that's about how old latter-era Led Zeppelin and Who were when I was a young kid growing up in the 80s. Then I realize in a couple of weeks I'll be closer to 30 than 20. Lord knows how I'll feel when I get to your age. I'll probably find a 19 year-old girlfriend and buy myself a Ferrari.

    Yeah, wow, could you imagine being as old as Ivan. geez. I'd probably get a 19 year old nurse and a Hoveround.

    You'll probably need a nurse long before that, and not for the reason you hope we'll believe. The hovering wheelchair might be pretty handy.

    Trivia problem: What is the difference between a fact and a factoid?
