    Thank you for that, mona, at 52 I attest you've nailed it. And I thank you, Danik, for laughing at my poultry attempts at being witty. Oh you beauty, Lokasenna, always arriving just in time like Han Solo, with the apposite touche'.

    Cheddar, an Evangelist is a traveling speaker, a Pastor is much like a Vicar as he is over a church. My current role is to have house services for those who cannot make it to church. And we have always agreed to disagree, that is respect for each other, friendship without fighting over differences that make no difference to friends!

    Neptune: Gaseous planet near Uranus which may or may not have an ocean for Poseidon in his Roman Disguise to rule over

    Another forum I belong to just taunted me over my illness so the word is:

    Insensitivity:
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    Fragrance: Aristocratic for "smell." Fragrance is in the nose of the inhaler, as I maintain that skunks give off a fragrance that one never could mistake for anything else!

    Odoriferous: Whereas "Fragrance" is usually reserved for things that smell good, this word is a definite indication that something stinks

    Saturday Night Fever: Movie where John Travolta did that stupid dance that people sometimes still imitate today and look just as ridiculous! 2) A burning thirst for beer associated with the weekend sports on TV, the local NASCAR race, "professional wrestling" and other Redneck events

    Brouhaha: Often pronounced Bru-ha-ha; the alternate pronouncement: Bro-uh-aha! leads to the definitive definition of when a Bro comes to the realization that his fellow Bro has been caught in an unseemly light.

    Circumference: Distance around a circle or cylinder that is difficult to determine because it uses the number "π” which irrationally refuses to ever repeat a digit or come to an end

    My apologies, I had the pi symbol in there but the post won't accept it. Ah, well
