Topic: Library Tradition (10 msgs / 258 lines)
1) From: Dan Kellgren
Well - Scott delivered!  I received the now infamous 6 book library
collection.  I am so honored to have these for a time!  I can't wait to dig
into their wealth of knowledge.
I will also fully enjoy the pound of Ethiopia Harar Horse that Scott so
graciously included with the package.  Thanks to Scott.
I will be sure to pass this tradition along when I'm done.  Man - I've got a
lot of reading to do!

4) From: Dan Kellgren
Well - I have found myself in quite a quandary!
Please accept my apologies on my misuse of the adjective "infamous".  In my
34 years, it had never occurred to me that "infamous" had a negative
connotation.  I have used that word many times to describe things in the
"positive", not realizing that it was in the negative.
I assumed (without ever giving it much thought) that it had meant a "better
than famous" of sorts.  In fact, I took a quick (unscientific) office poll
here and found that 6 out of the 10 people that I asked thought of it in th=
e
positive.  Clearly though - it's not!  The infamous "Billy-the-Kid" YES.
The infamous people at Sweet Maria's NO!  LOL
Anyway, thank you Ray for pointing that out.  My command of the English
language has a few unfortunate flaws.  Eye sea that I ain't got it awl
figgured out yet.  ;-)
And yes Brett - legendary would be much more appropriate.

UNCLE!
It's a terrible thing when an alleged mind gets stuck in the barnacles of
the Past.
I used to be a little too proud of my speeling and granmar. Until Previously
Correct gets replaced by Popular Usage.
Then I'm on a banana peel with the absence of short term memory. But there
is hope- in 25 years, it will no longer be short term! I'm sure.
I apologize.
Cheers -RayO, aka Opa!
Sneezing because of the Sackcloth and Ashes I'm always wearing!
