Monsanto Chair- Is it a heavy ceramic thing with a lever? Even with all
membrane technology, it will still be * * * *.
The Nobel Prize is being obscured as the most prestigious award in its
field. Can you see the Nobel Prize for the Most Engineered Stable Coffee
Origins, or Roundup fertilizer, "When Performance Counts."
When Elvis and the Beatles were "It," I preferred the crunch of coffee beans
in the mouth to the vacuum-brewed coffee I brewed for my folks. (Wonder why
they both liked cream- from a cream separator- and sugar?)
My record collection included "Jailhouse Rock" on a 78, "the Nut-Cracker"
suite on some 45 rpm EP's, Khachaturian's piano concerto and several
different performances of Grofe's Grand Canyon Suite on 33-1/3 rpm LP's. Not
PC. No prize, but I like it.
Cheers, Mabuhay, Iechyd da -RayO, aka Opa!
