      Wow. I never heard anyone from Georgia use the word "plethora"
      until I read this post (Go Vols!) And I agree, I use this Yahoo
      group to harvest ideas. I really don't care who invented what.
      When bickering like this starts to sound like a Monty Python sktech,
      I quit reading and abondon the thread. BOKAKOB's given me a lot of
      good ideas, and I hope it continues.
