Mike, I know you're Southern, so this explanation isn't for you but for
the rest of 'em -- A ? at the end the sentence means, right? or OK? or
the French use of "non?" It is NOT intended as a query.
The "resource" available to all subscribers is the archive? So, if
someone has more space than I, a Multiple guess quiz/contest could be
pieced together from there?
Over the years a number of things have been mentioned that vary from
Canada to the UK to Brazil to Oz and picking those out should be possible.
I've heard tell that some enterprising folks are storing those ...
Just a thought, possibly not worth the paper it's not printed on ...
