Erc, Jerry C, ProfC and many others,


First, I hope you all have a very enjoyable Thanksgiving celebration...........................



And to get you in the right mood, a short example of the type of dry humour I relish.


From yesterday's Financial Times:


"Advocates of a bigger EU budget have adapted their arguments to the circumstances. Jose Manuel Barroso, European Commission president, claims the budget is no longer a butter mountain, or wine lake, but a 'catylyst for growth.'


To which one sceptical diplomat replied: ' Only if you're a cow'."


Enjoy yourselves,
