Added comments via Haloscan... at least it doesn't seem to be slowing down the loading of the page. Do I even know what Trackback is for...? No. Remember I was born in the middle of the last century. We didn't have no stinkin' trackback then. What wuz the highest tech gizmo in the house back then... I think it was a toss-up between the washing-machine and the seltzer-maker I bought for the family - which turned out some pretty crappy seltzer.
My family had stopped having seltzer delivered (to save money) and so, desperate for my favorite drink I bought a carbon gas cartridge gizmo that made flat-tasting seltzer. The seltzer bottles were of heavy glass, with great metal nozzles that got nice and chilly. Usually the glass was untinted - but every once in a while you'd get a blue-tinted bottle. That was a bonanza for me. Same stuff inside - but it was such a beautiful azure color that it would make me think of blue waters - and I could get transported by this color to some pirate laden waters...
