Besides, he's better already!
Oh, I had never realized quite HOW serious DF's illness was. Glad to hear the euro is not going to collapse quite yet. Although it doesn't look good.

Well, drat! There go my plans for world domination. I thought for sure that, as a woman, I'd get a place in Obama's administration as Queen of the entire World!

Bummer, what can we do to spice things up for you?
Already have. Besides, it's Friday, payday and I'm off all next week for Thanksgiving.

The most under-reported of 2011: a general antivirus that works without side effects on almost all viruses. It works by blocking viral-specific DNA enzymes. If it is 100% effective, they may not be able to evolve around it...but I wouldn't bet on that yet.

What else? I'm particularly impressed with Space X's growing ability to get into space - something the US should be proud of!

Faux news has a serious case of sour grapes as does Mitt Romney given that he's explaining that he lost the election, not because he's an old white guy whose time is past and who is not in touch with what people want but that it's because Obama bribed the voters with gifts.
I, personally, do NOT believe that the freedom to have control over MY body is a gift.
Yeah, he has definitely gone all "sour grapes" on us. I was hoping that after that gracious concession speech he made that he could help the healing process, but I guess not. Oh well. Just makes me happier that he wasn't elected.

Bizackly. I've found Spanish and French very useful.

Oh, and the longtime sobriquet "God's Waiting Room" no longer applies.

Trust me on this.

No, that's a corruption of "Jinni" - plural of "Jinn", an Islamic separate creation, like angels.
Only not.

I bring nothing that would even be considered close to scintillating, let alone intellectual exchanges, but I am typically kind and caring. Hope those attributes are enough to allow me unfettered and unchallenged access to this thread.
:-)

P.S. Susan can vouch for my character.

De rien.
I cannot warrant anyone else's behaviour (trolls abound), but if Suze vouches for you, you will not lack for allies.

Is the antivirus in human trials yet. It sounds quite promising.

As for space travel. I think that until humanity is really crowded and has completely polluted this planet, it won't be happening. I really hope I'm wrong.

I have heard Florida described as in the south but not of the south. Sounds like that remains true.
