    So long, it's been good to know ya

    So long, it's been good to know ya

    What a long time since I've been home

    And I've gotta be driftin' along

    I've sung this song, but I'll sing it again

    Of the people I've met and the places I've seen

    Some of the troubles that bothered my mind

    And a lot of good people that I've left behind, singing

    So long, it's been good to know ya

    So long, it's been good to know ya

    So long, it's been good to know ya

    What a long time since I've been home

    And I've gotta be driftin' along

    The sweethearts they sat in the dark and they sparked

    They hugged and they kissed in that dusty old dark

    They sighed and they cried and they hugged and they kissed

    But instead of marriage they talked like this: honey

    So long, it's been good to know ya

    So long, it's been good to know ya

    So long, it's been good to know ya

    What a long time since I've been home

    And I've gotta be driftin' along

    I went to your family and asked them for you

    They all said take her, oh take please do

    She can't cook or so and she won't't scrub your floor

    So I put on my coat, tip toed down the door, singing

    So long, it's been good to know ya

    So long, it's been good to know ya

    So long, it's been good to know ya

    What a long time since I've been home

    And I've gotta be driftin' along

    I walked down the street to the grocery store

    It was crowded with people both rich and both poor

    I asked the man how his butter was sold

    He says one pound of butter for two pounds of gold, I said

    So long, it's been good to know ya

    So long, it's been good to know ya

    So long, it's been good to know ya

    What a long time since I've been home

    And I've gotta be driftin' along

    My telephone rang and it jumped off the wall

    That was the preacher makin' his call

    He said, "we're waiting to tie the knot

    You're getting married believe it or not"

    The church was jammed and the church was packed

    The pews were crowded from the front to the back

    A thousand of friends waiting to kiss my new bride

    But I was so anxious I rushed her outside, told her

    So long, it's been good to know ya

    So long, it's been good to know ya

    So long, it's been good to know ya

    What a long time since I've been home

    And I've gotta be driftin' along

    April 19, 2018

  • This, from an article about great football flops, is a lovely account of the luther blissett thing in Italian.

    "Ninety-five league goals in just 246 appearances established Blissett as one of the most prolific strikers in Britain, thriving at Graham Taylor's no-nonsense Watford. Quite why Milan thought his robust talents would be similarly successful in Serie A remains one of football's enduring mysteries. He scored five goals in 30 games and, according to one Italian newspaper, was 'famous for missing open goals and for the inexorable precision with which he would find the goalpost'. His name lives on in Italy, however, but not for footballing reasons. 'Luther Blissett' has become a byword for anarchy. In 1997 four men went on trial in Rome for travelling on a train without tickets. When asked to identify themselves, all said they were Luther Blisset and argued that 'a collective identity does not need a ticket'. They explained that they chose Blissett because he was 'just a nice Afro-Caribbean guy who had problems with the Italian way of playing football.'"

    March 20, 2018

  • Minx alert!

    March 20, 2018

  • Etymology online:

    tit (n.2)

    1540s, a word used for any small animal or object (as in compound forms such as titmouse, tomtit, etc.); also used of small horses. Similar words in related senses are found in Scandinavian (Icelandic tittr, Norwegian tita "a little bird"), but the connection and origin are obscure; perhaps, as OED suggests, the word is merely suggestive of something small. Used figuratively of persons after 1734, but earlier for "a girl or young woman" (1590s), often in deprecatory sense of "a hussy, minx."

    March 20, 2018

  • It's a small, small world :-)

    March 20, 2018

  • Hence the origin of this word is small small.

    March 20, 2018

  • Etymology online has the following:

    small, active bird, early 14c., titmose, from tit (n.2), expressing something small, + Old English mase "titmouse," from Proto-Germanic *maison (source also of Dutch mees, German meise), from adj. *maisa- "little, tiny." Spelling influenced 16c. by unrelated mouse, "when mose had long been obsolete as an independent word" OED. The proper plural is titmouses.

These are essentially stocks that are undervalued and have strong fundamentals, thus presenting themselves as great investment options. Multibagger stock companies are strong on corporate governance and have businesses that are scalable within a short span of time.

    Description: A stock that doubles its price is called two-bagger while if the price grows 10-times, it would be called a 10-bagger. Thus, multibaggers are stocks whose prices have risen multiple times their initial investment values."

  • "French snowshoe brand Morpho attracted our attention with its Lumio glow-in-the-dark snowshoes, and it held it in place with an advertisement for four-season snowshoes that step lightly across moorlands in the warmer months.

    Bog-shoeing is a popular pastime in Estonia, a key market for Morpho's four-season Trimoor. The polypropylene copolymer moor/snowshoe has a light, flexible binding designed to assist you in gliding across wet, spongy bog as easily as you do flat snowfields."

  • Hi Bilby - Just spotted a question you posed in a comment back in 2009 (!) on my aviation list ("Let's go strap on the ole air'chine and bore holes in the sky!") to wit: "what is a 'rooster tail'?" If it still matters see image here...or, since I've added it to the list: rooster tail.

  • Bilby is, as usual, a lode of useful information. I once went skiing in Chamonix, where les Guides des Alpes are universally admired, but I failed to understand the sense of their characteristic cries.

    They're famed for feats of derring-do
    But guides of the Alps are scholars too.
    It's knowledge they seek
    When they call from a peak
    And plaintively ask, "Beaudelaire, he who?"

  • Bonsoir Monsieur Bilby,

    Where are you, actuellement?

    I am back in Paris, being forced to write about such big fat frauds as Charles "Mr Spleen" Baudelaire.

    But in two more weeks I shall be free, free as a bird!

    Now I need to go favourite the word "wentletrap".

    Adieu !

  • Bilby, I wish you a happy new year. I am grateful for the comments you have given me. I have been slow to respond mostly because I could not figure out how to do it. I have been looking for an ongoing thread I could reply to but I have failed to find it, so now I have visited your dashboard. This seems rather roundabout, like exiting the house and ringing the doorbell again before replying, but it is all I can manage for the moment.
