Thanks for sharing. May 17, 2003

I am quite used to the second site. The only downside is that I got inundated by so many emails that I had to unsubscribe.



Otherwise, fine. Meanwhile, enjoy it while you can.

Hallo Paul

By the way, how did you come across this posting? It's from 200 ... 3. That seems like a hundred years ago.

Regards,
Anu

I wanted to share the word of the day site, so conducted a search and your thread came up. Whenever I want to make a contribution, first I see if there is already a thread going.

Today's Word of the Day is "valetudinarian".

I've just seen that you can even have the Word of the Day tweeted to you.
