I don't really know but I have heard that my whole life.

Ah, yet another good guess!
It's a no go on that front, though...
One down, three to go!

Well, I know, at least I think I know, that I haven't made that particular comment.
Although it's somewhat true because if a question is removed, so go all of the answers and points associated with that question.
Considering the effort that can go into an answer, that wouldn't be very fair.
The question itself may be in what might be considered bad taste, but the answer may be a good counter.
A lesson learned.
Kinda like stubbing your toe... that's a bummer.... the answer?... Wear shoes, or watch where you're going.
In other words, catalysts aren't always good, but the results of that stimulus can be very good.

I'm thinking that maybe Triss may have said it at some point but... hmmmm.... I think I'll go with Suzuki.
(Although I doubt he was the first to use it)

Shot in the dark... Suzuki.

Tris I also appreciate your intelligence.
This Q&A has bright people. Karven shares my desire to learn about Science. I feel at home here.

K, just joking around a bit-- I like it that you use your brain, that Phil writes intelligent Q's and uses hers, too.

What do mean dibble?... I love riddles and puzzles!!
You can collect data in your head, but riddles and puzzles teach you how to use it.

On the walk.... been awhile.

I gotta run too.... need some milk etc.

Yes, good to hear about there being a piano in the home where your Mom resides, had meant to comment about that. I'd love to play for her, wish I could. I have thought of going to a home nearby, but life is busy now. Yet, this is when they need some holiday cheer.



It's dark outside for mid afternoon. I need to get outside for a walk though. When's the last time you got out for a walk? ...

Ah, I need to carry on with errands, but it was fun to be non-sensical with these silly questions I posted, even though the I.Q. of you & Phil is WAY above this dribble I put up, lol!

I hope your day goes well. Let's talk in chat some time again, but not today. Bye for now, K.

Mornin' Yourself Triss!

Glad the trip went well.
No piano at the home huh?... That does stink.
The one where my Mom is at has one that everyone has access to, so sometimes I'll come in and there'll be a group of residents playing and singing songs from the "Old Days".
They also have volunteers that come in and do sing-alongs.
What with the Holidays, that piano's gonna get a workout over the next few weeks.

Ah, and things went well with bringing my Mom down to the Hamiltion area --- my brother & his family & my Mom are on their way to Florida --- they'll arrive any time today. My brother & his wife's family put on a surprise birthday party for my sister-in-law: her 2nd surprise b-day party in a week's time, haha!! Fun to get in on that.

Then I visited my sister-in-law's Mom in the nursing home she just moved into --- she was at her daughter's b-day party & was surprised to see me visit her the next day. It was a great visit --- I thought of you visiting your Mom & all. They didn't have a piano there or I would have played a few Christmas tunes, stink*! ...I did do some knitting beside her, though, and since she's a knitter, she loved that.

And I told her about re-teaching her grandson/my nephew how to knit --- at his urging me to! (She'd taught him to knit initially.) And he knit on her needles that were back home, with her yarn, which she also was tickled pink about.

Mornin', K!!

Hmm... not sure I should comment on your choice just yet, BUT yes, I say "bummer" too, lol.

(...And are you sure you didn't say that?...)
