    You know, Ragu, I really want to do something with that thread title. But VB 2.0 prevents it.

    Glad you turned the French maid thing into a good laugh earlier today.

    I kind of figured people would start to read it and think it's just another one of my posts. It's got the length, and the coherence and grammar are not too far off.
