Julie Hi,

Your posting has taken me a few days to work out. Either 1) you
agree with Paul, but wish to say so very politely so to avoid my
wrath (or "virtual axe" <G>) or 2) you are pointing out the fact
that the American dictionary is different to the English
dictionary and you are merely pointing out the difference so to
explain Pauls point of view has a reference point.

I do hope it is the latter but that is only by personal
prefernce :-)

As to why would I have a virtual axe to grind with anyone, well I
hav'nt. :-) I merely mentioned the point that I don't have an axe
to grind because in the past Paul and I have exchanged a few
heated emails.

        Are you a man or a mouse, come on squeek up!
