I think you'll find it interesting...

Yes it was. When I go to sites like this I end up wandering through them reading all sorts of stuff. That is why I like my books of knowledge, or used to, as I could just flip pages and read such a variety of stuff. Not necessarily useful but certainly interesting and enrichening. Hmmm, have to look up that word as it doesn't seem to exist except in my grammer. lol
