Ha ha, Bill - What: no Sound of Music? I'm tempted to rhyme, but as it's
expected, I'll avoid that too! I worry that it is a form of snobbery, but I
do it too. Only sometimes I pontificate on high about the social impact of
mass hysteria ... eg, Beatlemania, Harry Potter, Gangsta rap,
I love the 'housing reno's' and 'pre-disposed' rhyme :-)
