You should've been here the first half of the week. VOG so think you could use if for stage-effect fog. Clearing out now, but if you still want some, just head to the Big Island. They always have plenty to spare.

-ERD50 (you guys are cracking me up!)
Not to hijack a hijack, but I made my first joke at about age 9 or 10. My older sister (the know-it-all) "corrected" me when I pronounced the word llama with the "L" sound intact. She was quite insistent that when one saw a double l (as in llama) it was ALWAYS pronounced with a "y" sound (as one would if one were Spanish, I guess). So, When Sea Hunt came on a day or two later, I told her to come watch our favorite new show staring Yoyd Bridges. She was not amused - but I was.

Why are we whispering?

Maybe your neighbor is trying to tell you in a polite way that you are accidentally showing a little too much through your open windows as you enjoy the fresh air? Do you keep the curtains closed?
