The last 25 show; I guess the rest goes to 'thank you' la la land.
Wow, 750+ pokes for 6,000+ posts, that's great feedback! I guess, I'd better start playing nicer with others...

Poke is correct actually. Poke Salad is made from the Poke weed. Never ate it myself, but knew older people who swore by it's medicinal properties (more often in a juice concoction). Of course, all those folks believed in Hoodoo (something totally different from Voodoo) and Poke played a part in their herbalism. Also saw it sometimes in the altars that my South American clientele used in Santaria rites.

And that's how we get to the old cowboy joke that ends with the punchline, "Honest, I was just helping that calf get over the fence!"

Hmmm. I have 7 "thanks", of which 2 have blank comments. All 7 are sitting there in the table in UserCP.
