Dear Friends, And, as Bob Flaws, the new editor of "Yours
Aye" has just reminded us,
The delight of a list such as this one is that it
resembles a good
'buffet lunch' - one can wander through, take interest in what you want
need at the time and, without prejudice, leave the rest to others or
more studied attention later.
The potential for good or ill with such a varied list
f contributors is
enormous. Yet, despite differing backgrounds, age and cultural
the list unites a wide variety of people from many nations in
discussion. This very diversity is, of course, the great strength of
list which adds to the family links that unite the founders of the list
the vast majority, but not all, of the contributors. The diversity
backgrounds, humour, open-mindedness and non-prejudicial discussion
dominate the majority of debates are a constant source of delight
information. Long may it last. However,while most of the people may be
easily mis-construed term, it pays me to remember the truth of the old
tag - quot homines, tot setentiae - there are as many opinions as there
people - long may that continue. Differences lead to debate, debate
research and that's healthy.
Mark Twain didn't think much of a person's creativity if they couldn't
a word in at least two different ways!!
And, as we have seen from the Discussion List, it is possible for
contributors (NS for example) to have conflicting thoughts in the
of the same sentence.
And, before I am being assailed from every side for beginning sentences
"AND" , I am well aware that such a
practice is frowned upon which, in large
measure, is why I indulge in this grammatical faux pas.
As Tim points out; "Diversity is all". Or, perhaps, that
should read 'perversity'
