The vainglorious Vaspersphere is literally crawling with beauty and lovelies.

Nice to hear from you DCS! You always had one of the best online names: Disgruntled Car Salesman. My wife said I might be good at selling cars. As an avid hiker, I was perplexiglassed.

I was thinking about you today in fact, as I mailed out the new CompuMusik CD.

Want one?

Or are your nightmares already provided with a musical score and soundtrack?

You mustn't like my newish post on "PC? No: SC, Semantically Correct".
