    When my father worked at the embassy in Paris, he went to Geneve many times. This was before I was born, and he had a cover job. I have been there twice, and always felt the city to be cold. For some reason, Switzerland, Austria, and Germany have always been too cold for my liking.

    I found Verkhoyansk a bit to warm and stuffy for my liking.

    Federer would have learned to play better volleys if he grew up there (ice is better than old-school grass for volleys!)...

    Mike B reminds me of Maya Bulgakova, a Russian actress who acted in Wings (1966).
    Mike is she some aunt of yours ? Or some relative :) ?

    Yelena Bulgakova might be closely related to M.B. especially if she holds medical licentures both in the states of CA or NY [or perhaps even in the state of Florida].:-D

    All these possibilities of relations will have to be kin to the gifted author Mikhail Bulgakov depicted in our beloved poster's avatar.

    Our beloved poaster is probably having beluga caviar on rye as we speak, washed down with a barrel of vodka. :)

    Dead Zeppelin killed himself with far less than a barrel of vodka. What made him so unreachable???

    40 [plus] shots is too much, too lethal in just one sitting (even if it spanned the whole of 24 hours), Dude Sepp might've been unreachable had he surpassed Sir Michael Philip Jagger's 40 Licks.:)

    Nine forty-ouncers in eighteen holes, and you still have scored less than Tiger these days, but not in Tiger scoring holes back in the day on a sunny afternoon...

    McDonald's has introduced tasty mozzarella sticks to their menu...3 for $1 and they're not that bad if they're fresh out of the fryer.

    Hold your crotch, I mean hold your catch of oysters, use your paring knife to pry them open, cut off the beard with your Excalibur (if it is green-lipped mussels instead of oysters)... oops, now I'm dazed and confused (I'll have to consult with Fed Seppilin regarding unreachable ''Word Association''.:wink:
