    I don’t know if I can best the likes of google and wikipedia on the subject, but I can try. They are sturdy boisterous bushes that grow predominantly in moderate-climate wild mountainous regions, but are also known to be successfully grown domestically on plains. You can cut off branches and hang them on walls for aroma and ambiance. Once the leaves are dry, you can compact them and use to brew herbal beverages. The taste is very nice and it’s supposed to be good for you.

    If you are looking for a non-alcoholic beverage to offer at a roasted baby wild boar dinner reception you are hosting, then chilled rhododendron tea, infused with wild honey, fresh citrus fruit, and forest berries, is perfect. If your grown-up guests are looking for an edge in their glass, this is where pure clear liquors and carbonated mineral waters are invited into the mix.

    Please disregard this @SoBad 's recommendations; while on sabbatical in Anatolia, I drank some rhododendron tea made by a mountain mystic and woke up in a Turkish prison morgue.

    Not many people get to wake up once in the custody of a medical examiner’s office. The lesson to be learned here is if you’re going to engage in unsavory high-risk activity at the fringes of Eurasia, you might as well gulp down some rhododendron tea beforehand, because that’s your best ticket once you check into the morgue.

    It comes a time in your life when you gotta ask yourself: Is Nadalgirl26 married with children already? Is she happy? Is she writing the next great novel, the "War and Peace" of our generation? Or at least some Paulo Coelho-like crap? Is she losing it at some Justin Bieber's playback gig? Does she still believe or care about the 47 slams? Where is she?

    British singer-songwriter Al Stewart once wrote a song about how the passage of time catches up with us all. I believe it was called "In Search of Lost Time; or Remembrance of Things Past."

    I don't think he's done by a long shot. Older, slower yes. Yet, I do think he'll retool and pick his spots. Also, I predict more majors. Not sure if it'll be 1 or more than that. We shall see.

    I think the OP made a typo. Probably meant to say 74, not 47.

    HAha !!!

    So true, or has she just created another account and still posts away merrily.
    Every time I see your ava/username, I think of that epic thread of yours, The TTW Dictionary. Why have you not updated it, or created other such gems ?

    I guess it's time to bump this thread from our favourite believer.

    Wherever she might be, she is a little closer to her dream. Respect.

    Rafa completing La Decima definitely means he is closer to 47. It's just that 47 is a bridge too far.

    Congrats Rafa for a job well done!

    Bump friggin time!!!

    On the eighth day, Goderer created Gilles Muller and the exquisite performance he produced at 14-13 to further stymie this prediction.

    According to my fuzzy math, we are looking at 2025 at best, no?

    Was kind of looking forward to another Fedal final, but I'll settle for Fed winning against whomever at this point. At least, that's what I'm hoping for.

    If I am not mistaken, Federer-Djokovic final is on Friday, no?
    Sewretch must be very sad and probably didn't feel like eating for 14 minutes after the match.

    lol, I get the Wimby channel. I must've favorited that at some point. :D My comps go wonky on me. I'm envisioning some sort of Casablanca scene here... I refuse to play the part of Bogie's lover, though!

    Fed phans, donut be too cocksure that Fedz reaches the final. He has GoatNic and Goatovic in his way still.

    Cilic plays a dead-beat Muller and then the winner of Murray-Querrey. So Cilic gets a tired opponent in the semi again and comes in daisy fresh for the final.

    Fedz semifinal will be no cake-walk.

    Sorry to tell you that m8.

    Muller may be dead tired, but he certainly is no dead-beat.

    Honestly, I've never heard it used to refer to that, ever.

    http://www.dictionary.com/browse/deadbeat

    I mean I'll take your word for it that maybe in other parts of the world it might mean that, but certainly anyone you said that to in the States would think you meant that he's someone who avoids paying his debts or skirts responsibilities.
