Comments: Chris Floyd Has Finally Stopped This "Vacation" Nonsense

Of the many blog-paths I daily travel, this is one of the most consistently pleasing and informative. It is with no slight trepidation that I must inform you that it is "cornucopia" (from "cornu", horn; and "copia", plenty), not "cornocopia".

Did you ever stop to think that rather than "horn of plenty," I might actually be saying "plenty of corn"? Did you ever think of that!??

Of course I wasn't, but I want to regain the upper hand here by making preposterous, shrill accusations.

Also: it's highly significant that your undercover wife selected you for this mission.

A lovely post. I missed him too. His blog and yours are on my very short list of daily stops. May you both keep up the very good work.
