The generosity of friends can evince a hitherto unsuspected depth of feeling.

Pecuniary first appeared in English in the early 16th century and comes from the Latin word pecunia, which means "money." Both this root and Latin peculium, which means "private property," are related to the Latin noun for cattle, pecus.

Took me a shade under ten minutes to flush out ancient and unnecessary voice-mail messages from the 'mailbox'.

No longer near my limit.

Dozens of cheap umbrellas have been tested in the San Francisco bay area since yesterday. Most likely, all remain intact.

I should think the locality matter's less than:

A) finding a groomer willing to assume the risk

B) protecting your poodle adequately

And,

C) Accumulating enough needles.

In some ways, I find it hard to believe that they let Roger Moore hold onto the role of James Bond for so bloody long.

     I watch Animal Planet sometimes. They had a zoo program on recently with an aardvark.

     

     Aardvarks are quite common throughout much of Africa, feed on ants and termites, and are very OK.
