Lis, Let us know when you enter your second childhood and we will explain the arcana of Bugs Bunny et all.

You are quite welcome, any time, I am glad to be of assistance to your giggling!

P.S. If I were familiar with the characters behind the names you mentioned, Fudd and Buggs, I might even understand why you are giggling.  :-\
Here we go! A cartoon classic. :)

Oh you guys! I love you all, especially Brian:-*  for the entertainment and the education on the subject of American cartoons! I am not only chortling and giggling, I am laughing!

See, that's what I get for not having television, by choice, not necessity, and for spending my childhood in a foreign country!

Refresher course recommended?  ::)

Ah, Lis, this is GMG, not the NYT: there are no foreign countries.

Yes Gabriel! He was the one who mailed me and said let's come on over. This was in the winter of 2003, around this time of year, I remember now. The moderators came about a year later.

Indeed, I wrote to you, Herman! Yes, I'm quite sure it was in January or February 2003. I recall that there had been some problems in CMG for a while, and after a specific and unpleasant incident (which, fortunately I guess, I don't remember) many of the posters decided not to post in that site anymore, including me and those who you have mentioned. I don't know exactly how we got to GMG, but remember I received an e-mail from one of the members (possibly André/Lilas?) telling me about this site, so we coordinated by e-mail our arrival to this new musical home.

I also remember Lin from the (re)founding group. (Lin/Rach, if I'm not mistaken).

David, I am sincerely thankful to your words. I'm sure Haydn's music expresses itself very well, but if my enthousiasm contributed as a vehicle for your motivation, I cannot but feel a great and humble joy.
