To my fellow listmates, especially Shae and Peter,
The word _avoca_ is *not* Scandinavian. No chance. Very rarely
does one find a Scandinavian word w. a V or a C. And when one does,
it's a loan word. Got to be. Ikke sant? My hunch is that it is
Latin (as in _avoco_).
BTW, Here's a joke sure to cover about half the current threads.
Question: What do you call an Irishman that prefers women
over beer? Answer: A homosexual <G>. That ought to get all kind
of folk riled up. I hope <GD&R>.
Adios from Dave, your best-est pal in so. Cal.
