        In the beginning, God created tea; then He got around to light, dark, and all that other stuff.

          Remind me again, what's that two letter word ending in "i"? The puzzle wasn't that difficult, but if you focused on that pi, it could have been tough, as it was for that 86% who are not reading our comments.

            Glad it's not really a dead language - we still have little bits like "quid pro quo" and the other phrases you remembered, gang, but it's too bad it isn't taught in school anymore. Do they even offer study of Greek and Latin word roots anymore?

                                Lately I've noticed this site has many quotes by Lord Byron, whom I'd never studied before. Reading the quotes and his Wiki bio, I've come to find him over-dramatic about everything, and I've said so in my comments. Then last week I attended a small school reunion hosted at a house on Byron Road, and then I went to see Tom Stoppard's play "Arcadia," which turned out to use Lord Byron as a pivotal offstage character. So LB, if you're reading this, go ahead and toy with me; I still think you need Prozac.
