    ...comes mans last mad surge of youth."

    The British are so eloquent in their speech.

    An American would say "that guy is middle age crazy" to express the same thought.

    That is so completely accurate, and I really loved the quote and the song.

    Which song? I wonder if we are thinking of the same song.

    Actually I think it's a quote from a movie that is used in a song.

    Well now, that would depend on which state you find yourself in.

    Well you know I recently had a very eloquent conversation with a friend in London and he explained something to me that I had never thought about before.
    " Do you know that Spotted Dick with out the raisons is just Dick!"

    Uh, speaking as a newly middle-aged man there, Mem, I've been crazier than a shithouse rat going on 6.5 yrs at my job, but I probably can outlast guys half my age. And 'sides, ain't you heard that 40 is now the new 30??:confused:

    No, but I can give you some "cream" if you really desire/need it there, K8.:wink::naughty:

    Is that anything like Hasty pudding? I was subjected to plum pudding once-can't say as how I liked it, since, I don't believe I did.

    I dunno, I've had some women extract some white pudding from my plum shaped member there, North!

    Ooooh thx! But I'm more of a custard girl when it comes to dick, spotted or otherwise! :tongue:



    Oh I don't know 'Hasty pudding' :redface:
    Plum pudding is a bit like Christmas Pudding, isn't it? Though more 'plummy' I presume :rolleyes:

    For a truly eloquent Brit, try Samuel Taylor Coleridge....read this poem, and feel the power...(From 'Christabel')

    'Alas! they had been friends in youth;
    But whispering tongues can poison truth;
    And constancy lives in realms above;
    And life is thorny; and youth is vain;
    And to be wroth with one we love
    Doth work like madness in the brain.

    But never either found another
    To free the hollow heart from paining,
    They stood aloof, the scars remaining,
    Like cliffs which had been rent asunder;
    A dreary sea now flows between.
    But neither heat, nor frost, nor thunder,
    Shall wholly do away, I we'en,
    The marks of that which once hath been.'
