RE: Lemon Juice in Ants Pooh-Poohed

Paul, I agree with you: "enough is enough". Post a recipe and get it out of your system. Kwitcherbitchin'. <G>

Any thoughts on the evolution or travel patterns of sugar/chocolate coated arthropods who have chosen database clerking as a career?  "I gotcher foreign constraints right *here*, buddy."


p.s. btw, I have to build a database with special NLS needs to track ant colonies near chocolate factories and my developers think i am responsible for the data but I am not, am I? Also, I want to convert "man" files into text for InterMedia into the database using FK constraints. Can anyone help me? Oh, please "it's urgent"

Can't the list members PUH-LEEZE stick (mostly) to messages germane to the purpose of this list?  I don't mind the occasional off-topic post, but, for crying out loud, how about a little restraint?  The original recipe posting(s) have given rise to a plethora of  messages about chocolate, sugar, ants, travel, etc. etc.

I open list messages as they arrive and I don't appreciate the cumulative waste of my time in reading all of this nonsense. 

If you all MUST ventilate at length about eating chocolate-covered ants, let's adopt a convention of including "OFF-TOPIC" in the message header, at least, so it's possible to filter them out.

And no, I am not a grouch, curmudgeon, in need of lightening up, etc. Sometimes enough is enough, already.
