Thanks to John Howland for the following, who had to remind us that our “some” of our coinage came courtesy of the Brits.

THE Q & A POSTS
Thanks for all the nice comments about the recent Q & A posts. Keep in mind they are only as good as the interviewees, a.k.a. the individual answering the questions.

I usually refer to Dave as “Beanie” but will refrain from doing that here since he was nice enough to answer my questions. Continue reading →
