Referring to my remark that I never got around to introducing myself, even though I've been an MWF member for "donkey's years":
Well, Byron, Better Late Than Never!!  I know I'd love to hear more about you, and I'm probably not the only one!! (Although I'm sure it wasn't you Dave was referring to...)
Penny

As to info about me, the supply greatly exceeds the demand, so that I've been reluctant to get involved in that.  However, now that I'm reminded of the request, I have a pot of information boiling, and when it boils down enough that only objects of interest are left--if there prove to be any--I've resolved to burden the waiting world with the preferably unscorched residue. If, by then, I can still find the "welcom wagon" thread, that is. Watch that space, all ye not easily bored.

Books by Byron and Kay McAllister can most easily be obtained as e-books or in print from the publisher at http://www.writewordsinc.com/ For "Undercover Nudist," the print version is an improved version of the ebook version. The others are the same in both formats.

My husband has been trying to get our young neighbor to start a business doing virtual acupuncture (she's studying it in NY), but he seems to have it confused with virtual voodoo... and now that this idea has stuck in his head there is no shaking it loose.
I get the pun on "acupuncture" and "stuck" (in his head), but if there's another based on "shaking," I missed it.  Byron

There wasn't one that I am aware of.  I pun by accident, especially when I am tired.  I generally don't catch them.  The people around me find this tendency amusing, especially those who are into puns....

What's a Sagittarian??

Clueless Penny.

PS Also, could someone please explain "Bollywood" to me? It's in the media all the time, even here, but I managed to somehow miss it.

Penny
You are not clueless obviously your mind is concerned with higher things.

A Sagittarian is someone who is born under the star sign Sagittarius. Which is one of 12 symbols that make up the Astrological Calendar. I'm an Aquarian, my star sign is Aquarius.

As for Bollywood it is the colloquial term for Indian Cinema. American movies are all associated with Hollywood but Indian Films are largely made in Bombay so some 'smart alec' put the words Bombay and Hollywood  together and came up with Bollywood. A term Indian filmmakers themselves have adopted.

Hope this helps
