My thanks again, Twocats. I must say that this way of forming new verbs does add colour and humour to language. It is, unhappily, something that happens far less in French than in English, which is a shame as we might otherwise have, for example Ho

According to Del Fandrich, a piano's design or quality is not based solely on the number or the size of its back posts. As always, a piano is the sum of all design elements, if one only look at one element in isolation, it becomes meaningless. Here

My favored piano will always be black. It's timeless, it's slimming, and always comes back in style when the fancy bubinga and burl have dizzied us all with their mind blowing swirl. Walnut, mahogany, rosewood or teak, they're cute for a while, but a

Satin mahogany-- I love a warm wood finish. There are probably other brown wood finishes that I'd also like, but that's the one that comes to mind. Funny that two of my pianos happened to be glossy reddish mahogany (flame and pyramid) which would

Burning the stockpile had no impact on the ivory market, at least in terms of supply, demand, or prices, because it's already been removed from the market (unless it's being pilfered and sold), so the market value for ivory already reflects its absen
