      @drbj: Thank you for commenting. We will miss your Mother. She always had a kind word for me and my silly writing.

      Thank you. My mother loved writing and loved her followers. It was her passion these past few years. She was an amazing lady with a heart of gold!

      She was my BFF and I am going in time to try and continue writing hubs in her honor.

      It's a terrible shock to hear of her passing on Feb 20th. My heart feels truly heavy with sadness. I just knew you would be quite sad as well.

      I'm thankful we have her marvelous writing to keep forever.

      @brakel2 I am beyond delighted that my work makes you laugh - may it ever be thus. Since you evidence an interest, be advised that I am the matriarch of a loving and lovable family. :)

      @brakel2 : I've intruded on DrBJ enough: you'll have to go to the source!

      Thanks for stopping by. :)

      I thought drbj was a man. Is this not correct? I also like all these off the wall facts about the professor, even the funny ones that are not true. Everything that DRBJ writes makes people laugh and have superb originality. If we can't have a little fun in life, we are pretty boring. I might be boring if I did not know the writer of this hub, be he man or woman. Blessings to you. Audrey

      Thanks for replying. I like your attitude. Well, I guess all the "differences" makes the world go round....! It's best to be "OK" with everything! Peace, Paula

      @fpherj48 , you ask an excellent question. I can only answer from my perspective:

      1. It's all in fun.

      2. I'm not sure if blue is a sentient human or a manic little Turing Machine. Either way is OK with me.

      @drbj : Thank you for your wit and wisdom. The Internet is a yucky place yet you make it feel safe and fun.

      Feel free to appropriate any capsules or components thereof. What's thw worst that can happen: Google already hates us 'cause we have a non-quantifiable sense of humor.

      Dear nicomp - For perhaps the first time in my life (since infancy), I am absolutely speechless. Almost wordless, too. How could you possibly have divined all these putative yet no less profound peculiarities of yours truly?

      I am astounded by your perspicuous perspicacity and reminiscent research. Also thrilled by the honor you have herewith bestowed by sharing these gems of biographical, multifarious meritocracy. You are indeed a sentient, virtual comrade.

      Can't say the same for the commenter who can't spell its (?) name.

      Thank you for this compelling creation. I may replace my formal HP profile with it. Whatcha think?

      I love drbj...and especially his series on the insane laws still on the books per State. His personal comments throughout make me laugh out loud!

      nicomp.....just a question because I'm a very curious kind of person.....Is this exchange between you and blue, an example of friendly joking & sarcasm.?....or do you take what he said seriously?

      I don't want to believe he is serious because his comment is actually quite rude....and thus far, I haven't seen this in him.....

      Sometimes, as intelligent as I am, I find I'm terribly naive.

      It's raining, I tried that.

      I'm thinking you don't understand the meaning of the word 'good' because no one with half a brain would mistake this for good.

      What grade are you in?

      I was trying to return the favor by reading some of your inane drivel but could only find this insipid banter and even though it allowed me to learn more about Dr. Banal Jargon, I found it to be less than satisfactory . . . I will keep searching though only 901 more to go.
