Bowie, for his albums from 1976 to 1982.
Sharks vs. the Internet: Which side do you choose?
Marc Bolan was the correct answer.
Definitely sharks. Leave them alone they're only hungry.
Most wretched default smiley
Bahh!!! So : D now resorts to a hideous default? Computer please instruct on how to kill these wretched nuisances.
I would choose sharks too.

Do you follow the JGP series?
We used to have "Mister Lincoln" in the rosebed at my childhood home. :smile:sad: "Henry Fonda" is quite a nice rose but it would never make me think of Henry Fonda. Or perhaps that doesn't matter.
Flower names for people:

flowering fruit trees:
They're all lovely.
1. Least bearable as a novelist:
2. Which of them was most redeemed by his poetry and/or short stories?
Hardy is the only one of those three who wrote a novel I've actually read from cover to cover. While the correct answer to 2) is probably Hardy or Hemingway, it's actually Lawrence's chapter on The Scarlet Letter from Studies in Classic American Literature that made the biggest impression on me.
Amendment to #85:
3. "New Year's Eve" (Hardy) or "The Killers" (Hemingway)?
I think my vote must go to Hemingway's stunning "The Killers", but some of Hardy's poems would beat it.
1. Lady Chatterley's Lover:
2. Are the forget-me-nots really necessary?
1. " ? (Nah.) " would be my guess.
2. Necessary or not, they beat impatiens, begonias, and African violets, surely.
1. Did I just demonstrate my failure to get the second question?
2. Which of us is more well-read, me or VA Beckham?
2. They certainly do, but the main trouble with impatiens, begonias, and African violets is that they don't grow in Nottinghamshire woodlands. The flowers are, you know, sort of interwoven, kind of, into their hair, you know. But not that which is on their heads. Take it off your reading list; it wasn't fit for the 20th century, let alone this one.
1. Well......yes more than no. And purple get-me-nots are a crime against nature, like the pink daffodil.
2. Well, VA Beckham (I'm pleased to see that you've spoken of her in a polite manner), has read two books, one being that Harper Lee thing, and the other A Brief History of Time. So you tell me, f_d.
Bertrand Russell or Nigel Farrago?
Well, let's see. There was Madeline in the first grade, and then I read The Little Red Book a few years later. Oh, and I also read Speaking for Myself, by Cherie Blair, about five or six years ago. That's three. Does the 1995 Old Farmer's Almanac count? That would bring the grand total to four, which would be fully twice as many books as my chosen competitor has read.
the main chamber of the British House of Commons (on aesthetic grounds): yay or nay?
