    concerning #2. Checkout the song:I'm My Own Grandpa for suggestions to possible alternate possibilities with remarriages.

    If I remember correctly at some point, Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones was dating a girl and his son was dating the girl's mother which if they had married it would have been a very strange situation.

    Re: Some quickies

    Not bad, it can be done quicker though. If you still want to play.. the 3rd word is <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">PRANK</span hide>. I can do it with 7 words in between the keywords

    <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> Reminds me of years back, when I was trying to "get one over" playing Scrabble. I was trying to convince the opposition that a "KY" was a small traditional Lithuanian fishing boat.
