    Weird so many of you would have that name.

    One more and you would have had a phalanx of Brian’s.

    Back to the Olympics.

    I too would rather have an Olympic medal (of any color) than a Super Bowl ring or NCAA Championship (although as a fan of a certain team - them winning one was of supreme importance, I'm spoiled now, but I could always use another one.) Looking at my local high school only, which I agree is not at all representative, but way more kids are participating in track & field than football in my town. Basketball might be pulling off the best high/long jumpers (Mike Powell could dunk by jumping from the free throw line, IIRC) so maybe we should consider encouraging some of the b-ball players to consider jumping (either high or long) as a back-up plan to athletic fame.

    Our group of 18 that studied in France had three Amys.

    We had a farewell/retirement lunch for one of our research nurses. Out of 15 or fewer, there were four Amys.

    Wait. Where’d you study?

    The plot, much like gelato, thickens.

    I did not discover that Lisa was a common name for people my age until I went to college. It was never a particularly common name in NC. Most people named Lisa were born in the '60s and early '70s. (I'm pushing for a comeback! New babies are going to start being named for all us Grandma aged Lisas, right?) I don't count as a Lisa in any official records though as I use it as a nickname for Elisabeth which is my middle name.

    I, actually, am not. And they use it for EVERYTHING there. Almost all salad dressings are made with it. Any sandwich you order, they slap on some moutarde de Dijon. It got old really fast.

    Interesting. Are you anti-mustard in general? Or just not Dijon?

    I love me some plain old yaller French's mustard. Ironic, isn't it? Dijonians are groaning from across the ocean.

    I like all mustards. I make a pretty good mustard steak sauce with sour cream as the base.

    English Coleman’s is my favorite. Lots of nose to it.
