No idea Vic - just had to look it up - I suggest you do the same.
I already have Jim, and it was not as you suggest a "facetious posting". You see, Californiconus californicus is a Venomous Snail! If you look at this website you will find that this snail is the most venomous animal on Earth! I just thought that you ought to be warned what you are up against.
Oh and one more thing.... You posted on 24 Oct 17 - 03:49 AM
I get angry and frustrated occasionally, but it is usually in response to being insulted
Yes, I agree with you, it is pretty horrible being insulted. Perhaps that is why you are always so careful to in your posts not to insult others.
Now, I need to add that you are pretty safe over there in the West of Ireland.... but I am not! I see Bryan pretty frequently and if you look back through these fascinating exchanges you will find that I have had cause to enrage Bryan, so to Bryan I say:-
Bryan,
I would like you to know that I have admired and been in awe of you all these years since I first got to know you in the early 1970s when we were in the Chanctonbury Ring Morris together through to our many meetings when we have been on the organising committee of last month's Lewes Folk Festival.
I would like to apologise profusely once again for the one letter slip in spelling your name which caused you to complain and I seek assurance that you will not use your highly specialized teeth, known as radulae which work like a combination hypodermic needle and harpoon to skewer and poison its prey on me.


That's all. I'll retire to the sidelines again, but will continue to read the discussion which, in the end, is going to make our world a much better place.
