A great word, one of those I've always liked. I must find a way to use it more often ;)

Also, question--I see you regularly post a word of the day to this comm--would you, by any chance, be interested (or do you know of anyone else who might be interested)in posting a weekly word of the day to the 1word1day comm?

Many thanks :)
