    I just wanted to say that I “got” the reference to the great 90s Canadian band Moxy Fruvous that Laura made during the Doris Lessing discussion. (I confess, I always get that song stuck in my head whenever I hear her name!) Too bad that the band is no longer together, but they live on in my mp3 player.
