Casting one's ancient mind back, that relates to the old 2 star, 3 star,
and 4 star...

Wasn't it Churchill who said that America and Britain were separated by a
common language. I had to look up decimalsation to figure out what you were
talking about. This brought to mind a day in 1976 when we were visiting
London and as we were walking into an underground (subway) station, this
lady approached us and asked if we had to pee. She immediately saw the
thunderstruck looks on our faces and held up a coin and said she was looking
for 2 P. She, being very astute, deduced that she was talking to 2 yanks.
My first car was a 1950 Ford Tudor Custom coupe. It got about 200 miles to a
quart of oil. I don't remember the gas mileage since gas at that time cost
about $.23 per gallon.

That'll be for you but I was thinking about the rest, that are glad if
