    Great show guys! Jeff, please don't kick the Podcast Puppy out of the studio, he makes This and That shinier. Also, thanks for the Dave B, I felt that might be just for me ;0) Loved the Hey Ferg song, I've had that dang song about Neil in my head for two weeks now.

    Pat, the words about your dad were very moving and thoughtful, I really enjoyed it and was intrigued by your comments on the Libertarian debate, very insightful without any name-calling or blanket generalities. What a smart, balanced woman!

    Kisses, Danni

    Danielle - you know - I was actually looking for something else from Dave to play from his "Time Out" album and I discovered I don't have it! How did that happen? But - yes - Dave B was inspired by you!

    Okay, here's the scoop:

    "Nougat" is not just some weird, amorphous sweet stuff around which they pour caramel or chocolate.

    It is defined by various dictionaries as a confection made with sugar and/or honey paste and nuts mixed in there. (The nuts are etymologically important here.) The OED says it's got some egg white in there; I think that's probably the case with the white nougat you sometimes see.

    The word itself is based on the Latin word "nux / nuc" which means "nut." This word is the base of the word "nucleus," which is literally defined as "the kernel of a nut."

    Glad to be of nerdly service.

    Hi Dave,

    thanks for that word information1 I never would have guessed. Instead, Jeff was all in my face yesterday saying "nugatory" and "nougat" had to be related. I kept telling him, just because they sound the same doesn't mean they are the same. Is it too late for him to take your classes?!

    Hahaha!

    thanks again, pat

    Nope, you're right, Pat: "nugatory" is from a completely different Latin root, and means "trifling, insignificant."

    Of course, it sounded a bit like Jeff thought of nougat as a trifling or insignificant part of the candy bar, but we now know it is the very heart and nutty soul of the Snickers.

    Hey, what's with the increase in profanities? Rather unimpressive. I know it's your podcast and you can say what you like, but I thought this show was above that sort of thing. Oh well.

    Hmmm.. this is why it's good that you guys speak up... I'm going to have to go back and listen now.... Thanks!

    Hmmm, I'm bummed about that profanity comment too, I'll check and try to do better.

    The kids and I have been listening to quite a few of the shows and the we love it.
    I just wonder what's the deal with Pat and her dating problems? Gee, she's smart, funny, well spoken. I don't get it. Guys are dufuses sometimes

    Mark, thanks for your comments! As far as Pat goes, well I think she's just a bit too picky ;-)

    Awww, Mark,

    that's a nice thing to say. More importantly, I am a good cook! I don't know what the problem is. Three out of the four voices in my head agree I should be married by now. Hmmmm.

    We're not starting some kind of inter-PodCast political rivalry, are we?

    I have to be admit being far-Left. Generally, I find myself arguing ideologically for things that support my far-left leanings. I was caught aback today, though, by Jeff. I realized that I've become so entrenched in my ideology that I've not left myself open to other possibilities. (This ain't sarcasm, buddy, this is actual positive feedback.) When Jeff said that maybe free-market forces might be appropriate for some things, but not necessarily long term things. I've always thought I was willing to be open in thought, but Jeff's simple statement definitely kicked me in the head.

    Sure, my response to your simple comment sounds goofy, but our politics and candidates offer a whole platform or nothing. We've got a gubernatorial race coming up here, so maybe there are things I can do to encourage the candidates to be a little more open to compromise. Somebody's gotta break this whole "with us or against us" belief system.

    I didn't notice the profanity, but the voices in my head curse more than both of you anyway... and, Pat, they agree with your voices.

    Keep up the good work, guys.

    I totally forgot to mention a book that I wanted to recommend.

    Jennifer Government is a great book. If you want to have one vision of what happens when the free-market is allowed to run free... read this puppy. It's a quick read, and I think it totally rocks.

    Brad,

    Thanks so much for sharing your views with us. I have GOT to check out that Jennifer Government - it looks like a good recommendation!!
