    That would be great! Thanks! I read something about the possibility of spy ware embedded in some of the freebies online, so haven't tried them.

    Post Jabberwocky

    The poem is from Alice, but it's in the books, I don't know if it's been in any of the movies.

    'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
    All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe.

    "Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
    Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
    The frumious Bandersnatch!"

    He took his vorpal sword in hand:
    Long time the manxome foe he soughtó
    So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
    And stood awhile in thought.

    And, as in uffish thought he stood,
    The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
    Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
    And burbled as it came!

    One, two! One, two! And through and through
    The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
    He left it dead, and with its head
    He went galumphing back.

    "And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
    Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
    O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
    He chortled in his joy.

    'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
    All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe.

    From a Lewis Carroll glossery, a Bandersnatch is a swift moving creature with snapping jaws. Capable of extending its neck. Yikes.

    A treacle? I think it''s a candy or treat of some sort. Something more of the real world than a Bandersnatch

    Oh, and "treacle" is pronounced 'tree-cle'. At least I think so. It doesn't rhyme with freckle.

    Re: Jabberwocky

    Thanks for looking that up for me Annie! It really was a big question mark, and I bet I wasn't the only one wondering. hehehe... So if I reach bandersnatch level...it'll mean I've been yapping my gums off! Beware. =)
