  Chirality - Somewhat off topic humor
From: Don Martinson <llmen at wi.rr.com> on 2011.10.27 at 01:46:49(22238)
Chirality may be more of a chemical term
and maybe dissymmetry may be more
biological. But nonetheless this reminds me of the old Flanders and Swann
song called "Misalliance":

Hi everyone,

This has been interesting to follow, and has me paying a little closer attention. But Mr. Martinson, your referenced song also reminded me of Fred and Gingers' "you say potato, I say potAto...." ditty. I've had a few plants do some crazy stuff, too. Always interesting, aren't they? By the way, the little Anthuriums are doing great and growing well. I water them with water from the tiny fall in the little Koi pond, and they seem to love it. :D

Take care, Sherry

Ah, but Fred and Ginger did not write songs, they just danced and sang a little. George and Ira Gershwin wrote that little ditty.

Just wanted to set the record straight.

Fair enough, Denis. Wasn't thinking about authors as much as just songs about "this way or that way", and it went off in my head! lol I just love Fred and Ginger! hahhahhaaa

Take care! Sherry
