Reading again my own post, I think I wanted to say: "We should never be 
short on vase generators". English... tricky... ;-)

"One can never have too many vase generators." ?

Whoa, easy does it.   The guy is trying.

Don't ... get short with him, Bud.  He hasn't urned that kind of abuse.
Knowing English is one thing - bending it to one's will is a whole different
kettle of swimmy things.  It's not like he's smoking pot or anything - he's more
of a dried frog pill kinda guy.

Maybe I'm just cranky because I just emptied the last of my coffee carafe, but
this whole last part of the thread seems to be a crock.


:D

Living in the Netherlands and not smoking pot?  That's like living in
the Caribbean and not drinking rum.

Though I confess, I'm not a rum kinda guy.

I'm waiting for the legal situation to kettle down.  It's been on the
plate locally and federally, but with how efficacious the current
president of the USA has been, it probably won't happen until the 2030s.

Meanwhile, I'd imbibe a stout or porter more often if I didn't have to
drive.

I suppose I could visit some friends on Saba Island, which is close to
the Virgin Islands, but under Dutch jurisdiction.  The Caribbean basin
is mixed up like that.
