That said, I don't expect, or really want, you to explain: it's just that it's a simple declarative statement that has a koan*-like ability to foment questions the longer you let it lie in your mind. And I, as a Romantic, prefer provocative questions to 'definitive' answers.

My eldest is selling mail-order clothes around our village to raise money for a school outing. I am now in possession of SO much more information than I needed about the underwear choices of our exclusively pension-age neighbours. :o :|

I've got more Disky product

a label like Dutch Disky

One comp to avoid, though, is Disky's "Best of the 70's"
