Why does the word "Vista" pop up into my brain.

Did you mean gourmet or gourmand? :-P

By strange coincidence, one of the clues in a crossword I was doing this morning was: "Lover of good food". So what do you reckon Bruce?

A gourmet is a lover of good food.

A gourmand just eats as much as possible.  Drinks plonk, eats junk food.  Just like me :-P

I knew the difference.

The answer was as per your original suggestion and the proper dictionary definition: "gourmand". But I have to say that, although it was an Aussie crossword, I have never heard the word used in everyday conversation. It's always gourmet.

One can be a gourmand gourmet, or a gourmet gourmand, but not every of either is both.

And so did we (sorry!).  Usually Christine posts a topic.

I usually prefer everybody ignore my birthday.  It just embarrasses me.

Daughter has fall break this week.  She'd be eager to get home and see her parents right?  Wrong.  She took a bus to Pittsburgh to visit family, a third coast buddy, and see Pittsburgh Symphony play Shostakovich 5.  Priorities.

Yep, that happens!  My daughter goes to school in California, on the trimester calendar, and plays basketball.  Other than a scant week at Christmas, we really don't get any extended time with her until her 2 week Spring Break, which falls between 2nd and 3rd trimester and is after her season.  And this year, she's decided to stay in Pasadena and do some West Coast travelling.  This after staying out there this past summer as well (at least that involved employment and gave me an excuse to go to the ITF!)

Oberlin has a winter term for most of January, so winter break is pretty short.  The winter term project can be most anything, but I don't expect hers to happen here.
