I never did see what the negative connotations were, frankly. And no, I'm
not really tempted to go look it up in the archive. I suppose we could call
it BayPG. (I suspect we keep a PG rating anyways.) Of course, some of us
might be tempted to corrupt that to BayPC... ahem. I'm a big fan of
Charlotte's Web. Piggies are smart (so I'm told).
And yummy. Reminds me to thaw the guanciale for dinner.

-0 on the name change. Unless someone comes up with some awesome name, I
don't see it being worth the trouble.

It is fate, but call it Italy if it pleases you, Vicar!
