    The chart on the blog shows a series of Venn diagrams, which are used in symbolic logic. They group items according to factors that they have in common. Or don’t have in common. NOR is neither, NAND means “not and” and XNOR “exclusive nor.”

    Imagine that the square is a field with those two intersecting circles drawn on it, and all the people in town are on the field. All of the people who like baseball are told to stand inside circle A. All of the people who like football are told to stand inside circle B. All of the people who like both baseball and fotball are told to stand inside the are where the two circles intersect. All of the people who have a life are told to stand outside the circles. The shaded area shows where cetain people stand—“A” is “everyone who likes baseball.”

    Okay. The “A and B” symbol means “people who like both baseball and football,” with their region shaded. “A nor B” means “people who like neither baseball nor football.” “A XOR B” means “all the people who like either basebal or football, but excluding the people who like both sports or neither sport.” “A NAND B” means “everyone except the people who like both sports.” “True” means “Everyone in town, now that it’s soccer season, and if we cared about soccer we wouldn’t be Americans, now would we?”

    Oh no! Never give up. Never give up on anything if you really want it!

    My hubby would have loved a phone call from Annette F. He says he had quite the crush on her when he was in high school. He liked her ………….. chest.

    Sometimes you have to give up only to find again that which you have lost.

    She gave up because she’s an incurable romantic. In other words, the antibiotics no longer work.

    I, on the other hand, have never given up on romance. I stuck it in the closet for a couple of years after my first marriage went to Pluto, but I dragged it out, sent it to the dry cleaners, and got it back all bright and shiny again.

    We did that in school nearly 50 years ago.

    Yeah, that’s when I learned to make typos, too.

    The German soldier looks a little like Chevy Chase.

    ….but has romance given up on you?

    @BillThompson

    All of the people who have a life are told to stand outside the circles

    I am aware that there are only two seasons to the year: Baseball season and Football season. (No @pcolli, I don’t mean soccer. I mean Football with a capital F.)

    So, now I’m confused.

    If Baseball is love and Football is life who are the people standing outside of the circles?

    I’ve found that romance and money do seem to go hand in hand.

    I have a spare copy of the dvd “Romancing the Hand” that I could sell you…
