Learning is fun

Deb just asked me where the word tampon came from… A quick search on reveals it is derived from the old French (or maybe German) word tampion.

1. A wooden stopper, or plug, as for a cannon or other piece of ordnance, when not in use.

2. (Mus.) A plug for upper end of an organ pipe.


More confirmation

There are a lot of reasons why I married my wife. Another reason was revealed today, she's never seen the movie _E.T_. Similarly, I've never seen the _Wizard of Oz_ (and I plan to keep it that way.) My father filtered much of my TV viewing. Watching VH1's I love the 80s I can appreciate how much crap he saved me from watching.
