Funny, I was just looking at a web site/blog that has
a Pleasure Seekers entry and the amazing and catchy
song "What a Way to Die". I love the lyrics:

Well I love you baby
I’m telling you right here
But please don’t make me decide baby
Between you and a bottle of beer.


I'd love to hear more stories Joly!
