Much more annoying, and also somewhat hazardous to your health, is the castor bean tick (Ixodes ricinus). I have caught Lyme disease from a tick bite, which was cured by antibiotics. All of this is a sneaky way to fold the thread back to tennis: Samantha Stosur was away from tennis for quite a while a few years a ago due to Lyme disease.
Glad you survived the tick bite okay---and that was one of the best segue-ways I've seen at TF in quite a while

If you'd like to do something helpful,you could use your Canadian-ness and persuade Rebecca Marino to dress up in her Bruce's Gf Costume.She may as well render that imitation since she's only been IMPERSONATING a tennis player for most of this year

As a nation I believe that we have agreed to put all of our eggs in the Milos Raonic basket.

Still, do not be too down on Rebecca. I believe she had a series of nagging injuries this year. If she can stay healthy next year she could make a push into the top thirty.

That sounds great!So you can persuade her to play those two Mexican tourneys in the first half of the year to help her gain her form...heck,she could stay for a while and play some higher-priced ITFs....while she's doing that I'll....ummmm......show her around to make sure she doesn't get lost in between matches

This year saw a new record number of little monsters (dressed up kids not nasty kids) knocking on the door. 11 kit-kats, and 11 packs of Haribo star Mix handed out, being an increase of 1100% over 2010 and 45% over 2009. Just as well London supermarkets sell 10p packs and bars limiting fiscal losses to under £2.

Globalisation... It's happening erratically by the year I tell you

I had the first visit of its kind ever here in Copenhagen, and I wasn't prepared for one. This is somewhat embarrassing since I once went trick-or-treating myself when I lived in the U.S. Let's see now (calculates, checks and double checks) -- that would be 49 years ago.

Anyway my increase was from 0 to 1, which easily tops 1100 % - or any other percentage you might want to choose.

I did learn the Danish translation for trick og treat: slik eller ballade!

My favorites: Caroline Wozniacki, (Patty Schnyder), Samantha Stosur, Julia Görges, Natalie Schiller. Your favorites may differ.

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro:Off-topic 4 the POPULAR #1

Just found out the other day that the MM year-ender will be in Sofia next season;if I recall correctly,that's the capital of Bulgaria.Perhaps you Europeans could update me: Is Sofia really a nice spot that the players would enjoy at the end of the year??I know it's in southern Europe right above Turkey;is it not cold there in November??Regardless,I can't imagine that it would be anywhere equal to the Bali beaches as a desired destination for players.......but you all can tell me if I'm selling the town short

It started about 30 years ago here and fizzled out, but about 5-6 years ago it returned with the same three young girls each year seeing an opportunity for some candy. Today, the supermarkets have caught on, originally stocking pumpkins, and now a whole line of cheap small portion bags, and costumes etc. Copenhagen beware...

I used to hand out a satsuma, mini box of raisins and a mini carton of orange juice, but the kids all look at you like your nuts, so along came Haribo with mini bags to save the day.

Glad to here there are older oldies than me here in Caroland Where in the US were you based?

Fastelavn?

Fastelavn er mit navn,
boller vil jeg have,
hvis jeg ingen boller får,
så laver jeg ballade.

Boller op, boller ned,
boller i min mave,
hvis jeg ingen boller får,
så laver jeg ballade.

A few years ago,the Ravens had a quarterback named Kyle Boller(he's a back-up for the Raiders now).He has a VERRRY powerful arm but can't throw too accurately,nor does he have good awareness on the field....I wonder if he comes from Danish ancestry...or perhaps his is an adapted name that was re-spelled for convenience's sake when his family first settled in the US

Let's just say it would be an unfortunate, but very funny, name, if he was living here. "Kyle is fucking" is literally what it means. Also, it's some kind of bakery, but noone would think of that, when pronouncing his name.

"boller" is also slang for balls. Men's balls, that is.
