What a beautiful noise
Comin' up from the street
Got a beautiful sound
It's got a beautiful beat
It's a beautiful noise
Goin' on everywhere
Like the clickety-clack
Of a train on a track
It's got rhythm to spare
It's a beautiful noise
And it's the sound that I love
And it fits me as well
As a hand in a glove
Yes it does
Yes it does

I use a old ps/2 Compaq keyboard. And it is not a bit quite. It is a noisy beast and I like it.

Projection.
Television takes on a new meaning when you have a 130 inch (10.8 foot / 3.3 meter) picture image to watch.

I was going to post 'Tomato', BUT, I knew that 'scientifically' a Tomato is a fruit....

I was unaware that Cucumber is disputed as a Veggie.... So, 'scientifically' why
is Cucumber NOT a Veggie??? (Just for clarification, and to better my knowledge.)

It's like a tomato. We treat and tax it like a veggie but it's legally a fruit. There is even a U.S. Supreme Court case on that.

Yes, sadly many fruits still get confused with vegetables around the world.
