Thanks! It's one of my few Teonaht originals. Maybe I should
change it to "I know why a billygoat has a beard." But that's
taken from the Book of Taliesin, 14th century Wales (the manuscript,
that is). Taliesin knows everything. (the 6th century guy, that
is! <G>) Taliesin on the list probably knows everything, too, but
I can't vouch for him.
