But I do have a question for you - I looked for 'Glup' and it is not in my dictionary. I thought it might be a misprint of 'glut' which means that wax might well stop up something, but then I read your profile, and anyone who is bothered by 'loose' and 'lose' (I once explained the finer distinctions of those two words to a poster) would not make an error. SO?

AGlupOfWax is a combination of various screen names I've used in the past. When my doppels died on 2/14, I incorporated them into my name. The "Glup" part came from "SeaOfGlup" which is from
"The Sea Of Glup" an old children's record by Jim Copp and Ed Brown

Their records are great fun! If you want to check them out:
