    I had to look it up, Ellid.  It deserves a link, because it means literally "crunch in the mouth."  I almost died laughing, especially when I read the description of what it is.  I keep thinking of the Jackie Gleason TV show saying to his wife "Smack, right in the kisser," when he could simply have said "croquembouche!"

    I think the only book I have ever read that might be similar to a Krantz novel was Peyton Place (Grace Metalious), which, as a young adult, I remember reading for certain passages, but acutally ended up liking, sort of, the entire package.

    Well done, as usual, and love the springboard of family stories you offer.

    Just waitin' around for the new Amy Winehouse album
