Quick Question

Hi Guys/Gals,

I see TNT written in titles alot, can I ask what it means? Sorry if I seem a bit thick, never seen or heard of it before. Apart from the explosive.

Regards

I had to ask also.

BTW (by the way) ISO = In Search Of. I had to ask what those meant also in the beginning!!

Sounds like the start of a joke In The Beginning she was ISO of a TNT ..... Sorry sometime you have to amuse yourself.

Ahhh... but what does tried 'n true mean?
Does it mean That person tried it 'n That person likes it?
I could have a recipe that I make all the time, but if your tastes don't match my tastes, does that make it tried an untrue?

Has anyone ever called you a brat? LOL XOXOXOXOX LUV YA!!

My take on TNT means that if you follow the recipe it will come out the same everytime. MAYBE!! LOL
