I guessed correct on T or C. To hear lovers of it talk, you'd think it was more like 4 tons, not tins. LOL!

Thanks, lt. It's almost the weekend.

LOL- When I lived in NYC back in the sixties, I had a friend who invited me to share a New Year's dinner with her at her appartment (we were both "out-of-towners")

She served a whole SPAM, trimmed just like a ham would be, with pineapple slices and cherries.........

BTW- on the "Definition" questions, I give you the first letter of the answer to help out a bit.

I got everything but six and eight. Six because...I just didn't know, and eight, probably because I haven't had a television for some eighteen years.
