Aliases

Henceforth:


My youngest daughter shall be known as "Belladonna".  That is not her real name so it respects her privacy.  "Belladonna" is Italian for Beautiful Woman.  It is in the nightshade family and contains alkaloids (atropine, scopolamine and hyosciamine that,  in very tiny quantities, dilate the pupils of the eyes making them appear large and dark.  A recent use for scopolamine is as a fast-acting antidepressant.  My youngest daughter usually cheers me up.

My youngest son shall be known as "Kubota".  Kubota is a brand of tractor.  It is usually painted orange.  They span the size range from large garden tractor to medium size farm tractor.  Kubota is an unstoppable force.
