Actually, I don't think "cherry" very accurately describes _any_ of our
multitudinous Sir Galens <wink>. However, improved certainly fits us
all, since all of our "formulas" have been changed since our respective

OTOH, almost any of them are an improvement over what I usually get,
"Hey you! Get back to work!"
