Okay, I lied.  I meant to send this one, just because of the sheep remark.

DUMMIES DAILY: Word of the Day


TODAY'S eTIP(TM): lambent (sheen on sheep?)   {or KEEN on sheep, in Sean's

lambent [LAM bent]


1. Playing lightly over a surface, flickering: Said of a flame,

2. Giving off a soft glow.

3. Playing lightly and gracefully over a subject: Said of wit,
humor, etc.

     The lambent sunbeams on the babbling brook, the fresh scent
     of lilacs in the air, and the orioles singing in the trees
     reminded CyberSue of the gardens she'd toured virtually via
     a multimedia Web cam.
