Yes, I copied straight from dictionary.com but I think it’s okay as long as I give a full reference. There’s a lot more info there if you follow the link. It’s a hot day in the middle of summer and I’m going through old entries that need updating or content addition.
In other words, it was either do nothing or do this.

Basically I just wanted a bit of background for my entry on Medusa, which also needs updating!

I should be at the beach…🙂
