Pronunciation: Bom`ba*zine"

(also bombasine)
Definition: n.

Etymology: F bombasin f. med.L bombacinum f. LL bombycinus silken f. bombyx -ycis silk or silkworm f. Gk bombux; 1550s

Usage: Although Lady Jane Smith-Smythe-Smith was clad from neck to toe in widow's weeds of the dullest black bombazine, the dashing adventurer Lucas Langdon easily discerned that the luscious young woman was not overly distressed by the loss of her eighty year old husband. A few brief but passionate moments in the garden quickly confirmed his impression.

Maintenance - all done.

Howdy folks!

Thanks to all viewers and volunteers for your patience while we worked everything out. All posters have been added for the last day or so, just awaiting on cecilegrey's response to be a member so I can add her as a poster.

The rest of you, mind, are welcome to start.. well.. from yesterday! Just wanted to formally let you know that we're back underway, just in case any of you were unsure!

Over the course of the next few weeks I might be tossing out some new ideas, asking for feedback, etc. I've noticed, though, that we have 2831 posters, but hardly any of you comment! So, make yourself known, let me know what you'd like to see or provide some feedback! After all, I'll be running this community for you guys!
