Look ma, I duhn lernded me tew werds!

Puce (often misspelled as "puse", "peuse" or "peuce") is a color that is defined as ranging from light grayish red-violet (the version shown at right) to medium to dark purplish-brown, with the latter being the more widely accepted definition found in reputable sources. The Oxford English Dictionary dates the use of "puce" (in couleur puce) from 1787. The first recorded use of puce as a color name was in the 14th century, in the French language.[1]


Chartreuse (UK /ʃɑːˈtrɜrz/, US /ʃɑːrˈtruːz/ or /ʃɑːrˈtruːs/;[2] French pronunciation: ​[ʃaʁtʁúz]) (the web color) is a color halfway between yellow and green that was named because of its resemblance to the green color of one of the French liqueurs called green chartreuse, introduced in 1764. Similarly, chartreuse yellow is a yellow color mixed with a small amount of green that was named because of its resemblance to the color of one of the French liqueurs called yellow chartreuse, introduced in 1838.[3]

To rephrase Crocodile Dundee... That's not a truck. This is a truck.



Oh, and a speedy pony too.

The only shot of my little DIY-mobile working. Tough little SOB, 150k hard miles and runs like a champ.

Well might as well throw mine into the mix. Pretty, serves its purpose. Hauls the kids in the back seat with enough room not to kick me, pulls a trailer, and put crap in the bed.
