    How do you react to the word 'larch'?

    I was looking at maps of the Columbia Gorge area when I saw Larch Mountain. I couldn't help smiling, hence this poll.

    Have lived with larch trees all my life and consider them wonderfully beautiful. They are the the brilliant autumn gold on many mountains around here, a natural and bright yellow-gold that shines against the dark green of the evergreen forest around them. It is not metalic gold and valuable in that fashion, but the beauty is more valuable to me on the land.

    My thoughts exactly. I started with a smile and broke into a chuckle.

    Right at the time that MPFC was first shown on the PBS station in NYC (~1975), I was taking an Art History class in High School. It was a great class, but we sat through a lot of slide shows of paintings. Once in the a while, in the dark room during a slide show, someone would chime in "Number one..." and someone else would answer "The larch" (I of course never did either )

    We did much the same during a speech class. At least once a class, when the prof said the word "speech" followed by a pause, a guy would say, "By all means, let's have it, man!"

    After the third time with the prof being good-natured about it, others in the class started chiming in with their own versions:

    "Yes, of course - why not? Quite a good thing for communicating with others."

    After a month the prof became quite adept at jumping in with his own versions.

    "Speech? Now? In the middle of class? Are you mad?"

    and "Speech? Of course it's speech! Otherwise how could you possibly have heard me!"

    This was a great inside joke until one of the visiting asst heads of department concluded he was talking to himself.
