It’s a word Larry Grossman Northwood will never forget how to spell, not that he would anyway. Larry won AARP’s National Senior Spelling Bee yesterday in Cheyenne, Wyoming, by spelling it.  C-o-n-g-r-a-t-u-l-a-t-i-o-n-s.

    Terry I have a question ? Is debouch like debauch ? Which is an act or occasion of debauchery, which is like an orgy ! Seduction from virtue or duty. Indulge in sensuality. Or to scatter a beam. Ask Larry if he knows. greenglaSS4

    greenglass… I don’t know Larry, but it debouch. I’m even more impressed that he knew how to sell
    botryoidal, a word I can’t say, much less spell.
