Hi Mac;

I've always presumed the same as you.

Furthermore, I've also noticed a Common House quirk that I'd like to 
bring up:

Why is there such a big emphasis on DINNER?  It seems like a lot of 
building and trouble for a relatively infrequent activity.  Personally, I 
recreate, work, dance, garden, and then eat whenever I get around to it, 
so I've been inputting my lifestyle into our CH programming in hopes of a 
design/function that encourages my activities.  For example, we have a 
small group, but we are constructing a Home Theater in our CH.  I believe
