Going with "fecundity" unless Ben states otherwise.

Tilt - is that a tongue coming out of a nose? :shrug:

It is just a pink cow's nose; no tongue in sight and I know that Ben forgot an "n". Fecudity is a pretty cool word. The fecudity of ruminating cows.

Thanks everyone
I sometimes drop odd letters due to the design of my laptop.

Fecundity is what I meant!
Cheers

Of course, but the mistake was a lot more fun. And it was a delightfully feeble excuse for posting cow noses. Can wait to find an equally feeble excuse to post pictures of dog noses.

Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Bodhidharma
Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.
