	I had assumed it was from the Scottish or (old english) "leven", and thus
meant "lawn".  Giving the words the equivalent of "yard dog".  Thus I've
always assumed that it was a pen name and we were having our legs (or other
appendages) pulled.  So I've never really read ANY of the posts that came from
that internet account.
	But, we do come to some strange conclusions here in Bucksnort.
