    "Got to have a Jones for this Jones for that
    This running with the Joneses boy
    Just ain´t where it´s at
    You gonna come back around
    To the sad sad truth the dirty lowdown"

When Boz Scaggs <http://www.bozscaggs.com/> had his big hit, "Lowdown" 
in 1976 -- that's when the "jonesin'" meme went mainstream on my 
timeline.  I used to play that tune almost every night.  I worked 6 
nights a week back then.  But most of the lyrics had faded from my mind. 
 Now I can refresh my mind with a few keystrokes!  I can renew old joys 
and easily access new joys.  I'll need at least 500 more years to slake 
this jones.  -- Thomas
