Ooops! New word. What does it mean?  Helps to have it spelled 

ster·tor ( n. 
A heavy snoring sound in respiration.
[New Latin, from Latin stertere, to snore.] 
sterto·rous adj. 

Wow.  What a list. where else could I have learnt this?
Dan is a very funny guy.  Hope we meet some day (going to Port Washington in April?).
