In that thread at SAR-L, they refer to something called "The Association for            Gravestone Studies" And so Googling that <a href="http://www.gravestonestudies.org/">we get this site</a> which states that "The Association for            Gravestone Studies (AGS) was founded in 1977 for the purpose of            furthering the study and preservation of gravestones."&nbsp; On that site they state : "Our professional conservators tell us it is                definitely not a good idea to use shaving cream on porous                gravestones".&nbsp; They don't mention any names or sources, so I have sent an email message to the site to ask who these professional conservators were and what their sources were.&nbsp; We'll see if I get any useful response.&nbsp; I have also left a voice mail at the phone number listed there.&nbsp; Their website states that their normal office hours are 9AM to 3PM Tuesday through Thursday, but the message says that "we temporarily do not have regular office hours".<br>

enquoted just like that, I get 168,000 results.&nbsp; If I add Gregg Bonner to it, <b>not enquoted</b>, I get seven results.&nbsp; If I instead change it to Grady Bonner, again <b>not enquoted </b>I get five results.<br>

If I use Google Scholar instead, <a href="http://scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=en&amp;q=%22solid+phase+and+solution+phase%22&amp;btnG=Search&amp;as_sdt=2000&amp;as_ylo=&amp;as_vis=0">I get 749 results for the enquoted string</a>, but only seven <a href="http://scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=en&amp;q=%22solid+phase+and+solution+phase%22+bonner&amp;btnG=Search&amp;as_sdt=2000&amp;as_ylo=&amp;as_vis=0">if I also add Bonner</a> to it.&nbsp; And it doesn't look, at first glance, as if any of these seven are actually him.&nbsp; If I use Google Books instead, <a href="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&amp;tbs=bks%3A1&amp;q=%22solid+phase+and+solution+phase%22&amp;aq=f&amp;aqi=&amp;aql=&amp;oq=&amp;gs_rfai=">I get 776 results for the enquoted string</a>, but if I add Bonner to it, <a href="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&amp;tbs=bks%3A1&amp;q=%22solid+phase+and+solution+phase%22+bonner&amp;aq=f&amp;aqi=&amp;aql=&amp;oq=&amp;gs_rfai=">I get only one, which isn't him.</a>&nbsp; It would then seem that although Grady Gregg Bonner is truly a chemist of some caliber, he can't be the world's leading expert on anything related to solid phase and solution phase... whatever.<br>
