Leo, did you mean that last sentence above, or did you mean to say
"They have a few very useful things there"? Just as a point of
English, the two sentences carry opposite implications. What you said
implies the list is not useful. Insertion of "a" implies it is
The schema is:
They have a few very useful things
They have many very useful things
They have few very useful things
They have not many very useful things
Excuse me hijacking the thread to give an English lesson!
