On some level, perhaps.

But this is glurge that they didn't even want us to see. They wasted my time, and they don't even know me!

That's what makes glurge so evil, isn't it?

Comment: Here's the latest update:

Most things I look up, I go to "Search Engine" and
then type in a couple words describing what I'm trying
to check on; i.e, the North Pole jobbie I typed in "sunset at north pole". Sometimes if you only search on a word or two, several items may come up and you'll find the one of interest.
Sometimes it may say not found and maybe then search
on a different wording, etc.

Ok, keep in mind that I have only had high school spanish and I'm guessing on some of the words but I think this translates roughly to:

"This is a beautiful animal message (story, maybe?), but I don't believe that it benifits anyone to pass this story. Always read the stories on snopes.com before you take(plural form) the hair."

Take the hair?? What on earth is that supposed to mean? [Confused] [lol]

Tomen el pelo, take you by the hair, is the equivalent to pulling your leg.

Of course, if you tell someone in Spain that you're pulling them by the leg, they'll look at you just as strangely as when you're told that someone has got you by the hair.

My brother thought it was the most hilarious thing. And the look on confusion on people's faces when he would "take them by the leg" was priceless.

Ah, that makes sense. I wondered if it wasn't an idiom, but "pulling your leg" never occured to me.

Comment: Mike, I see this report. - I know, personnally, that in that
speech that I heard on the radio
the first time the part that hit home to me was "So help us God". Later I
saw a movie replay
of that speech and again "so help us God" was the rallying point for all
Americans.

Comment: HI YA KAREN,

HMMM, I WAS ON THE PHONE, AND WHEN I CLICKED IN YOU WERE GONE...SO I WENT BACK TO MY ORIGINAL CALL. SORRY....IT HAPPENS SOMETIMES.

MY BUDDY RAY WAS CALLING TO SEE HOW I WAS, AND WHAT WAS HAPPENING WITH ME. NOTHING........AS USUAL.........
HE WAS EXPLAINING ABOUT HIS CHIROPRACTIC VISIT, AND WHAT DRS HE HAD SCHEDULED TO SEE THIS WEEK. NOT ALL THAT IMPORTANT TO ME, BUT IMPORTANT TO HIM.

THEN, WHEN YOU CALLED THE SECOND TIME, I WAS TALKING WITH HILDA, AND IT'S HARD TO INTERUPT HER TO SAY A MIN. WHILE I SEE WHO IS ON THE OTHER CALL............AND I MISSED YOU AGAIN.

THEN JON, MY OTHER HAM RADIO BUDDY CALLED TO SAY HE WAS SICK... HAD DIARHHEA FOR SEVERAL DAYS, WENT TO THE HOSPITAL FOR EMERGENCY SERVICE, GOT PILLS, AND THE BRAT DIET.....BANANA, RICE, APPLE AND TOAST B R A T TO REMEMBER IT EASILY.
WE DISCUSSED THE FACT, THAT HE IS ON CHELATION MEDS......MAYBE THAT IS IRRITATING HIS DIGESTIVE SYSTERM........OR MAYBE IT'S THE WATER... THE PART HE LIVES IN IS EMPTY MOSTLY.....AND THE WATER SITS IN THE LINES AND IT MAY TURN BAD......FROM NO CIRCULATION ...HE SAYS NO, BUT I SAY YES.... ALL THAT WATER IS IN THE PIPES AND HIS SYSTEM IS ONE OF THE FEW THAT'S FLUSHING THRU.... AND IT'S ALL OLD OLD HOT WATER...THE CHLORINE EVAPORATES AFTER A PERIOD OF TIME....AND THE WATER SMELLS LIKE THE SWAMP. THAT'S FLORIDA WATER FOR YA.
I'VE BEEN DRINKING BOTTLED WATER FOR 20 YRS NOW......STARTED IN 1985 IN WINTER HAVEN, AND HAVE STAYED WITH IT SINCE THEN.

THE FIRST THING TO MAKE ME ILL IS THE WATER.... THE BACTERIA IN THE WATER IS DIFFERENT IN ALL PARTS OF THE COUNTRY... SO FROM FLA, TO ILLINOIS, TO CALIFORNIA TO OREGON AND BACK TO FLA....AGAIN.....I DRINK BOTTLED WATER. PREFER DISTILLED TOO. MAKES WONDERFUL COFFEE...AND THAT'S MOSTLY WHAT I DRINK.

LATER,
IZ
