At least you were able to figure out the message. Are you going to start a google-to-english service?

  1. Using quotes enables phrase search and it makes the order of the terms important. Thus "rotten apple" would return posts with "rotten peach & apple" but will not return "the apple is rotten."

I had to play the .wav file to figure out what the guy was saying.
Scratchchin I'll bet a google-to-english service would be in demand, especially in certain parts of the country with heavy accents.

"Happiness and depression are both feelings, just like joy and anger. It's not feelings that give us problems. It's what we do with them that makes the difference."

"When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life."

That's kind of what I meant...the locals understand each other. We've been here about 4 1/2 years, and I still have a problem understanding most people that grew up here.


and you.... cultured? Roll
