Philip- Back in the day, right after dinosaurs were no more, everyone learned Latin. It was required in private and public schools. In Junior year I transferred schools and French was offered. I loved it. Took it four years, visited Quebec, and eventually France. But no body anywhere uses it around ...

Re: Close

Thanks, Doc.
I also remember how classmates used the term
"that's close" when expressing 'disbelief' to something

or southeast asian language. "Gargle"(I like that) is not any

Re: Partisan

They call themselves 'senators' but in reality are a House of Representatives elected by district on population basis. The State eliminated its Senate decades ago. So the Democrat and Rep...

It would appear from Mark 14: 12ff, that Jesus had it all
