I know on this thread I will just sit back and enjoy. You are both too good for me. I guess I knew about Popov but did not make the connection and as for the valid Latin sentence, I did not see the sentence in the column form: Sator arepo tenet opera rotas. But I do now. I am borrowing sluggo's term...

I agree, may it be a goodly time from now.

I am sort of lost concerning the "valid Latin sentence" and
the Popov. Maybe by brain has become snowbound.
Enlighten me.

Sounds good to me, feel free to "slap my hands" if I
wander. I get excited and tend to stray. So I will
visit your new thread. Thanks.

Interesting opinions both ways. This really is fascinating. Route is definitely "rout" here, especially in postal RFD's, though they are now "streets" as in 732nd Street in some far-out county halfway to the Pacific Ocean. Your comment about 'soft-midwestern' sort of augments wha...

True, and there is another use for camera
regarding chamber which slips me now. I need do
some research (Perhaps some European legislature??)

Hey, I am very appreciative. I put it on my wish list. It is not the same as the movie, I mentioned. The movie with Gene Wilder is decades old, and there is another with Joseph McManners done recently (he is 17 yrs. now), but I cannot find it except on YouTube. Thanks, I will be getting this CD.

I need the sheep for the wool: warmth. It is going below zero tonight, again and again. I love the Little Prince. Used the French version years ago in 2nd year French which I used to teach. I don't know if I've ever seen the 'opera". Is that the same as the movie with Richard Kiley and Gene Wil...

Old postings. But I am learning things. I won't question expecting an answer, but I'll bet the Old Site was YourDictionar:Word of the Day. I recognize names here that were in older threads there. I guess I am a refugee here from that same site, as it is now defunct, and I've found 'safe haven' here,...

The conversation reminds me of Haiti. I've visited there,
and it is deep, grinding poverty. Memories I wish I could
forget, but probably better that I don't.

This thread pleases me very much. I feel very welcome.
And a "learner" still, even as a retired high school teacher.
Thanks for all the help everyone gave me today.

That was my first impression as well, turning the
word 'camera' into a verb. Interesting word, though.

Stop, murder us not, tonsured rumpots. I did not see the 'not' the first time. Palindrome, wow you impress me. I bow in deference to your panjandrumic ability. You must post more palindromes. I like them too. But don't know many. Had a friend whose last name was one, Noxon, but that is about it.

Hey, I appreciate it. I know it says enter URL to post avatar. I think that is an address of some sort, but I don't know what to use. Perhaps Google images???? Thanks for trying. I am not too interested in posting pictures, once in awhile it came up, on the site I came from, when we were discussing ...
