Hey, it snowed here yesterday an INCH! Just beautiful! and today it's a chilling 24 degrees. But I think the more northerly those of you would scoff at that, and tell me to stop looking out the window at all the birds that mobbed the feeders, and get back to work!

I have a recipe for a great suet, if anyone wants it (contact me off-list).

Best of the Season to you All!
Linda

Often I have quite a few words for snow myself, but they can't be repeated
in polite company.

My apology: I should have cited authority instead of just making a  
statement about languages. One delightful book about word myths is  
WORD MYTHS, by Wilton.  joan

Hi Joan,

Wow! Now I really don't understand it anymore ;-).

Problem is that I have to sit down and listen to the commercial very
carefully to be able to translate it. I will do that before the end of  
the
year, I promise, but most of my time right now is occupied by a  
gorgeous boy
;-).

The commercial as a whole is derived from the saying that Inuit have  
more
than a 100 words for snow..  So.. the Dutch of course have more than a  
100
words for wind ;-).

For now: again, I wish you all great Christmas days!

Mieke,
The tour guide clip, quite apart from the sense of it,
my ear heard this:
_______________

??? they're very famous for the windmills.
They mill the grain, they mill the mustard.
So those mills have not laid as "Windex."

Frikadel is Dutch tour, but they're nicer.
But if you still want some cheese
Just take my advisement.

  (????Woman talking rapidly)
I don't know what she's saying but I know he gets away from the front.

I think that you think
they're smelling our linament.
(?????)
And of you have a lot of money over (I already figured out this one)
