For the third time in as many weeks, we have snow. Luckily not as much in this area as further north, where there are 15 foot snowdrifts in Cumbria, North West UK.
Do you like my hat!

Rain

I opened my eyes
And looked up at the rain,
And it dripped in my head
And flowed into my brain,
And all that I hear as I lie in my bed
Is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.

I step very softly,
I walk very slow,
I can't do a handstand--
I might overflow,
So pardon the wild crazy thing I just said--
I'm just not the same since there's rain in my head.

Shel Silverstein


Pluie

J'ai ouvert mes yeux
Et regarda vers le haut à la pluie,
Et elle coulait dans ma tête
Et coulait dans mon cerveau,
Et tout ce que j'entends que je mens dans mon lit
Est le slishity-le ballottement de la pluie dans ma tête.

J'ai pas tout doucement,
Je marche très lentement,
Je ne suis pas un appui renversé--
Je pourrais le trop-plein,
Pardonnez donc la chose sauvage folle, que j'ai juste dit--
Je ne suis pas la même chose car il y a pluie dans ma tête.

Pluie

La pluie pleut tout autour,
Il tombe sur des champs et des arbres,
Il pleut sur les parapluies ici,
Et sur les navires en mer.

The clouds are back and it looks like rain may be here instead of the sun. We have received almost an inch of rain the last week or so. Very welcome rain! Hope we get some more...the car can wait. I got caught with the top down in a sudden downpour recently and had to suddenly pull over, put the top up, before the car and moi got soaked!! lol I thought of your friend with the MG Midget.

I have to write in English, as I am outraged!!!lol

That link you posted must have been written by an American!! It was definitely not written by Brit!

Many are correct, but others are glaringly wrong. They have used slang words, not used in polite society and are actually offensive to a "lady" lol :)

For instance -

Number 10 - a kiss is a kiss - snog is slang for a "not pleasant" kiss, forced on you by an unwanted suitor!

Number 12 - it is actually spelt wrong too... knickers is an old fashioned word.

It comes from a novel called "The History of New York" by Diedrich Knickerbocker, supposedly a Dutchman living in New York. In Britain the illustrations for the book showed a Dutchman wearing long, loose fitting garments on his lower body. When men wore loose trousers for sport they were sometimes called knickerbockers. However women's underwear were soon called knickerbockers too. In the late 19th century the word was shortened to knickers"

Today we say pants or underwear, you never hear anyone refer to them as "knickers" anymore

Number 23 - quid - is actually not 'money' at all... it is the slang term for ONE POUND. Money is money or we say "cash".

Number 27 - bog roll is a slang term, never heard in 'nice' homes! lol
We call it toilet paper or probably loo-roll as the term for a toilet has become acceptably known as 'a loo'....


"It is thought to be derived from the trade name 'Waterloo', which appeared on the iron cisterns in many British outhouses during the early 20th century."


I could pull holes in other terms..... eg. we call sweaters - sweaters, as well as jumpers ... post is only the term applied to the "Post office or post box", we say mail for everything else...


OK, finished now! lol

Vous êtes les bienvenus et je suis heureux, le chat a apporté un sourire pour vous.

Merci. Oui, le dimanche des rameaux était notre préféré lorsque nous étions enfants. Nous avons aimé regarder le prêtre et le garçons d'autel viennent dans l'allée avec les feuilles de palmier:)

(I do the same thing...sometimes gets lost in translation, lol. And yes, the cat was actually stealing the car or making a get away of some sort on the "The Streets of San Francisco"!!)

Merci de poster ma photo jonquille dans votre blog, trop !
Avoir un paisible dimanche... c'est le dimanche des rameaux, j'ai toujours aimé cette histoire comme un enfant:-)


(I always copy the translation back to see if it makes sense. I wrote, I love the cat 'driving' the car...the French translates as the cat 'stealing' the car!! I suppose he might have done! )

Un occupé Royaume Bonjour ensoleillé et chaud !

Selon le docteur sage des conditions météorologiques, Dr Masters, le jet est coincé une fois de plus et plus de façon extrême, a-t-il expliqué. Vous âmes malheureuses dans les climats du Nord devez continuer à faire l'expérience de plus de glace. Cela a causé grand embarras pour le rongeur américain qui prédit la météo qui a été dit.

Je vais bien merci. J'ai apprécié une journée à la plage après le dentiste. La température de l'air est 27.2222 C et la température de l'eau est 24.4444 c. J'ai nagé sur un quart de mile, et aussi beaucoup apprécié la vue d'une baleine, déversant sa douve hors de l'eau et le saut. C'était une journée magnifique... même le voyage chez le dentiste c'était amusant. J'ai eu ma nouvelle couronne placée. Il est monté comme un gant !

Sandi, De pluie forme Milton Keynes me rappellent une sérigraphie Andy Warhol :)

Père de G est aussi adopté. Une adoption compliqué la recherche de l'histoire.


Bug, J'ai beaucoup aimé The King's Speech et Girl with a Pearl Earring. Qui, ce dernier film avait la bonne ambiance. ' Jeune fille une Pearl'is une belle peinture. Ils appellent cela le 'Dutch Mona Lisa'.

You have really got far back with your ancestors, haven't you ? Très bien !

That is about the time ma grandmère got with her French Catholic ancestors who settled on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. At the beginning of the age of the internet I use to look at the ship's passenger lists that were online to do research for the Irish relatives who went to Boston and Australia. I guess now it is much easier with Ancestry.com. Ma mère also found information at the Family History Library Salt Lake City, Utah
