Not many people know this - the double l is pronounced Y so it's a yama; from the Spanish, who came upon them in their New World conquests.

This is an Aberdeen Angus Bull, which is a nice Scottish Breed.
Tasty too.


This is a Llama, which is a Peruvian Pack animal. No mutants here??

Aaron was just a musical hack - couldn't even come up with his own tunes needed to plagiarize the countryside for his musical melodies.

And Copeland used all of them before he finished his intermediate composition lessons. Of course these tunes came most from the English and Scotish settlers in the Appalachians. Not very bright these people - could have done much better for themselves.
