By the way Hadrian, could you teach me how to make a fishlet jumping like your magic sheep here, for the cod liver oil topic????
It would make everybody crazy!

Hi Carolyn,
We Italians use to say "Mamma mia!" -that means "My mother"- when something awful shows up or is reported to us.
Actually, in this particular case I was joking, 'cause I don't think this is an awful wild beast visiting Hadrian's neighbourhood...I would go for veggies...or other stuff.  I might be totally wrong.
By the way, how is your fish-oil-propelled kid doing?
Ciao

You probably use something like "Oh my God" in the same way.
So...is that an animal or a plant?

To me it could be something to eat...like one of the previous pics, before the antique weight-scaler.
I think they eat peculiar foods down there!

IKO, we use your term of Mamma Mia, the same way in my family, meaning "oh my goodness" or "for heavens sakes" or "aye yie yie" or "Lands  sakes alive"! "Oh my gawd" qualifies also, so for me, it means the same as your meaning! I got it, no mis interpretation.... YAAAAY! I did not misunderstand you this time YAAAAY! So Glad!! LOL

You know, I learned English from a book...
So I deserve more information about your persistent and ripetitive:
LOL, lol, every 5-10 words, in any size and colour available.
Does it , mean Lollypop? Left-over-light? Light-on-luxury?
Is all this lolling around a typical devastating sign of a chronic "lol syndrome"?  Is it contagious?
May be it means liver-oil-literature...and I would be deeply  concerned about it.
Any suggestion?
lots-of-love!

Hi Iko - I'm sorry, I didn't think about you not knowing about LOL.  Simply put, it is internet slang for Laugh Out Loud.  I don't know if you use google or not, but it can be a very useful tool.  Go to www.google.com and type in what you're looking for.  I use it on a daily basis.  Hope that was helpful to you.[:)]

Carolyn

p.s. - Thanks for asking about my fish-oil kid.  He's actually not taking it right now, the bottle I had was expired and the local store is out, but hopefully, he will start on it in the week or so.
