    She, dancing a sultry Bolero
    bedazzles our member El Guero
    who deigns to inquire
    what She would desire
    and hears only one word "dinero"

    DANG! We got a real poet!

    I am no good at poetry, I can write, sometimes. But, rhyme is too much work for me.

    Great Limerick.

    There once was a girl from the Faroe's
    who smiled at a guy named El Guero
    He asked her to sail in his punt,
    with an oar in her...
    ....

    <you can fill in the rest>.

    In the style of items from..
    The Limerick, edited by G. Legman, copyright 1964, Bell Publishing Company, Library of Congress Catalog Number 74-78758.

    A proper reading for all who wish to partake in this form of art.

    edit: P.S. it has a Bibliography...FWIW, 50% of engineering is knowing where to look it up.

    A orillas del Río San Antonio, vive un tejano con nombre El Guero,

    Habla lo que está bien, No es como que se callara,

    y él escribe para arriba en la noche.

    :)

    Я говорю немного по-английски ....

    I just wish my Russian was as good as my Spanish, or Japanese, or Korean .... sometimes my German is even better than my Russian ....

    This language is harder than English! By at least 2 times. And unlike Japanese, or Korean, there is no 'basic' language you can learn and get by with - you have to learn it all, or you cannot communicate much.

    But, they love me, and that makes all the hard work worth it.

    How did you pick up French and Spanish - Every time I tried French, it got sucked back into my spanish?

    OK, I still have to go to translate.google.com ... And I know what the problem is: noun declension .... They break it down into Greek, or German, type 'simplicity.'

    And then, you find out about the exceptions .... There went any semblance of simple.

    Did I mention they report the news in Ukrainian where I live .... as if that would help me learn Russian ....
