Indeed, this helps quite a lot, actually. Thank you very much! (What an unusual language, so far ...)

Wow ... these are all great suggestions!

Thanks, everybody!! I wonder how these things are pronounced? Although, typing them into an e-mail, I'm safe enough to not have to pronounce them ... for a time, anyway.

I'm not finding Gaelic a very easy language to learn - but I'm trying! :)

So ... I was wondering ...

I've recently learned I'm going to become a grandmother - (ackk!!) My daughter lives far away, and so we're communicating via e-mail most of the time ... and in discussing the imminent birth, we keep saying "the baby" all the time. It's occurred to me that there is probably a more meaningful and som...

How unforgivably selfish of me - of COURSE you get one back! :priob: That was uncharacteristically thoughtless of me, and I do apologize ... I shall strive to never be so careless again.

Do you forgive me - one more time? :?:

Oh, that helps me so much ... thank you for the hug! The single most effective therapeutic agent known to humankind, don't you think?

I'm feeling much better now - I'm special again. :P

... so I'm not ... special? See - and I was starting to feel exceptional, and now I'm back to being ordinary again. I blame it all on YouTube ... stupid YouTube geeks! I may need therapy now...

Well, now I'm really confused - because she didn't invite me to watch it. I'd never even heard of her before. So that's quite strange - and yet another mystery to ponder in my life!

Hmmmm .....

No kidding? I'm not a YouTube member ... didn't even know you were supposed to be, in order to watch their videos. I just went there and clicked on the arrow and she started singing. Maybe it has more to do with your security settings? I dunno - I'm certainly no whiz when it comes to knowing such th...

Hmmm ... strange that you couldn't see it. I actually watched it, and thought it was really great. Then I watched several more videos of hers ... and before I knew it, I was watching dozens of videos from all sorts of Celtic singers. Nice way to spend a couple of hours - I didn't even notice how muc...

Yes, I bet I'll discover that ... once I learn what all the phonetic sounds are. That still startles me a bit, but I'm beginning to already get used to it.

It'll certainly be mind expanding, even if I don't become a first-class conversationalist. At least I'll connect with my heritage a little bit.

Wow ... :mc: I only have a slight clue what you folks are debating, but it sure is fun to watch from the sidelines ... I know that seeing the words and how they're spelled has absolutely NO bearing on how they're pronounced, so it's quite fascinating for me to attempt to sound out those words you us...

But it was at 4 right after I posted it - honest!
Although, like many women, I usually have more to say! No telling where that number will be, soon enough!

Hello to all ... thank you for the welcome(s). This is going to be a very interesting adventure, I'm sure. But still overwhelming. It will take me some time to figure out how best to navigate and participate, and so I greatly appreciate your kind words.

Best wishes to each of you ......
