I figured they were. I hope those translaters do a better job with spanish them German. I have translated German to English and you can come up with some funky stuff. The translators are generally word translators not grammer. Grammer can be so different that some things make no sense, or mean something different entirely.

Actually, JB, that's what makes learning an udder language so difficult. In Spanish, for instance, the subject is at the end of the sentence. Bout when ya think ya have a handle on it, ya cuss somebody out !! THAT ain't fun, specially when he's holding one of them 24 inch butcher blades !!!!  :D :D :D

 Tom, everyone down here calls it Fl holly. Might be a "name" thing, like grouping together several oaks as "red" oak ???

Ah yes,  Brazilian Pepper.  We always called it a Pepper tree and it will take over the world given a little opening.  One of the worse imported plants ever to enter Florida.  It has been banned from being sold but its fruit is love by birds and spread far and wide.  The wood is useless, it makes thickets and is just generally a nuisance. I've climbed in a many a one of them.

Well if you want my opinion, I think Harold's hat and Harold himself are both quite a curiosity in any language :D

The problem with different meanings in a strange language reminds me of my wild college days.

My best friends were Argintines-----they taught me to talk naughty in Spanish but were very little help otherwise in the linguistic department.

One time my best friend's little brother came to Iowa State for a visit and a group of South Americans took him to a Go-Go Bar in celebration.  They invited me as well although they should have known I wasn't into that type of entertainment.  The little brother had had a couple of drinks and was slouched back in his chair with a smile on his face and his eyes wide open observing the go-go dancer.  Of course I was paying little heed to the stage but ,  being of a more serious nature, was trying to develop my Spanish skills.  I described the picture of Daniel (the little brother) in my best Spanish.  The group burst out laughing followed by a bunch of jabbering.  They finally decided I described Daniel well no matter if I called him a hombre felis (happy guy) or a hambre felix (hungry cat). :o
