I'm sure ALL of you (okay, maybe it's just dorky me) like to know where and when certain idiomatic phrases and words came into use. Sal: What's idio-whatsis mean? Johnny Fiama: I dunno, Sal. Sounds kinda sexy. Sam the Eagle: Out! Out of this thread! Ru: (ahem) Thank you, Sam. The best sight I've found for this is etymonline.come, and you can put in words of phrases to find out what they used to mean, or what they really mean, or why they mean what they mean. You get my drift. Also, when writing for Pepe, there are several good translation sites, so you don't have to bug your kids or friends for a Spanish textbook.
