    Paul333: Thanks again, you've been very helpful and given me new avenues to investigate.

    Thanks. I believe the inhabitants say hee-sham, but neither that or your version support my private theory (which I won’t bore you with).

    Paul333: excellent posts. The following is a question about some family research I’m doing . . . As a northern speaker, how do you pronounce the name of the town of Heysham, in Lancashire?

    “I’m glad I’m not young anymore!” - Maurice Chevalier in “Gigi”

    This sounds better in Latin, "ego sum ego sum laetus iam puer"

    There is a lot of good in what Julian achieved, and in what he tried to achieve. I too believe he is one of the great emperors, but much of his acclaim today seems, to me, to relate to his...

    I expect you're right. I think I understood, at some level, what randy meant at the time, but the hilarity, and the blushes, of the ladies seemed beyond the normal. It's similar to the word bloody. I...

    I was in Australia many years ago and the name of my buddy, Randy (short for Randolph), was the source of great amounts of laughter from the young ladies, When questioned,...

    This is an effect of our dictionary, Webster's. Mr. Webster wanted to simplify the spellings to create an American English so it's color, not colour, and parlor, not parlour. It's only in faux...

    Generally, I think nukes should be discounted. They are the weapon too terrible to use. They are a good asset for a small power, an Israel or North Korea, to have to...

    A strong economy is necessary to support an effective military, but more important is will. I think Britain and France have it, Germany does not. Their people, traumatized by two world wars and now...

    I suppose I have a relatively narrow viewpoint, as a tourist, where I noticed the same things as Maleth, above, and the other as a aviator in the US Navy. The Swedes are, from my long familiarity...

    /Southern Germany as closest continental link. Celts or Raetians?

    My maternal grandmother is a Dengler. While I wondered if this could be a name based on a trade, I couldn’t imagine dengling and making a living at it. However a German man told me that the...

    There are many sites which propose origins of surnames, but I expect most are just guesses. I believe there were Mauds and Maws recorded in England in the 13th century. Have you researched these?

    The problem with surnames is they often change over time, especially during periods of high illiteracy, and this obscures their origins. My surname is Hissem, a very rare name that I assumed was...

    Well, I was just 3 out of 20, so not so much. But really, dislike places that are too noisy? By definition you have to agree, it’s noisier than it ought to be. Object to illogical rules, who doesn’t?...

    I took course in college on writing survey questions and how to avoid biasing the answers. This test is frustrating because it steers you toward answers, often not the ones you want to make. How do...

    I saw Spartacus in the theater as a young boy (I sat in the front row craning my neck back to see the screen). I cried at the ending. Ben Hur was slow going for me, except for the galley and chariot...

    I vote New York City and its inhabitants as the rudest, at least compared with the rest of the US. I've never had problems with Parisians, but perhaps my expectations were low.

    I was always too cheap to take up smoking (do you know what those things cost per pack?) . . . but it's graffiti that galls me. What is the urge to trash someone else's house, building or a public...
