      Thanks Amanda -- still hoping things work out well,
      sounds like Mike is giving it his all, "atta boy!"

      Keep those phrases coming, they are cool -- the Irish
      also have a couple funny ones . . .

      Two of my favorites:

      (1) little girl falls down -- her grandparent tells
      her, "Don't worry, you'll be alright by the time you
      get married." and

      (2) you use a complicated multi-syllabled word and the
      Irish will ask you "what's that with it's feet up?"
      Meaning, speak English, stop talking in scientific
      terms!

      ;-D
