It's Buenos Días, just for future reference. Día is an exception to the rule of of Spanish nouns ending in "a" being feminine and nouns ending in "o" being masculine. It is el día and not la día, and therefore it takes a masculine adjective.

That's wild about the lake, Dean.

Also don't think your #2 is correct. I could not have been more surprised at your answer, so I looked it up - fear of drafts is anemophobia; fear of air travel is aerophobia or aviophobia. I will continue answering heights for acrophobia.

Ok Juju -I just read the trivia answers from the quiz re fear of air travel and I thrown out that quiz . Yes re the lake I was on Manitoulian island as a kid when we came back from Sudbury to come to our place up north. My Mom went to take the ferry one time got to the diock after 20 minute drive from the highway and it had become too windy for the ferry to operate so she and her brother had to go the long way around




OG -love you nbr 2 answer -which park -hmm

Surgery went well -just a tiny bit of a problem with my vertigo -held onto my pant waist
I will post tomorrow -not wearing glasses after always all my life practically except to read the fine print , just a bit tired though I did sleep for a couple of hours this afternoon

Dean, you may see like an eagle tomorrow. My vision two years post-cataract surgery could be more fine-tuned with glasses, but it is still a thrill not to have to wear them all the time. I do now need reading glasses for very fine print or for doing much reading, but I have not yet been tempted to go get glasses.

The most striking thing to me was seeing the color of things that I know to be white and that afterward were really bright white. When I had one eye done, and one eye left to go, I kept sneaking looks out of the undone eye and comparing the difference. Bigdog did not experience it to near the same degree as me.

Yes. Has that now changed? I haven't noticed, and I used to know the reason why, but don't know what changed, IF it has changed.

May not have time to play tonight, so don't wait on me.

Why Do Ships Register In Liberia?
(FORTUNE Magazine)
By Reed Tucker
June 11, 2001
(FORTUNE Magazine) – We're fine with wearing clothes made in China, drinking wine from Chile, and watching movies shot in Toronto. But one piece of international cross-pollination baffles us. Why are so many cruise ships registered in Liberia?

Look closely at the fine print on any cruise brochure, and you're likely to find mention of Liberia, located on the northwest coast of Africa. Ships register overseas to save boatloads of money on labor, says one cruise official, speaking on the condition of anonymity. For a ship to fly the Stars and Stripes it must be owned and crewed by Americans, making it subject to U.S. labor laws, including the minimum wage. American ships also must hire from costly labor unions.

So why Liberia specifically? Because the Liberian ship registry--set up by U.S. shippers after World War II--is cheaper than nearly any other in the world, says Mohamedu Jones, a Liberian and U.S. maritime lawyer. Liberia, founded by freed American slaves, has always enjoyed a close trading relationship with the U.S.

Today its merchant marine is one of the world's largest. Liberia's ensign rivals even Panama's among so-called flags of convenience. Goodness knows, that's the most American of virtues.
