I got it, Jackie, but question its veracity. It's a different language group.

Still working on Connie's.

I thought they were from the same branch of the original sweetmeat. After all, the ancient Persians also had daivas and daimyas, except that the good and evil fellers were the other way around.

I know I should just keep the thing until the next week so I can see what the answers are - and understand how it works
