It is hard to imagine that if the crown prince had survived he would have been made King!

Who was the monarch they locked up in a small cell and told him he could continue to be king of all he surveyed? Nay-pahl is the way I've heard it pronounced by Nay-pahl-eez!

dog woofs: Never heard the nipple pronunciation

Yeah, we can assume that. How about limiting your posts to something informative, and losing the signature line?

Thanks.

Both Max and Avy comment on the nipple-- but you singled out Jim- You have a valid complaint about the signature line-- but you came across as being rather harsh-- I don't think that was your intent.. but our young pup has been pretty well behaved as late-- I hate to see young people (and he is younger than Jazz-- maybe 9 or 10 grade) scared off. If he doesn't get a chance to hang out here-- how will he learn?

This confusion on the pronunciation of Nepal reminds me of "Stormin' Norman" Schwartzkopf's briefings during the Gulf War, when he pronounced Qatar as "Gutter".

BTW, Aenigma suggests "Schweitzer" for "Schwartzkopf". He should wish.
