Re: godmother godfather....

Nice bit of editing there, Cricketman. As you can see, I made a point of not singling JLFS out as my rant was going off topic and it would have been unfair of me to bundle him in to a related rant.

Ahhhh, but it gets diluted eventually. For example, Mrs F has no mention of her maternal grandmother's name, and if we were to have children her mother's name would disappear too. Yet her father's...

Re: translation please.

I don't agree. The orignal Spanish phrase uses 'rain' to symbolise gloomy times, so its meaning is that even gloomy times have an end.

'Nothing lasts forever' can have both an optimistic and...
