    And I believe it. The Beatles and Stones and many other English musicians helped develop rock n' roll by listening to black Delta bluesmen and white rock n' rollers on records brought home from America by British sailors. So the circle's still unbroken. Cool. :)

    The KittenCat does the same thing. Last night when I came to bed (having taken the trouble to turn out the kitchen and living room lights and check her dish for food to sustain her through the night), she was lying smack dab in the middle of MY half of the bed. Tail fully stretched out.

    I said "Oh, thank you! You've been keeping it warm for me!"

    Uh-huh. Yeah. Right. Or I don't know, maybe she was. I keep the sofa warm for her, after all. ;)

    And in our case it's really sad because so many of our ancestors came from mainland Europe and yet within a generation or two most of their descendants could no longer speak their mother (and father) tongues.

    @Antje77 I love the poem! Thank you so much for going to all the trouble to post that. It made me laugh (and also read seriously slowly).

    That was one thing I loved about German -- it is spelled exactly as it sounds. French, on the other hand ... !

    And I won't even get into my frustration with trying to learn Greek!

    Did y'all know that in the first days of the US, Benjamin Franklin wanted our national language to be Hebrew? I have long wanted to learn Hebrew, but like Greek it would of course mean learning not only vocabulary but a whole different alphabet.

    Writing in response to cat and upload stuff from yesterday: 99.99% of my pics are on my (i)phone, so I do all that from it, as now. On my app view here, there is a + sign to the left of the response field. Touch that and it opens your draft in a new window, with some icons at the bottom. Camera icon lets you take a pic, and icon that may be a landscape gives you access to your own photos. Like so:

    Agree in general, but I'd think that particular song is more traditional folk or bluegrass than rock 'n' roll...

    And now I can't get it out of my head.

    You're right, it is. Country & western, bluegrass. I think I thought of it because as I was typing about the American blues and rock n' roll musicians I was thinking about how several of the latter had their roots in rockabilly -- country and western, bluegrass, and the influence of those genres on rock n' roll. :)

    I love it. I only hope @ofwhichsugars doesn't mind. At least he got some serious answers before we carried off in all directions :) And he was last seen on the forum the day he started this thread so I suppose it doesn't matter.
    His name suggests he came here only to get this question answered. But if he pops in again he'll have a surprise with 8 pages of answers to his question :hilarious: Hope he likes cats!
