George, rather than do it myself, I used a web language translation service.
Some of these terms are not a part of my Ecclesiastic Latin. Smile

I thought so... Smile

From my two years of torture back in high school, I thought some of the constructions were off, so I got on a Web translator:

http://www.tranexp.com:2000/Translate/result.shtml

and entered your phrases. Here's what came up as a translation:

to gather a to comb , any to comb
There is nowhere upon my to grow fat
No , not when hand , clean hand
God I want you when to place pertaining to a journey upon my zucachetto
statue this is a to gather together hollow

Oh, my. Smile again.

Me too.

I just went back and entered a few simple phrases in English and translated them into Spanish and German, and then back again. Whooo-eee!!!! This is better than TV!

George

If you want some fun, pick up X-Treme Latin: Unleash Your Inner Gladiator
I recently started working through the Harry Potter seies in Latin. Smile The first two have been translated for troubled people like me. Smile

I was a little duck earlier.

Did I say Prague?

I was there in 1993, I guess its changed somewhat since then, but there is plenty of atmosphere and architecture that for me epitomises Gothic.

Cesky Krumlov is a little Village in Bohemia that the river Vlatva flows through, pine forests and gothic castle, Egon Schiele lived there for a spell with his mother.

Salem. Late at night. The spot of the galos or perhaps the downtown area where many spirits lie.

I have been living in Bavaria for 3 years. I am 45 minutes from Nürnberg. Needless to say the entire inner-city is a wonderful place for one that enjoys the old world setting with gothic overtones. I visit there at least 2 or 3 times a month. (The Magic Ring I belong too is also close by the area there).

I have been to Vienna 2 times, the last time I actually performed at the palace Schoenbrunn where Empress Maria-Theresa resided. It was quite a rush to know I was doing spoon bend and haunted key effects in the same room Mozart performed for the Empress as a child. St. Stephan’s in Vienna has some spine-tingling catacombs. There are still deep pits where they simply dumped bodies during the plague. I cannot point out how many gems of the city I stumbled across by merely walking around and exploring. It’s especially rewarding at night, walking through the downtown area when everything is closed.

I found the same to be true of Salzburg, in Austria and Strasbourg in France. I did not have enough time to explore Paris when I was there, but the place reeks of gothic history. I definitely visited Notre Dame and some old back streets that reminded me of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Murders in the Rue Morgue”.

I am returning to the United States in 4 weeks but I am still hoping to visit Prague, as it is only a 2 hour drive from my home here.

I have a gothic-vintage style of performance so these places are an inspiration for me. When I perform formally, I wear period clothing reminiscent of the Victorian age. I had just done a photo-session Friday taking new promotional shots for my new website. I will post some here when I get them back. (Pictured below was my costume for a Halloween show I did some time ago – people were so petrified about my appearance, I got away with quite a bit of misdirection).

So, your either Nessy or my aunt Sally. Smile

That's not where I was going, but OK.

I was going to ask if the water is as cold as we've heard.

The only time anyone swims in the loch is when they swim across it for charity. It is very very cold. occasionally on really hot days you might find someone in there but you never really get hot days in inverness.
