Topic: Coney Island's Dreamland Park Burns (1911)
Posted: Sunday, May 27, 2018 5:23:36 AM
There is a story of O.Henry where a shopping girl tells to her friends how her fiancee promised her to bring to the most exotic places on the Earth. She refused him because, as she said, he had promised to take her to Coney Island. Alas, he was a true millionaire and his promises were not fake.

In Lithuanian language, the right term for "bobbin" is recommended "ritė". The Lithuanian language commission does not appreciate "špūlė".

Topic: St. Brendan's Day

So how should I celebrate this day? Where? As a description of "today's holiday" this text is null and void.
Topic: be potty about (something)

The child becomes potty before defecation. So the illustration in video is wrong. The girl was potty about the book previously, but now she has got it.

Mhat are the origins of tame geese? From tame pterodactyl eggs, I presume :-)
