    At least in talking to yourself you'd get an intelligent answer

      I don't know about that. I realise I chose the wrong word, the word for admiring oneself is something like OPEDIOUS, the name of a Greek god who spent all day looking at his own reflection in water. Perhaps some scholar can help us? GeeCee

        Graham, are you thinking of Oedipus, the character who married his mother?

        Narcissus, on the other hand, was well known for his beauty. He was a hunter who fell in love with his own reflection. So you were right the first time.
        Carpe diem!

              They got turned off in the move, just go to your profile and it should be there to turn on. If not it will have to be written again

                Both Nomad Sue and Kernowjon are right, it obviously doesn't do for me to have second thoughts about something. I agree about the classical education, but who wants to go hunting and then marry his mother? GeeCee

                  Thank you. I hadn't noticed that! BTW you need a space in yours: vincit omnia. Vincit means 'conquers', and omnia means 'all' . A great signature!

                  Oops, nobody likes a smartie pants! LOL

                    I like smarty pants - an editor is always useful - It will be fixed - Not hiding it so people can see my error Amor vincitomnia et nos cedamus amori

                      You are teasing me though I admit I had to check the word order myself.

                      “Amor vincit omnia, et nos cedamus amori.
                      Love conquers all things, so we too shall yield to love.”

                        I nearly called one of our cats Eadie (Eadie-puss) but decided if you have to explain the joke it's probably not worth it

                          It would be a ferocious cat- isn't an Eadiepuss Rex a giant dinosaur? It would probably run round the neighbourhood devouring other cats and small dogs.
                          The trouble with a hotel is that it tends to stay in one place.
