Mensagem:  It's funny now looking back on what my English grammar teachers said and did. One of the first rules I was taught in English grammar classes is often broken. "The letter 'i' always comes before 'e', except after 'c', no exceptions" said my professor, to his heirs, hoisting his beige stein, being leisurely, and seizing the moment, before lifting the veil off the statue of some ancient deity, and going on to talk about Santa's eight reindeer. Just something light to help you guys get over the fact that Carnival is gone for another year, Tom
