Works like a charm!

Keep up the good work  Grin



PS: Are you dutch? I saw an expression earlier about 'giving the ghost' and became curious if it was also in other languages or if this gave your nationality away  Tongue

No, I'm American.  American phrases are borrowed from all over.

Fascinating. Wonder if it was copied in the times of "New Amsterdam" or if we (dutch persons) copied it from the "British" in the end.

Nevertheless, 3.1.5 is on the list, hope I can test it tonight for you Grin (busy week, something to do with Christmas)

LOL "Great minds think alike, fools seldom differ" (me [giving away my nationality: a little more south and east than you Wink] stumbled over the same phrase a few days, ago.

However: while looking it up I came to the surprising finding - yes it's really used that way.
Haha, you as well. It sounded always so typical Dutch to me that it never occurred to me EVER that it could be translated to other languages.


Saw also another reply in previous post that it occurred in the bible, might be the true origin in the end ( http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/155500.html ) ... bleh ^_^
