  11. The absurd illogic of October's, November's and December's real meanings always makes me thing of Douglas Adams' wacky Hitchhiker's Guide trilogy with 5 books.

  17. Yes, "octo" is "ocho" in Spanish. They are very similar and this is why I understood October was the eighth month of the roman calender. Kisses:)
