    I agree with kïrstin – and was curious enough for a google-translation of the sentence – a harmless wish for another day growing, but maybe with these links (I won\’t try) they are equivocating … and if this was my place, I would not allow any stranger to post a bunch of links leading to whatever.

    As long as it is not offensive I\’ll leave it up. I just don\’t want anything offensive on here to my Chinese friends and without being able to decipher the characters I wouldn\’t know for sure. Chendd, it turns out, is a serial commentor but probably harmless.( I don\’t like the links either.) I know some Chinese but only phonetically and most of it is from ordering off of bilingual Chinese Restaurant menus and my trusty Chinese Cook Book ! Hope everybody liked the quotes anyway! Usually I take links off. There aren\’t very many up there. I probably won\’t try them either ! Kisses to every one !

    Hi Carolyn ! It\’s good to see you at my Live Space ! I hope you\’re feeling better now. I\’ve been praying for you. The French is for my many French friends who I visit but they often have to use a translator for most of my entries. Hope to see you here again soon! Keep well !
