    My 'no' was as in no, I did know the old meaning, but not the old English word.

    Oh ok. That clarifies things.

    If you watch from the beginning, the records are her's now, she's thumbing through them in her room; they appear a close family living in the same house; and being her grandmother recorded an LP record and handed it down to her granddaughter--whose going through a musical phase herself--I'd say 'The Song' runs in their blood... But yeah I would agree with you if they didn't setup the story how they did, I could easily see my grandmother kind of rejecting that duet. But then again my family isn't close, and I wouldn't attempt something like this when I was her age....which basically speaks to the wide spectrum of how close people are with their families.

    Expecting the average Englishman to know anything about the English language is like expecting a fish to know about water.

    The operative word here is "average."

    Jews believe in Christ, Muslims too, as a prophet they don't recognise christ as the son of the one true God they all believe in.


    Different interpretations from the same book of fairy tales.

    There wasn't anything subtle about the racism in Benjamin Frosts' comments.
