Yep, those are phrases I hear quite a lot in my house, and it's always, "Keri! Don't say that!" Haha. Well once again Peter, thanks for your help. I always look things up too but my Italian isn't that great so it's hard for me to search on Italian sites. Thanks again.

Try it since the brain is like other muscles in your body expands when in use. Peter
