    I was just idly chatting with my mother the other day and we started on meaning of names etc.

    Imagine my concern and horror when she kindly informed me the name Rachel means EWE !!!!

    Did they know that my vibrato would resemble that of a distressed mother sheep? Or are they being cruel!

    ...indeed he is, apparently...
