Hi John:

Is that anything like driving on the correct side of the road??  :))

I guess we lost a lot in the translation into English huh?  or maybe 
into Amurrikun as they say in Texas.

Or perhaps Ashes , Ashes is Ebonics,  if so it stated a long long time 
before they invented ebonics

I heard it that was in elementary school  and it is still taught that 
way in these parts to day.

   Tom Wiggins quoted an old English folk song :

"Ring around the rosies
pocket full of posies"

Which more correctly should read :

A pocketful of posies,
A-tishoo, a-tishoo,
We all fall down.

Just wanted to demonstrate that I am an unacknowledged expert in such
