    You are welcome girls!
    Lithuanian is pretty difficult language. Many people think that it's similar to russian but it's not so similar!

    I think our own language of English is weird at times. I can't believe how many accents there are. And if you aren't from a certain place in southern United States(such as Oklahoma), even though you are an American citizen, they call you a "foreigner." But southerners seem friendly because they wave at you when you drive past their houses. In most of the United States, a milkshake is a milkshake. In Maine, a milkshake used to be called a frappe (pronounced frap). A sub in one state is a hoagie or an Italian sandwich in another. A drinking fountain is sometimes a bubbler. A soft drink might be a soda. But a soda might be a soft drink with ice cream in it. In New England things might be "wicked good" instead of "very good." In the south potatoes are "taters." Now if you go to another English speaking country, there are even more differences. And even though I enjoy hearing different accents, sometimes I don't understand what was said! It's embarrasssing to not understand English when it's your native language.

    and crown him Lord of all."

    I would have thought so too. I expected people in Lithuania to use the Cyrillic alphabet, but I see that you don't. Very interesting.
