Greetings All,

Am posting this here and at the TV programmes thread for future cross-referencing purposes*. Just saw interesting documentary called Naturalmente on La 2 RTVE A la carta: Naturalmente. OK, so the source was the Centro Tecnológico Forestal de Cataluña, so as Simon insinuates, maybe it has to be taken with a pinch of salt (Sp. anyone?). No, but seriously, it did feature a 2-min. interview with my favourite Sp. nature chappie, Joaquín Araujo.

*No, Simon. Not cross purposes

How unkind of you Professor TP - I've never met an angry porpoise in my life! They are the bhuddist monks of the Cetacean community.

PS while we're om the subject;
"verb [ intrans. ] move through the water like a porpoise, alternately rising above it and submerging : the boat began to porpoise badly." - which I think describes Piqué's dancing ability quite adequately!

PPS more:
 
ORIGIN Middle English : from Old French porpois, based on Latin porcus ‘pig’ + piscis ‘fish,’ rendering earlier porcus marinus ‘sea hog.’

A sort of PPPS: it's easy to forget how much good music there is out there - or perhaps was! this is for you P - whether you like it or not!

Enjoy

Greetings Simon,
Although it forces me to stay (stray?) off topic, I graciously accept yer peace offering - only 'cos it happens to be one of me all-time favourites, on a par with "Steamroller Blues" with that great "I'm a churnin' urn of burnin' funk." (Sp. anyone?) :dancing:

Thanx.
