|I have to chuckle to myself sometimes. I remember going to Catholic High School and one of the subjects that everyone had to take was Latin. I was a protestant in a Catholic school and I had no idea why on earth I had to learn Latin. It wasn't that difficult actually, since most words are spoken as spelled. The remembering was the hard part. Little did I know I was a blossoming gardener and as I got older I used the scientific names just as much as the common names. So I'm very used to reading and speaking the latin names, even though there are some that are real tongue twisters.|

|Lol .. indeed - it's almost an olympic feat saying some of the names.
