Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Excuse me for breaking in like this, but your comment made it imperative for me to share this little (true) story.  A park ranger, or whatever you call them in Wales, told us about the tattoo in Latin on his forearm.  He and some buddies had gotten drunk and then tattoed at a parlor in Thailand on their last night before leaving a tour of duty in Korea.  His tattoo was "Forever in Wales" inscribed in Latin.  About halfway through the process, the tattoo artist was suddenly moved to make small talk, asking "where did you come from?" to which the drunken soldier replied "Korea" which is now forever on his forearm as "Forever in Korea" in Latin.
