Welcome to CFI Forum, Nathalia.  Glad to have you here.  I think there is at least one other Brazilian here, but I’m not sure.

Your signature line: “No creo en brujas, pero que las hay, las hay.”  Does that translate to “I don’t believe in witches, but they are what they are”?  Also, isn’t that Spanish, rather than Portuguese?

I believe Portuguese and Spanish, while both Romance languages, are definitely separate.  However, one who speaks one of the languages can usually understand most of another.  For example, I was surprised as a kid, when we went to Mexico, and my mother, who spoke French fluently, had no problem communcating with those who were speaking Spanish.

Anyway, welcome Nathalia.  I’m looking forward to your ideas in the various forums here.

Welcome Nathalia. We could use some younger ideas around here. Look forward to your posts.

Hey just because I am old doesn’t mean that some of my ideas can’t be relatively young.  But I agree that greater age diversity on the forum would be nice.

I also think having different approaches to our discussions from people from countries outside the U.S., and more views from women can make the forum more diverse and challenging.  Welcome again, Nathalia.

I imagine that your idealized vision of me is preferable to what Skype would reveal.

Scrimshaw.  So are you an artist or an artisan?

Nope, just a a scribbler. I recreate the patterns from original teeth from the 1820’s to the 1860’s with my own twist. I use the same method the sailors used and etch in the design, then fill it in with ink. They brushed off the excess with sharkskin but I use a light sandpaper and steel wool. I also use original line drawings from 18th books. I just do it for kicks and giggles and it’s historic. Keeps my mind occupied too! I like detail. BTW the oldest tooth (sperm whale) found is on display in the Peabody-Essex museum in Salem, Mass. I took a lot of pictures!

Yep, it’s Spanish. I like this phrase so much. In fact it means something like this you’ve wrote, but i don’t think if it’s the same. In portuguese, we say “Eu não acredito em bruxas, mas que elas existem, existem.”
