The quote from Shakespeare is: Et tu, Brute?

Nominative Brutus, so plural is Bruti.

Brutae would imply feminine or eunich (neutral), which would make the nominative Bruta, or Brutum, neither of which are very good names.

I hope you contacted them from a disposable email address. They're both phishing scams. No name, no address, no phone number or email address for contact.

Molto Bene. It's hard, when I returned from living overseas, I dreamt in French. When I was in Switzerland this spring, it was hard to string a paragraph together. Hopefully, when I switch jobs, I can take better advantage of Boston's French Cultural Center....

Now back to your regular CL programming

Dang...that's a GREAT price on the touring. And the interior looks pretty good. It's odd, though...he's got a different face plate for his heating controls...wonder why that is (his birthday and mine are only a month apart).

Every time I see another touring, tho, it makes me think I overpaid on mine
