Linda, If you can e-mail me a copy of the 'conversation' in French I'll translate it for you. I was raised in France in my youth so it is almost a mother tongue.

Subject: [iris-photos] OT-HUMOR: Hot Line

Oh brother - I went googling to see if I could find a source of HOT LINE
and ran across a mention of it on a French website.  Got distracted by a
discussion on that website about dark tops, couldn't quite figure out
what they were saying, so popped it into altavista's babel fish, which
gave me a garbled translation that was pretty much unintelligible, but
thought I would share my chuckle for the afternoon - the famous iris
RIPPLING WATERS came out as RIPPLING TOILETS, which, according to the
garbled translation, "adds a calling card"....

Back to digging spaces for new irises....
