Quand les chemins ont des oreilles

"When the ways have ears"

Yesterday I was sharing with you how I was exploring the Stores and Classifieds menu here at the Longears Mall. I clicked on Stores and thought to myself, "This is like Christmas. Where shall I go today? Organizations. That looks like a good one!"

And so I clicked on Organizations.

Scanning down through the listings of organizations my eyes stopped at the listing for Ânes & Randonnées. That is the cutest logo!

This is a really neat website! They advertise that they have "All what you need to know about donkey trekking and a choice of beautiful photos."

I'm also impressed by any website that takes the time to provide visitors with three different languages. We have it easy here in the United States where we often act like the whole world should learn English.

I was fascinated by the "Quand les chemins ont des oreilles" displayed under their name, and so I pulled up Google's cool Language Translator and typed in "Quand les chemins ont des oreilles" to find out what it means in English.

It told me "When the ways have ears". Notice that I can also feed it complete web page URLs and it will translate them for me.

Fortunately for me, Ânes & Randonnées has an English language choice.

Be sure to check out their photos. Donkey trekking looks like a lot of fun!

(Note: If the content text seems small when you visit this web site, try setting your video display to 800 x 600 pixels. That is the number of color dots across your computer's monitor. I was running 1152 x 864 pixels, and the content text displayed quite small. Since the web page's internal type sizes are set in pixels even "View | Text Size | Largest" in my Internet Explorer menu didn't make it larger. Netscape Navigator's "View | Text Zoom", on the other hand, did make it larger.)
