    A sacred cow also makes a great burger. Don't piously hold your ideals as above others ideals
    If you throw a rock into a pack of dogs the one that yelps is the one you hit. means if someone gets testy over something you said you probably hit a nerve in them with what you said, possibly tied into the next saying.
    Can't spot it unless you've got it. Means it's easier to see the flaws in others that have in yourself.

    Here is one of our sayings which always made me think:

    " playing devil's advocate" What do you think is meant by that?

    there is a old western saying

    a man saddles his own horses & kills his own rattle snakes..

    that basically means you have to take care of business yourself and not have someone else do them for you ..

    wash you face and hands before sitting down to a stanger table

    allways be loyal to your family and friends and the brand you ride for and be ready to defend them with you life if it need

    never ride another man horse that about as bad as sleeping with his wife .

    do no cuss around women and childern save that for the cows and the horse and the land that breaks you back out on the range

    allways say hello the camp at night when comeing into a stangers camp fire ..it polite way of telling someone your walking into there camp and it just like home with way of knocking on a door before entering

    Well, here's a couple of my favourite Scottish ones for you Marie (to be pronounced in a broad Scottish accent of course)

    Lang may yer lum reek (live long and prosper, as Spock would say)
    Mony a mickle maks a muckle (a small saving soon grows larger)
    Keep the heid (stay calm)
    Haud yer wheesht (shut up)
    It's a dreich day (cold, wet, and windy outside - most days in Scotland)
    Whit's fur ye'll no go by ye (what's meant to be will be)

    LOVE IT! I can hear your accent in my head, Leigh. Last night we had Colin on Skype from San Francisco and his accent is to die for!

    I love accents!
