              A cockle is a type of edible mollusc (they look and smell revolting, so why anyone'd eat them, I don't know).

              The expression about the cockles of one's heart being warmed is explained here - http://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-coc2.htm

              Most people only use it facetiously nowadays.

              Hope this helps, BeeBee.

                Well, Karen, I don't know whether to thank you or not, now that I have snails and clams in my heart. It's always interesting to learn the origin of idioms and amazing that we still use some of them when the original meaning is has disappeared from our lives.

                  I love that last picture Shannon. She is such a beautiful girl. You can see the love and mischief just jumping right out of those eyes....

                  Ahhhh I dont mean to scare ya but I think the boys are gonna come knocking in a few years.....LOL

                  Believe it or not I feel the same way about letting go. I think that is why we have to put up with all the teen stuff. I have had to really work on letting her handle things and not jump into every little problem she brings to me. That is the hardest part. I hate for her to have to experience defeat/heartache but we dont learn unless we experience them ourselves....

                    BeeBee, how old is your teenager?

                    Sounds like me, you, and Betheny need to start planning that club med vacation.

                    Mine just turned 18 last month...I am supposed to let her do as she pleases but offer a solution to every problem that arrises whether self created or just plain stupidity created. I was hoping to wake up on October 25 and find a responsible adult but alas my balloon was busted rather quickly....She still has some growing up to do....18 is really just a number. LOL

                      Good job! I mean, when kids bust out with these gems, it often means that your investment in time and effort (love) is working! Keep it up.

                        Ain't that the truth! Although there are days we yearn to be harrassed again, for a few hours anyhow?

                        Shannon, she is sooo cute! Beautiful child inside and out. Is it just me or does anyone else agree she resembles a lil actress- not good with names here...hmmm, will have to call my sis.

                          Dakota Fanning perhaps?
                          Do not live your life in fear of your own government because the moment that you do, is the moment they rule you.

                            Yep, Dakota Fanning. A lot of people say that.

                            Thanks everyone! I'm very proud of her!

                              Beebee is certainly a dues-paying member of the Club Med Rewards Club. Which is to say she's paid her dues by raising one of "those" kids-the ones that give hugs, gray hairs and sleepless nights.

                                Yes, that's who she reminded me of! Adorable.
