If you come in my cage I'll eat you too!

Abu's claims in the comment on the post below.

Abu claims that the lehem in Bethlehem comes from the Aarbic for meat. He is, I believe, only partially correct or even historically incorrect.

Bethlehem is a Hebrew word and is the name used in the Bible. Today's residents use the Arabic name Beit Lachem. Beth and Beit mean house. Lachem refers to meat. Lehem refers to bread. Hence the meaning House of Bread or House of Meat.

Okay, I am humble enough to accept that my cousins are using different words AND that Miss C has kindly educated me. Ahhh, I am always learning. May you be blessed with a thousand red rubies and one hundred Devil Dogs!

One hundred Devil Dogs are a curse not a blessing! A positive plague of biblical proportions. If Devil dog was ten punds heavier he would be illegal.
