So now “gift” is a verb (versus “give”). What is going on with English over there, turning noun forms into verbs, especially when there are pre-existing verbal forms? Even “trial” has morphed into a verb (versus “try”).

I’m not Catholic... but I like this Pope. I wish we had some salt of the earth, humble leaders in this country.

Actually, the verb is “gives,” but only to the literate, I suppose.

I used to have a Forest Green Renault IV in Bogota

manual shift came out of dash

decent car actually for what it was

better than a Lada or Fiat or Range (God forbid)

My buddy had a Renault in college and he had to turn the radiator fan on with a toggle switch he installed when the engine started to overheat. Thermostats kept failing and he gave up replacing them.
