World Phrases

Today I created a new folder for my e-mail.  It is called Spamily.  It is used for spam forwarded by any family members.

Do you know what a palindrome is?  It is a word, phrase, verse, or sentence that reads the same backward or forward.  For example: A man, a plan, a canal, Panama.  A list of palindromes can be found at http://www.palindromelist.net/

Do you know what a Palindroom is?  It is a room that looks the same backward or forward.
