I've listed them on a database and where there are on the shelf coresponds with the database, makes it earsier to find what I'm looking for except for the loose ones which have to be added. :)A cabin, luxury I could build a mini library in one. :)

Hi Lizzie and interested parties.

Wish I'd heard about your auction 3 ½ years earlier!

Please message me about any similar BumblePlum auctions you have in future.

Re: "Only You Can Save Mankind"

Does anyone know which African Tribe whose closest word for 'enemy' is 'a friend we haven't met yet'.

I've Googled it and found nothing except a vague reference on a games forum to a Borneo/Malaysian tribe the apparent origin of a "stranger is a friend I haven't met yet". But pardon my french but that sounds like BS because the phrase is officially credited to vaudeville performer Will Rogers.

Are there any QI aficionados who can help. I wanted to use it as a quote for my blog. But there is enough unverified info on the net as it is without me adding to it.

All replies will be rewarded with gratitude and appreciation x
