Basic Spanish

I was updating my IM tools title to "Felis Navidad" which means "Merry Christmas"!! Thought of getting some basic Spanish words and found some.

This may be a start up for persons who see this blog. You can dig into the language more in the net if you want.

My thinking: add a "o" or "el" or "la" sound to english you get spanish (just kidding)
