The free dictionary by Farlex

I was looking for an idiom, you know, a set phrase of those you find from time to time in language. Some of those we have in our mother language such as “por los pelos”. And I have books and dictionaries, however I could not remember the English idiom. So, I tried on the internet and the key was there in thefreedictionary.com which I had discovered as a treasure. It is much more than a dictionary, it has got lots of other points: curiosities, phonetics, short texts and games online and other languages. I believe this dictionary deserves a space in the list of favourites of any student of foreign languages. From today I have thefreedictionary.com linked in efnotebloc blogroll at the vertical column on the right.

By the way, to say “por los pelos” in English language one can say “ it was a close shave” or “ it was a near miss” and lots more.

    Whether you have had the privilege of seeing some
    of the world’s most majestic animals up close or simply have appreciated them from afar through books, movies or on television, giant stuffed toys can give you that warm and fuzzy feeling we all hope to find. Who knew that the humble but versatile pool noodle could teach a baby to crawl. Kids are cuddly; always looking for warmth and protection, in toys only soft toys can fulfill this.

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest
    thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    One very interesting element of community is that “who we are with others, is not who we are when alone. The couple clearly enjoy each other’s company during Venus Williams’ clothing line showcase. Many times you will learn about a new person by what they wrote on their profile.
