Only the last word: na vrh brda vrba mrda (it means that on the top of hill a willow is stirring, although they usually don't grow on hills). Yes, we all twisted tongues with that one as children. I'd like very much to know who (or what) is your source of information, but I suppose you won't tell me.

As for the rest , I'll try to guess some of them.

1. shells (seashells)?
2. pot?
6. beetle?
7. woodchuck (I think I heard that one)

Sorry abut silly Sally and her silly sheep, can't think of anything.

It reminds me of a phrase "Marry the merry Mary" which one of my professors used trying to teach us the pronunciation of various kinds of e in English.

"Easier" you say. "HA!" I say :D

1. seashells
2. packet? - someone told me this one once but I can't remember how it goes except that it's long
3. rascal?
4. pheasant plucker's late?
5. brassy?
6. bowtie?
7. woodchuck
8. seven?
9. copper?

Oh, I thought you possibly had a friend or even a relative from Croatia, there are many Croats in Australia.

Ready for some music? This year, 2006., is dedicated to one of the greatest composers of all time, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (and my absolute favourite). False or true?

1. Mozart was born in Vienna.
2. He started writing music at an early age of 15.
3. His wife's name was Constance.
4. The film "Amadeus" was directed by Milos Forman.
5. Tom Hulce won an Oscar for his role in that film.
6. Requiem was his last, unfinished work.
7. He wrote only one opera, "Fidelio".
8. According to the legend, his arch enemy was Haydn.
9. He died at 35.
10. His funeral was attended by hundreds of his admirers.
