I'm looking forward to the next offline with PH, when he and I can speak Hebrew with each other so as to confuse the other guys. How do you say, "Nice tannins" in Hebrew anyway?

Actually a word I learned that easy to say, and might be useful is (and I'm transliterating here) is:
Last time I was in Israel, Stef and I turned to my sister and asked her what some signs were saying as we did not know the words and my sister turns to us laughing and says just sound it at - they were just English words written in Hebrew letters so looked strange to us but simply said what they were in English. Like television and espresso (I know not english but sane result) looked weird in Hebrew
