7-syllable shortcut

mountains are tall, rivers are long, heaven is empty.
men are strong, women are beautiful, friends are loyal.
tigers run, dragons fly, elephants are mighty.
kings are arrogant, officials are greedy, freedom is precious.

sadly, signing savvy must be feeling the economic pressure and now limits guests to 5 word look-ups/day. they do have the best videos of the sites i’ve seen, but obviously it’s a bit discouraging. plus, i was let down when my free registration didn’t provide the word list feature (ergo this post), but does seem to get over the limit. not to be too cheap a scammer, but we all got to ration our resources these days. (full membership is under 10/mo,50/yr for you resourceful folks out there; it really is the nicest signing site i’ve yet seen)

other good sites include
