Hi, I am from Russia. In Proverbs.htm you give this one:
"A nod's as good as a wink to a blind horse"
I thought it meant:
"You can nod or wink to a blind hoarse – all is to no avail."
What was my surprise when I read in English-Russian dictionary it’s meaning:
THE HINT IS TAKEN or BE ABLE TO TAKE A HINT
How is that?
