Gracias, Pippa! Y (looking back -- ¿cómo se dice?) no sé por qué puse "mirando" allí.

Por qué es la Osa, y no el Oso? No recuerdo bien el cuento.

Looking back es mirando hacia atrás, when you are talking about something that happened in the past. In this case I would use another sentence (yet again ) like: "Ahora que lo he vuelto a leer", or "ahora que lo he repasado"

De Wikipedia:
Osa Mayor:
Quote:
Otras muchas civilizaciones han visto en su forma un oso. La mitología griega consideraba que Osa Mayor era la osa en la que había sido convertida Calisto por Artemisa tras haber sido seducida por Zeus

I was in Las Vegas in March.
My girl freind could not come with me.
I am in my mid fourties and she is the same age.
Her teen age children needed her so I went on my own.
The bright lights had faded for me at the end of the week.
So I ran out off Vegas and into the desert.
After a time the night was crystal clear away from the lights of the city.
It was 11 pm in Vagas and 6 am in England So I sms my English rose.
Somthing like this.
Where ever I roam there is a star in the sky pointing me home to you.
Now my princess I can see that star.
She holds my hand and will take my home to you.
Look up now my love. You will see her smile.
Soon the day light we take her light away from you.
She will hold me safe to come home to you.
A automobile A plane and a Train will chase the day light away.
We will look up at that old lady of the night together.
Just the two of us with a little help from our freind of the night.

Yo estaba en Las Vegas en marzo. Mi amiga no pudo venir conmigo.
Estoy en mi años cuarenta a mediados y ella tiene la misma edad.
Sus hijos en edad adolescente la necesitaba, así que fui por mi cuenta.
Las luces brillantes se había desvanecido para mí al final de la semana.
Así que salí corriendo fuera de Vegas y en el desierto.
Después de un tiempo la noche fue muy claro lejos de las luces de la ciudad.
Se fue de 11 horas, en Vagas y las 6 am en Inglaterra Así que mi sms Inglés rosa.
Algo como esto.
Donde quiera que deambulan por allí es una estrella en el cielo apuntando a hogar a tú.
Ahora mi princesa puedo ver esa estrella.
Ella sostiene mi mano y se llevará a mi hogar para tú.
Mire para arriba ahora mi amor. Verá su sonrisa.
Pronto la luz del día toma su luz de distancia de tú.
Se llevará a cabo a salvo de volver a hogar a tú.
Un automóvil de un avión y tren un cazará a la luz del día de distancia.
Vamos a mirar esa señora mayor de la noche juntos.
Apenas el dos de nosotros con un poco de ayuda de nuestro amigo de la noche.

Se dice que más que tres días en Las Vegas es demasiado. Pero no sé si eso es la verdad o no. Sólo sé que por el aire, parece mucho como cualquiera otra pueblita del desierto, sino la franja en el centro donde hay todas las luces ... el resto es un poco anticlimático.

I think you said

You said more than Three day in Las Vegas is to much, I am not sure if that is true or not, I have only been the by air.
Its like any other town in the desert with the strip in the centre that has all the lights... the rest is a bit of a anticlimax.

You got it.

"It's said that more than three days in Las Vegas is too many. But I don't know if that's the truth or not. I only know that by air, it looks like any other little desert town, except for the strip in the middle where all the lights are... the rest is a little anticlimactic."

I would write it like this

I think that thoes that made the film know there Greek mythology.

but it translates in the english directly like this

I think that those who made the film well studied Greek methology.

You missed the negation -- It seems to me that those who made the movie didn't study Greek mythology well.

I didn't even notice, sorry. I was just translating it for you as it appeared in my head when I made the original translation into Spanish.

Uno o dos veces por mes es suficiente para mí. Pero hay una cafeteria a mi trabajo y normalmente como en casa por las noches. No cocino mucho, solamente en los fines de semanas. No quiero trabajar después de trabajar.
