Madre de Acogida

People,

I came across this expression madre de acojida. Is this the same as foster mother?

Is there such a term as madre adoptiva? What would be the difference ?

A Saving Grace

People,

How would one say "saving grace" in Spanish?

For example:

This went bad, and the other went bad, and so on; but the saving grace was that something good happened!

I thank you all...

I believe that, in English, "Cisco" used to be slang usage for Francisco or, more specifically, San Francisco was referred to as Cisco.

But the generally accepted abbreviation for...

Rusty,

Thanks for the help.

It seems that they don't say it that way in Español, though. I think that I would just have to explain it out, as you said.

Cabriarse?

People,

I know it's slang because it's not in any dictionary.

But, is cabriarse spelt with an i or an e?

cabriarme? cabrearme?

Cash In my Chips

Rusty, Poli,

I was thinking more along metaphorical lines.

I think Poli got it, but I didn't know they say "chips" in Spanish.

Isn't there some way of expressing the idea in an organic way?...

Well, it must be slang usage. I know a couple of Caribeños, I'll have to look them up and see. Then I'll get back to you all.

It might be something Andalusian, too.

Fallo ...

En Puerto Rico solía oir "!que fallo" para decir jolin!, o caramba!

Pero no me acuerdo si era "que fallo", o "que falla".

You know, aleCcowan,

I think that I wasn't taking into consideration all of the ways that we use "otherwise".

I have seen "por lo demás" translated as "otherwise". But it seems that "caso contrário" or "de não ser así" translate the word "otherwise" better.

I am wondering if something like "as...
