Marriage congratulations in Japanese

Hey hey :) I would love to write the appropriate congratulations on a card for my friends who are getting married next month. What would be correct to say to congratulate them?

They're a young couple, first marriage, if that makes any difference.

Also if you could write it in romaji so I am forced to go look up the hiragana myself and start practising it I would appreciate it so it's not a TOTAL cheat ;) (also some of the hiragana fonts I've seen on LJ are SO TINY that I would have trouble looking them up the other way :s)

Arigatou gozaimasu! :D

Spanish poetry and lyrics

Hello dear Spanish-speaking linguaphiles!

What Spanish poetry or lyrics do you know that would be nice to write on a postcard for a child aged 9-13?

I have an SOS children's village sponsorship for a child of that age group to whom I would like to send postcards. As far as I know, the child just speaks (and reads) Spanish. So I thought if I wrote spanish texts on the cards, they wouldn't have to be translated and the child could read them directly.

I understand very little Spanish, so it would be great if you could add a rough translation or a short summary for my benefit.

Thank you for your help :)

Russian email address

Background: I studied Russian in college nearly ten years ago, and haven't done anything with it since. Apologies, then, if this is a total noob question.

Question: I came across this post at learn_french. (I suspect it is of the spammy sort, but that's neither here nor there.) At the end, the poster says: "Возникшие вопросы и заявки на участие высылайте, пожалуйста, на мой email: Katerina.Tulyankina собака gmail.com." Can anyone explain why the @ is called собака?
