In English we often say: ''To carry coals to Newcastle.? In Spanish, they say: ''Echor agua en el mar,'' which means to throw water into the sea. The metaphors are different but the meaning is the same: to do something that's absolutely unnecessary. Where we say, ''Barking dogs seldom bite,'' the Spanish speaker is likely to say, ''El gato maullador, nunca buen cazador.'' A meowing cat is never a good hunter. English and Spanish proverbs are only occasionally the same in both languages-but
