Helpful free on-line Spanish verb conjugator

I just ran into this very hepful free on-line verb conjugator for Spanish verbs:
It takes over where "501 Spanish verbs" takes off.
The story about how I found it is interesting:
A Mexican friend was really down in the dumps. I asked him what was wrong and he said everything. He then quoted me a dicho (refrain)(folk saying) which I had never heard before.
He said: "Sólo que me falta es un perro que me mee."
I guessed that "mee" was a vulgar word for urinate. He said that was right. I guessed that the form was subjunctive because it hadn't happened yet and probably wouldn't happen, but I wasn't sure so I asked what the verb was--mear.
That presented an interesting problem on conjugation since verb forms with the accent on the e nearly always change to i or ie, (ex) sentar--siento, sientas, sienta, sentamos, sientan; (ex2)pedir--pido, pides, pide, pedimos, piden. So the first person singular present indicative couldn't possibly be mío or I would have run into it before. A google search for the verb conjugations of "mear" brought me the answer--meo, meas, mea, meamos, mean--no change.
I hope this new resource on congugations will be of help to you all.It will be to me.
