  1. Vitamin D liquid for babies

    Hello,   My son takes Vigantol and I just have to put it in a spoon and he loves the taste. As he was smaller I would just drop the 1 drop needed into his bottle. Early on when he was BFs I would just myself take vitamin D.    
  2. Refund of tax and fees when canceling a flight

    If there was not a large amount of very specific small prints, why on earth would anybody ever buy a one way ticket? ;-)
  3. Charity items to give

    Would this help? https://www.wohindamit.org/
  4.     Hum... While most US native speak english, the state to state differences are simply much bigger that most europeans believe. 
  5.   Am I the only one with whom practically all germans only want to speak in german with? My german is horrible (maybe B1?). I work in English and essentially only use german occasionally. It sounds wrong, the gramar is inexistent and the sentences barely make sense. Yet almost all the people I meet tell me very politely my german is better than their english and speak to me in german. I am impressed by their willingness to hear me butcher their language.    
  6.   But who wants to speak with them really? I mean, I was raised there, and I barely can have a polite conversation with natives.
  7. Herding cats is what I do all day. And we are all headless chicken.  Yep, guilty as charged.
  8.   I first moved to germany in Dresden. After a few weeks my colleague told me (verbatim) " We know we cannot trust you, you smile too much" This was my first insight on how damm shitty that time in Dresden was going to be, but it was funny as the american complained about me not smiling when I moved to California from Paris.   What is this with smilling I ask?
  9.   Good to know   Sorry I digress, I lived in the UK for a short while after a long stint in California... I still wonder if the people really did not understand what I was saying or if they were just being asses.  And don't get me started on that person who I asked where I could fill the tank of my car and who answered "I assume you mean petrol" with a snotty attitude.
